4. Maxx Williams
Maxx Williams was drafted in the second round of the 2015 draft. The 6-foot-4 Minnesota native fits a good tight end mold with explosive speed for his size. That’s why the Ravens have high hopes for him. But, don’t expect all those hopes to be fulfilled this season.
The Minnesota native showed flashes of his potential in his seven starts during his rookie season with the Ravens as he collected 32 receptions for 268 yards and one touchdown.
In his sophomore season, Williams suffered a knee injury that sidelined him for 12 games in 2016 and was placed on the injured reserve. But, they seem to be clearing up as coach John Harbaugh expects Williams to be back for training camp.
Which means that the Ravens will be hoping for a big third year for him. But don’t expect for Williams to be out on the field too much. As according to The Baltimore Sun Coach Harbaugh said that William’s injuries ” required a surgery “never used for a football player before.” So with that said, don’t expect the Ravens to rush Williams into the Ravens starting tight end this season, yet, but a player that will battle for the starting role in 2018.
