How far in the draft could the Ravens move up? or down?




I consulted the NFL trade value chart to see what they could do with their first four draft picks. Remember, compensation picks can not be traded.

Pick points:

1. 590

2. 270 (284?)

3. 116

4. 44

Technically, there is some wiggle room in the value of our second round pick since this year it is pick #62 instead of #64 (New Orleans and Cleveland lost picks for bountygate/Josh Gordon)

So here are some possibilities:

Trade 1 and 2 to move up to 19 - they would have to trade with the Giants. It would be to move ahead of the Bears. Chicago needs an ILB to replace Urlacher, is there someone here that the Ravens covet? I doubt it. I believe Te'o, MInter and Olgetree all fall into the 20s.

Trade 1, 2 and 3 to move up to 16 - they would have to trade with the Rams. It would be to move ahead of the Steelers which makes a lot of sense, but Ozzie has never given up so many picks to move halfway up in the draft. The only player I could see here would be Tavon Austin, but the Rams would probably draft him anyway since Sam Bradford needs help and they let two WRs go.

The only position I see the Ravens move up for would be LT if Lane Johnson falls to 15 or 16, but he is projected at top ten, and there is no way he gets past the Saints who lost Jermon Bushrod.

So in conclusion, It looks like we will probably hold on to 1 2 and 3 or perhaps trade down
