With the 17th overall pick, the Ravens have plenty of directions to go in.

They could potentially address the need for a safety, wide receiver, tight end, defensive lineman or inside linebacker. Even cornerbacks Justin Gilbert and Darqueze Dennard wouldn't be out of the question.

Purple Reign Show's Tim Horsey breaks down all of the intriguing picks that could potentially happen once the Ravens are on the clock.


One of the top two safeties in this draft class is Louisville's Calvin Pryor, and for good reason.

Pryor's got a lot of range and speed in the back end, showcasing his abilities with the Cardinals this past season. Though he's not that tall at 5-11, he runs a 4.56 40-yard dash and has a penchant for tough tackling.

Baltimore Sports and Life's Matt Jergensen has a thorough breakdown of the safety prospect.


The Ravens have already brought on former Texans coaches Gary Kubiak, Rick Dennison and Brian Pariani, as well as tight end Owen Daniels and running back Justin Forsett.

Given the Ravens still have just under $7 million to spend for the 2014 season, this very well may not be the end, either.'s Bo Smolka wonders if the Ravens continue to bring in players with Kubiak ties from his head coaching days in Houston.
