Five teams that make sense for Penn State WR Chris Godwin on Day 2 of the NFL Draft

Three wide receivers were taken in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft and all three went in the top 10 overall.
Western Michigan’s Corey Davis (No. 5 overall to the Tennessee Titans), Clemson’s Mike Williams (No. 7, LA Chargers) and Washington’s John Ross (No. 9, Cincinnati Bengals) all heard their names called Thursday night live from Philadelphia.
One receiver still waiting to get the NFL call is Penn State’s Chris Godwin. The vast majority of draft pundits had Godwin going on day two between rounds 2-3 so there’s a solid chance that the third-team All-Big Ten selection comes off the board on Friday.
Here are five teams that seem like realistic landing spots for Penn State’s star pass catcher.

Why Godwin fits here: Get ready for the Delaware double dip. Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, a record-setting passer at the University of Delaware, would love to fire downfield strikes to Godwin, a Middletown, Delaware native. Flacco had his first 4,000-plus yard passing season in 2016, finishing with 4,317 yards. But his touchdown-to-interception ratio was something to be desired as the former Super Bowl MVP had 20 TDs against 15 picks. Meanwhile, Godwin had a team-high 11 touchdown grabs during his final collegiate campaign. The Ravens’ front office would be wise to find the strong-armed Flacco another target.
