Boldin was a steal of a trade.

I think you have to add Torrey Smith to that list, now. While we know he can be much more productive than he already has been, and that he needs to find some consistency, it can't be denied that he has been very productive, over his first three years in the league.

With better gameplanning, designed to free him up more, and a better pocket for Joe to throw from, I think Torrey could easily put up 1500+ yards a season on a regular basis.

I disagree that it is easy to draft a WR, and when you look at the success to failure ratio of receivers in the draft (for all teams, not jus the Ravens), I'd guess that it bears this out.

And honestly, with the Ravens, I feel like there must be some shortcomings somewhere in the coaching of WRs, for so many to have come in and disappointed so badly.

Good point on coaching. That said, the fact that Torrey smith and marlon brown have easily the two best rookie wr seasons in franchise history.
