Stick here with Baltimore Beatdown all evening long as you watch the Baltimore Ravens make their moves and selections in the 2011 NFL Draft's 2nd and 3rd rounds. The final four rounds will begin on Saturday afternoon, but the real value in this draft should come off the board tonight.
Baltimore currently has the 58th and 90th overall picks, but we say currently as the possibility always remains that the team might trade up or drop back depending of what player(s) are still there as their turn approaches. Last night included a bizarre chain of events that finally led to the Ravens selecting Colorado CB Jimmy Smith with the 27th, not the original 26th pick in the first round.
We'll post the actual pick of the Ravens as soon as they make it but the 'Open Thread' will serve as your forum to voice your opinions as the other teams pick in advance and after the Ravens make their selections.
