The Ravens have the mindset of taking the best available player with each pick in each draft.
At 17th overall, that player just might be Alabama inside linebacker C.J. Mosley, who is being projected to go in the middle of the first round. One inside linebacker position is set with Daryl Smith. Josh Bynes figures to lead for the other other spot, with Arthur Brown giving him a run for it this preseason.
But the Ravens could add Mosley to the mix, to shake things up. There's some definite interest, as The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson reported that Mosley took a visit to the Ravens' facility this week.
