    Not, "in the NFL", just for the Ravens. That bar isn't nearly as high.

    I am optimistic on Hurst, but I wouldn't guarantee that he'll double the production that recent history suggests we should expect.
    Joe Flacco loves throwing to his TEs and he loves reliable pass catchers. Hurst fits both descriptions. Brown is an injury risk and while Snead may be solid in the slot, I don't anticipate him setting the world on fire. Hurst is the only other guy, outside of Crabtree, who looks to be someone viable in the redzone as well. He will see a lot of targets.

    I do agree there. We don't have enough reliable alternatives to compete for targets. I also think his age and experience as a failed pro in another sport might help him come along a little quicker. But I would be surprised to see him up at 600+ receiving yards his first year. It just doesn't happen that often. Hopefully I'm wrong.

    This is how I see it going down too. Crabtree is going to be his Boldin, Hurst will be his Pitta, there will still be plenty of dump offs to the flats to the RB/FB/backup TE, and the rest of the WR will get the scraps with 1-2 touches a game each.

    Has anybody claimed "best in the NFL?" It won't even be the best in our division.

    But it is, for a Ravens group, outstanding; at least on paper.
