Like many of the SB team sites, we at Stampede Blue are conducting a community mock draft and I selected the Ravens as the team I would like to represent in the draft. Let me say first that your GM is a freakin' genius! Boldin (and a 5th) for a 3rd and 4th? WOW!!! Jerry Jones must be throwing up somewhere!
There are ten picks left until I select for the Ravens and I wanted some good Raven-fan info...
So you have addressed your biggest need with a big aquisition! Boldin will be huge! And you re-signed Mason.
You recently signed Redding, who, I assume, will play at DE. And that does help your DL.
This is what I see as needs (and please comment and correct me where I may be wrong): These are in no particular order.
1. Cornerback - you are covered at safety until Reed hangs it up. But CB has been a problem since McCalister lost a his speed and was released.
2. DLine - Redding, Pryce, and Greg are getting up there. Replacements should be found soon to learn from these guys.
3. LB - Lewis is 85, but still plays like he is 30. He can't play forever. I would imagine this is a depth situation here. Get a couple of guys to back up Lewis and Suggs!
4. OLine - With Gaither (who I wish Polian would have gone after), Oher and company you seem set.
5. QB - DUH!
6. RB - DUH!
7. WR - Depth would not hurt
8. TE - I like Heap, but he never seemed to break into the next level (too many injuries?)
So I am thinking this draft should go after CB, DL, and TE.
With the first pick I am thinking about Kyle Wilson, Devin McCourty, Jermain Gresham, or Carlos Dunlap.
With the second pick (obviously depending on the first) I am thinking Aaron Hernandez, Kareem Jackson, Parrish Cox, Geno Atkins, or Cam Thomas.
I am including a poll for those who don't care to comment. Thanks again. And Congrats on a great off-season!
