Best AFC Draft: Mel Kiper Says Baltimore

Mel Kiper Jr. votes Baltimore with the #1 draft for AFC

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The reason we seem to put up 10 win seasons repeatedly while giving away talent every year? Drafting. And with the 2015 draft over Mel Kiper believes that Baltimore possibly took home the best AFC draft. I'm definitely not one to argue when hearing we did the best at something, especially when that involves questioning Ozzie Newsome and GM in  waiting Eric DeCosta.

Best Overall Draft in the AFC: •Tedy Bruschi - @nyjets •Herm Edwards - @RAIDERS •Mel Kiper - @Ravens •Todd McShay - @Jaguars

I love the look of our draft, and something else worth excitement is hearing Mel Kiper Jr proclaim that Baltimore Ravens rookie tight end Maxx Williams will be the Offensive Rookie of the Year!

Rookie Predictions: Tedy - 3 rushers w/ 10+ sacks Herm - Jameis throws 30 TD's Mel - Maxx Williams Off ROY Todd - Nelson Agholor Off ROY

I could only imagine watching a dominant offensive power we can achieve with (and this is best case scenario) Breshad Perriman developing well, Steve Smith Sr. continuing to show Father Time who is boss, and we score the OROY as tight end Maxx Williams puts forth a dominant season. Previous winners of the award include, Odell Beckham Jr., Eddie Lacy, and Robert Griffin III. To snag the award though would be meaning outplaying big name rookies, Todd Gurley, Melvin Gordon, Amari Cooper, and even teammate Breshad Perriman, Oh yeah, and those two quarterbacks Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota.

Maxx has the Quarterback to give him some great passes, and with Marc Trestman operating a good passing scheme Williams has a shot. In the words of Bart Scott, "CAN'T WAIT!"
