    Torrey Smith's expectations should reflect his Ravens days

    Tim McManus ESPN Staff Writer Close Follow on Twitter Today's Philadelphia Eagles question: Let's go with 47 catches, 820 yards, six touchdowns. I tend to think Torrey Smith will look more like the receiver he was in Baltimore, where he averaged 53 catches, 898 yards and close to eight touchdowns, as opposed to the one we saw in San Francisco the past two seasons (average of 27 catches, 465 yards and 3.5 TDs). He joined the 49ers just as they fell into their descent. They cycled through two one-and-done head coaches in 2015 and 2016 (Jim Tomsula and Chip Kelly), rotated between Colin Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert at quarterback, and went a combined 7-25.

    Grading the Baltimore Ravens' 2017 NFL draft class

    Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome is widely regarded as one of the league’s best, and his haul in the 2017 NFL draft should do plenty to reinforce that reputation. While the Ravens failed to add much-needed depth at receiver to help quarterback Joe Flacco, they loaded up on defensive value early on before beefing up the interior of the offensive line in the later rounds. They found themselves a big, physical corner with impressive athleticism in the first round, then loaded up on defensive line help with their next three picks, both inside and on the edge. Were the Ravens wise to stock up on trench talent, or should they have done more to help their high-priced franchise passer?
