16. Baltimore Ravens: Western Michigan WR Corey Davis
It’s crazy to think how close the Baltimore Ravens were to making the playoffs last year despite their roller coaster of a season with inconsistencies, but at least the team should be contenders once again in the AFC North heading into 2017. For years, the Ravens have been praised for having one of the league’s top defenses, and while that was the case once again last season, the only chance this team is going to have at knocking off the Pittsburgh Steelers is improving the offense.
Baltimore has already invested a ton of money in Joe Flacco, but paying a quarterback a large sum can only do so much if he doesn’t have the proper weapons to work with on offense. With the Ravens losing an incredible playmaker at receiver in Steve Smith, don’t be surprised if their first-round pick ends up being used on a talented wideout that could make an impact from the start, like Corey Davis out of Western Michigan.
Any team concerned over Davis being successful in the NFL due to the fact he spent his college carer playing in the MAC will most likely be filled with regret later on, as the numbers are simply too good to ignore. To see someone like Davis catch 264 passes for 4,337 yards to go along with 46 touchdowns during his final three seasons with the Broncos shows how special this wideout truly is, and would certainly benefit from playing alongside someone like Flacco.
