WR Chris Moore taken in fourth round at 107

Chris MooreNot having an explosive play-maker on offense last year killed the Ravens in 2015, but even with the expectations that last year’s first round pick Breshad Perriman will finally get on the field and the free agent signing of burner Mike Wallace, the team added another explosive guy in Chris Moore.

With the 107th overall pick and their second pick in the fourth round, the Ravens drafted the Cincinnati wide receiver who is raw as a receiver but has big play ability. Even Joe Flacco will struggle to overthrow this guy who averaged 22 yards per reception over the past two years. He had 33-percent of his receptions go for over 25 yards.

The route-tree can be developed but that sort of explosive ability is hard to come by and stretched the defense. When the Ravens last won a Super Bowl they did it with Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones running down the sidelines and forcing the defense back, neither were anywhere close to polished at the position.

Moore has plenty of room to develop but does have prospects to become a return man as well, though he is not experienced at returning kicks or punts.

He’s a prospect but has tremendous upside. He does not have to be a guy who catches the ball eight times a game to make a tremendous impact. As a junior at Ohio State, Moore had 221 yards and three touchdowns on just three catches.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
