He’s extremely athletic and gifted for a player of his caliber, at the same time having the intelligence and ability to be the best in his position for a long time.
Stanley’s other attacking shots in the 2016 draft class were transferred from the teams that drafted them despite having played well early in their careers. Jack Conklin was the eighth overall choice, but Tennessee Titans let him go to Cleveland freely. Laremy Tunsil was the 13th choice, but Miami Dolphins switched him to Houston.
However, Ravens has invested in keeping homegrown talent ̵1; a defining principle by General Manager Eric DeCosta. Earlier this month, Ravens asked Marlon Humphrey to extend his five-year contract, reportedly making him the second highest-paid winger in the game.
DeCosta made waves during his farewell when he traded in exchange for star-crossed player Yannick Ngakoue, showing Raven’s desire to win at the moment. But DeCosta is also holding a ground for years of championship competition.
Stanley is also heavily involved in the Baltimore community, with particular emphasis on Raven’s social justice initiatives. He has also provided significant support to Maryland SPCA and BARCS Animal Shelter in Baltimore, in addition to working with youth programs such as the Casey Cares Foundation, Boys & Girls Club of Metropolitan Baltimore and Up2Us Sports.
