And with the 32nd pick in the NFL draft, the Ravens select... No One

What happens if Ozzie decides not to use the 32nd pick in the 1st round of the draft? Picture Ozzie letting the time expire on the clock. The draft is over for that day, and the second round of the draft does not begin until the next day. The 32nd selection of the 1st round would then go to the Kansas City Chiefs. The real questionis, does the 1st selection of the 2nd round go to the Ravens? Its possible but not probable but, this is my arguement. I find two explanations for why Ozzie does not pull the trigger with the 32nd pick. #1. No one will trade with us. I highly doubt that many NFL front offices enjoy trading draft picks with the Ravens (i.e.: no one wants to help us drop back in the draft anymore.) When is the last time an opposing team has been put in a better situation by trading draft picks with the Ravens? Anyone remember the Haloti Ngata swap with Cleveland? The Broncos swap for Tim Tebow? The Flacco selection? The Ravens front office makes other NFL teams’ front offices’ look embarrassingly stupid. (I’d like to know how many times the Ravens draft strategy has indirectly gotten another teams coach or GM fired!) #2. Right player for the right price. Does anyone seriously think that a 32nd draft pick of the 1st round is worth 1st round money? I don’t. They’re worth 2nd round money. Ozzie knows it too. There you have it. A draft move that is crazy enough to make sense, and also benefit the Ravens pocket book. Let the discussion begin… World Champions!!!
