      UPDATED: MESSAGE BOARDS CLOSING AFTER DRAFT   03/08/2017

      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

  1. Just saying this but I haven't seen this point brought up too often. Mike Wallace's option was picked up, but if I understand his contract correctly he will be a UFA next offseason. This is another reason i see WR as a round 1, or round 2, addition to get a top guy who can develop to replace Wallace. If we don't get a top receiver this year we might be looking for two in next year's draft which I don't think the FO wants to do.
  2. I am warming up to the idea of john ross for us at 16. if he is healthy he is the fastest player in the nfl. breshad already has size so he could be that possession guy as well as go deep. Ross is a great route runner, and with him, wallace, and perriman on the field someone will get open quick. Plus imagine we get a guy like Boldin in free agency after the draft whose sole purpose is to grab the short to intermediate routes, along with the tight ends, defenses won't know who to cover! Three of the fastest guys in the nfl would be crazy. Draft some o-line men later in the draft and maybe an explosive running back and we could have a lethal offense. If the running game works next season and the other things happen too, the play action would be insane.
  3. Who remembers the days when Billy Bajema was our depth at tight end? Now we have like 5 quality guys. I kind of miss Bajema though.

      I'm sure it was due to non-football reasons but I was always vexed as to how we kept Dickson over Bajema.  I don't recall seeing Bajema drop as many passes as Dickson did on plays he was expected to do more than block.

      i think the plan was to never, ever let that happen again, at all costs, as you can see from our attention to the position in the past 3-4 years

      Dickson was a weird one bc he was pretty good at first, it was Pitta that was backing him up at first...

  4. I agree 100% however, I do believe getting a pass rusher/elite lineman type/top WR should be the priority with round number 1. I still think we will definitely sign a CB after round 1 and even between rounds 2-3, though.
  5. What is everyone's opinion on Marlon Humphrey as our pick? Is he overrated because he plays for 'Bama or is he a potential lockdown corner?

    1. BmoreBird22

      I really like his zone coverage ability and that fits what Dean Pees wants. He's got the height/weight/speed to excel in the Ravens Tampa 2 and Cover 3 schemes.

      what bird said. hes not overrated because of his team, he may be overrated because he really needs to learn how to use that speed and fluidity to pursue his man downfield better, and he needs to learn how to turn his head to play the ball. but when hes allowed to play downhill hes about as good as anyone in the class. if he doesnt succeed as a corner i think he has a bright future as a safety

  6. There were rumors about this, and if true, would anyone want the Ravens to try to trade for Brandin Cooks? If so, what do you think it would take to bring him on from NO? Also on this note, what are some teams and players you could see being traded specifically at the WR position? We've gone that route before with Boldin so its not out of the question.
  7. Anybody know how much cap space we have going into this year? Also, who do you think is a virtual lock to get cut and how much would we save?

  8. I love Joe Flacco, but the dude is done. Please don't call me a fair-weather fan and look, I get that there are problems around him but maybe a change of scenery is needed. PLEASE PLEASE make some changes biscotti or we will tread mediocre waters for years and years. What separates bad teams from great is that they know the definition of insanity: "insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results". Great organizations make changes when needed and we are the definition of insanity week to week this year.
  9. Lol I was thinking about this as well. I used to love these even before I was a member of the forums board. I agree with someone above who posted that they should just do them every two weeks or even just one big session one time during the summer. I would definitely enjoy having them back.
  10. Mike Mularkey!! Just kidding of course, but Mularkey is a fun name to say.
  11. Chris Moore will be a star in this league. You heard it here first. If you are not convinced, watch this:

      Bet he's excited to have a good QB.

      THAT was suppose to show me that he is going to be a star....

    4. juanman7

      juanman7

      @DefensiveMindyes because one, he didnt have an accurate QB and two his leaping ability to go up for the ball and that one TD where he was well covered but came down with it and the fact that he produced while going against the bengals first round pick. So not necessarily the game itself but the skills he showed through this game.

  12. Can someone please tell me what would happen with Monroe if we drafted Tunsil? I get that Tunsil is a dynamite OT prospect but at the same time if we take him we would probably start him at LT and so where would monroe go? Would Tunsil potentially start at OG like many rookie tackles do? And also isn't he injury prone? We would still need a replacement for Osemele at LG. I would much rather take a defensive player at 6 than Tunsil, and take an OG in the mid rounds where they can easily become quality starters. Any answer to these questions would be great?
  13. Well if last season taught us anything, it's that a quick turnaround is no longer off the table in the National Football League if you have the pieces in place and quality front office like the Panthers. I mean did everyone forget that they just lucked out the season before going 7-8-1 and still winning their division, and the year after that they went 17-2 and to the Super Bowl? If the right moves are made and the coach is in place to do so, then a large turnaround is possible, and I think Harbaugh and Newsome at least give us the possibility to do that (not saying they will, just saying the possibility exists. If everything goes well, Flacco will have Ben Watson, Mike Wallace, and Breshad Perriman as new targets (and maybe a new WR from the draft). That is 3 definite new targets, 2 of whom have shown they can get open and be relied upon in other offenses. The running game scares me a little more than most mostly because we don't know how Forrest will be when he comes back as RB is a tough position to bounce back after an injury. I love Buck Allen as much as the next guy but to me he is best as a receiving threat out of the backfield, so to me getting a guy like Elliott in the first would serve as a huge upgrade to our offense, and with a talent like that Trestman will have to give him carries or he would be chased out of town. Our offensive line isn't as big of a question mark as people make it out to be. Euegen Monroe is a starter and quality one at that. I know he's been hurt in the past but I believe with all the doubt of the offseason and people questioning him he will be extra motivated this season, at least I hope. Yanda is one of the best guards if not the best, and Zuttah is a quality Center. LG is our only real question but we have young guys who have been put on the spot in the last few years and so their development has been accelerated which sucked for them at the time but will help them tremendously this offseason. And Rick Wagner is a young but up and coming right tackle who had a down year last year but he was coming off injury and I expect him to play at the rookie level he played in after a full offseason. I think Ronnie Stanley would be a bad pick at number 6, maybe if we traded down but he just doesn't look like a surefire prospect at OT and we need a surefire guy with such a high pick that we don't normally have. Now on to the defense I have a lot of hope. If you look at our front 7, it is still a dominant force. With the likes of Jernigan, Brandon Williams, CJ Mosely, Dumervil coming back, and Terrell Suggs hopefully playing at pre-inury level we should be set. Not to mention we have guys who showed promise like Carl Davis, Za'Darius Smith, Urban and of course KLM who will hopefully stay healthy for a full season finally. Then not to mention the most underrated move of the offseason is the hiring of Leslie Frazier. Did no one see how much a difference a coach coming in can make? Remember how Kubiak came in with mostly the same offense (minus stEVE Smith) and quickly made it the best in franchise history? I believe Frazier, not to that extent of course, but he can make some things happen as the secondary coach. Especially with my favorite offseason addition ERIC WEDDLE coming in and motivated and hungry he will make a huge impact along with a rejuvenated Jimmy Smith, Shareece Wright, and a position switch for Lardarius Webb. I see a bright future guys!!
  14. Sorry to break the news to you.....Desmond King just announced he's returning to Iowa next season.
  15. Anyone know where I can buy a Breshad Perriman or Maxx Williams jersey online?

      I can only find a woman's one for Perriman and I can't find a Williams one at all.

    2. sflegend89

      sflegend89

      Yeah they only have women's for Perriman on NFL Shop, very strange. You could pay extra and do it custom or just wait closer to the regular season and they will probably have it available
