    Doss Fully Recovered and 10 pounds heavier



    http://blogs.baltimoreravens.com/201...t-tandon-doss/

    “What was different from a year ago when he was an unproductive rookie is how Doss rapidly accelerated after the catch, aggressively picking up yards and leaving defensive backs trailing behind him,” Wilson wrote.

    “The hesitation that was obvious in Doss’ game last year has vanished.”
    He was playing at about 200 lbs last year so he's up around 210 and now has the burst that made Flacco like him, I'm excited to see what he can do this year.

    For those counting out Doss already...

    somethings different about tandon doss

    There seems to be a faction, although small, that talks of Doss being a bust (way premature) and Williams being better simply because he played more last year. Ive been pretty adamant that Doss' injury (two sports hernias) was the main reason why he wasnt up to full speed last year (he played his entire last college season with them), and the only reason he didnt get PT (ST certainly attributed to it as well though). It appears hes back to his old self and even better, isnt still learning the playbook, which is when the game really slows down for young players. I still expect a good season from Doss, even with Jones now in the mix. You cant coach sure hands, and Doss may be the best on the team in that category. I think its possible, maybe even likely, he beats out Jones for the majority of PT as #3 and Jones is limited mostly to ST where hes much more of an asset. thoughts?

    Great stuff!

    I'd love to see him take the #3 WR spot.

    Been waiting for some qualified information on Doss. Assuming, he knows the offense (like an older BR.com article would lead us to believe), and asssuming he can get back to a 4.5-4.55 40 time--if not already, I still think that he will be the #3 by October.

    Can a 4th round pick be a bust? Doss has to beat the odds to have a career longer than a couple of years. Even if he doesn't make the team this year you can't really call him a bust.

    I don't think a 4th rounder can be a bust, per se, but there has been some high expectations on the kid considering it's been reported about how good his hands are.

    Id say top 4 rounds you have to have some expectation for them. 1st being a future star, 2/3 being a future good player, and 3/4 being future contributors, each GM being a little different. maybe others feel its top 3, but you certainly can have a bust in the 4th, it is after all the top half of the draft still. if he werent to make the team after only one year and hardly any PT, id say thats worthy of the "bust" label. i feel some people think that might be possible, simply because he didnt play last year.

    Ill put my hat in as a guy with high expectations. I think he may end up a more complete WR than Torrey, although maybe not statistically (kind of like Brown vs Wallace). I dont look at 4th round picks as throw aways, a lot of our better players have come from that area of the draft, certainly the last few years, with drafts getting deeper its just as important to hit there as it is early.

    I think Tandon will be the no. 3 receiver next year but will get plenty of burn in 4 receiver sets that the Ravens are going to employ.

    On a side note, I clicked on the link and scrolled down to an article on why the Ravens are the least hated team in the AFC North by Bungles fans. Here's an excerpt on what does rub Bengals fans.

    “What rubs Bengals fans the wrong way about the purple and black is their cockiness and ‘swagger,’” wrote Cincy Jungle blogger Anthony Cosenza. “The Ravens are one of the mouthiest teams in the NFL, led by Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs and even Joe Flacco. They back up their talk more often than not with their physicality, and constantly play with a chip on their shoulders.”

    Flacco is not the deaf mute that so many of him make him out to be.

    Here's my take on round expectations

    1st - starter/potential All Pro or Pro-bowler
    2nd - starter/potential pro-bowler
    3rd - key contributor/potential starter
    4th - depth/potential key contributor
    5th - ST contributor/potential depth/rotation player
    6 & 7th - practice squad/ST contributor

    I think Tandon is going to be a depth guy this year as the 4th receiver but by mid-season will become a key contributor through ST's or in different offensive packages(I hope its through his play in practice and not through poor play above him or injuries).

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Jones start the season as the #3 but then get benched after a critical dropped pass at some point in favor of the sure-handed Doss.

    Great news, I'm a Doss fan, was one of my fav prospects in that draft class. Hopefully he builds on this and is able to get on the field as the 3rd WR and show his talents, if he indeed have the burst and 4.5 speed he showed in college i think he starts to show why he was being mentioned as a possible 2nd round pick if healthy.
