Baltimore Ravens

Stacked Against the Pick:

With the loss of leading receiver Anquan Boldin to the 49ers the ravens receivers are going to have to pick up the slack and cover the 951 yards that Boldin was able to bring to the table. The front office is going to have to take get a receiver at some point but since all but one (Jacoby Jones) of the Ravens receivers have only been in the league for 2 years look for them to target a veteran.

The Perfect Storm:

Wilson has had a few off the field issues when he left the team in the middle of the 2012 season, but with the veteran and experienced coaching staff in Baltimore as well as quite a few players that have been around for a while it could be a good thing for both parties if they were to pick him up and get him some guidance in the right direction.

Wilson was able to produce when he was given the chance. In 2011 Wilson caught  82 passes for 1388 yards and contributed 12 touchdowns for the Cougars. Those kind of numbers could help out the Ravens when it comes to picking up the numbers that Boldin was able to produce

Likelihood of Getting Drafted by Ravens:

C+ The Ravens have a young receiving group and are I feel like it’s going to be hard for them to take an athlete that struggled to finish the season under a new head coach and system.
