With this signing, some are questioning whether Baltimore will now look to other areas early in the 2019 NFL Draft.Short answer: No. Congrats, I’m not going to drag this out for another four paragraphs to answer the question you already knew. But if you’d like to stick around and read why, I’d certainly appreciate it.First, Seth Roberts isn’t the number one receiver that turns this offense into a scoring machine. He’s a good receiver — no doubt— but he’s not the star Baltimore has endlessly searched for. In truth, I’m excited to see Roberts on the Ravens. He’s a skilled receiver who consistently puts up 40 catches, 450 yards and three touchdowns.Second, I doubt anybody that’s been signed has changed the draft strategy for the offense, and I’m including Earl Thomas. Eric DeCosta is an Ozzie Newsome disciple. He’s studied and mentored behind one of the NFL’s best General Managers in history and also been his top co-counsel for years. The draft strategy is often ‘best player available’ and that won’t be changed by any addition, from Mark Ingram Stitched Lamar Jackson Jersey , Thomas and Roberts to the re-signing of Robert Griffin III or Nick Boyle.Finally, there are still needs on the roster and the signing of Roberts only moves the needle from red to yellow. The Ravens now have a solid WR2 with Roberts and quite possibly the best slot receiver this team has ever featured with Willie Snead IV, but even with these two compliments on the roster, there is a true need for a number one receiver. Somebody to not only move the chains, but become a threat to score early and often. The Ravens know of these players as the AFC North has featured superstar receivers for years with Antonio Brown, A.J. Green, Josh Gordon and the newest addition, Browns receiver Odell Beckham Jr. This strongly suggests that if a receiver like D.K. Metcalf or Parris Campbell were to still be on the board at 22, Baltimore will make the pick. If the Baltimore Ravens are collectively known for one thing, it would be great defensive play. Unfortunately Baby Lamar Jackson Jersey , they’re also pretty well known for equally inept offense, though they seem determined to shed that label this season if the first three games are any indication.This mainly shows in their red zone performance so far through 2018. In 12 trips, the usually maligned offense is a perfect 12 for 12 with six passing touchdowns coming from Joe Flacco and six rushing touchdowns coming from the team’s stable of backs.Not only is that a great number for red zone efficiency, it’s actually a historic one:Simply put, the Ravens offense has been surgical within the opposing teams 20 yard line this season. This speaks volumes about the type of offense they’d like to be. That is, a balanced attack that can pick defenses apart in different ways. Really, that’s all fans have been asking for over the past several years. Since their last playoff appearance in 2014, Baltimore has been tilted too far in favor of their defense, neglecting to supplement the offense with great talent.What’s funny about that is when you consider all the factors that are coming into play this season, the infusion of offensive talent isn’t nearly the only factor leading to the immense improvement. The other elements would have to be good play calling by maligned coordinator Marty Morninwheg Jaylon Ferguson Baltimore Ravens Jersey , as well as improved health and decision making from the quarterback.Joe Flacco hasn’t been perfect this season (especially not against Cincinnati in Week 2). But everything seems to be clicking for the veteran for the first time since his career year of 2014. In fact, he’s on pace for a career year when many people thought he was finished:Chemistry with his new receiving corps has been apparent, including rookie third round pick Mark Andrews, who has made some big time plays at tight end. The position will only grow stronger when first rounder Hayden Hurst returns to action, which should improve what’s been a robust offense this season.There’s always going to be room for improvement, and there certainly is in this case. The running game hasn’t been especially effective this year and could use more consistency moving forward this year.However, the offense now appears to have enough surrounding talent that they don’t necessarily need to rely on Alex Collins to make plays out of nothing as they did last season. This is well reflected by the numbers (especially in terms of ball distribution) that have them up there with the league’s best so far:While they aren’t quite in the class of a team like Kansas City despite what the numbers say, Baltimore’s attack appears to be revitalized in 2018. They’ll need to be firing on all cylinders against the Steelers on Sunday night to walk out of Pittsburgh with a victory. For now, it’s fair to say the front office’s commitment to improving one of the league’s worst offensive units last season was absolutely legit.
