    Marlon Brown



    it looks like he has "IT" which no other receiver besides Torrey possesses...where do you think he is going to be on the depth chart? is he going to run with the 1s in practice? any chance he starts as a wr2/wr3?

    I am guessing that he and Jones will split snaps at WR. Brown is probably not ready mentally to be a full time starter. Jones has limitations along with his special teams duties.

    I think he makes the 53 man roster. The only stopping him from being ahead of Jones is experience, IMO.

    He was a stud in HS and a top recruit. Injuries at GA hurt his production

    I'd like see him, Mallette, Stokely, J Jones, T Smith, and a ham sandwich make the roster.

    Re: Marlon Brown

    He could be as high as our 4th best WR. Depends on how loyal they are going to be with Doss/LaQuan. I don't know what else he can do on ST's, etc. Could still come down to that. In all likelihood he goes to the PS. I say this because he's this year's "guy who looks good in preseason but the team ends up favoring some other guy for whatever reason" guy. Surely needs some more seasoning, and if Stokely can run the "move the chains" routes for us then our top 3 is set, so depth is more about versatility. Brown looks a little small to do much on ST's, but what do I know? I like him too, and right now like him more than Doss.

    Of course, wait till next week when Brown is the one not making the hot read and running Joe into a pick-6, and Doss reels in a TD. It'll probably happen like that at some stage so... shit's gonna happen. At some point we need to break in some WRs unless we plan to keep renting vets forever.

    For now let's just pray Stokely picks up the playbook like a maniac and we don't have to deal too much with "who's the #4 WR"?

    I hope we keep him over that bum Tandon Doss

    Brown & Stokely were two of the positives from tonight's game. Brown just seams like a playmaker. I think he makes the team if he turns in another solid performance next week.

    No. I don't think this way of looking at it is fair. Brown has been looking great all preseason, while Doss has looked terrible.

    And as far as versatility, Brown has been playing better on special teams than Doss. He had a huge block on Asa Jackson's touchdown return.

    Also, it's important to note that each one of Brown's touchdowns were on different type routes.

    Feels like Marlon Brown played his way onto the team this year with his performance tonight. I hope they continue to give him chances into the regular season.

    And I think it's time to send Doss on his way.

    Brown has great size and speed combo, hopefully he stays healthy. He has good instincts also. Stokely Still quick, shifty with a nose for the chains. Doss is gone. Not a good athelete and lacks focus.

    Re: Marlon Brown

    I guess the Ravens are making a tough philosophical decision here...whether to protect their guys Mellette/Williams/Doss/Thompson or give the roster spot to Brown, who has done everything to earn it. I think putting Brown on the PS is far too risky a maneuver.

    It's just a sticky situation because of the Streeter/Doss/Williams/Thompson/Mellette/Brown sextet, the two guys who have done the least impressing are the two highest draft picks, Doss and Streeter.

    Streeter is clearly not in contention for a roster spot

    So out of Doss/LaQuan/Deonte/Mellette/M.Brown, who gets the two guaranteed spots? Is there a 6th spot? Will they go with seven? Is Thompson headed to IR? Is Thompson assured a roster spot because of his impressive contributions when given a chance?

    Re: Marlon Brown

    I was impressed with him, but as with Mellette, not sure either of them are capable of being a true #2 THIS year. Splitting time with each other, along with Jones, is probably the best way forward with that position, with Smith as the 1 and Stokley as the 3.

    I don't think there is any way he isn't on the team. Doss is hanging by a thread at this point and the only reason for that is because he was a 4th round pick a couple years ago. Wouldn't surprise me if they tried to move him for a late round pick, much like David Reed, he could also probably use a change of scenery at this point. If not, I think he's cut.

    Smith/Jones/Stokley/Mellette/Brown/Thompson, IMO. Unless Thompson is a longer term injury, then Williams stays. If they go by what we've seen on the field and not draft position, it's those guys. I've not been in the "Cut Doss" camp, but after tonight, what exactly has he done besides be a 4th round pick that warrants him being on this team?

    I agree that they can't expose Brown or Mellette to the other teams. They've certainly shown enough to get picked up as a 5th or 6th receiver for some team to stash for a year if the Ravens don't keep them.
