Quick hit looks at six of the WR prospects slated to be selected in the fourth and fifth rounds, where the Ravens have piled up six draft picks.

 

There is definitely a sleeper or two in there.

Kenny Bell is the guy I would target out of that group. I think he will be a solid producer for many years, probably not a #1 type but he does a lot of things well.

The fact that he benched pressed only 7 reps doesnt throw up big red flags to you? I would think that physical corners will disrupt his route, he'll never beat press coverage, he wouldnt hold onto the ball if hit while catching. One good crack and he might break something.

I mean, I know everyone wants a new Torrey Smith, but he at least benched 19 reps in his combine, and is built like a football player.

Maybe if they target him for kick returner in the late rounds, since they currently dont have one, I can get down with that.

I think the Ravens will likely only draft 1 WR and it'll be in the first 3 rounds. How does Diggs stock look at the moment?? Still 3rd-4th round?

2nd to 5th depending on the source.

Bench press is literally the last thing I care about when looking at a WR prospect.

There was a WR in last year's class who did 7 reps on the bench. His name was Odell Beckham Jr.

Fair enough. Cant argue with that.

I'm real big on the idea of targeting Chris Conley in the mid-rounds. I think at that point the risk of his lack of production at Georgia would be palatable. That size (6'2" 213lbs) with that kind of explosive ability could be something very special if he can put it all together. 

 

I also really like Vince Mayle out of Wazzou. He's a big guy (6'3" 220lbs) and he's not overly fast or quick, but he played the Senior Bowl with a broken thumb and did pretty well. He's tough and that's something I like in a WR.

I think 4th round would be reasonable for Stefon Diggs. 

 

My concern with him is durability. However, he fills two needs of being a vertical threat and a return specialist. I also like his Terps teammate, Deon Long. Long isn't very big (6'1" 195-200lbs), but he's absolutely jacked.

Right, Diggs can step in and hopefully be a good returner from Day 1.
