2011 Wide Receiver Draft Prospects That I Believe Could Benefit The Ravens

 

WR Torrey Smith

Height: 6’1

Weight: 205Ibs

School: University of Maryland

             Torrey Smith is a wide out with blazing speed and has had his best year in 2010 gaining 67 receptions with 1,055 receiving yards. Torrey Smith cannot only play a role on the offensive side of the ball but as well play in special teams as a kick returner,where he had averaged 25.9 yards per kick returns also returning two for a touchdown in 2009. Torrey Smith is projected to be taking in the second round but for teams desperate to have a deep vertical threat he could be taken in the first round. The Ravens could use a player like Torrey Smith because he extremely fast, has good hands, and can bring some value to the kick return position if David Reed gets hurt/gets more involved in the offense.

WR Titus Young

Height: 5’11”

Weight: 175Ibs

School: Boise State

                Titus Young like Torrey Smith is very fast and can play on special teams as a kick returner. Titus Young has good hands, solid route running, and  the ability to make plays every time he gets the ball, gaining 71 receptions with 1,216 receiving yards and 9 touchdowns in 2010.  Titus Young has been compared to NFL Receivers such as Santana Moss, DeSean Jackson, and Mike Wallace; I believe if he is available in the second round the Ravens should draft him because he can give the Ravens that vertical deep treat that they were lacking on the field last year also possibly be a replacement for Derrick Mason once he retires.

WR Greg Little

Height: 6’3

Weight: 220Ibs

School: North Carolina

        Greg little was a running back but in 2009 he was converted in to a wide receiver gaining 61 receptions and 724 receiving yards. Greg Little performance in 2009 was impressive for being a first time wide receiver and unfortunately he wasn’t able to show in 2010 how much he improve because he was suspended. Greg little has good speed, very physical, tough to bring down, good hands, able to jump high for high passes, and is a good blocker.  Greg Little seems to fit what the Ravens love and that’s tough and physical players; his skills as a wide out may not be considered  polished at the moment but he still could be steal in the third/forth round of the draft.

WR Dwayne Harris

Height: 6’0”

Weight: 205Ibs

 School: East Carolina

            Dwayne Harris is a wide out with good hands, good speed, very physical, and hard to bring down when opposing defensive players go to tackle him. Dwayne Harris Playing style seems similar to Anquan Boldin with his toughness and some experience as being a quarterback; He can work the middle of the field, has a good burst off the line of scrimmage, gets good yards after the catch, can be dangerous as a punt returner, and gets good separation when up against man coverage .If the Ravens were to draft Dwayne Harris he would provide  some good depth at the punt return position and could become a very reliable third/forth wide out.Dwayne Harris is projected to be taken in the third/forth round and I believe whatever team picks him could  have a player that would be a impact to their team right away.

WR  Leonard Hankerson

Height:6’3”

Weight: 205Ibs

School: Miami

   Leonard Hankerson has good size, speed, route running, great leaping ability, and body control. Leonard Hankerson has been making noise lately with his performance at the senior bowl and you can tell that he has all the skills to be a great wide out in The NFL; In 2010 he had 72 reception with 1,156 receiving yards and 13 touchdown also he broke the record of former wide out/hall of famer Michael Irvin for most touchdowns catches in a single season as a Miami Hurricane. Leonard Hankerson is projected to be taken in the second round and if the Ravens are able to draft him then the Ravens offense could be dangerous.

WR DeAndre Brown

Height: 6’6”

Weight: 239Ibs

School: Southern Mississippi

        DeAndre Brown has all you could ever want from a wide out with his speed, good hands, toughness, leaping ability, and size. DeAndre Brown best year was in 2008 gaining 67 receptions, 1,117 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns but since then his production has falling; DeAndre Brown could  had been acknowledge  as one of  the top wide out coming out of college to this year draft but injuries and work ethics/character issues has held him back. The Ravens could draft Deandre Brown because he has great potentials to be a dynamic player but I see him going in the later rounds  such as the fifth/sixth round in the draft.

WR Randall Cobb

Height: 5’11

Weight: 186Ibs

School: Kentucky

            Randall Cobb is very versatile player that has played Quarterback, Wide out, and Running back.  Randall Cobb is very elusive in open field, great runner after the catch, and can play on special teams as kick returner/punt returner. Randall Cobb gained 84 receptions, 1,017 receiving yards, 7 touch downs, had 55 rushing attempts, 424 rushing yards, 58 passing yards, and 3 passing touchdowns. Randall Cobb could be taking in the third round of the draft but if The Ravens are around to get him imagine how he could be used on our offense such as the wildcat, as a running back, the slot, the screen, and let’s not forget he can be used on special teams where he could be kick returner or punt returner.

WR Jerrel Jernigan

Height: 5’9

     Weight: 190Ibs

School: Troy

 

             Jerrel Jernigan is one of the fastest wide out coming out of college to the draft with good hands, instant acceleration, and quarterback experience. Jerrel Jernigan is also a physical player that can make things  happen once he  has the ball in his hand also he can  be used in the wild cat as a quarterback or a runningback. Jerrel Jernigan gained 84 receptions, 822 receiving yards, six touchdowns, 45 rushing attempts,322 rushing yards,3 touchdowns, 41 passing yards, and  passing one touchdown. I highly believe if The Ravens draft this player he will give them everything they need and won’t disappoint but some people may over look him because of his height but don’t let that fool you. I think Jerrel Jernigan maybe taken in the third round of the draft.
