The Baltimore Ravens are getting a little bit more comfortable in their QB situation this offseason, as they added three QB options in free agency and the draft: Brandon Weeden, Ryan Mallett and Justin Tucker.
The Ravens’ QB situation is an interesting one for both teams, but for the Ravens, they’re going to need to make a few adjustments in the draft and at the quarterback position, and they’ll be getting some help in free agent and the supplemental draft.
Here’s a look at the three possible QBs the Ravens might be looking at. 1.
Ryan Mallet: Mallett is a solid quarterback who has the athleticism to play both the run and the pass.
He had a career-high 10 touchdowns last season.
Mallett’s athleticism allows him to be effective in a variety of offense scenarios.
He is a better fit for the run game than the pass game.
Mallet was the Ravens starting QB in 2016, and he finished the season with a passer rating of 101.1.
Mallets passing accuracy is the best in the NFL, according to Pro Football Focus, and that number is not far off from that of Tom Brady.
Mallette has a decent arm and he’s a natural fit as a pocket passer.
Malley’s arm strength and ball skills allow him to throw the ball accurately, but his accuracy is also limited, which makes him a less-than-ideal fit for a franchise.
If Mallett can work on his accuracy, his accuracy could improve a lot.
Malleck was drafted first overall by the Browns in the 2018 NFL draft.
Justin Tucker: Tucker is the third quarterback in this draft, and the Ravens have been trying to work on the quarterback situation for some time.
Tucker was an undrafted free agent out of Alabama.
Tucker struggled last season, but he was still able to make some plays and throw a couple touchdowns.
Tucker is a much better fit in the passing game.
Tucker has a very good arm and can throw the football down the field.
Tucker can also throw the deep ball to tight ends, and his arm strength allows him in that regard.
Tucker’s accuracy is not great, but that is a good thing considering that he is still working on it.
Tucker had a very solid 2016 season, finishing with a career passer rating under 105.6.
Ryan Kelly: Kelly is the second quarterback in the third round.
Kelly was a second-round pick out of Texas A&M, and while he struggled in 2016 due to a number of injuries, he has shown flashes of being a good passer.
Kelly’s arm is good, and Kelly is an excellent athlete.
Kelly has good pocket presence and is very good at locating the ball, and when he does get the ball in the air, Kelly can put the ball on the ground.
Kelly is a natural pocket passer who has been able to put up great numbers in the run-game.
Kelly also has the arm strength to throw deep and the arm to make throws downfield.
Kelly had a solid 2016, finishing the season at 7-1 with a winning percentage of 60.9.
It would be a surprise if Kelly’s numbers fell this low.
Jake Browning: Browning is a second round pick out the University of North Carolina.
Browning was an unheralded freshman in 2015, and despite a strong showing at North Carolina, he struggled as a sophomore.
Brownings stock dropped to a low point last season after he had a bad game against LSU.
He also missed a lot of time with an injury.
Browns numbers are not great at the position, but it’s not clear that he’s finished his development at this level.
He has the size to be an effective NFL quarterback, and it is unclear if he can be a reliable option in the red zone.
Brown has the speed to be a quality quarterback, but there are questions about his arm.
Brown had a really bad game in the 2017 opener against Ohio State.
Josh Doctson: Doctson is the first of the three quarterbacks in the fourth round.
Doctson was an early enrollee for the 2017 NFL draft and made the team in 2017.
Docts numbers were a lot lower than his peers, but Doctson did show flashes of brilliance in the regular season.
Doctts accuracy was very good, as he had seven touchdown passes in the season opener against Oklahoma.
Doct was able to find receivers in the open field and also make some impressive throws down the sideline.
Doct had a good season last season with his accuracy and throwing ability.
Doct can also run well, and if he continues to work at his throwing and passing skills, he could be a solid option in an offense that likes to run the ball.
Doct is a really good athlete who can throw and throw well.
He’s a good athlete and could be an excellent option for a team that wants to run it.
Doct has shown some flashes of his ability in the preseason, and although he
