2. Baltimore Ravens

A few months back, the Baltimore Ravens signed veteran receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who has had a long-standing friendship with quarterback Lamar Jackson. The pairing made sense, as Jackson hasn't had a legitimate no. 1 wide receiver since enterting the league.

But, Beckham has failed to stay healthy and has only given us a few flashes of the player he once was.

Rookie Zay Flowers has been brilliant at times, but he is more of a no. 2 option and a versatile offensive weapon than a true, outside threat. Of course, tight end Mark Andrews is one of the best in the game at his position, and the Ravens will dearly miss him now that he's gone for the season.

Next year, though, if the Ravens could bring Evans to Baltimore and pair him up with Flowers, along with Andrews and Jackson, the team's passing attack could finally be what fans have long desired it to be. Jackson needs an alpha wide receiver he can trust in any given situation, and to this day, he has yet to be granted one. Evans could be exactly that.

Should the Ravens get an established run game behind someone like Keaton Mitchell and possibly retaining Gus Edwards, they could finally have a thorough identity.
