The Baltimore Ravens have plenty of players who are ready to break out in a big way during the 2022 NFL season. They made plenty of roster moves to shore up their depth at many different positions, and if they can get players back healthy that missed time during 2021, they could be a force to be reckoned with this upcoming season.

Despite so many players seemingly break out candidates for Baltimore, Alex Kay of Bleacher Report predicted wide receiver Devin Duvernay will be the Ravens’ biggest bust of the 2022 season for the team. Kay discussed how Duvernay doesn’t have big stats to show from a receiving perspective over his first two years in the league.

“With Brown and Sammy Watkins now gone, Devin Duvernay is poised to step into the WR2 role across from Rashod Bateman…While Duvernay has proven himself to be an elite return man—evidenced by his Pro Bowl nod in 2021—he only has 53 career receptions for 473 yards and a pair of touchdowns since entering the league in 2020.”

Kay also talked about how Baltimore would benefit from having a proven veteran on their roster, and that they’re likely to regret trusting Duvernay to be their second wide receiver option.

“Although Duvernay is confident he can thrive with an expanded workload, the Baltimore passing offense will be set back by a lack of battle-tested wideouts on the roster…The Ravens are likely to regret not drafting a replacement for Brown and trusting Duvernay to make a seamless transition to WR2 as they look to return to the playoffs following a disappointing 2021 season.”

Duvernay being on any sort of “bust” list is surprising. The former Texas star has shown plenty of flashes as a wideout in limited opportunities. With an increased role, Duvernay can use his speed to his advantage as he takes on a bigger role within the Baltimore offense.
