Ravens invite young fan to become first ever to announce draft pick in Braille

As we all know, the NFL draft begins on Thursday, April 25 and will continue through Saturday. On Saturday, something very special is going to happen for a young Baltimore Ravens’ fan. The Ravens are going to have their friend Mo announce their fourth-round draft pick in Braille. This is pretty darn cool. Mo’s reaction is priceless when he receives a call while at school to talk to none other than Ravens head coach John Harbaugh. Even more special was how excited Mo was when Harbaugh...

Clelin Ferrell would be an ideal pick for the Ravens

With a large majority of the Ravens’ fan base clamoring for a wide receiver to be General Manager Eric DeCosta’s first draft pick on Thursday night, a certain player has failed to receive his deserved attention. Clemson’s Clelin Ferrell is a prospect that isn’t talked about enough as an ideal fit for Baltimore.

With the losses of Terrell Suggs and Za’Darius Smith this offseason, the Ravens are left with uncertainty at outside linebacker. Matt Judon has proven to be a solid starter...

Justin Tucker keeping ball from key missed extra point for motivation

Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker had never missed an extra point in his career until last October, when he shockingly missed a game-tying attempt with 24 seconds left against the New Orleans Saints. One might expect a kicker to want to put such a big miss behind him as quickly as possible. For Tucker, however, he wants to use it as motivation, all the way down to keeping the football used. It’s a good attitude to have and likely helps explain why Tucker has cemented himself as one of...

The Ravens need to build around Lamar Jackson... Thursday

Time to start playing bully ball

Lamar Jackson turned 22 years old a day after the Ravens suffered through a disappointing loss in the Wild Card round against the Los Angeles Chargers. As a 21 year old, Lamar Jackson accomplished a great deal. 42 Louisville school records. a Heisman and a runner up. Jackson was a first round draft pick, the second youngest quarterback selected, and significantly outplayed most pundit’s expectations.

L.J. posted the second highest QB rating, lowest...

Ezekiel Ansah visiting Ravens

Ezekiel Ansah could be getting closer to finding his new NFL home for the 2019 season. The Ravens will meet with the free agent defensive end on Wednesday, according to Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com (on Twitter). Ansah, the No. 5 overall pick of the 2013 draft, enjoyed some serious highs and lows with the Lions. Over the course of six seasons, Ansah compiled 48 sacks. However, that stat doesn’t tell the whole story. Ansah appeared in just seven games for the Lions last year before his...

Could Baltimore have another big splash up their sleeve?

The Ravens figure to address their pass-rushing needs in the NFL draft tomorrow but could also look to do so via the free agent market, where several viable options remain. One of these options is former Lions defensive end Ezekiel Ansah, who the team brought in for a visit today.

Free-agent pass rusher Ezekiel Ansah is visiting the Ravens today. Nothing imminent but Ravens have a need for edge rusher after losing Terrell Suggs and...

Final first round 2019 NFL mock draft

Vontae Mack no matter what

We’re nearly there. Thursday night, Roger Goodell will be greeted by a cacophony of boos to kick off the NFL Draft proceedings down in Nashville, Tennessee.

This has been one of the more memorable draft cycles in recent years for a few reasons. The main reason, of course, is that a guy who was all but on board a minor league baseball bus a few short months ago is the favorite to go number one overall, but it doesn’t stop there. We’ve had risers and fallers...

Even When Sleeping, Eric DeCosta’s Mind Doesn’t Rest - Clifton Brown

“The only thing that has changed is, I haven’t been able to dedicate all my time to the draft. I’ve spent a lot of time looking at other things, talking to people about other things. I’ve had to be more of a macro manager than a micromanager of the draft. Fortunately we’ve got people like (Director of College Scouting) Joe Hortiz and (Director of Pro Personnel) George Kokinis and our scouts. Whatever I...

Ravens NFL draft big board: Interior OL

Which guards and centers should be at the top of the Ravens radar?

When it comes to the offensive line, the Ravens are in an interesting spot. Their line was relatively dominant over the second half of last season, however, they were inconsistent early in the season and exposed in the playoff loss to the Chargers.

With Ronnie Stanley, Orlando Brown Jr, and Marshal Yanda in the fold, the Ravens have 3/5 penciled in at both tackle spots and right guard. The question becomes, what direction...

Fanpulse: Baltimore Ravens fans agree, the team needs offense in the 2019 NFL Draft

Please, target somebody to help the offense

SB Nation recently polled Baltimore Ravens fans on which position the Ravens need most. The answer, unsurprisingly, is on the offensive side of the ball.

Nearly 50-percent of all Baltimore Beatdown voters believe wide receiver is the top need for the franchise in 2019.

This comes as no surprise. Willie Snead IV was the third receiver on the depth chart a year ago and is now the top-rated pass catcher for the team a season later. It’s also a...

Ravens pick up Ronnie Stanley’s 2020 option

One step closer to securing the bag

The Ravens pride themselves on great play within the trenches, and this shows with the investments they annually make along the defensive and offensive lines. One of the bigger ventures they’ve made in that respect was picking Notre Dame left tackle Ronnie Stanley at 6th overall back in 2016.

It’s worked out fairly well for them so far, and they acknowledged as much on Tuesday morning with a move that was largely to be expected:

Ravens NFL draft big board: Wide Receiver

Which WR prospects should be at the top of the Ravens radar?

Stop me if you’ve heard this before: the Ravens need to address the wide receiver position in this year’s NFL draft. In what has become an annual discussion, Baltimore needs to hit on receivers in the draft more so than ever.

The Ravens struggles at finding and developing talent at the position have been well-documented but with Lamar Jackson entrenched as the starter, they can no longer afford to make poor investments at...
