Ravens Dream Draft 3.0 (Post Free Agency)

This is my 3rd installment of the Dream Draft Series, post free agency. Ozzie has worked wonders, like I knew he would, so this is what I think we should do, considering what's happened this offseason. 1st round (trade back for an additional 4th round pick): Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State - with Steve Smith and Jacoby Jones back in the fold for 2014, our need for a shifty slot receiver/return man isn't as pressing an issue, so I go with KB here. With his height, strength, and playmaking ability, he could be a monster for us, especially if he gains a mean streak from Steve Smith. Ice up, son. 2nd round: Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington - He's a good blocker & a big red zone target for Flacco. Pitta & ASJ would be a good combo at TE for years to come. 3rd round: Stanley Jean-Baptiste, CB/S, Nebraska - Stanley is a good prospect at CB, but with only a few years experience there, paired with his playing style & the fact that he has more experience at safety, I'm picking him here to be our FS. On downs where we have to cover tight ends with our safety, he can be a big help here at 6'3, 215. Great hands and is a willing hitter, too. 3rd round (comp): Cyril Richardson, OG, Baylor - Richardson is a great pick up here, as he whold help us with being a bigger front seven. Keleche Osemele is coming off of a back injury, and his athleticism would be a better help at RT anyway. 4th round (comp): Dri Archer, WR/RS, Kent State - even with Steve Smith & Jacoby Jones on the roster, they're not spring chickens, so Dri should still be the pick here. He could learn under Smith at the slot & could also pick Jacoby's brain as a returner. We'd get a 2 for 1 here. 4th round (comp): Terrence West, RB, Towson - West would be a big help with our struggling red zone ground game. With Pierce & Ray Rice coming off of injury-riddled, porous seasons, he should see significant carries. 5th round (comp): Brent Urban, DL, Virginia - if he actually makes it to the 5th round, he would be an absolute steal. Tall, strong, athletic lineman who can rush the passer & play the run. He reminds me of a poor man's JJ Watt, which isn't a bad thing. 6th round (comp): Andrew Jackson, LB, WKU - I've been pushing for this kid to be a Raven for a while now. He's 6'1, 260 & is a dog. Watch his tape. There's my Dream Draft, tell me what you guys (or gals) think in the comments section.
