    Re: WR Situation -- How bad is it?



    Here's what I think...

    After Round 3, it made most sense to give our own guys a shot. All a 4th round WR would give us over a current guy is uncertainty/hope. Hope that they start better than a Doss or Streeter, but uncertainty because their abilities are similar.

    While this doesn't fit the plan at C (Ozzie drafts a guy to compete with higher draft pick from last year?), the plan at WR seems to be "we picked these young guys, let them show if they were the right moves". If they weren't, WR becomes a priority early next year.

    I just hope someone steps it up, ala Torrey in 2011.

    LOL, and we just took Aaron Mellette.

    So there's our WR help. I like the pick.

    This reminds me of the 2009 season when we were horrible at corner. Everyone expected us to draft corners in 2010. We didn't draft any. That year we traded for Josh Wilson in August. The Ravens liked the guys they had and they played well in 2010. Carr, Wilson and Webb before he was hurt had solid years. None of us expected Webb to play well based on 2009. Our dbs went from a position of weakness to one of strength. Oz watches every practice and he knows what he has. He has passed on some notable wide receiver prospects in this draft. He must feel they aren't better than what we already have.

    Doss has been a disappointment so far. We tried to force feed him last year and all I saw were drops. Streeter appears to have the hands of a snake. I think Jacoby is a decent third receiver, but without a solid number 2, Torrey gets blanketed. I hope Ozzie has something up his sleeve (like a low-cost veteran free agent) because I do not see a solid core of wide receivers on this roster.

    Maybe if we added a young Jerry Rice and a young Jonathan Ogden, at those two positions you mention.

    You think we are the best WR ever and best LT ever behind the Broncos, Texans and Pats?

    Aaron Mellette got schooled at the Sr Bowl. No separation. Tipped off just about every route.
    While I certainly don't expect him to start in 2013 (if ever), he has no attribute that's special or outstanding.
    He has below average feet, average speed, below average strength and below average route running.
    Why even bother?

    Settle down. John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco's Baltimore Ravens can beat any team, anywhere.

    Re: WR Situation -- How bad is it?

    Ozzie said there was never a situation where a WR was taken the spot before our pick. So those who think we missed out on Patton, that doesn't seem to be the case

    I hear this a bunch in regards to Doss. What games stand out to you where he had drops? I can only remember the Indianapolis game, where there were some passes in the end zone. Joe targeted him twice and both would have been tough catches.

    I would cream myself with happiness if any of these guys amounted to something next year, but I have a feeling my pants will end up cream-free.

    Doss looks great in practice, but goes all alligator arms when he sees real action. Reed is a nice special teamer. Deonte looked good, but won't get a chance, same with Laquan. Streeter can't catch.

    Even Jacoby has disappointed as a number 2 his entire career. Barring a trade or free agent pick up, our passing game could be look for Torrey deep, check for Pitta in the middle, dump off to Rice. Anyone who can defend that should have an easy day.

    Hope I am wrong

    The more I.think about it the more I think Thompson or the dark horse Laquan. I just think people overrate Doss so much. It's not even funny.

    FYI he has never started a game.

    The Baltimore Ravens signed Williams as an undrafted free agent in 2011. Making the roster completed a rather remarkable story for Williams. A Baltimore native who came from a poor background, with only moderate success in college due to injuries, and thus overlooked by many NFL scouts. Yet he was invited to Ravens training camp, and though only having a very short offseason to prepare due to the NFL lockout, he still made the active roster, and is now playing for the team he grew up as fan of.
    In the preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles, he made three catches for 46 yards and was the team's second leading receiver behind tight end Dennis Pitta.[9] Because of injury to Lee Evans, Williams played several games of the 2011 season as the Ravens' third receiver, including the Sunday Night Football matchup which saw the team sweep their heated rival Pittsburgh Steelers, in which he notched two big receptions for first downs. Along with time at receiver, he has also been a special teams standout, recording 4 tackles in his rookie season while also returning 5 kicks for 109 yards on a 21.8 yard average in 2011

    Re: WR Situation -- How bad is it?

    I think they like who they have on the roster to be honest and they never appeared to actively chase a WR in the draft. They may add a vet if someone becomes available, but it looks like that are content with the WR by committee approach.
