For several offseasons, the wide receiver room has been painted in a new shade of patchwork free agent signings and mid-round draft picks, never truly sticking. This rotating roster was a lingering proof point in defense of Joe Flacco’s struggles and will continue to drag down productivity for Lamar Jackson if it is not properly addressed this year.Particularly for a sophomore quarterback looking to improve his 58.2 completion percentage, another season without a reliable number one option will stall his development and halt the franchise’s progress. In his first year as GM, Eric DeCosta has already shown an eagerness to make meaningful transactions by trading Flacco, extending Tavon Young and cutting Crabtree. While his overall philosophy will continue to solidify over the next couple of months, the simple strategy should be clear: Surround Lamar Jackson with the type of security and reliability a young, unique talent requires to blossom. While the “next man up” reality of the NFL cannot be avoided — but rather budgeted for — Baltimore must stop the constant changing of the guard on offense. Too many coordinators and play callers were installed during Flacco’s tenure, and the failure to find the right weapons at the right time plagued the franchise’s playoff hopes for years. The Ravens cannot simply invest cap space and draft picks in receivers this offseason — they have done so for the last several years. The time is now to bring in a cast of both talented veteran leadership and immediate impact rookies White Maxx Williams Jersey , rather than applying another ineffective band-aid like Mike Wallace, Jeremy Maclin or Crabtree. The Ravens have not found a true go-to receiver since Anquan Boldin, Torrey Smith and Steve Smith. Continuity is unavoidably lost for the 2019 season, but in the interim, Baltimore can build some consistency from their strong tight end production. The 86th overall pick in 2018, Mark Andrews averaged 16.2 yards per reception and caught 68 percent of his targets. This offseason will set the tone for not only the upcoming schedule but years to come, as it is a chance for DeCosta to get it right and bring in personnel that can develop a rapport with Jackson and establish a cadence of success for the future.

Not many have been posted since the Baltimore Ravens added WR Seth Roberts, but as I published only a few days ago, that shouldn’t change Eric DeCosta’s draft strategy.Starting with the most recent mock, CBS Sports’ Ryan Wilson updated his mock draft on April 7. Surprisingly, Wilson sees the Ravens as the first team to pick a wide receiver in the 2019 NFL Draft.I believe most Ravens fans are okay with this; I certainly am. Most would be interested in Metcalf or Cody Ford as I’ve noticed in a few mocks Maxx Williams Jersey 2019 , but Ford is picked up by the New York Giants at 17, leaving Baltimore with their pick of the wide receiver litter at 22.From Bleacher Report’s Joe Tansey comes a one-round mock where he also believes the Ravens are going wide receiver.Unfortunately, Tansey doesn’t include his reasoning. Not a problem though, I think we all can understand why.In Tansey’s draft, the Ravens have their pick of:Marquise Brown, WR, OklahomaGreg Little, OT, Ole MissJosh Jacobs, RB, AlabamaDalton Risner, OT White Earl Thomas Jersey , Kansas StateGarrett Bradbury, C, NC StateOf these names, I’d be completely okay with the Brown or Bradbury selection. A center to bolster the middle of the line is a great idea. He’s been a name on the radar for a bit as both CBS Sports’ Chris Trapasso & R.J. White picked Bradbury in their most recent mock drafts.I like the idea of going wide receiver or offensive line. Building protection around your franchise quarterback is a great idea. Giving him receivers is great as well. With the defense still looking sharp, going offense here is a great idea.Up next, WalterFootball updated their mock on April 3, where, you guessed it, the Ravens go pass-catcher in Round 1.I’ve been a big fan of Campbell’s play and I’d be happy with this pick. Some think this is far too high for the wideout as he was only an honorable mention on both Stampede Blue’s WR prospects article and CBS Sports Top Prospects piece. But Walter Football ranks Campbell second on their wide receiver rankings and as such, he’s the Ravens’ pick at 22.
