Tavon Young can elevate the Ravens defense

Baltimore Ravens cornerback Tavon Young suffered a torn ACL in offseason team activities last June. While the team’s injury issues have probably been overblown, Young’s loss was underrated. Having their premier slot man available last season could have honestly propelled the Ravens into the playoffs.

As a rookie in 2016, after being drafted in the fourth round out of Temple, Tavon started 11 games. His stat line included 44 solo tackles, eight pass breakups and a pair of interceptions....

Ravens’ C.J. Mosley needs a coverage linebacker beside him

After a ‘down year’ for the All-Pro linebacker, which featured three forced fumbles, two interceptions, a touchdown and 96 tackles, some fans were still unsatisfied with the coverage ability of C.J. Mosley. While I’ve argued for Mosley’s case—formidably—, I do believe a pairing with a coverage-inclined linebacker helps ease the pressure off Mosley’s shoulders.

During Daryl Smith’s stint with Baltimore, Mosley was a fiend. He was allowed to rush the passer, producing seven...

Five NFL Draft sleepers: Pre-combine edition

Every year several players entering the NFL draft slip through the cracks and ‘fly under-the-radar’. The NFL combine, in theory, allows those players to display their speed, agility, strength and overall athleticism. Below are five prospects who are ‘flying under the radar’ before the NFL combine.

WR Tre’Quan Smith, UCF

Smith turned heads during the Senior Bowl and he will continue to improve his draft stock at the NFL combine. Smith stands at 6-foot-1 and 202 pounds. He has great...

Tony Jefferson and Jimmy’s Seafood are preparing a sales pitch for Jarvis Landry

Another day, another tweet from Tony Jefferson regarding Jarvis Landry. This time, however, a familiar face decided to join in on the fun.

If the Miami Dolphins choose not to franchise tag their star wide receiver, then all indications point to him hitting the open market. Players like Eric Weddle and Tony Jefferson are making sure he ends up in a Ravens jersey if that happens.

Weddle, Jefferson, and countless Ravens fans have been recruiting Landry on Twitter for a while, but they have a...

Joe Flacco’s checkdowns and a flawed passing offense

Joe Flacco’s checkdown passes aren’t benefitting him or the Baltimore Ravens’ offense. Checkdowns have become a regular part of watching Baltimore Ravens football. The attempt to run the West Coast offense has been a frustrating spectacle to watch since the departure of Gary Kubiak in 2014. From Marc Trestman to  Marty Mornhinweg, the passing offense has […] Joe Flacco’s checkdowns and a flawed passing offense - Ebony Bird - Ebony Bird - A Baltimore Ravens Fan Site - News, Blogs,...

Baltimore Ravens have an unproven crowd at outside linebacker

When it comes to the outside linebacker positions, the Ravens have a bit of a traffic jam: What we know about the Baltimore Ravens outside linebackers is that Terrell Suggs and Matt Judon are the leaders in the pack. Once you get beyond that we’re just talking about potential.

Baltimore Ravens should target Riley Ferguson in NFL Draft

The Baltimore Ravens may not be thinking quarterback in the first round, but at some point, they have to get on that.

Say Yes

These players are by no means guaranteed to get tagged, but I’m leaning yes that they will.

3) Allen Robinson, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars: The torn ACL that Robinson suffered in Week 1 complicates any attempt at a long-term deal. His down year in 2016 doesn’t help, either. Still, it would be strange for the free-spending Jaguars to allow one of their best offensive draft picks of the...

NFL Draft Profile: RB Bo Scarbrough

Alabama running back Bo Scarbrough may be one of the more intriguing running backs in this class. Many will compare him to former Alabama running back Derrick Henry due to their similar running styles. Scarbrough is a big-bodied, physical running back who stands at 6-foot-1 and 232 pounds.

He is a punishing runner, who will be a perfect short-yardage and goal line running back. His production in college is rather interesting. During the 2016 season, he posted 812 yards and 11 touchdowns....

Ownership has made it clear drafting a quarterback in the first round isn’t on the table, but 2018 is likely Joe Flacco’s last season with this team given the structure of his contract.

Ravens OLB Tyus Bowser could be in store for a breakout year in 2018

Many Ravens fans were very excited when the Ravens took outside linebacker Tyus Bowser in the second-round of the 2017 NFL draft. Bowser displayed freakish athleticism in college.

The linebacker position was overcrowded for the Ravens in 2017, leaving Bowser and fellow rookie Tim Williams buried on the depth chart behind Terrell Suggs, Matthew Judon and Za’Darius Smith.

Bowser flashed his playmaking ability early on in the season, in Week 2, against the Cleveland Browns, with a sack and...
