Baltimore Ravens Select Oklahoma WR Marquise Brown #25 Overall

Baltimore Ravens Select Oklahoma WR Marquise Brown #25 Overall 1

At number 25, the first wide receiver comes off the board in the 2019 NFL Draft, with Marquise Brown going to Baltimore.

While this fall may have been partially due to a foot injury and uncertainties with his health, “Hollywood” Brown is a very high ceiling option for Baltimore. The Ravens need to do everything they can to build around Lamar Jackson at QB, and giving him a burner like Brown on the outside is a high ceiling pick. At 5’9″, 170ish lbs, and with 4.32 speed, Brown certainly has the potential to be a dynamic duo for big plays with Jackson.

If his production with Kyler Murray was any indication, this pick certainly could end up being electric. Hell, being the top option for a Heisman winner who burst onto the scene with minimal previous snaps says something about a receiver. And, if giving Jackson a better option downfield can cut down on the amount of designed QB runs, that’s a bonus.

Baltimore already has a strong defense, that was evident last season. If they can develop a powerhouse offense led by Jackson and Marquise Brown? This team could be a force in the AFC North with an aging/depleted Steelers, an unproven Browns squad, and a very meh to bad Bengals team.
