The Baltimore Ravens drafted eight players in the 2011 NFL Draft, completed late last month. Here is a video with some footage of each draft pick, from the team's first round selection, CB Jimmy Smith (Colorado) through seventh round pick, RB Anthony Allen (Georgia Tech). In between, you will see clips of WR Torrey Smith (Maryland), OT Jah Reid (Central Florida), WR Tandon Doss (Indiana), CB Chykie Brown (Texas), DL Pernell McPhee (Mississippi State) and QB Tyrod Taylor (Virginia Tech).
Looking at the player's collegiate highlights, it gives you the feeling that General Manager Ozzie Newsome and his supporting team of Director of Player Personnel Eric DeCosta and Director of Scouting Joe Hortiz, did their collective homework and brought in a solid group of players to help fill the holes that have prevented the Ravens from getting to the next level.
If the labor dispute ever gets settled, all Ravens fans should be stoked to see what these kids can contribute and if they live anywhere up to their expectations, Baltimore fans should plan on being very busy watching football in February of next year.
