The Baltimore Ravens were a team with a ton of question marks heading into the 2018 season, as nobody knew what we were really going to get from Joe Flacco. Flacco has been underwhelming since leading the team to a Super Bowl earlier in his career, and after drafting Lamar Jackson in the first round this past April, many expected Flacco’s time to be coming to an end.
If Flacco is going out, he is going out swinging, as he has the Ravens playing at a high level right now. The veteran quarterback has looked better than he has in a very long time, and with some weapons finally at the wide receiver position, he is taking more shots downfield, and the Ravens are one of the better teams in the AFC so far in 2018.
The Ravens defense has been playing at a high level as well, and this could be the year they finally get back to the top of the AFC North. Safety Eric Weddle is still one of the best in the game, but he is getting up there in age, and it may be time for the team to start thinking about life after No. 32.
One player in this draft class that would be a nice replacement is Taylor Rapp from Washington, who has a tremendous nose for the ball, and loves to come up and make a big play. He is a big reason why the Huskies have been one of the better Pac-12 teams during his career, and in Baltimore, he would be a great addition to a secondary that continues to improve each week.
