The Ravens came into the offseason with a mission to overhaul their receiving corps, and indeed, Joe Flacco‘s top five targets might be players who weren’t wearing black and purple last season. Will they be better? Probably. Will they be good? Hard to say. Michael Crabtree is a solid possession receiver with the size to make plays in the red zone, but he also has dropped 19 passes over the past three years, which is third most among wideouts. John Brownhasn’t looked the same since a breakout 2015 season while fighting the effects of sickle cell anemia, and Willie Snead could barely get on the field for the Saints last season, first because of a suspension and then various injuries. The new tight end duo of Hayden Hurst and Mark Andrews should help Lamar Jacksonin 2019 and beyond, but rookie tight ends are always more likely to disappoint than impress. Alex Collins impressed during his debut season in Baltimore, but no one on a transitioning Ravens offense seems guaranteed to hold down his starting role into 2019.
