As training camp gets closer, I thought it would be good to look at the Ravens new members that contribute to their effectiveness as a team in general.
The Ravens drafted 6'1" Devard Darling from Washington State and 5'11" Kevin Johnson from the National Football League back in April. This is part of the Ravens strategy to be smaller, faster and more dependable.
According to the Ravens homepage, receivers coach David Shaw said:
"We want to get more dependable. We want to give a young quarterback (Kyle Boller) someone who’s going to be there every week and have them build a relationship to where they can play off of each other. What a young quarterback needs is defense, a running game, consistent receivers."

So what do you think? Do you think that this new strategy will work well for the Ravens? Personally, I hope so.
