Quality Players for Baltimore Ravens Remain for NFL Draft 2nd Round

While a bunch of fans were greatly disappointed that the Baltimore Ravens chose to accumulate additional draft picks by trading back from the 1st round of the 2010 NFL Draft, team GM Ozzie Newsome pulled off a super deal for the pick-starved team. Sitting with two 2nd round picks as well as a third rounder in this second day of the draft, the Ravens will have some tough choices on a bunch of quality prospects still remaining on their Board.

Had they taken a pick in the first round, the guy they wanted was there and was eventually taken by one of the teams drafting after them. However, Ozzie refused to mention who that player was when I questioned him at the team's press conference once the first round was completed.

So whom do the Ravens target and will they actually make a selection today or even consider trading back again in what many have said is the deepest draft class in years?

Click on the 'Jump' to see the list of quality players ranked by's Gil ('The Godfather') Brandt, former GM of the Dallas Cowboys, still remaining on the board.

Brandt ranks the players remaining on his board as the best available, although we all know that there is no guanrantee that our GM agrees with Gil's board. Tell me whom you want as the Ravens have two picks in the 2nd round, the 11th (43rd overall) and the 25th (57th overall) , plus the 6th pick in the 3rd round (70th overall). 

Jimmy Claussen, QB-Notre Dame

Sergio Kindle, DE/OLB-Texas

Carlos Dunlap, DE-Florida

Colt McCoy, QB-Texas

Roger Saffold, LT-Indiana

Charles Brown, OT-USC

Everson Griffen, DE-USC

Linval Joseph, DE-East Carolina

Taylor Mays, S-USC

Brian Price, DE-UCLA

Brandt also lists guys not in his Top Five "Tiers," but still in his Top 100, including many players Ravens fans would love to see in purple next season. They include Arrelious Benn (WR-Illinois), Bruce Campbell (LT-Maryland), Eric Decker (WR-Indiana), Sean Lee (LB-Penn St.), Tony Moaki (TE-Iowa), Brandon Spikes (LB-Florida), Aaron Hernandez (TE-Florida), Alex Carrington (DE-Arkansas State), Chris Cook (CB-Virginia) and Toby Gerhart (RB-Stanford) among others.

According to MASN, there remains a chance that the Ravens may yet trade back even further!
