On Thanksgiving night later this year, the Baltimore Ravens are scheduled to host the San Francisco 49ers, coached by Ravens head coach John Harbaugh's brother, Jim. Hopefully, that game will go off as planned, as the current labor dispute might be going on long enough to delay or even shift the schedule in some way.
SB Nation's blog on the San Francisco 49ers, Niners Nation, broke down the Ravens 2011 Draft class round-by- round, grading each player that Baltimore selected. They did an admirable job for a team from the left coast, and when they come here later this fall, they will be facing these guys who should have a decent number of games under their belts which should help determine how successful they will be in the NFL.
Niners Nation gave the Ravens a solid grade overall, with most of their picks falling into the "A" category. Props to their breakdown and narrative on each player, as if these rookies end up producing according to these grades, the Ravens and their fans will be very happy, although our opponents might not.
