Baltimoreravens.com’s Garrett Downing had the opportunity to interview NFL Network analyst and former Ravens Scout Daniel Jeremiah at the scouting combine in Indianapolis.
Among other things, Downing asked Jeremiah what he thinks the top priority for the Ravens in the draft is.
“I think you look at scoring points, being a little bit more explosive and adding that element to your game,” said Jeremiah. “Whether that’s at the wide receiver position, the running back position ... as many tight ends as they have, I think you look for another guy in that room as well.”
“They need dynamic players on offense,” he added. “That’s where I would focus.”
Garrett asked Jeremiah who he thought a dynamic player was, besides Calvin Ridley in the first round.
“Well you don’t have to go far. D.J. Moore from Maryland, I think is a great player,” Jeremiah said. “What he does after the catch, he gives you some toughness and explosiveness there ... He plays bigger than his size. There’s some similarities there with Steve Smith.”
He added, “D.J. Chark from LSU ... He’s intriguing to me. Somebody that’s just in and out of breaks so explosive. He can return kicks so it gives you some added value there as well. He’d be another one I’d keep an eye on.”
