First Round Mock Draft: Free-Agency Changes
Since Baltimore now has one of the best safety duos in the NFL, this means they can focus elsewhere in the first round of this year’s draft.
Signing Tony Jefferson to play alongside Eric Weddle is genius.
It won’t single handedly turn this defense into what it once was, but it goes a long way to helping establish its own identity.
Helping the team get on track offensively needs to be the focus here, and David Njoku is the best guy to do it.
The tight end position may not be sexy, but scoring is.
Njoku gives Baltimore a good target throughout the field and a dangerous weapon in the redzone.
He doesn’t block like an O.J. Howard, but his work ethic alone should help him grow in that aspect of his game as his career builds.
Short term, he’s going to help soften the blow of losing Steve Smith.
If Breshad Perriman can become what we thought he would, then the Ravens have the makings of a very nice offensive attack.
