Bengals: Ranking every wide receiver group in the AFC North
By Alex Austin
AFC North wide receiver rankings: #4 Baltimore Ravens
The Ravens are a team that is built on running the football. Lamar Jackson combined with Mark Ingram produced the best rushing attack by a wide margin in 2019. Adding J.K. Dobbins in the second round of the NFL draft will only add to the ability for Baltimore to run the football over, through, and around their opponents.
The biggest question this year is if Baltimore will be able to keep up their rushing onslaught now that teams have had an entire season worth of film to analyze. Regardless of what opposing teams decide to do, this team is designed to run the ball.
That puts a hindrance on bringing in top talent receivers. The Ravens used a third-round selection in the draft on Devin Duvernay but that is unlikely to move the needle much on their passing attack. The Ravens have chosen to put emphasis on their defense rather than providing more passing options.
Putting one of the top offensive teams in the NFL at the bottom of the list demonstrates how good the Ravens are at what they do. Until the NFL finds a recipe to stop Jackson and Co. running down the field, there won’t be much of a need to improve the passing game.
