It's unlikely Arthur Jones will be with the Ravens in 2013.

He's set to hit the free agent market and very well could command a hefty salary. The Ravens may decide to part ways and look for a replacement early in the draft.

That's where Notre Dame's Stephon Tuitt comes into play. A junior that declared early, Tuitt is a prototypical defensive end in a 3-4 defense at 6-6, 330 pounds. He can get after the passer as he has a quick burst off the line of scrimmage.

Tuitt has slipped down some mock drafts and could very well be a steal in the second round. With the Ravens projected to draft on the offensive side of the ball, the organization may not be able to pass Tuitt up if he's available.

Here's a highlight clip of his:
