He cited the early reports from camp that he wasn't having much success early on, thus the coaches are now justifying the draft pick and throwing him to the wolves. Make or break.

    Makes sense but I'm not sure I buy it fully. Just thought it was an interesting perspective. Kirwin believe Mellette will be anywhere from the 5th WR to a practice squad guy this year.
    I don't buy that. If it was Doss I could see that scenario. Mellette was a 7th rounder many did not think would make the team. If they were doing that it would be to shut up the fans clamoring for him to start. I don't know if he will work out but I also don't think they are running him with the ones as a last straw. It just doesn't make sense to me with him being a 7th round rookie.

    Not even entertaining this notion at all, jacoby inconsistent, Doss major disappointment hence the stokely move, Thompson hurt and Reid showing nothing outside of special teams..the team has never done this with other late round reciever as far i know, even when all we had was Derrick Mason and Mark Clayton, i don't remember Clarence Moore running with the 1s or Elon Riley or not even Devard Darling as much. Outside of Torrey Smith who else is lighing it up? If they FO and coaching staff had that muh confidence in the crop they wouldn't sign Stokely and Melette wouldn't even see time with the 1s at all give that he's a 7th rounder if anything it shows the current recieving corp vets outside of Torrey that they are a sorry bunch of muthafuckas letting a 7th round rookie show them up, the fact that he is eating up DBs is every which way shows that the wanna see more of Melette than Doss, Reid and Jones at this point. Melette has done more than Doss and Reid combined right now.

    Clarence Moore actually got into some games. He lost the Cinci game allowing them to come back late after he caught the ball but didn't crawl forward for the first down. He was afraid of extending his arm and got the name allegator arms.

    That play kept us out of the POs.

    Love the potential, but I don't know about starter. Maybe next year.
    Next year will be just fine. And we'll have Jensen then, too. And Kapron-Moore (SP?) The future is bright

    I remember he alligator armed at least 3 passes in the opening night Colts game in 2005...the game where Boller got hurt and fans cheered.

    I was waiting for his "for who, for what?" Statement to the media after the game.

    What a coward.

    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.

    Why would the coaching staff throw a 7th round pick to the wolves? Those guys hardly make the team anyways if not stashed on the PS for development if they show promise. Like i said if anything it shows how sorry the rest of the receivers are outside of Torrey.

    To be fair, and Deonte Thompson. There's no reason to assume Thompson is a sorry player. Well, unless if his one drop in the rain is enough to prove he's worthless.

    I'm pretty happy with this draft class overall. I remember on draft night this board and the experts weren't particularly happy with the Wagner pick because his stock had fallen. But i agree with the mellette notion, he's earned the playing time with the ones by being better than his competition. Well see come Thursday

    I heard the segment too. It wasn't put like that, that it's 'perform or you're out'. Let's face it, he's likely out anyway as a 7th, so it was more along the lines of here's your chance kid, let's see what you've got.

    I agree he's likely PS candidate but with this bunch, somebody has to step up... don't they?

    Oh okay, I was just saying in general.

    I split it up like this:

    Promising: Mellette, Deonte, Laquan
    Hmm: Marlon Brown
    unlikely to succeed: Reed, Doss

    Mellette, Deonte, and Laquan look like the most natural receivers to me.

    This yahoo link lists the top performers of camp in 2 pre-season games. No real
    surprises mentioning D. Smith as possibly the Ravens best signing and the rise
    of #7 pick Mellette.

    But Ricky Wagner? I've read nothing about him but he has been playing a good LT
    in both pre-season games. He was a good lineman at Wisconsin but had a poor Sr
    year and was injured but now could be our future LT replacing Mc Kinney.

    He could be the steal of the draft's third day.
