Torrey Smith Drafted By Baltimore Ravens: How He'll Fit In Their Offense

Few would have identified wide receiver as a position of need for the Baltimore Ravens in the 2011 NFL Draft. In drafting Torrey Smith of the Maryland Terrapins, the Ravens added to an already solid core group of receivers that includes T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Anquan Boldin, and Derrick Mason.

This crowded group of wide receivers just got more crowd with Smith in the mix. He's yet another big and fast receiver that will cause plenty of match-up problems for opposing defenses. But despite the impressively deep group of receivers on Baltimore's roster in 2010, the team ranked only 20th in passing. The offense led by quarterback Joe Flacco averaged 208.4 passing yards per game, and finished the season with 25 passing touchdowns.

Smith will hope to help improve on that mark. The Ravens offense has been improving each year since Cam Cameron became offensive coordinator in 2008, and with even more offensive firepower now on the team, they'll hope that will continue in 2011.
