I was very content with the Ravens first pick of Florida safety Matt Elam, it addresses a glaring hole on the defense at a position that is not very deep in this draft. The good news for Baltimore is that there are still a ton talented players at their next two positions of need. Only one ILB (Alec Ogletree) was selected in the first round, which means that a number of talented linebackers remain on the board. There is very good chance that either Arthur Brown, Manti Te'o, or Kevin Minter will still be available when the Ravens are on the clock, unless Ozzie decides to move up (which is a very likely scenario as he still has 11 picks in this draft to make deals with) for a particular player that he has his eye on. The wide receiver class this year is also very deep. USC's Robert Woods, Tennessee's Justin Hunter, Cal's Keenan Allen, as well as Tennessee Tech's Da'Rick Rogers are all still available and all possess borderline first round talent. A sleeper at the position could be Texas A&M's Ryan Swope, who had an incredible combine workout that included a 4.34 40-yard dash. Swope is built somewhat like a running back and has exceptional run-after-catch ability. The bottom line is that Ravens have a ton of options entering the 2nd round of the draft and it could be a very interesting second day for Baltimore fans.
Ravens' Round 2 Plans: WR or LB?
The Ravens addressed their need at safety on the first day of the draft, but what holes will they look to fill in round 2?
