lol come on now, he was worth at least 1 win last season in the first game thanks to all the QB injury and suspended Ben. And while we ultimately lost the Superbowl, we might not have made it even that far if we had gone 11-5 and the Ravens had won the division instead

honestly that's as much as any team could hope for out of a 5th round pick

that being said, it did seem a bit silly to take a QB like him that high without trying to utilize his athletic ability more rather than just develop him strictly as a backup QB
