Oher Arrives in Baltimore

New, comments

The Ravens first round pick has officially arrived in Baltimore today. Sporting a very slick baby blue plaid blazer, Oher will be part of an introduction press conference held at 2pm today.

Other Notes

  • Special Teams coach, Jerry Rosburg is very excited about what our 3rd round selection, Ladarius Webb, brings to special teams. Webb was a special teams stand out at Nicholls State. He is such an insane athlete which made him the first player in NCAA history to win his conference's offensive, defensive and special teams player of the week awards during his junior year.
  • Kruger could have been a first round pick. While we moved up in the 1st round to draft Michael Oher yesterday, Ozzie and Eric also talked in the draft room about moving down from 26 to acquire an extra pick today. Among the group of players the Ravens’ brain trust was considering if they moved back in the 1st round was Paul Kruger. Of course, Ozzie later tabbed Kruger with our 2nd-round pick. Good fortune for us. Kruger’s name card has a red star on it. Those players with red stars are special. Each of the Ravens’ scouts gets to place a red star on the card of the player he believes would best personify what a Ravens’ player should be. Along with the athletic ability, players given red stars are also passionate about the game, dedicated to getting better, fearless on the field, have outstanding character and have high intelligence.
     
  • Ravens trade 4th and 6th round picks for two 5th round picks from the Patriots that were acquired in a trade with Ellis Hobbs to Philadelphia.
