How dealing with Orlando Brown Jr. could affect Ravens’ first round plans
Ravens get strong marks for the brown trade
We live in a world of instant response, and it wasn’t long before experts rated the Brown trade.
Here are some snippets from what was said:
Tyler Sullivan of CBS Sports: A +
“The Ravens got rid of a player who wanted to fold and made a strong return on them. So there’s not much to complain about here. What this deal has done for Baltimore is convert a consumable item into design flexibility, and do just that the clubs.” I want this time of year. The addition of these first along with multiple selections on Day 2 and Day 3 opens the board for Baltimore completely. “
Sports Illustrated’s Todd Karpovich: A.
“The Ravens could design a tackle, keep sophomore Tire Phillips at the correct tackle, or sign free agent Alejandro Villanueva. Baltimore now has $ 15.14 million below the salary cap to help other free- Agents sign or trade. “
Chris Schilser from Ebony Bird: B +
“If the ravens toss this draft out of the park, they win. The ravens aren’t far from being a Super Bowl team. This time next week, we could say that this deal gave the ravens the boost they wanted needed to get over the park. ” Humpback.”
Sheil Kapadia’s athlete: B.
“Ultimately, if the Ravens felt the Brown situation was untenable, it was a sensible move. They received no transportation but received adequate compensation. With such a talented squad they will not be able to pay . ” All of them, and instead of losing Brown possibly for free after the season, they could get him something. From a process standpoint, there is nothing wrong with that. “
Kevin Ostreicher from Ravens Wire: B-
“It will likely take three to four years to properly evaluate the Brown trade as no one currently knows how well Brown will play in Kansas City, who both teams will pick with the picks they have acquired, and how those players will perform . ” Take your time, but it is acceptable to give an initial grade based on the assumed value received by both teams. “
- “The Ravens now have two picks late in Round 1 and I’ve been told they are definitely targeting a broad receiver with either of them,” wrote ESPN’s Todd Mcshay. “I would be very surprised if one WR wasn’t one of those two picks. The other one could deal with the edge rush or the offensive tackle.”
- “The bottom line is that Brown would almost certainly be gone after the 2021 season,” wrote Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer. “And in the best case scenario, they would have gotten a third round comp pick for him in 2023. That would probably be somewhere around 100th place, and all of this shows why the Ravens had their feet on the price (a second round ). “
