    We need a beast WR



    I am talking about the physical freaks like Dez Bryant, Demaryius Thomas, etc.

    We've never really had one. Why waste a single year of Flacco in his prime? Torrey is great but doesn't fit the "beast" description.

    The only guy that looks to fit this description this year is Cordarelle Patterson.

    If he is still around at like 15, I saw screw it - let's trade up to get him.

    Next year it looks like the biggest WR names are Marqise Lee and Sammy Watkins. I don't think either of these guys fit the "beast" description.

    Again, my major point is why waste a single year of Flacco in his prime? Give him a weapon he has never had.

    I'd rather Da'Rick Rogers. He isn't as fast as Patterson, but he is more of a finished product.

    Patterson may take 2-3 years before really hitting his stride.

    We need an LT before WR, imo, but yes, we need them both.

    Way more than an SS or ILB or any other position.

    It would probably take the Ravens first,second and third round picks to move from 32 to 15.Not sure it's such a great idea for a team with the Ravens needs to be swapping three for one when you consider the fact that beyond the first few picks there is a much greater chance of a bust.

    Use next year's pick(s). Obviously using this year's picks to move up in rd. 1 is not too feasible since they are such low picks.

    We have Torrey and Pitta as our only real receiving threats. Jacoby has bad hands and none of the other guys have shown much and were 4th round or later picks.

    A young, explosive, physical WR that can start and impact ASAP would give our OFF a huge boost.

    I know Patterson is perceived as raw and perhaps lacking in playbook knowledge, but he is a threat to score whenever he gets the ball.

    No way. If Oz goes all in and moves halfway up the draft board, its gotta be Tavon Austin!!! With Torrey and Jacoby stretching the field, imagine all the space in the middle for Tavon to do what he does. Even as a slot receiver, Austin is the best WR in this class. Flacco would be unstoppable.

    So you're expecting next year's pick will be significantly higher?

    Doesn't matter, Ozzie won't do it. Simply WILL NOT trade a future 1st away.

    Well it can't be any lower.

    I know. I am just jealous of the WRs some of these other QBs are blessed with.

    Dez. Julio. Demaryius. etc.

    I don't know. With Cameron gone, I could see Torrey being a beast. He's super fast, has gotten much better at catching, and can jump super high. His attitude and drive is top notch. He won't be Calvin Johnson, but he can be great.

    Are you suggesting that it can be dangerous dealing away future number one picks for unproven players?

    Plus he is a contortionist in the air when going for the ball.

    But his speed opens up the middle of the field and we do need somebody to take advantage of that from the slot. Maybe Pitta, Dickson, or Doss can fill that void. But man...a guy like Austin. If he falls to the 20's (which he won't), Oz should jump.
