The Ravens definitely need an upgrade at the receiver position.

With the 16th pick of the 2018 DBN Community NFL Mock Draft, the Baltimore Ravens select...

Calvin Ridley, WR, Alabama

The selection and write-up were made by Fluke_on_target:

If there is one blemish on the record of Ozzie Newsome, its the simple fact this franchise is awful at drafting and developing wide receivers. In the last six drafts, he has drafted seven of them, only two still play in the league and one is is the 26th overall pick of 2015, who has 43 catches lifetime. The last two seasons have seen the Ravens just miss the playoffs in the final week so its a talented roster. A playmaker like Ridley, who is a excellent route runner with good hands will help Joe Flacco. He’s not a physical player for the 50/50 ball but he’s cat-quick and can beat press coverage. Its a top 10 defense, a typical Ozzie Newsome team.

Pokorny: “Try and try again. The Ravens find themselves in a bad situation because they really haven’t had success finding good receivers via the draft. If they hit on one, it’ll be big for the franchise — but another bust, and they will eventually fall behind the Browns in the AFC North. One problem is that while Ridley projects as a solid NFL receiver, even as a mid-first round pick, the expectations aren’t that he would be among the league’s elite.”

The Los Angeles Chargers are up next, led by Crawford_T.
