New, comments

Strictly WR and OL

Ozzie Newsome and the Baltimore Ravens shocked Ravens Nation with their first four picks in the 2017 NFL draft. All on defense, all athletic specimens, all with All-Pro upside. Marlon Humphrey, Tyus Bowser, Chris Wormley and Tim Williams give the Ravens a dangerous defense with the ability to dominate the NFL.

When combined with their veteran leaders, offseason acquisitions and young players already in place on the roster, these four rookies give Baltimore the makings of a truly complete championship defense.

On Day 3, the Ravens must turn their attention to the offensive side of the ball. Wide receiver and offensive line should be the positions targeted...

Wide receivers:

Malachi Dupre, Louisiana State

Long, smooth wideout makes spectacular catches and brings elite upside.

Josh Reynolds, Texas A&M

Lanky vertical threat is a bonafide playmaker.

Noah Brown, Ohio State

Big possession receiver blocks and is fearless across the middle.

Mack Hollins, North Carolina

Huge target is a special teams ace.

Josh Malone, Tennessee

Prototypical measurables with plus hands, but is a raw route runner.

K.D. Cannon, Baylor

Productive, lightning-fast field stretcher.

Offensive lineman:

Dorian Johnson, OG, Pittsburgh

Bluechip recruit has the agility to dominate in space.

Roderick Johnson, OT, Florida State

Powerful run blocker with a massive wingspan and room to grow.

Nico Siragusa, OG, San Diego State

Strong drive blocker was a third team All-American.

Collin Buchanan, OG, Miami of Ohio

Athletic wide body with the quickness to excel at guard.

Tyler Orlosky, C, West Virginia

High character prospect with heavy hands and a nasty on-field demeanor.

Jon Toth, C, Kentucky

Intelligence, toughness and experience outweigh his athletic limitations.
