Many are hoping and even predicting that the Ravens could fare a lot better on offense this season. If so, wide receiver Torrey Smith could be one of the big reasons why.

Smith had a strong rookie season in 2011, growing into one of the best young wide receivers in the NFL. He finished with 50 catches for 841 yards and seven touchdowns, improving and really coming into his own as the season went on.
