the Ravens’ edge relies heavily on Sizzle
With his strong mechanics, powerful arm, and gaudy college numbers, it’s no surprise Mahomes has emerged as an early round pick in the 2017 draft. Once he gets to the big leagues, he’ll still have a lot to prove.
A dodgy defense helped the nation’s No. 1 passing offense (by nearly 100 yards!) drop to a 5-7 season last fall. Mahomes’ big numbers in the midst of a losing season, combined with his freewheeling, improvising tactics in the pocket have earned him a label many quarterbacks have struggled to shed: gunslinger.
Pretty cut and dry: college football teams can now have 10 assistant coaches instead of nine, starting Jan. 9, 2018. The main opposition was the timing. If it went into effect immediately, it would have caused a problem for schools to figure out money situations during the middle of a budget cycle.
Barber: Father Time is inching closer on the Baltimore Ravens’ elite pass rusher, Terrell Suggs. The Ravens’ six-time Pro Bowler turns 35 in October. Also, Baltimore released Elvis Dumervil this offseason. The current depth at pass rush is lacking, and Carl Lawson will help bring about the youth movement.
As it stands, the Ravens’ edge relies heavily on Sizzle, but both Matt Judon and Za’Darius Smith are also on the roster.
The pick came down to Lawson or Tim Williams, but in the end Lawson wins. Williams feels more one-dimensional and his off-the-field issues are worrisome. It wasn’t only the “bad” that kept NFL Cheap Jerseys the Beatdown from not taking Williams, though — Lawson produced at a first-team All-SEC level in 2016, stuffing Baseball Jerseys Wholesale the stat sheet with 13.5 tackles for loss, nine of them sacks.
