    A mock draft has us taking DeAndre Hopkins, What do you guys think?



    This is the first draft I have seen with the Ravens going Wide Out. I haven't been following too much of the drafts, but I like this pick with us losing Boldin. Hop is pretty nasty, have you guys seen the video of him catching all those passes with one hand. The guy is a good wide out. I like it.

    With the last pick in the first round, i just want a guy that can come in and perform. I think we will get that, whether it is Hopkins, Te'o or someone else. I want another ring, who is with me.

    I'm just watching the Clemson vs LSU game from last season, and Hopkins runs great routes, turns on a dime and just gets open. He's got really good hands too, looks so effortless catching the ball.

    So, the WR board seems to go like this:

    1. Coradarrelle Patterson
    2. Tavon Austin
    3. Keenan Allen, Justin Harper, DeAndre Hopkins
    6. Terrance Williams, Robert Woods
    9. Quinton Patton, Stedman Bailey

    We won't have a shot at 1 or 2, and any of the 3-way tie behind them seems to be pretty good options as well.

    His play screams a young Anquan Boldin.
    That right there, seems pretty great. The only thing that seems to be rough on him is "contested catches". Not even so much going over the middle, but making catches in tight coverage. Hopefully, he can be coached up in that respect and able to replicate some of Boldin's clutch catch style.

    Yup, that's him. I would be happy with Allen too. He reminds me of Boldin as well. Just a little faster on the field, but a lot of this film shows him catching passes between defenders and jumping for contested catches. Allen or Hopkins would be my targets.

    We currently don't have a WR like Hopkins, unless you are a believer in Doss. I think he'd fit right in and be a good addition. I'd have no complaints with taking him at #32.

    I see WR as the only position we need multiple players at. LT we need but we wont be able to get one this year that is an immediate contributor. We NEED to get Joe some targets though. Smith is great but he cant do it by himself. We have Pitta but outside of them we have no guys who can take pressure off of Joe. Doss has had inconsistent hands which is worrisome because that was supposed to be his biggest asset. Reed has shown me nothing really. I think we need to dedicate some early picks to WR. I have advocated for Hopkins and Da'Rick Rogers for a while now.

    I'd be pretty happy with him. Prefer him over similarly ranked players like Allen and Patton.

    I think Green Bay takes him if he's still there.

    I would laugh very hard at GB if they take a WR in the first.

    Oh? You watch them last year without Jennings? I highly doubt James Jones is going to be able to improve upon, let alone repeat his performance last year.

    On Friday, I heard Tim Ryan and Pat Kirwan on their show on NFL Radio. They were doing a mock draft and had us selecting WR Justin Hunter out of Tennessee at #32. Ryan said "The Ravens throw everyone a curve and take Justin Hunter." He is 6'4" and can fly, but a little raw. How would you guys feel about Hunter?

    I hope that's a typo.

    There is also Wheaton, Rogers, Swope, Dobson - all of whom wouldn't be bad options if the Ravens choose to do something else with the early pick.

    Quinton Patton is better than Patterson, Williams, Hunter, and Woods IMO. I have him as my 4th ranked WR right now. I don't really watch much on WRs, I get most of my info from Cosell's opinions, and great posters who know their stuff on WRs on this board, like BPR, Wickedsolo, bmorecareful etc... Patton just looked way better on film too than people are giving him credit for. I think Patterson is way over hyped, he's like this years version of Stephen Hill.

    My top 5:

    1. Tavon Austin
    2. DeAndre Hopkins
    3. Keenan Allen
    4. Quinton Patton
    5. Coradarrelle Patterson (I have him here purely because of measurements and freakish athletic ability, he could be special if he actually learns how to become a better wide out on the field. I totally get that he's likely going to get drafted before any of the guys I've listed above because of his physical traits.)

    I think we take Austin without a doubt if he falls to 32, which I HIGHLY doubt happens. Other than that, I think Hopkins and Patton offers us something we have never really had since Derrick Mason... a guy who can consistently get separation without just using his speed to run deep. Patton and Hopkins would give us something we desperately need on offense. I would be happy with Hopkins at 32, but would rather trade back and get him at 37 or something like that if we could. Patton would be a nice pick up at 62 if we don't get Hopkins. I like Hopkins a little better because he's bigger and more athletic, and he also looked really good against some of the nations best corner backs.

    I like Justin Harper a lot more than guys apparently do on the board.

    Unfortunately, he was coming off a torn ACL, so I certainly think he will be even better on the second year recovering from his injury.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.
