Ravens Draft Tracker: Ronnell Lewis

Ronnell Lewis #56 Oaklahoma. OLB/DE 6'2" 224lbs

You can never have enough pass rushers. That's what Ozzie Newsome had to say when asked if the Ravens would be bringing in anyone to help Terrell Suggs at rushing the quarterback.

The Ravens do have some young pass rushers that have stepped up this past season. Paul Kruger and Pernell McPhee applied a good amount of pressure in 2011. These two plus Haloti Ngata and Cory Redding combined did manage to help Suggs when he was being double teamed or chipped by a tight end.

Would the Ravens entertain the idea of bringing in another pass rusher with the first pick in the draft? Why not? Their mantra has always been "best player available". So If OLB/DE Ronnell Lewis were to slip to the 29th spot, would the Ravens be interested? We will have to wait to find out.
