The first round of the 2019 NFL Draft has come and passed, and the Ravens have found a weapon for Lamar Jackson.
Here is the latest Baltimore Ravens news.
1. Ravens selected Oklahoma WR Marquise "Hollywood" Brown with the No. 25 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Lamar Jackson's gets a deep threat for his second season in Baltimore. Brown (5’9/166) spent two years with the Sooners after transferring from JUCO, amassing a career 132/2,413/17 (18.3 YPR) receiving line as Baker Mayfield, then Kyler Murray’s go-to guy. Antonio Brown’s cousin, Marquise’s game is built on speed and explosion, leading all of Division I in catches of 50-plus yards (14) over the past two seasons.
In 2018, 35% of Brown’s receptions gained at least 20 yards. Ex-NFL scout Daniel Jeremiah called Brown’s tape the best in this year’s class and compared him to DeSean Jackson. Brown required Lisfranc foot surgery in February and didn’t run before the draft but is fully expected to be ready for training camp. Brown was a great real-life pick by the Ravens. It's his worst-case-scenario landing spot in fantasy football.
2. Ravens announce that superfan Miles Taylor, who despite having cerebral palsy, has gone viral for his inspirational deadlifting videos, will announce the team's third round selection Friday.
