Could Minnesota defensive lineman Ra'Shede Hageman be of interest to the Ravens? - Joe Robbins

Read what others on the web are writing about the Ravens.

At some point the Ravens will have to figure out what to do at the three-technique spot on the defensive line.

With Arthur Jones gone to Indianapolis, the Ravens could look internally to fill the position. But as The Carroll County Times' Matt Zenitz writes, there is some interest within the franchise to draft a defensive lineman this weekend.

Zenitz lists two potential fits for the Ravens, one of which is a first-round prospect and the other is a second-rounder.

At 17th overall, there are plenty of factors that could affect how the Ravens draft.

Part of that could be whether runs start developing at certain positions. Some pundits are projecting as many as eight receivers to be selected in the first round. In addition, there could either be an early run on quarterbacks or a situation where teams hold off.

CSNBaltimore.com's Clifton Brown addresses this and more as he lists five developments that could affect the Ravens during the draft.
