Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome says the team is counting on Torrey Smith to step up as a leader following the trade of Anquan Boldin.
The Ravens will also count on Smith to become a more complete player, running a wider arrange of routes and beating coverage more than taking it away. "Torrey Smith knows exactly what needs to be done now," Newsome said. "He had two years with Anquan. He's been mentored by him." Smith was was held under 50 receptions in 16 starts last year. The Ravens will need 60-plus out of him in 2013.
Smith and Bolden are two TOTALLY different WR's. love everything Ozzy does up there but to think that Smith will do what Bolden did is just unrealistic chatter.
what would you project for smith this year?
i dont know but with Bolden gone, Smith will probably see more double coverage. Smith is more of a burner where as Bolden is stronger, bigger and has great catching skills. just get it in his direction and he has the ability to go after it and make the catch with a defender all over him.
