    Ravens are not afraid to search all rosters, that's why they are successful



    The Ravens are not afraid to search a roster, big colleges or small colleges, they were willing to take Adrian Hamilton. Christian Thompson, Joe Flacco, Gino Gradkowski, I mean small schoolers that can play. That is why you have to give our scouts a round of applause.

    Well check out this list, their scouts were present today at the Arkansas Pine Bluff pro day, maybe looking at Terron Armstead, but look at this list, pretty cool. You can see the small schoolers coming out with interviews of the players too.

    Armstead REALLY intrigues me. No doubt our scouts were there to see him; he's rising fast.

    Armstead is one of those guys thats worth a chance but probably not as high as hes going to go. This guy has him listed as a 2nd. Im not sure where you feel safe taking a project LT, but I think its lower than that.

    Thing is, if this guy was 2/3 inch taller, and had arms that were 1/2 inch longer, he'd be in the conversation for being a top 20 pick.

    Considering this draft class is deep at LT prospects, if another team nabs Armstead before we do, I think we'll still be able to draft someone to groom. There is a strong possibility that Armstead gets drafted too high because of his potential.

    Every team looks at small schools. It's not like the Ravens are doing something different than others.

    Difference is, the Ravens unlike most teams, are not afraid to invest into small school and unknown talent. I mean, what teams has ever had a Delaware center snapping the ball to a Delaware QB in the NFL?

    The Ravens clearly favor the ACC and SEC conferences, but a large portion of this team is made up by former college FCS players.

    Id prefer teams to take the gambles and leave us with the more polished prospects, but with our coaching i think we can actually get the best from some that others wont. so really i guess im fine either way id just rather not spend a 2nd on a project, unless mckinnie or another starting caliber LT not named Oher is on the team.

    I feel comfortable with whichever developmental LT we take due to our coaching and the acquisition of Juan Castillo. Armstead,Watson,Faulk, quessenberry, bahtkiari. I'd be happy with any of those guys given the right value

    I'd take armstead at 32. Huge untapped potential and upside. I think he's going to be a great left tackle for a long time
