March Profile: Ravens WR Marlon Brown

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

In the middle of March through the end of the month, we will take a quick look at some of the key players for the Baltimore Ravens entering the 2016 season from where each key player stands in terms of the Ravens depth chart.

Marlon Brown

Brown hasn't caught a touchdown pass for the Ravens since the 2013 season and with the competition heating up, he is on the outside looking in most likely. For the 2015 season, Brown had 14 receptions for 112 yards and dropped some key passes in the middle of a couple of games during the season. Brown was dealing with a back injury, but he is going to need to turn his production around if wants a shot at a roster spot for the 2016 season.

There's a lot of competition and the Ravens will be looking to add even more wide receivers as  the offseason goes along. At this point in time, it isn't a secret that Brown has to step up.

If the 2016 season started today, you would be hard pressed to find a lot of people who have Brown staying on the 53 man roster with the log jam at wide receiver consisting of Steve Smith Sr., Breshad Perriman, Kamar Aiken, Mike Wallace, Jeremy Butler and Michael Campanaro.

Brown has talent. You don't have seven touchdown receptions as an undrafted rookie wide receiver the way he did in 2013 without talent. The Ravens had a below average offensive line in terms of run blocking and pass protection in 2013 which obviously makes things harder on the quarterback which will also hurt wide receivers in the process.

If Brown ends up on the Ravens main roster during the 2016 season, he will have earned it.
