Baltimore Ravens Drafted: Mark Clayton (2005)
The Baltimore Ravens’ struggles on offense in the early 2000’s weren’t exclusive to the quarterback position. After seeing seven different players lead the team over their first nine years in Baltimore, the Ravens selected wide receiver Mark Clayton with the 22nd overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft. But Clayton didn’t really fare much better than any of the guys they already had, considering he failed to eclipse more than 940 yards or five touchdowns receiving during his five years in Baltimore.
Could Have Drafted: Roddy White
Meanwhile, the next wide receiver taken in that draft — Roddy White from UAB — had six-straight seasons with 1,000 yards receiving as a member of the Atlanta Falcons, and retired in 2015 as the franchise’s all-time leader in catches and receiving yards.
