The Baltimore Ravens currently have plenty of talented young receivers on their roster. Marquise Brown, Miles Boykin, Devin Duvernay, and James Proche will be looking to continue to prove themselves, especially with some of them expected to take on much larger roles. However, Baltimore could look to add another young receiver to that group.

Kadarius Toney would be an enticing option for the Ravens’ offense. In his four years at the University of Florida, Toney accumulated 1,590 receiving yards and 12 receiving touchdowns, with 984 yards and 10 scores in 2020. He also put up 580 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns, showing that he’s a versatile threat in multiple facets of the offense. He was also a star quarterback in high school, so if selected by Baltimore, he could be in the middle of some exciting trick plays.

Toney is absolutely electric in the open field. When he gets the ball in his hands he’s a huge hassle to bring down, as he can run past defenders with his speed, create space for himself with his agility, or even outmuscle them with his underrated physicality.

Toney is going to be a playmaker somewhere in the NFL. However, some people are concerned about a potential fit with the Ravens because of his size. Toney stands at 5-foot-11 and weighs 189 pounds, which is similar to the build of Brown, who already has scored 15 touchdowns in his first two years in a Baltimore uniform. While Brown’s success as a smaller receiver in the Ravens’ offense is promising for a player like Toney, some think he’s just too similar to Brown to justify picking him in the first round, where he’s projected to be selected.

The former Gator has a little bit of work to do as a route-runner, but there’s no doubt that defenses have to account for him on every single play due to his game breaking ability. No matter how tall a player is, talent is talent, and Toney would make Baltimore’s offense better in multiple different ways.
