If I were the Ravens, setting up my board, I'd probaboly have Tavon 4th, after the LT's and before Vaccarro, Lotuleilei and Floyd. after that, I'd probably start looking at passrushers, TE's, and other WR's like Patterson and Hopkins.
And huh? HOw is LT less of a need then OT was when Oher was picked? Our only NFL level OT is in the last yearof his deal(assuming KO is a guard).
LT, right now, is as big of a need as I can remember entering the draft with in recent times, perhaps since Flacco, and maybe CB the year we ended up trading for Josh Wilson after not drafting one at all.
I do think they'll pick up a tackle, and they have options already. It won't be done by paying the price it would take to go to the top of the first for a freaking offensive lineman...no way
The cost to go from 32 to 6 would be.... enormous. Anyone want to calculate that out? This years 1st, probably next years 1st, maybe this years 2nd as well. I'm probably all wrong, but it'll take a bounty.
Remember everyone, this is just Preston's baseless speculation, er, opinion, which is what he's being paid the big bucks for!
Preston wins again. Total BS and we respond with 46 posts (and counting).
Folks, I just received word from a source moderately close to Steve Bisciotti's cleaning lady that if the Ravens opt not to trade up or down they will likely target one of the top rated players available with the 32nd pick.

Definitely enormous. And that is why there is no way in hell it happens. No. Way. In. Hell.
