RealRavensFan Dream Draft (Realistic)

The more I look at the draft, I could see us trading #17 to Cleveland for their #26 pick plus their 3rd.

1st round: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, FSU-Kelvin is an imposing receiver who high points the ball & makes plays after the catch. He's also a very underrated blocker. People knock his speed, but anybody who tried to cover him last year will tell you that he's plenty fast enough.

2nd round: Stephon Tuitt, DL, Notre Dame-Stephon would have been a top 20 pick last season, but his stats were down this year, which dropped his stock. He's a stud who can play all 3 positions on the line, and can be an anchor here with Brandon Williams for years after Haloti rides off into the sunset.

3rd round: Keith McGill, CB, Utah-Keith is a fluid athlete for a player his size, and he plays with technique to blanket receivers. He would make our secondary look a lot more Seattle-ish, which is a damn good thing.

3rd round (comp): Ed Reynolds, FS, Stanford-Ed is an instinctive, smart, disciplined playmaker at free safety. He can track the ball and he knows what to do with it. Great centerfielder for us.

3rd round (comp): Brandon Coleman, WR, Rutgers-Brandon is a big target who has sneaky athleticism. He's also a Maryland kid who would fit in here really well.

4th round (comp): Kevin Pierre-Louis, LB, Boston College-KPL is a specimen who flies to the ball & can cover like no other. He would make a nasty tandem with Arthur Brown after Daryl Smith retires, while boosting our special teams unit immediately.

4th round (comp): Seantrel Henderson, OT, Miami-Work ethic concerns cost him his job this past season, but he's still the former #1 OL prospect coming out of high school. He has all the ability in the world, he just needs a strong team to help him realize it all.

5th round (comp): A.C. Leonard, TE, Tennessee State-A.C. is a 6'2, 252 pound TE with 4.4 speed, solid hands & elusiveness. He reminds me of a mix between Vernon Davis & Delanie Walker.

6th round (comp): James Wilder Jr, RB, FSU-James runs with tenacity & fights for every yard. His energy is contagious & the kid works hard. At 6'3, 232 he could be a big time short yardage back who steals carries before we know it.

So, in this draft we get 2 towering WRs, a stud DL who will make the loss of Arthur Jones more minuscule, a RT who could start day 1, an athletic linebacker who can learn our system while playing special teams, a playmaking free safety, a big corner who can play top flight man-to-man, an athletic freak of a TE, and a running back who punishes defenders. I'll take this draft to go, Mr. Goodell.
