Ravens visit with Paxton Lynch

New, comments

Baltimore's latest player visit is a little puzzling to say the least.

Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

A lot of the talk surrounding the Ravens' draft has been centered around defensive playmakers and offensive linemen, but certainly not quarterbacks.

Apparently the Ravens have visited with Paxton Lynch, the Memphis quarterback who is mostly viewed as a close second to the combo of Carson Wentz and Jared Goff, who are expected be the first two players selected this year. Lynch will likely be selected somewhere in the first round by most estimates, but it almost certainly won't be the Ravens taking him. Baltimore is set for a considerable amount of time with Joe Flacco at the helm, as well as an ample backup quarterback in Ryan Mallett. It remains to be seen why the Ravens would meet with a player they are clearly not drafting, but it just looks as if the team is doing their due diligence by talking with Lynch.
