Baltimore Ravens: Brandin Cooks

With the Baltimore Ravens looking to add a wide receiver and tight end at some point in the draft, here are some numbers from ESPN Stats & Information on some selected prospects at those positions:

FIRST ROUND

Ebron
Eric Ebron, North Carolina TE: Averaged 8.7 yards after the catch, best of any of the top 10 tight end prospects.

Odell Beckham Jr., LSU WR: Caught 26 passes thrown 15 yards or longer downfield last season, most among qualifying receivers. He had multiple receptions on passes of this distance in 7 of 13 games.

Brandin Cooks, Oregon WR: Gained 1,215 yards after the catch over the past two seasons, which ranked fourth among qualifying receivers. During that time, he had 23 receptions in which he gained at least 15 yards after the catch.

Marqise Lee, USC WR: Trojan quarterbacks completed 69.7 percent of their pass attempts with 29 touchdowns and just one interception when targeting Marqise Lee in his career. They averaged 10.3 yards every time they targeted Lee.

Kelvin Benjamin, Florida State WR: Produced a first down or touchdown on 83.3 percent of his receptions last season, tied for the third-highest percentage of any FBS wide receiver.

SECOND ROUND

Jace Amaro, Texas Tech TE: Produced 33 receptions of 15 yards or longer, 11th-most in the FBS and 10 more than any other tight end.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Washington TE: Had only three drops in 149 targets over the past two seasons. His drop percentage of 2 percent is the lowest of any top tight end prospect.

Davante Adams, Fresno State WR: Topped the FBS with 13 receiving touchdowns of 20 yards or longer. He also led the FBS in receptions (131) and touchdown catches (24).

THIRD ROUND

Jordan Matthews, Vanderbilt WR: Led all qualifying receivers with 44 receptions and 421 yards on screen passes last season. He averaged 9.6 yards per reception on screens.

Analyzing Kiper 3.0: Ravens

In his latest mock draft, ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. has the Baltimore Ravens taking a wide receiver. The position isn't a surprise, but the name might be.

Kiper has Oregon State's Brandin Cooks going to the Ravens at No. 17. Overlooked because of his size (5-foot-9), Cooks generated a lot of buzz last month when he ran the second-fastest 40 of the weekend at 4.33 seconds and was equally as impressive in the on-field drills.

This solidified Cooks as a first-round prospect along with the likes of Mike Evans, Marqise Lee and Kelvin Benjamin, all of whom have been linked to the Ravens at some point.

I'm not sold on the Ravens going with Cooks. If they sign a wide receiver like Steve Smith in free agency, the Ravens don't want two targets for Joe Flacco under 6-foot.

The Ravens still need to take a young receiver in the first couple of rounds, no matter what they do in free agency. But Cooks seems to be a risky prospect who could join Travis Taylor and Mark Clayton as disappointing first-round wide receivers.
