2011 NFL Draft Over: Now What?

The final pick was made yesterday evening by the Baltimore Ravens in the 2011 NFL Draft, and now they will just have to sit tight until the federal judge either overturns the "stay" to end the Lockout or the NFL owners and players agree on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

In the meantime, the team has targeted which undrafted free agents they will contact to try to get them signed to contracts to try out for the team whenever Training Camp ends up being scheduled to begin, hopefully later this summer. At the same time, they are strategizing the veteran free agents that they currently are unable to contact nor sign, in order to fill out whatever roster holes remain in the minds.

For now the Ravens will let others be the judge and jury on how well the team did with their eight picks over the past three days. For the most part, the true value of these picks might not be fully known for years, although the team and most fans expect the first two picks, Jimmy and Torrey Smith, to pay instant dividends as soon as the 2011 NFL season begins.

We will grade the entire draft of the Ravens as well as their AFC North division rivals shortly. Stay tuned.
