With the 26th pick in the 2015 Arrowhead Pride mock draft, Baltimore Ravens GM Ben S selects...

Arizona State WR Jaelen Strong

Personally, I don't believe Jaelen is going to make it this far. With that being said, I think that this would be an excellent pick for the Ravens. Jaelen Strong reminds me a lot of a young Anquan Boldin (or even Dwayne Bowe) - an all-around solid football player that can step in and fight for a starting spot on day one. I don't believe he is going to make the same kind of impact as the rookie receiver class did last year, but I do believe he will turn out to be an excellent receiver after spending a year in league and having some exposure to the highest levels of coaching and talent. Being on the Ravens will give Jaelen plenty of experience to progress as a player.

The biggest criticism I would have regarding Jaelen's game would really just be that it's "boring". He isn't Odell Beckham type player who is going to step in and immediately start selling jerseys - he's the Dwayne Bowe type player who leads the NFL in touchdowns and is subsequently rated in the low 90's on Madden. The only big fans of this guy are fans of whichever team he plays for (which is why I would love to see this guy play for the Chiefs).
