Latest Mock Draft From SB Nation

New, comments

Over at SBNation.com, they've done just one more updated Mock Draft for the first round of April's NFL Draft. Now they have Auburn QB Cam Newton going first overall t the Carolina Panthers. Anybody want to join me in a "pity-party" for Panthers QB Jimmy Clausen, who has been barely mentioned as an option for Carolina?

Overall, it's a solid Mock Draft in my opinion, as the better guys go to the teams that could definitely use them, with really none of those head-scratching picks that the real draft always seems to have. SB Nation made the pick, 26th overall, for the Baltimore Ravens and I applaud their selection.

They project the Ravens to pick Wisconsin offensive tackle Gabe Carimi as their choice to either step right in at right tackle or perhaps even earn his way there by starting at right guard and then ultimately switching with current Raven Marshal Yanda once he gets enough experience and the confidence of the coaching staff. Here is what SB Nation's Brian Galliford wrote abut Carimi:

26. Baltimore Ravens: Gabe Carimi, OT, Wisconsin. Jared Gaither's future is in doubt, and though the Ravens found respectable play at right tackle last year, a true bookend to Michael Oher would be a good idea.

Regardless of what positions you may think the team needs, offensive line is definitely one of them and the Ravens could not go wrong with the selection of Carimi, who is ranked among the best offensive linemen in this year's draft class.
