    Re: T-Minus 14 Days...Draft Predictions



    I almost want to go out on a limb and say that Ozzie will go against his normal style of staying put or trading back and will acctually trade up to get Lane Johnson if he falls past the chargers.

    LT is a big need and they need to have a longterm answer for it. Considering how expensive they can be on the open market, it is cheaper on the salary cap to surrender some picks and draft one with the rookie salary cap.

    Probably wont happen, but I think if one of the LT's drop, it will happen. Granted, I do not know a lot about he prospects and there might be one in later rounds they can get.

    Re: T-Minus 14 Days...Draft Predictions

    I predict that we may trade either up or down, I don' t think we stay at 32. If up, it's to jump up in front of one of these WR or LB needy teams if someone falls around the mid-20's, but if back, it's because a couple players at safety, LB, and WRs are still available and Ozzie wants the best value. That move would be with a QB needy team in the early 2nd rd that is getting nervous about missing out on a player.


    I think we can't lose in these early rounds.

    This is how I feel too, only if L.J. is within striking distance (like Oher was in 2009). Ozzie won't over-pay. There is no reason for Ozzie to trade up for WR, ILB, or Safety, since the draft is stocked with them... Bc

    Moving up to 12 is going to require a 1st next year...you're talking about DOUBLE the value of our 32nd. I can't see Ozzie doing that, I really just can't.

    I agree to a point but the problem is that the Ravens will remain in the second half of the first round for the forseeable future, at least from what I think. A Good LT on the open market is going to suck so much cap space, that at some point they are going to have to draft one to develop.

    I just pray that they are not going to stick Oher to LT....I cant handle that again.

    I'm going to say, geno goes to jags, there is no way the new coach see Blaine as his starter. Boy is like Kyle boller , deer in headlights. I also think the chargers move up for lane Johnson. Moving up will cost, but if up, only for Austin. But damn that is a high cost. If he gets pass 14(car) we must get up to 15(NO) to get him. Please don't punish that young man by letting the sqeelers get him.
    Now if he is gone, I really like Arthur Brown, but I would still pick Armstead over him. Now we might have to go up a few spots, with a run on tackles, his name will be moving quickly to the top remaining. If you can get him for sure early second, then trade back, cause I know someone will come up for, yes, EJ manual. I so hope it's Arizona, fitz need a arm.

    I do not see the Jags taking Geno, unless they trade back. I agree they do not belive Gabbert is the longterm answer, but they have a lot of things they still need to build before they are competitive. They will give Gabbert another year and probably draft one next year. They should still have a top 10 pick next year.

    The QB class in this draft is so pathetic.

    Re: T-Minus 14 Days...Draft Predictions

    Yeah, u might be right, but the draft is so smokescreen it's hard to figure out. Two years ago no one seen, Blaine , ponder, and locker jumping up in first. Sry, Blaine was going to be first anyway, but you get my point. Everyone saying they hate this qB class, which make me think, a run going to happen in first anyway. Who knows.

    On a side note, doesn't it feel sweet to have a QB in Flacco!!

    Which is why I think Armstead and Watson will be a centered on our radar. It's rare to possibly have a choice of two well-tooled, long-armed ballet dancers available at 32 or even a bit later. The only consensus negative that I've read on either guy is experience. Armstud has the better feet, but Watson seems to be the vicious mauler.

    Then again, Xavier Nixon has great value in the 4th round... and of the film that I've seen, and while it wasn't easy, he handled Clowney better than anyone else that I saw last year.

    Settle down. John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco's Baltimore Ravens can beat any team, anywhere.

    Re: T-Minus 14 Days...Draft Predictions

    I predict that the Big 3 LTs will all be off the board by the 12th pick of the draft. Miami will take one of them, even if it means they have to move up to do so. I also think that Tavon Austin won't last past St. Louis' 16th pick, but he could go higher (he won't go lower). I predict San Francisco is going to make a major move up in the first round to grab an impact player.

    I think that one of Watson or Armstead will be a Raven by the end of the second round.
    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: T-Minus 14 Days...Draft Predictions

    I'm super excited to hopefully see Armstead in purple. Thanks to you fellas, with your film study and Knowledge, I'm super high on Armstead. Watson good too. I'm alittle nervous cause Armstead might move higher then 32, I'm truly hoping for a run on the tackles which I do think the top 3 will be gone by 12, and a run on WR. Here's hoping for Armstead!!!

    I think EJ(Florida st QB) will jump in top 32 and Woods(WR USC) will be a Texan. That will help getting Armstead.
