The Ravens secondary is considered to be a big need to address in this year draft and it has been plenty of mock drafts having The Ravens taking a cornerback/safety in the first round .I personally don't see the secondary as a major concern if players such as Chris Carr, Dawan Landry, and Josh Wilson are re-signed; The Ravens in my eyes don't need address the secondary right away in the draft but if they should select a player then I think it should be Virginia cornerback Ras-I Dowling.
Ras-I Dowling has good height (6'2" to be exact), good coverage skills, good speed to match against any wide reciver in the league, leadership, good character, keep the team first attitude, ability to play safety, and he can tackle. Ras-I Dowling could have easily been consider a first round talent in this year draft but injuries doing his senior year/combine has hurt his stock to being second/third rounder.
I recently saw a video of Ras-I Dowling speaking about his passion of football and etc; I must say that I was blown away because it was as if it was Ray Lewis speaking and the way he spoke on certain things it made me think that this guy has to be a Raven. Ras- I Dowling has the tools to be a shutdown cornerback and some teams may be afraid to take a risk on him because of the recent injuries he has been going through but it may be a blessing in disguise for him to land right into the hands of The Ravens.
