The Baltimore Ravens are in desperate need of wide receiver depth for the 2018 season. There are a number of ways they could address that, whether through free agency, a trade, or through the NFL Draft, but one way or another, it needs to be addressed.
This isn’t news to the Baltimore Ravens either, as their first signing of this year’s offseason was Canadian Football League star wide receiver DeVier Posey. We’ve also argued here that free agent wide receiver Sammy Watkins is someone the team should consider as well.
As it stands, the only receivers under contract for 2018 are Jeremy Maclin, Breshad Perriman, Chris Moore, and Tim White. The team lost receivers Mike Wallace and Michael Campanaro to free agency this offseason.
Maclin didn’t seem to have the chemistry with Joe Flacco that was necessary for success this past season, Perriman is looking more and more like one of the biggest draft busts in Baltimore Ravens history, and Moore and White are fairly average receivers.
Which is why the NFL Draft is a good place for the Baltimore Ravens to look to address their need at wide receiver. Last year, the team was heavily targeting wide receiver Corey Davis before he (and a number of other receivers) got snatched up before the Ravens could get to him.
So here, we’ll take a look at 10 wide receivers the Baltimore Ravens could target in the NFL Draft. Some are guys they’d have to grab with their first pick (the 16th-overall pick), and others are guys they might be able to wait on.
