For quite some time, it's been assumed the Ravens won't have a chance to land North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron withh the 17th overall pick int he first round.

But evidently there's a chance it could happen after all. Recently, ESPN's Mel Kiper said that if Ebron gets past the Giants at pick No. 12, there's a good chance he'll continue to slide to 17. That would be big news for the Ravens if it happens.

CSNBaltimore.com's Clifton Brown writes that while tight end is no longer a necessity at this point, drafting Ebron in the first round could be worthwhile if the organization believes he can be a long-term standout at the position.

Not a lot of people have mentioned former Missouri defensive end Kony Ealy as a potential pick for the Ravens. Given he could potentially be moved to outside linebacker in a 3-4, that's not a position the Ravens need to address with a first-round pick.

But Russell Street Report's Mike Fast makes the case that if Ealy's available, the Ravens should take him, stating he'd be the best player available, most likely, at 17th overall.
