Thursday Ravens links: James Hurst's chances, C.J. Mosley hopes to sack Johnny Football again

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Read what others around the web are saying about the Baltimore Ravens.

Recently signed offensive tackle James Hurst, who went undrafted last weekend, is looking to make a name for himself in the NFL following a gruesome injury during North Carolina's bowl game.

As a result, Hurst, who broke his leg, was unable to participate in the Senior Bowl or the NFL combine, dropping him from being a draft pick to the undrafted ranks. With the Ravens signing him, and with an opening at the right tackle position, Hurst could ultimately pay dividends for the Ravens, writes The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson.

"Obviously, this is a great opportunity," Hurst told The Sun. "Not being drafted was a disappointment, but signing with a great organization is very exciting. It's all new and I'm learning a lot. It's pretty awesome."

A lot of hoopla was made over the Cleveland Browns taking Johnny Manziel with the 22nd overall pick.

And now the Ravens will have to see him twice a year for the foreseeable future. This isn't new for Ravens rookie C.J. Mosley, who played against Manziel the past two years in college. Tough to defend, Mosley was able to sack Manziel. Now that they'll be division foes, BaltimoreRavens.com's Ryan Mink writes that he'll be looking to do that more often at the next level.

With Texans receiver Andre Johnson indicating his unhappiness in Houston, Purple Reign Show's Rob Michels wonders if he'd be a fit in Baltimore, reuniting with offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak.
