Some time ago I wrote here asking for help. I'm a Cardinals fan on the Cardinals SB Nation blog, Revenge of the Birds(ROTB), and I chose to pick for the Baltimore Ravens, all of yours's team, in the mock draft that was announced by our head blogger. Well, my turn finally came back, and using the help I got from you guys, I chose Jared Odrick for the Baltimore Ravens. Here's what was said by our head blogger, who's running the whole Mock Draft, about the choice of choosing Jared Odrick.
Strengths:Odrick has tremendous power and strength and a good motor to go with it. When he is on his game, he is unblockable. Several teams tried to contain him with double teams all year long with little or no effect. He loves to initiate contact and uses his hands well to fight off the blocker and gain leverage. There's a reason why Jared Odrick is listed as most experts as a first round draft pick. I won't say he's as good as Ndamukong Suh, but he's in that category.
Weaknesses: He may be a bit on the small side to play the middle in the league which leads many to believe he would be a perfect fit at defensive end in a 3-4 scheme, but he may lack the explosiveness to be an effective pass rusher off the edge. There were a few plays or a few games here and there where he looked like he didn't give everything he had. When he gets tired he tends to play a little too upright. But those moments were few and far between and I can't be certain there weren't outside factors like injuries or illness to blame.
Why the Ravens will draft him: Baltimore filled their need at WR when they traded for Anquan Boldin and signed Donte Stallworth this offseason. They're set at quarterback and running back. The defense is a top ten defense but could use some help along the line. Odrick can line up at end or tackle and brings them a versatile pass rusher that can also stop the run.
Thanks for all the help! I'm glad I could choose for your team. Thanks, and good luck!
