    I am on a big Robert Woods' bandwagon right now (but in a trade back scenario). I see the draft with several interchangeable parts at WR, safety and linebacker who the Ravens can grab in rounds 2-4, but (although many would disagree), I think Robert Woods is exactly the receiver that would thrive immediately in the Ravens' offense. That's not to say that other WRs wouldn't, but to me he looks like the most plug and play guy out there for the position and a solid compliment to Torrey Smith.

    If Ogletree is there he will be the pick without a doubt. The only other player among those I'd be interested in is Reid, but we can probably get him later. Of course if Brown is there I want Ozzie sprinting to the podium, but I think he's going to be gone before we get a shot at him.

    Re: Be Ozzie. Tell me which of these SEC juniors you pick at 32.

    I would not draft Alec Ogletree at all. The issues with alcohol cannot be ignored and, to be honest, I was not very impressed with him on tape anyway. He's a Safety trying to play Inside Linebacker and it is as clear as today on tape.

    I choose to trade up. This is the year to do it, because we all know that 12 draft picks will not make this team. There are usually 1-2 Undrafted Free Agents that make the team, along with 1-2 veterans signed between June and August.

    Even if Tavon Austin is not there, I have a feeling that a top 15 prospect will fall close enough to the Ravens to move up. Some teams are going to get cute. It happens every year. It might be Chance Warmack. All of a sudden, you can move Osemele to LT and put Warmack at LG day 1. It might be Tavon Austin, while the slot/scat guy continues to be overlooked that high.

    I chose move down and pick up a 4th, but if Warmack fell to the mid 20's for who knows what reason, moving up to grab him and sliding KO to LT is a no brainer.

    Re: Be Ozzie. Tell me which of these SEC juniors you pick at 32.

    I think that you could trade back to 37 and get one out of Ogletree/Elam/Minter. One of those guys will be left. Then with our natural pick 62, I would think Reid (assuming no Elam) or Hunter would still be available there.

    Heck, we could draft Minter 37, Hunter 62nd, and package the 4th rounder we got from trading back to 37 along with a 6th rounder and move up to the top of the 3rd round and get Reid. It's an SEC draft. My mock has the Ravens taking Minter, Reid, and Mathieu.

    Shaslers, in short, if we were forced to choose between your selection, we might have different ideas of who we would take. However, if we had the opportunity to move out of that spot and none of the top first round talent fell close enough for us to move up with a third at the most, I think we'd all trade back. We all believe that most of the guys you optioned will be available at the top of the second.

    Re: Be Ozzie. Tell me which of these SEC juniors you pick at 32.

    How would you like this draft?


    Pick 38 (from Arizona)- Alec Ogletree- MLB- Georgia
    Pick 62- Darius Slay- CB- Mississippi St
    Pick 82 (trading up from 94, with package of 5th round pick)- Baccari Rambo, S, Georgia
    Pick 95 (traded up from 103, pick obtained from trading back with Arizona, along with 6th round pick from SF obtained in Boldin trade)- Barrett Jones, OG/C/T, Alabama
    Pick 121 (traded up from 129, along with our natural 6th rounder)- Kenny Stills, WR, Oklahoma
    Pick 129- Supplemental 4th rounder- Chris Faulk, OT, LSU
    Pick 168- Supplemental 5th rounder- Michael Williams, TE, Alabama


    Aside from Stills, that would be a great SEC-heavy draft IMO. We would fill every major spot of need and still have 3 picks in the 6th and 7th round.

    If they have to stick at 32 and pick from those guys?

    Matt Elam all the way. He is the best player out of that bunch.

    Matt Elam would be a Day 1 starter at SS, especially behind this front seven.

    If Ogletree is there, I'd be MIGHTY tempted to pull the trigger on him at 32...but if you can really get a nice 4th rounder for 5 spots, then I'd do it and just hope he keeps falling. He probably won't, but getting that extra pick and still coming away with Elam or Reid or Minter would be great to me.

    What conferences do the Ravens draft a relatively high percentage? Big 12 and non-BCS schools. For both they draft at the fifth highest rate of all NFL teams.
    Current Ravens from the SEC include and we know how much Ozzie likes Alabama:

    Upshaw - Alabama
    Cody - Alabama
    Oher - Ole Miss - all starters during the year and contributors in SB 47
    Josh Bynes - Auburn
    Torey Gurely - South Carolina
    Marcus Spears - LSU
    Deonte Thompson - Florida
    Emanuel Cook - South Carolina
    DeAngelos Tyson - Georgia

    Plus departed SEC stars like

    Jamal Lewis - Tenn
    JJ - another from Alabama

    That's a lot right there. How many more do you want?

    Ravens do specialize in great finds from the small colleges like Flacco from Delaware
    and Webb from Nicholis State and Harewood from little Moorehouse plus a
    ton of guys from Miami like you know who and our own former Terps like Torrey Smith,
    LaQuan Williams and SB 35 star Jermaine Lewis.

    I'd say Ozzie spreads em out from many venues and has two rings to show for his great
    drafting and undrafted finds like Priest Holmes.

    I guess they have to decide if there's a guy likely to be there that they really covet. I lean toward Elam if he's there. From what I've seen, he's a hard hitter and "Ravens" type player who might be able to step right in at safety. I'm sure Oz will figure it out, though. He usually does.
