Ravens add a quarterback in the sixth round

During the long days before the draft began, there was talk from the Ravens about adding a rookie to Joe Flacco and Tyrod Taylor in the quarterback room.

They did that with the 194th overall pick during the sixth round on Saturday. The Ravens selected Keith Wenning of Ball State, who drew a fair amount of interest around the league over the last couple of months.

The Ravens were one team that made their interest known by hosting Wenning on a visit in April. Wenning started all four years in college for Ball State and leaves as the career leader in every major passing stat, but it’s hard to find too many people who think he’ll be an NFL starter because of his limited physical skills.

He’ll fight for a backup role in Baltimore, then, and could hang around the league a while if he proves to be a worthy addition to the depth chart while holding a clipboard.

    He’ll be the starter there before you know it!

    Who was that Ball State QB a few years ago that 49er fans were claiming was their savior during the dark years?

    His name is 1 letter away from “Winning”. Had he changed it legally before the draft, he’dve been a #1 pick!

    Probably an upgrade to Flacco

    Gotta love the trolls thinking joe only played football in 2013. Mind you it wasn’t a good year, but his worst produced an 8-8 record.

    Who was the Super Bowl MVP and winningest qb through the first six years of his career again?

    Mike Mayok made a statement this afternoon that really got my attention – “You’re only as good as your back-up quarterback”, and said that in 2013, 50+ players started at QB. With 32 teams, you do the math. Joe Flacco has started every game in his career – that can’t continue. Tyrod Taylor is a heck of a football player, but the opposite of Flacco and the kind of QB that the offense, even Kubiak’s, is designed around. Nice pick.
