    It gives the Ravens some needed flexibility to go after BPA while at the same time filling a need. There are decent options in each of the first four rounds for plug-in players.

    From what I've read a lot of teams will only draft draftable players.

    Then you didn't read the mock draft to which I was referring.

    What about Jermon Bushrod? He's somewhat a "local" guy and was pretty good for Brees last year if I remember correctly.

    He did.

    He's a pretty classic case of a LT who is made to look a lot better than he is due to the QB moving in the pocket and getting rid of the ball quick.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    Re: New draft/FA/offseason thread

    I'd take McKinnie over Bushrod.

    Right now the players I want from the first three rounds:
    Kevin Minter
    Brandon Williams
    Chris Faulk (IF Reed is re-signed, if not, then I'd like Rambo)

    Eric Reid is also someone I'd like in the second round, not sure out of him an Rambo. I like Philip Thomas too. Of course I'd love Matt Elam in the second round, but I just don't see him sticking around that long.

    Rambo is interesting, but the dude had a pretty rough outing during the Senior Bowl. Was caught out of position several times and looked slow.

    I think I would rather Phillip Thomas out of Fresno State, Brandon Bishop out of NC State, or JJ wilcox out of Georgia Southern.

    Taking a guy like Amerson and moving him back to safety could also work nicely.

    Bishop was once of the first DBs I watched film on, and 4 months later, he's still the biggest thumper I've seen this year. He also has great instincts.

    This. Boldin does not get separation and when he is on the outside he is always covered which is why he needs to make circus catches. The Ravens really need to get a receiver on the outside so that Boldin can continue to work the middle of the field where he can get open. If the Ravens bring Boldin back they really need to work out of three wr sets more.

    Been watching coaches film on John Youboty DE/OLB out of Temple. 6'4 258 with a solid build. Moves well laterally. Seems to locate the ball well. Pursues down the line very well and generally pursues the ball to the whistle. His effort at 21:03 is outstanding. We need to get faster on defense and this cat has speed.

    Can be a bit undisciplined at times vs. the run...like DEs and OLBs can be, but I think with some coaching + 10 lbs + a pro training regimen, this cat could be a solid pro.

    Not a fan of Bishop.

    IMHO...we need someone faster that will cover a lot of ground...we already have a thumper in Pollard.
