Ravens fans would have pitched a fit if the team had passed on Corey Davis, Mike Williams or John Ross at No. 16. But as it turned out, they never came close to having a chance. In defiance of mock drafts everywhere, all three went off the board in the top nine picks.
Davis to the Tennessee Titans at No. 5 was one of the biggest surprises of the first round. But he was the receiver I would have taken first, given his combination of size, technical precision and production. I suspect that once he was gone, the chances of the Ravens picking a receiver in the first fell to almost nil.
Ross is tantalizing because of his remarkable speed, and the Ravens might rue facing him in Cincinnati for years to come. But I didn't see them taking an injury risk at that position after Breshad Perriman missed his entire rookie season in 2015.
And Williams seems like a candidate to struggle early given that his physical advantages won't be nearly what they were in college.
