WR Torrey Smith - Baltimore Ravens
|6-0, 204||Born: 1-26-1989||College: Maryland||Drafted: Round 2|
Quick fantasy outlook: It was easy to predict growth for Torrey Smith between his 2011 rookie season and his second season in 2012. There is a little more uncertainty in Smith's outlook this offseason, though. The departure of veteran receiver Anquan Boldin means that the focus of the opposing pass defenses will be on Smith first and foremost. Smith showed inconsistency last season, having a number of very good games but also some where he was nearly invisible. In a way, he and Joe Flacco have the same problem (regular season inconsistency), and they're the people who should have the biggest impact on whether or not each can overcome that inconsistency. With his skill set (defense-stretching speed) and his quarterback (big arm, great deep ball thrower), Smith may be a "boom or bust" player again this year.
