Mock Draft 4.0- Tight End

I did not go with a RT in this draft for two reasons. One, I think we would be reaching in every round for a tackle and two, I really think that the Ravens will address Eric Winston after the draft like they did with Daryl Smith and sign him to a similar deal. Would be very happy if this draft panned out! Let me know what you guys think!

1st Round (Pick 17): Eric Ebron TE (UNC)

Eric Ebron is the Jimmy Graham type of tight end that the NFL is transitioning to. With Owen Daniels on a one-year contract he can mentor and teach Ebron how to work in Kubiak’s scheme and then the Ravens have the best 1-2 punch at tight end for the future.

2nd Round (Pick 48): Jordan Mathews WR (Vanderbilt)

Flacco should be salivating after these first two picks. Mathews would be a first round selection in any other year but due to the depth of this class he drop to the second round and becomes and instant starter for the Ravens across from Torrey.

3rd Round (Pick 79): DaQuan Jones DT (Penn State)

Having Ngata decline a long-term extension is a bit concerning but I think he is thinking about retirement after his contract but who knows? Jones could learn from Ngata for the remainder of his contract and be very good next to Williams.

3rd Round (Compensatory Pick 99): Terrance West RB (Towson)

Terrance West is driving up draft boards and the local product has worked out a couple times for the Ravens and they really seem to like him. West can step in for Rice if he is suspended. West was under the radar for a while but after people saw his stats the small school prospect is being recognized.

4th Round (Compensatory Pick 134): Kenny Ladler FS (Vanderbilt)

Really like Ladler at this pick. He provides what is needed for a Free Safety next to Elam. Really hope that this pick can come through.

4th Round (Compensatory Pick 138): Antone Exum CB/S (Virginia Tech)

This guy makes too much sense not to pick him. Exum was a stellar cornerback at Virginia Tech but was originally a free safety. He fills two positions that are of need in one player. Like Charles Godfrey he can make the transition back to free safety if need be, biggest sleeper of the draft.

5th Round (Compensatory Pick 175): Logan Thomas QB (Virginia Tech)

Ozzie likes his athletic backup QBs but Thomas is so much more than that. Thomas brings in maybe the strongest arm in the class, perfect to complement Flacco’s deep ball game. Quality back up to push Tyrod out.

6th Round (Pick 194): Trai Turner OG (LSU)

A guard project that has the ability to replace Yanda in a few years while the coaches grooms him up.
