I could actually hear myself now.
Wow, ee, I don't know if anybody's watching the replay on these.
Oh, we got someone in here.
Okay, Um, so I don't know if you guys can tell, but I did get new headphones.
They're pretty much exactly the same model as, Ah, my old ones actually have him right here.
See my old ones.
It's time to retire the white Sony headphones for the black version.
Um, they're pretty much exactly the same.
Only these actually work compared to the other ones that they just you know, they lasted me awhile.
Now, that's why I like Sony headphones, because they last a while, but yeah, they took a ****, man.
They're just not working anymore.
So I had to grab some new ones, which I did, um, shadow to the Corona virus.
So I don't have to pay rent this month anyway.
Okay, Let's get to it, man.
So before I wanted to talk about the Ravens wide receiver room, let me actually get set up over here.
I wanted to discuss the Ravens wide receiver room because it feels like a bunch of people have been talking about this, Um, a lot of people that are a lot of Ravens fans that I've seen are basically they would basically write it if we don't take a wide receiver in the first round of this year's draft.
And, um, I'm not in the same.
I'm not in that same boat.
I don't believe that.
We need to take a wide receiver in the first round.
I know a lot of people do, but I'm not in that camp.
I don't believe we absolutely need to take a wide receiver and around one.
That doesn't mean I don't believe we need a receiver, because I think we do at least one, you know, Ideally, we take one early and then another one later on either undrafted or, you know, in the later rounds just to have some competition in the room, man, you know, competition never heard anybody.
Um, so that's that would be my best case scenario, obviously, for other Ravens fans, they want us to trade up for Jerry. Judy.
They want to trade up for CD lamb.
They they're basically, like, all in on wide receivers.
Death is basically how some of these Ravens fans are acting, Um, you know, for me, it's it's it's not all like that.
I feel I don't I don't think we need to take a wide receiver.
I think we could.
If we take an offensive lineman, if we take a Nedra Usher, a middle linebacker in the first, I would be happy with that.
You know, I wouldn't be upset if we don't take a wide receiver in the first round.
And I know a lot of Ravens fans would be so.
But anyway, I wanted to talk about this.
Um, somebody sent me this.
They send me their mock draft, which, by the way, guys, if you want to send me stuff again new football podcast at gmail dot com Feel free to send me mock drafts.
Feel free to send me means pictures, videos, whatever you want to send me.
Guys, this is the email that you want to send it to right here.
New football podcasts.
So my guy Kyle Hester sent me a mock draft that he did, and, um, I can show it to you guys.
Here we have the screen shot is all right.
So I'll read it along with you guys.
We have given Kinlaw at 28.
Let let's just read the picks and then we'll go over the Michael Pittman at 55.
Willie Gay Junior at 60 Damian Lewis and 92 Troy die at 106 Lynn Bowden or is a boat.
And I think it's Bowden, um, Elton Robinson and Michael Divinity Junior Seau.
Um, not a bad, not a bad mock draft whatsoever.
Um, the only thing is, I feel like we could get Pittman maybe a little later, and I do not think we will be taken Willy Gate anywhere.
And I know a lot of Ravens fans do like Willie Gay a lot.
Um, and it's not that I don't like him.
I just don't think we're gonna take him at all because of his history with, you know, he punched his quarterback.
He cheated on a chemistry test.
He has some off the field stuff.
And as we've seen from the Ravens lately, they're just not at all.
You know, messing with those types of players.
And I feel like Willie Gay Junior is, um, you know, he's he just has off the field issues, and the Ravens have shown lately that they just they're not for that.
They're not for that whatsoever.
So I don't know if we'll take really gay.
But given Kinlaw, I don't know, a 28 will really taken interior defensive lineman.
I don't think it would be a bad pick because from what I've heard you've on Qin lies a pretty good player.
I've heard his name a lot, Um, but I don't know if that's where where we will go at 28 it just depends.
I wish I could have seen the big board here.
Michael Pittman. I like Michael criminal lots.
He's one of my favorite Seaver's in this class.
But to take him at 55 I think, would be a little bit early.
Um, Damian Lewis.
Not bad into your offensive lineman and 92 Troy die.
I know a lot of people like Troy die, including my co host Sonny.
He's a big fan Lynn about, and I've heard a lot about this guy or boat, and I don't know how to pronounce it.
Um, they say that he's very versatile, can line up in the backfield, throw the ball.
He does a lot of stuff.
Ellen Robinson at EJ and Michael Divinity Junior from L s U at linebacker.
So it's a pretty good Ah, pretty good mock draft man keeps Keep them coming.
Guys, if you guys want to send me your mock drafts and then we'll go ahead and just kind of take a look at them here on Sports Caster, you know where to send it to its new football podcast.
Now let's discuss this wide receiver room.
Okay, What are we expecting? So I've heard a lot of people say that you're expecting Hollywood Brown and Miles Boykin to take that next step.
Which, of course, is ideally, in an ideal world.
That's what will happen, right? Let me just tell you my expectations for this wide receiving court.
I think if Hollywood does not have a breakout year, it would be disappointing.
It would be extremely, extremely disappointing.
Why this guy has bulked up.
He has his screws taking out of his foot.
He should be fully healthy.
He's been working out with his cousin, a bee who, as much as I don't really like the idea of having him on the team is a great receiver.
He can probably help him with his route running.
He can turn into a beast of a receiver this season, and this could be his breakout season over 1000 yards.
That's I'm expecting big, big things from Hollywood Brown, huge things.
And to be honest with you, if he does not have a breakout season like has under 1000 yards has like three like a just a, ah, disappointing season.
I mean, it would be disappointing not only for him, but for us.
It would be disappointing because, you know, what's the excuse of that point? You know that Maybe I don't know that.
I just don't see what the excuse would be if he does not have a great season.
So I think Hollywood absolutely needs to, and I think he will fall out.
As for Miles Boykin, I know a lot of people have said even our own general manager, Eric DeCosta, has mentioned in their second year they need to step up.
So I'm sure they're expecting that from Boykin.
I would definitely like to see him get more opportunities on the field.
You know, more targets, you know, going his way, Um, especially in the red zone.
But I just I don't know.
I don't know if he's gonna take the next step.
I hope he's been working.
Justus hard is Hollywood and all these other receivers.
Maybe he's just not really showing it that much, but I do hope he is out there working really hard and honing his craft because it would be nice if he could step up the second year as well.
And we actually have two young, really good receivers.
But even though we're counting on Boykin to develop, we still need to take a wide receiver.
In my opinion again, it doesn't have to be in the first, but I would like it's still be pretty early.
Aside from that, you have Sneed.
We know what he does.
He's gonna, you know, get the convert third downs.
He's gonna be sure handed most of the time possession receiver over the slot over the middle.
You know, we know what to expect.
Well, he's not so much of a veteran, but he's definitely the veteran of the receiving room right now.
So you know, we know what to expect from Sneed.
Hopefully, he comes out and just placed expectations.
Really, That's really what it comes down to.
Aside from that.
Thank you for the tips, By the way, I do appreciate that.
Aside from that, I mean, what do we got? We got, we re signed Chris Moore, I guess.
But he's mostly gonna play on special teams. Probably.
Um, Jalil Scott.
As much as I would love for Jalil Scott to step in here this coming year and just ball out because he's a big red zone threat, I don't know, I don't think we're gonna use them that much.
It seems like Harbaugh doesn't really like him.
They're not a big fan of his.
I wish they were because I would really like to see what he can do with some actual playing time.
But I don't know, man and I think that's that'll be it.
That's it for the receiving corps right now, man and it's definitely not a great receiving corps, but we're used to that.
We're used to having like the worst receiving corps in the league.
Every year you're in, you're out on this year.
I don't think is any exception.
But I do believe Hollywood will absolutely step up, have a great breakout season because he asked to.
There's no excuse for him, not to.
Expectations aren't super high.
Maybe Wide receiver to wide receiver.
Three numbers would be good for him, But I don't know, man.
I don't know if we'll be able to do that because, you know, the few things you did see, we saw some flashes from Boykin and they were nice.
But I just don't know if he's going to get that many opportunities.
And I don't know if Lamar is gonna be looking that way.
Um, Sneed, you know, he should do his thing.
We know what to expect from him.
I'm not expecting absolutely anything from him.
So anything is a plus and same thing for Jill Scott.
I'm not expecting anything from him.
So that being said guys, I mean, I would like a receiver early on.
Just not, you know, we're not in desperate absolute need of a receiver, In my opinion, it is a need.
Don't don't Don't think I'm just absolutely glossing over the need of for wide receiver.
I know we need a ride wide receiver, but we also need a middle linebacker.
We also need an interior offensive lineman or just a lineman for depth.
Um, so, yeah, man, it's gonna be interesting to see how this draft plays out.
I really can't wait.
It's coming up here pretty soon, but anyways, guys, I'm gonna go ahead and get out of here.
