NFL Draft Preview: Indianapolis Colts needs and projected picks

The Baltimore Ravens find themselves in a tough symbol entering a 2017 draft. They are on a verge of wanting a rebuild, though still have adequate talent to compete. Ozzie Newsome will positively fill a diseased spots on this group to concede a talent to hopefully propel them into a playoffs again. With a initial pick, a Ravens squeeze Derek Barnett to seaside adult a pass rush for a Ravens. Barnett is an ultra-talented DE that plays with a high motor. He can get after a QB (He binds a UT record for sacks over Reggie White), as good as play a run above average. Personal opinion, we consider on gameday, he is each bit as gifted as Myles Garrett and to be means to get this form of actor during this symbol in a breeze will be a take for a Ravens. He will assistance to say this defensive section as one of a tops in Fantasy.

In a second round, a Ravens go after Curtis Samuel to supplement abyss to a WR position after a retirement of Steve Smith. Samuel has a athleticism to surpass in this league, though his track using and hands could play a cause in his personification time early on. He will expected find a symbol on a abyss breeze as a Ravens WR3/WR4 in 2017. He might reason value in Dynasty formats, though in anniversary leagues he will reason small to any value for 2017.

Joe Flacco had a bounce-back deteriorate in 2016 in a way. He was behind to looking staid in a pocket, and surpassing a 4,000-yard symbol again. The pieces are in place for Flacco to again make some grain in Fantasy, though a offset inlet of this offense could reason him behind some. He has a prolonged approach to go to be deliberate as a Fantasy starting QB, though drafting him as your QB2 and personification a matchups, if your QB1 is not a stud, would not be that bad of a pierce in 2017.

The receiving options for a Ravens leave a lot to be desired, with Mike Wallace as a lead choice in a attack. Wallace tends to be a really streaky actor and tough to trust in your lineups during times. But he is a WR1 and will see copiousness of targets in 2017. His value is that of a WR3 in drafts, so we should be means to get him during a reasonable price. A integrate of a other options in a flitting diversion are a over-hyped Breshad Perriman and oft-injured Dennis Pitta. Perriman, if anything, is a late turn navigator in drafts, though should be a waiver handle guy. Pitta would be a good aim during TE if we abandon drafting any early on and like to tide this position.

With a cessation of Kenneth Dixon, newly acquired Danny Woodhead will be given a possibility to be a lead dog of this using diversion for a initial month of a season. Coming off an ACL injury, Woodhead might start a reason a bit slow, though we all know what he is able of once healthy. Woodhead is a ideal behind to fit into a Ravens using diversion with his ability to hide between a tackles as good as locate passes out of a backfield.

Joe Flacco had a bounceback year in 2016, though Baltimore’s singular receiving options could revoke his value.

The signing kills a intensity for Dixon in a brief tenure for a 2017 season, as Woodhead has border RB2/RB3 potential. Look for Fantasy owners to burst on Woodhead someday in a sixth or seventh rounds of drafts. Kenneth Dixon done a mistake, and now has to lay out a initial 4 games of a deteriorate that could concede we to get a take late in a draft. Dixon has all a intensity to finish as a Top 25 RB, and if he comes behind and plays with a chip on his shoulder, he could really good be that form of player. I’m a large fan of his game, as he can lift a bucket as a runner, has good parallel speed and is good in a open margin throwing balls out of a backfield. But of course, this is all on Dixon to uncover once he returns, as Woodhead will not give this pursuit adult easily. If your RB abyss looks plain during a top, don’t be fearful to squeeze Dixon as your RB4. You’ll appreciate me later.
