RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
One of Baltimore's primary targets for much of the 2015 season, Gillmore was limited to 10 appearances by back and shoulder injuries, with the latter ultimately requiring offseason surgery. He proved competent as both a receiver and blocker, yet the Ravens still added Ben Watson in free agency, after using a 2015 second-round selection on Maxx Williams. What's more, Dennis Pitta hopes to play for the first time since September of 2014, giving the Ravens quite a crowd at tight end. With Watson expected to start, Gillmore may have a hard time getting on the field – and that's if he's even healthy by Week 1.
Gillmore, a 2014 third-round draft pick, spent most of his rookie season as the Ravens' No. 2 tight end behind Owen Daniels, after Dennis Pitta suffered a career-threatening hip injury. While he may open 2015 as the team's starter, Gillmore is unlikely to put up prolific receiving numbers. Rather, rookie second-rounder Maxx Williams is a better bet to emerge as one of Joe Flacco's favorite targets.
The Ravens selected Gilmore toward the end of the third round in the 2014 draft, but the team already has Dennis Pitta and Owen Daniels in place. While Gilmore could come into some kind of role if one of those two gets injured, he will likely be an observer for much of his rookie season. Given that he's mostly known for his blocking, Gilmore could poach a touchdown or two as the third tight end in goal-line formations.
