Eric DeCosta hopes to build offense to the point that it’s undefendable

The Ravens used a pair of early round picks on wide receivers in last year’s draft, but it doesn’t sound like the additions of Marquise Brown and Miles Boykin are going to keep them from addressing that spot early in this year’s draft.

Ravens General Manager Eric DeCosta said he likes the makeup of the group, which also includes Willie Snead and Chris Moore, but that he’d wade into a deep pool of prospects at the position in order to build an offense that’s even harder to stop than last year’s edition.

“Do we feel the urgency? We probably feel that with every position,” DeCosta said, via the team’s website. “We want to be the best we can be at every position. This happens to be a wide receiver class with a lot of really good players. If we’re on the clock and we think that guy is the best player, we’ll probably pick him. Hopefully we can build our offense to the point where we can say, ‘Hey, we’re undefendable.'”

The team’s website mentions Justin Jefferson, Tee Higgins, Denzel Mims and Laviska Shenault as players that have been linked with the Ravens in mock drafts and the high volume of prospects this year may man DeCosta can wait to get his man after the first round.

  1. Need more than a one trick pony, and one hit wonder at QB to be an “undefendable” offense.
    Lamar Jackson is an average QB. Pretty good runner, horrible passer.
    Patrick Mahomes is a GREAT QB. Great runner. Great Passer. Awesome improviser.

    For that reason, Harbaugh, DeCosta, and Lamar will be coming up short over the next dozen years to Andy Reid, Brett Veach, and Mr. Patrick Mahomes

  2. Isn’t that the plan/goal for every Owner, Coach, Team, Player or anyone else within an organization on any level?

    Love it. Now that the Patriots are irrelevant we have a new ARC rivalry with Chiefs fans. Nothing still beats the rivalry (and respect) of Ravens and Steelers.

  4. Lamar Jackson is not average. He was only the second unamious MVP in 100 years of NFL history. Mahomes was not the other one.
