Sports Illustrated's Andy Benoit assigned the Baltimore Ravens a "B-" grade for their draft.
Benoit writes of the team's addition of Louisville QB Lamar Jackson with the No. 32 pick, "This torch could be passed (from Joe Flacco to Jackson) earlier than expected given the abundance of Ravens coaches who are familiar with a Jackson-friendly type of offense." He found that selection intriguing while also singling out the addition of TE Hayden Hurst (whom they drafted seven picks before Jackson), noting that Hurst's all-around skill-set brings more to the offensive table than that of more block-centric tight ends Nick Boyle and Maxx Williams currently on roster. What prevents Baltimore from receiving a higher grade, in his estimation, is that the team did almost nothing to address the front seven. That might not hurt in the short term, but Benoit points to the fact that five members of that front seven are in the final years of their contracts this upcoming season. He concludes that "if their offensive overhaul goes well, that’s a small price to pay." Apr 29 - 12:20 PM
