Love this pick.  Even better that we traded back in to grab him.  In most other drafts this guy would have gone in rounds 4-6.  While he isn't the flashy receiver everyone craves, he could very well be the next Wes Welker, Danny Amendola, or Eddie Royal.

 

He is one of the best receivers in this draft at getting open in the zone and has fantastic hands.  The only knock on him is that he doesn't have "elite athleticism".  This meaning he isn't tall, fast, or big.

 

He is however, slippery and quick.  This guy will be a star and may very well fill the hole at slot receiver.  We have a good core group.  Torrey Smith, Touchdown Brown, Jacoby, Steve Smith.  

 

He will join our developmental group with Thompson and Mellette and I guarantee he will be a star.

Really happy to have him here for personal and football reasons.  I got to watch him slaughter my high school in the state championship twice.  He was a man amongst boys on that field.

I mentioned him on a thread a couple of months ago as an under-the-radar local guy. I had a feeling we were going to pick again in this draft after our "final" pick in round 6. I'm glad we did, and it was a pleasant surprise to see us draft Mike. The one position that Flacco has never really had is a reliable slot receiver. Now we add Steve Smith and Mike, who can definitely learn a lot from Stevie. I like it a lot.

Forget this guy. He still owes my buddy 4 bucks from Maryland football camp that was loaned to him for pizza. Never paid him back. Classless. (Disclaimer: True story, but obviously doesn't make him classless lol. Played against him in high school. He rushed for 240 yards on 8 carries. Stud.)

I love the pick because it gives Flacco a guy who can get open quick and that's very important in a WCO. I don't look at the draft for right now because I know it's more about the future then the right now. I think for the second straight year the Ravens found a quality WR late in the draft. Now nothing is set but to project into the near future, I feel pretty good about Torrey, Marlon, Mellette and Camp. That gives you a guy who can make plays at every level. More importantly I like this pick because the offense is different and we actually have a OC who uses his talent to create mismatches. In years past he probably would have just got lost in the mix because he's not a strong route runner and u had to be to win in our old system. However knowing Kubes will allow this guy to work in space, which is what he does best is exciting.

Man I can't wait until preseason.

He really does compare well to the Welker/Amendola/Edelman.. Steal in the 7th, could end up being a really good slot wr for us.

Love the pick. He should be a great slot receiver after Steve leaves.

I can't wait to see this guy in a ravens uniform. Vicious slot guy and I'm happy we drafted him.

 

When can I buy a jersey

So after he was picked I immediatly watched two of his games and I have to say I am really impressed. He gets open quickly and finds holes in zone defenses, also he is really hard to cover because he's so quick. And the WF QB almost always threw to him.
He dropped some easy throws which is a minus, but his upside is huge. I love me some small slot guy. Really excited for this pick

Also I think its cool that some guys on here played against him

We could have a really good young underrated WR group if he develops into a good slot WR and Marlon keeps developing as an outside WR. We'll have size, speed, and an underneath guy.

If we traded for him you know he's thought of very highly. On day 3 this was the pick that most excited me.

I went to wake forest with Camp and knew him. Good kid and hard worker. He was one of the best wide receivers in the ACC and that was on a Wake Forest team with Tanner Pryce throwing him the ball. He may be on the smaller side but he has the quickness and smarts to get open. This is the kind of guy Flacco needs to be that third down guy to just sit at the sticks. Him, Pitta, and Daniels and even Smith should give Flacco some very helpful outlets on third down this year. Camp was on watch to be the best receiver in the ACC until he got unlucky and had his collarbone broken. This guy i believe is higher than a 7th round talent and he is not the same as just picking a random guy in the 7th round. He actually has the potential to fill an immediate need and be a big help to Flacco and this offense even as a rookie...assuming he comes in and works and earns it

by the way. He has a posse. Be warned people. You will find his posse making accounts on this forum and if he isnt getting playing time or getting criticized they will appear on here and troll.

 

He is a steal though

I really liked this pick, a local guy who has some really nice quickness in the slot for us. I was afraid a team like New England or Denver would be all over him but luckily we were able to get him. I say he compares quite a bit to a Welker or Edelman in the slot.

I do think he's a lot like Edelman (not so much Welker). They have similar body types and skill sets. They're more possession guys as opposed to explosive weapons.

Compared to welker..he is far more athletic. Faster, way better vertical. Quicker release.

I see him being a massive steal for us.
