  • First 2 Draft Picks

    just wondering who fellow Ravens fans want to see Baltimore draft.

    FIRST ROUND: WR Golden Tate or WR Arrelious Benn
    SECOND ROUND: CB Donovan Warren or CB Crezdon Butler.
    -------




    Go Celtics
    Go Irish
    Go Ravens

    I would love Benn, Tate, or even LaFell in the first round. I love this years WR depth in the draft.

      There's a lot of players that I would like in the first round. Bryant, Benn, Williams, LaFell, Tate, and Gresham are the offensive weapons that would fit here. The second round is a bit harder to project at this point, but perhaps a TE or WR (whichever way we don't go in the first assuming we do go for an offensive player), CB, UT, 5-technique, and perhaps a safety. We don't know what Reed's going to do (I think he's not going to retire) and Landry is a FA after this season (or RFA, not sure with the uncapped situation). Zbi has shown promise but if both Reed and Landry are gone I think safety becomes a big need. I wouldn't trust Haruki to start and we would need the depth anyways.

        Rd 1: Dez Bryant
        Rd 2: Mardy Gilyard


        I know this is crazy but we need a future at the WR position and as of right now we have zero WR's under contract for next year.

        Now with that said we badly need a DLineman who can get consistent pressure on the QB, and we need a solid CB. We also need a RG but thats a need to be addressed in free agency or later in the draft.

          I would have no problem taking two WR's in the first round, cause like you said, we have no future there but there is no way Dez Bryant falls to us. He'll go top 10, top 15 at worst.

          But I would love to take Golden Tate or Benn in the first, then take Gilyard in the second, but I can't see Ozzie doing it. Even though he's all about helping Joe Flacco, he fails to realize that Joe needs good weapons just as much as he needs a good o-line.

          It's interesting though, when you think about it, our WR corp could look totally different come next year, expect to see Malcom Floyd in a Raven's uni next year. We probably can't afford Vincent Jackson, so I think Cameron would love Floyd. At 6-5, I would love to see Flacco just lobbin it up to him. Either way, we are defenetily going to revamp the position, because they are really holding Joe Flacco's development back.

            Yeah I know Dez will be gone but I'm still gonna hold out hope until he goes on draft day. As for Malcolm Floyd I like it, and if by some miracle the Raiders let him go I'd take a very hard look at Chaz Schilens, but I think he is RFA so he wont be going anywhere.

              true, I love Schilens. It's hard to perform that well for a team like the Raiders, imagine how good he' be for the Ravens. A classier organization w/ better coaching and a much better QB throwing him the ball.

                Off topic, but I heard there were some rumors that the Bills were interested in Cameron (link below). I would be very happy if they were to take Cameron away. Maybe he would take Mattison with him...

                  Yeah I'd absolutely love a lower tier FA signing such as a Malcolm Floyd. Who knows what the future holds for Mason/Clayton/Washington (at least as Ravens), but WR is undoubtedly our biggest need. With Foxworth's play improving towards the end of this year, and the emergence of Webb (albeit his status for next year could be up in the air), it looks like we're set at least starter wise.

                  Ideally (and realistically), I'd go for a guy such as a Malcolm Floyd or Antonio Bryant, and then go for a guy like Lafell in the first round.

                    would and should we entertain the thought of trading for Brandon Marshall? I mean if we could get him for a 2nd rd or a 3rd rd pick and draft a CB in the 1st or a DB in general.

                    I would love to see someone like Marshall in a offense that is a bit more wide open then in Denver and have Mason as the #2 Clayton is not consistent enough for me.

                      I doubt we'd get Marshall for a 2nd or a 3rd. More like a 1st and 2nd IMO.

                        I don't see anyone giving up a 1st and a 2nd for him. A 1st and 3rd maybe but I still think with all his ******** he will go for less.

                        We as Ravens fans are clearly scum of the earth, and should just be happy that these great people, who cheer for nothing than the finest, morally impeccable players, playing on the finest, most morally impeccable teams, will grace us with their presence, and words of wisdom.

                          I really doubt that our team will go after Marshall (especially in a trade involving a first round draft pick). Should we? Absolutely, but it doesn't go along with what we've been doing.

                          However, this could change if Ozzie leaves. Their current AD might not be there much longer at it would be a prime opportunity for Newsome to go back to Alabama. I'm not hoping for this move, but we have a guy that is nearly ready (if he isn't already) to step into his role. DeCosta turned down an interview with SEA to become their next GM today so I think he really wants to stay with the organization.

                            Taking WR's in the first two rounds is not a good idea at all. Although Clayton and Mason are most likely gone, you will still have DWill and Kelley Washington. The FO will sign a WR for sure (Jason Avant or Floyd hopefully) and realistically could make a trade (Boldin or Marshall hopefully).

                            How do you figure we need a RG at all? Grubbs is a pro bowler on the left side and since Yanda has stepped in at RG he has performed as good as ANYONE in the League. They need to get him signed long term. And although I dont want to see Chester start, he still provides good depth.

                              Actually we might not still have D-Will and Washington. Both are also UFA after this season (not sure how the uncapped year affects that though). Besides, we can't really rely on either of them anyways. Williams has been our best receiver at getting separation when he's in, but it hasn't translated into a whole lot of production. Washington has been pretty good at getting first downs, but Flacco doesn't seem to look his way often (nor do we use many 3 WR sets). I expect both of them back (at least Washington), but it doesn't make me feel any better about our WR situation.
