Last season was one for the books as far as front office moves go.
- Baltimore traded up in the draft, picking Maxx Williams in the second round.
- Drafted back to back offensive players in the first and second round.
- Traded Nick Easton, a rookie free agent during the pre-season to the 49ers.
- Traded a draft pick to acquire corner back Will Davis from the Dolphins
The last one being the most important, at least for this story.
Against the Cleveland Browns, Will Davis got injured and was not expected to return. Later on, after losing to Cleveland 33-30 in overtime, the Ravens were struck with more injury hearing Davis torn his ACL for the second time in 11 months.
Good news showing though, as Will Davis tweeted last week:
Rehab is going far better than I ever would've asked for.— Will Davis (@WillieD_effect) February 7, 2016
It's going to be interesting to see where Davis will land on the depth chart. Behind Jimmy Smith? Behind Lardarius Webb, if Webby isn't cut? Could Tray Walker make a run for it? And Ozzie has mentioned bolstering the secondary with free agents and through the draft. A big crapshoot at this point, but Will Davis already made his comment to Garrett Downing, Baltimore Ravens Staff Writer, "I want to be a starter on the team. That's my mindset coming into it. And it's definitely going to be fun competition coming back."
We all are rooting for you here at the Baltimore Beatdown, Mr. Davis. I know many of us were excited about the trade when it was announced. And we are excited to see what you can do this season.
