POLL RESULTS: Fans (barely) want the Ravens to trade back

Trading back just edged staying put in Monday's poll.

On Monday I asked the Baltimore Beatdown community what they preferred the Ravens to do: Stay put, trade back or trade up.

The results were pretty close between the two.

Only 14 percent (31 of the 214 votes) said the Ravens should trade up, making it a race between the other two options. And with 44 percent of the total (95 votes), trading back was the favorite. Staying put received 41 percent, which was 88 votes at the time of this post.

I think staying put or trading back would work. There's not really a wrong answer. Given that the Ravens don't have much to work with in terms of picks, trading up seems out of the question unless something bizarre happens and a player like Mike Evans is available in the 12-14 range.

With the draft deep at receiver and defensive line, the Ravens very well could trade back and grab a player at one of those positions. They could also draft safety Jimmie Ward, most likely, or even address the interior offensive line with a player such as UCLA's Xavier Su'a-Filo.

Plenty of options exist for the Ravens. And with the franchise's track record, they'll be just fine with whichever option they choose.
