Torrey Smith BAL -WRa more well-rounded receiver
Ravens HC John Harbaugh has been impressed by the improvement he's seen from 2nd-year WR Torrey Smith this offseason. “He’s the most efficient improver, if that’s a word, I’ve ever seen,” Harbaugh said. “[His] route-running’s improved. He’s improved his hands. He’s improved with understanding the blitz package, when he’s hot and when he’s not. He’s improved downfield with his blocking. Really, everything he’s gotten better.” We know Smith can get deep. He averaged 16.8 yards per catch last season, and he hauled in 14 balls of 20+ yards. If he can add the short and intermediate stuff to his repertoire, he's capable of a true breakout campaign in 2012.

Torrey Smith BAL -WRfills a big need in Baltimore
Baltimore snagged Maryland WR Torrey Smith with the 58th overall pick of the draft. There was talk of the Ravens eyeing Smith in the 1st-round, so they did well to get him here. Smith is a speedster, which is exactly what Baltimore’s offense has been lacking. He’ll likely begin his career in the slot, with Derrick Mason and Anquan Boldin staying outside. But Smith eventually projects as an excellent #2 WR. He’ll also provide a spark on special teams.
