Who said this class is deep at WR?

There are two studs. And I think it's slightly more probably than not that neither will even make it to our pick.


And that's stretching the definition of stud. This is the worst wide receiver class in a few years. Luckily the Ravens don't need a gamebreaker type. More like a chain-mover that can grind out yards. So if the team decides to go that route in the draft I think there's a better chance of finding someone solid in that mold.

IMO, it's not stretching the definition of stud at all.

I don't think Davis/Wiliams are Megatron/AJ Green/Julio level prospects, but definitely comparable in value to guys like Amari Cooper and Sammy Watkins (as prospects).

There may actually be 3 studs with John Ross too. I don't know if his 40 was legitimately faster than Chris Johnson's, but he's clearly really really fast, and is much more than a burner. After watching him more closely today, he's definitely in play in the top half of the first. And the buzz from the 40, will probably ensure that.

The top end of this WR class is very good. It's the depth that I think isn't as great.

Yeah, I don't have Williams and Davis on a Cooper/Watkins level either. That's still really high praise. Don't get me wrong, at 16 either would be a fine value but that's about where I have their ceiling.

Ross is interesting. The most significant negative for him is his medical history. For a guy with his build and given his game is based around his speed (even if he can do more than just verticals) that's a fairly risky gamble.
