My Opinion On The Ravens And Who They Should Have Drafted

Okay first, I'm having a very boring day today, so this probably has no purpose. I will look at every pick and see if I agree with their picks.

Round 1: Matt Elam, S, Florida. I agree with this pick as it presents value and fills a need.

Round 2: Arthur Brown, ILB, Kansas State. I absolutely love this pick and it will be a steal if he pans out like he's supposed to.

Round 3: Brandon Williams, DT, Missouri Southern. I agree mostly with this pick and I could hardly make an argument about anybody else.

Round 4: John Simon, DE-OLB, Ohio State. My first disagreement is here. I think we are fine at OLB with Upshaw, Doom, and T-Sizzle

My pick: Jesse Williams DT, Alabama. We already have Brandon Williams, but I love the value here. Imagine a NT combination of Cody, Williams, and ... Williams.

Round 4 comp: Kyle Juszczyk, FB, Harvard: I agree with this pick as we have our Vonta Leach replacement (hopefully) and if Leach got waived for some reason (hopefully not) then he could probably start right away.

Round 5 comp : Ricky Wagner, OL, Wisconsin. As Mel Kiper pointed out, we could have taken someone who had a chance at developing into a left tackle rather than take someone who is at best a Right Tackle.

My pick: Xavier Nixon OT, Florida. I think he has a chance at left tackle and I think he would be better than Wagner.

Round 6: Kapron Lewis-Moore, DE, Notre Dame. I agree with this pick because he can be a good D-Linemen when healthy and he can take his time to get healthy because we have depth.

Round 6 comp: Ryan Jensen, OT, Colorado State Pueblo. I think if we were supposed to draft a center here, we could have done better.

My pick: Braxston Cave, C, Notre Dame. I think he would be a better center than Jensen. Case closed.

Round 7: Aaron Mellette, WR, Elon. I like this pick, but I think we could have done better.

My pick: Da'Rick Rogers, WR, Tennessee Tech. Come on man. This guy is talented, but he has off-the-field issues. But who cares in the 7th round when you have a 2nd round talent. If he is a problem, you can waive him, no harm done. If he doesn't, he is the best steal in the draft.

Round 7: Marc Anthony, CB, California. I like the value here and I will agree with this pick, as tempted as I am to put Ray-Ray Armstrong here, but I hope we are set at safety with Elam and Christain Thompson.

Now I have agreed with 6 and disagreed with 4. That is very good as I usually have an objection to about every pick.
