Fan Post mock draft after the Ravens signed Owen Daniels

Could Tyler Gaffney be an ideal running back in this draft class? - Jeff Gross

Round 1: HaHa Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama

With Matt Elam moving to SS and Dorian Stewart likely not a viable starter, Clinton-Dix is a great pick if he's still here. He's a free safety who should be ready to start day one.

Round 2: Cyrus Kouandjio, RT, Alabama

I know I'm gonna get a lot of crap for having two Bama players in this mock, but with Ozzie Newsome's connections, he should be able to get the full scoop on Kouandjio. I like Zack Martin but he will be off the board and I feel like free safety is a more dire need. Nevertheless, he should be an upgrade over Michael Oher and he and Rick Wagner can compete for the RT spot.

Round 3: EJ Gaines, CB, Missouri

With Corey Graham gone, Gaines is a great pick here to provide more CB depth. He can compete with Chykie Brown and Asa Jackson for the third CB spot

Round 3 (comp pick): Tajh Boyd, QB, Clemson

John Harbaugh already said he wants to bring someone in to compete with Tyrod Taylor for the backup QB position. Boyd is a guy who can develop under Flacco and be a dangerous backup in a few years.

Round 4 (comp pick): Bryan Stork, C, FSU

Jeremy Zuttah is a great pickup, and maybe Gino Gradkowski will actually develop. But if I learned anything about last year, it's you can't have too many big bodies.

Round 4 (comp pick): Tyler Gaffney, RB, Stanford

This kid is a total baller who provides size. The Ravens are constantly criticized for their lack of a goal line back, and Gaffney is a 220-pound back who gets a ton of yardage after contact. Injury and legal concerns have hampered the Ravens running attack and bringing in Gaffney would at least provide another adequate back to our backfield.

Round 5 (comp pick): Will Clarke, DE, West Virginia

With Arthur Jones gone to the Colts, Clarke can develop to help fill the void left. He likely won't see much playing time in his first year but he's worth developing.

Round 6: Caleb Lavey, ILB, Oklahoma State

This kid is a sleeper pick who is exceptional in pass protection, and with Jameel McClain gone he will provide ILB depth behind Brown, Smith and Bynes. He will be a kid worth taking a waiver on and developing.
