Anquan Boldin was added to provide a true No. 1 receiver, but he has been a marginal top target, at best, as a Raven.
Most of his problems stem from his lack of burst, as Boldin is simply unable to free himself from coverage.
While this issue is no surprise, his struggles with drops have been a shock. His hands were renowned for their strength, and he can pluck the ball out of the air with one hand like few receivers can.
That makes it all the more baffling that he was among the league leaders in drops in 2011, and some came at key moments.
Boldin needs to prove that the Ravens made a wise decision trading for him. With Torrey Smith opposite him, Boldin doesn't need to be elite, but he at least needs to be consistent.
