Two years ago, the Baltimore Ravens went into the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft and acquired five starting-caliber players.
One of the best late rounds in Ravens’ draft history, but it was not the most heralded by Mike Renner of Pro Football Focus when ranking the Ravens best and worst picks.
Best: Kenneth Dixon, RB, Louisiana Tech (Rd. 4, No. 134)
Dixon could very well be the replacement for Ray Rice the Ravens have been searching for. We had a second-round grade on him and Dixon’s +8.1 receiving grade last year was tops in the draft class, with his elusive rating ranking second.
Worst: Chris Moore, WR, Cincinnati (Rd. 4, No. 107)
In a fairly weak receiver class we didn’t see Moore being worthy of his fourth-round draft status. His big-play ability was far too erratic in college to see it translating well to the pros.
