The Ravens offense performance last year wasn't up to expectation and some believe that the lack of speed on the field was the reason for its down fall. The Ravens offense had new faces/players playing out of their original position such as David Reed, Ed Dickson, Anquan Boldin, Marshall Yanda, Michael Oher, Donte Stallworth, Dennis Pitta, and T.J Housmanzadeh.
The Ravens offense would seem to be unstoppable with so much talent but they were stoppable. The Ravens offense showed flashes of explosiveness but why wasn't it explosive all the time? Was it because Derrick Mason is 37? Was it because Cam Cameron didn’t know what he was doing? Was it because T.J Housmanzadeh is 33? Was it because Boldin is 30? Was it because our starter wipeouts were slow? Was it because Michael Oher isn't a fit for the blind side? And was it because Donte Stall worth wasn’t used much? The answer is not what I stated above but the real answer is the lack of chemistry.
The Ravens indeed lost a great deal of chemistry by trading Mark Clayton and losing Jared Gaither to Injuries. Cam Cameron play calling/Slow wipeouts on field gets most of the blame for the offense down fall but how can you expect anything to work if their isn't consistent chemistry. Joe Flacco/Cam Cameron was faced with an offense with no connection of consistent chemistry and this is why you had games where play calling didn’t turn out right, Joe Flacco not seeing Anquan Boldin wide open, offensive linemen looking lost, and etc.
The Ravens do need to draft a young/fast wideout but that is not their revolution for their offense but instead more chemistry is. If the Ravens can go 12-4 with an offense with lack of chemistry then imagine how it would be once chemistry is truly at the level it supposes to be. The Ravens offense also would benefit from a player that provide energy like Anquan Boldin with his speeches, a play maker like Desean Jackson, entertainer/ dancer like a Kelly Washington, and more leadership. The Ravens offense yet again will be face with some changes and hopefully the changes doesn't effect the chemistry like last year offense.
