Zach Sieler may or may not become a key cog of the Ravens future.
But as long as he’s on the roster, he’ll represent an important link to their past.
The sixth-round defensive lineman from Ferris State was the 193rd pick in the draft, but the final pick for Ravens General Manager Ozzie Newsome.
“It’s been a lot of picks,” Newsome said. “A lot of wins and a lot of losses. Even though it’s a finality with that, it’s not finality with what we’ll continue to do for the Baltimore Ravens.”
It’s also far from the end of Newsome’s legacy in football, after a brilliant career on and off the field.
Highsmith also said that he had Allen ranked fifth among all of the top quarterbacks, behind Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, and Lamar Jackson.
Allen explained before the draft that talk about his inaccuracy bothered him.
“I think if you look at the film at the times that I did miss, my feet were jacked,” Allen said on PFT Live. “Going back to our offensive system I was asked to Cheap NFL Jerseys Nike do a lot of things within our system. Threw the ball downfield a lot. I am the one to admit that I didn’t put the ball where it needed to be all the time. But, you know, given the circumstances that we had in Wyoming, we won two back-to-back eight-win seasons. It was a place where we ended up winning football games. I think that I helped out in that Baseball Jerseys For Sale manner putting the team in the best position to win football games.”
Allen didn’t mention that his receivers weren’t great (to his credit), but others made that excuse for him. From Highsmith’s perspective, that’s not an excuse. Which helps provide the reasons why Allen isn’t a Brown.
