1. Calvin Ridley – Alabama
Oh, the Ravens should target the best player in the NFL Draft? Well yea, duh. Ridley is an impressive receiver, with good hands, good route-running ability, and solid quickness.
He finished last season with 55 catches for 967 yards and four touchdowns, and if you were expecting gawdier numbers from the consensus top receiver in the NFL Draft, I can understand that. But Alabama utilized a running quarterback in Jalen Hurts while simultaneously focusin more on its run game than its passing attack.
Ridley isn’t perfect though, there are concerns about his size, specifically the fact that he comes in fairly thin at 188 pounds for his 6’1″ frame. Still, Ridley is a great talent and if he falls to the Baltimore Ravens (which I think is entirely possible), they’d be crazy not to grab him.
