Rock Out With Your Mock Out

There are so many mock drafts going on around the internet, and many of them offer different insights into what direction Baltimore will be going in come the April draft. So lets take a look at some of the mock draft that have been floating around lately.

Walter Football

1.
Baltimore Ravens: Titus Young, WR, Boise State

Wow. I can't remember how many times I said "wow" while watching Titus Young practice at the Senior Bowl. Young has DeSean Jackson's game-breaking speed and lateral quickness. He's also a very good route runner. The only knock on him is that he's about 170 pounds, but Jackson has been a pretty good commodity for the Eagles despite being that size.

After watching the Ravens lose to the Steelers, it's pretty obvious that Joe Flacco and Ray Rice need a downfield threat to stretch the defense. By drafting Young, Baltimore will have its own version of Mike Wallace.

2. Baltimore Ravens: Christian Ballard, DE/DT, Iowa

Christian Ballard is the best player available who makes sense for the Ravens. They need an upgrade over Cory Redding.

A look at a few more mocks after the jump.

3. Baltimore Ravens: Joseph Barksdale, OT, LSU

Jared Gaither can't get on the field because of back issues. Back problems seldom go away, so if Gaither continues to miss action, The Ravens will have to look at a right tackle early in the 2011 NFL Draft. If they draft Joseph Barksdale, I will buy a Baltimore-Barksdale jersey.

4. Baltimore Ravens: Kelvin Sheppard, ILB, LSU

The Ravens could stand to upgrade the middle of their defense. Remember, Ray Lewis will be 36 when the 2011 NFL Draft rolls around.

Draft Season

1. Torrey Smith WR, Maryland

The Ravens could use another receiver to go with Boldin, as Mason is always a threat to retire and TJ isn’t a lock to be on the team in 2011.  Smith is a speed demon with good hands and would be a fine compliment to Anquan.

2. Kendric Burney CB, UNC

The Ravens really need a good young corner and Burney’s stock is rising after a great Senior Bowl week.

New NFL Draft

1. Cameron Heyward DE Ohio St.

The Ravens get one of the best 3-4 defensive lineman in this 2011 NFL Mock Draft. They have their interior line position solidified so they bill on the defensive end position. Heyward had a great Sugar Bowl and he will help an already very good defense with this NFL Draft pick.

2. Titus Young WR Boise St.

Titus Young is a good WR and had a very good Senior Bowl showing that he has the speed and the hands to be good at the next level. He is being compared by a lot of people to Desean Jackson. So if he has the ability to even be close to Desean Jackson he will be a great rookie.

3. Jonathon Freeny DE/OLB Rutgers
