    Re: All Things Draft:



    Greg Cosell's take on the LB class (I will only include what he said about the ILBs/4-3 LBs that were covered in the video)

    Seems to like Arthur Brown, but who doesn't?

    Likes Alec Ogletree, and thinks he's the most pure athletic player in the LB class.

    Likes Kevin Minter even better, and thinks he isn't the most athletic of players, but thinks he's a good football player and a better football player than Ogletree.

    Likes Sio Moore, compares him to Lawrence Timmons, and thinks he could play as a ILB in a 3-4.

    Thinks Te'o is a good stack LB, but doesn't see him playing in sub packages. Says he isn't a special LB like many originally thought. From the tone of his voice, he didn't seem too impressed like he was for most of the other guys covered here.

    Re: All Things Draft:

    And just to update some of yall on visits, the Ravens have had Damontre Moore, and Tank Carradine in for visits/workouts lately. It would not surprise me at all if either were picked at 32 despite the fact that we have Dumervil, Sizzle, and Upshaw on the roster. The game is changing so much into a pass first league more and more every season now, the Ravens may be looking to copy the Seahawks here.

    The Ravens have also had David Bakhtiari in for a visit, who could be a decent option at guard, and possibly a future LT. The Ravens have been in contact with McKinnie's agent.

    That's why I'm not a fan of Te'o. With the emphasis in the passing game now and more teams running more spread and read/option offenses, you really need guys that can run and cover. For the LB's I like Brown, Ogletree and Minter.

    Absolutely, re: DE's, if they are BPA ar 32. Bakhtiari would be a nice day 2 pick also.

    Re: All Things Draft:

    In my simple mind, without any trades :
    (1) Eric Reid [Safety]
    (2) Terron Armstead [OT]
    (3) Kevin Reddick [ILB]
    (4) Da'Rick Rogers [WR]
    Is this possible where we pick? And if so, would you be satisfied with these choices? ... Bc

    I would take Elam, Swearinger or Cyprien over Reid becuase Reid is more of a centre field player (like Huff), whereas I think the other three names would compliment him better. My favorite of the bunch is Swearinger

    Re: All Things Draft:

    Greg Cosell agreeing with the Excellector about Kevin Minter? I'm not surprised. Great minds think alike.

    I would be happy with this. Armstead will most likely be a high-mid 2nd rounder so it is doubtful that he'll last to us. Reddick I'll bet we can get in round 4. Rogers might go in round 2, definitely in round 3. He wont last till the 4th. People are all over the map about Reid.

    I agree with ursula that flipping Rogers and Reddick is probably a more realistic scenario. if Armstead falls to around the 20th pick or so in the 2nd I'd strongly consider making a move up for him. He has all the tools to succeed at LT, although probably not in year 1, and that's worth shipping a 4th and 5th or so to move up 10 spots.

    Eric Reid IMO is not a 1st rounder, and I would not take him before Matt Elam, Jon Cyprien, or Phillip Thomas, all of whom should be available to the Ravens in the 1st and possibly 2nd. I WOULD take Reid over Swearinger though because Reid has a much higher upside and much better scheme versatility. Swearinger is a guy I've soured on a bit as I've watched more tape--he is only a box safety at the NFL level with his lack of speed and range. I think the Ravens are going to look for more versatility than he can offer.

    Reddick is another prospect I'm not really high on. There are many ILB prospects I would prefer over him--Jon Bostic, Kiko Alonso, Jelani Jenkins, Keith Pough, AJ Klein... all of them are 3rd-5th round type guys.

    Re: All Things Draft:

    I'd be pretty unhappy with the thought of Eric Reid as a first round pick, for starters, he's a free safety and would be exposed in the run game playing in the box at strong safety. We have a need at strong safety now that Huff was signed (and even that is debatable with Ihedigbo and Thompson on the roster). With that said, if the Ravens do end up picking Reid at 32, you wont hear me complaining, because they have the best scouting department in the NFL and know a ton more about these guys than any of us on this board know.

    In the end, I think the Ravens will almost surely come out of this draft with at least one safety, and more than likely going to be in the top 4 rounds, but I'm not sure if Eric Reid is the guy.

    Thanks Carey
    Glad to help! And it is a bit addicting, I agree!
    Fun as hell too. I'm going to start putting together WR, OL and ILB profiles on 2014 guys starting May 1st.

    Re: All Things Draft:

    Kiper is calling Cyprin in round 1 and Armstead in round 2. The thought of this excites me. Don't see Armstead falling that far, but would be great. Round 3 I'd say Rodgers, Round 4 I say Reddick and round 4 (comp) I'd be looking at OL depth or NT

    Sun via Roto: Texas A&M pass rusher Damontre Moore has already completed an in-house visit with the Ravens.

    That would be a great draft if all that pans out. Sweet!!
