    If these were your best seven options at pick 32, you would take...



    Play along with my annual game. Assume that these are the best seven options available to you with the 32nd pick.

    Assume that guys you may have liked better than these players are all gone (even if you didn't expect them to be gone), and no other team is willing to work a trade with you--neither up nor down.

    Which one of these seven players would you most want the Ravens to draft with their first-round pick?

    This...hehehe it's MATT Elam.

    I'd rank them...

    Hopkins
    Cyprien
    Elam
    Eifert
    Williams
    Minter

    Armstead I do want probably as much as Hopkins, but not at 32. I would trade back to 38-40 and take him there. Also, many here believe Minter isn't worthy of #32 either.

    LOL. So much pressure to type up the poll questions after you already submit the initial thread.

    Of course, I called Bernard Pollard Marcus Pollard two weeks in a row when rushing to write up a post-game report card.

    I'll take Armstead.

    By the way, for the position of "character actor," I'll take weird-eyed Jack Elam.

    Matt Elam. All day. Every day.

    Big hitter, can play SS or FS, good tackler, good deep-coverage ability, good ball skills.

    If Justin Hunter fell this far...I would vote for him.

    I have no idea honestly. I have seen some of those prospects enough to have an opinion of them, but not nearlt enough to stack a board.

    I love Jessie Williams as a nose tackle. I think he will be a 10 year stud there. Matt Elam really stood out in the games I saw. He reminds me of a young Ed Reed a little. Not sure what his times are but he has a burst to the football and seems to know his angles. I did not see Clemson play much but they were always lighting up the highlights and I like everything I read about Hopkins.

    I love the idea of DeAndre Hopkins, Jessie Williams, Jonathan Cyprien, and Tyler Eiffert on the Ravens...

    But out of that entire group, I think Matt Elam fits the Ravens the best.

    Spending a first rounder on Terron Armstead would be a big reach IMO. 2nd round is a possibility.

    That is funny!!!! He was a good one, also. I think Eiffert at 32 is a steal and can play fast, with great hands and blocks decently. He is a NO risk pick, maybe the only one on the list. You could move both Pitta and him into the slot. He wont be thier at 32, no way. Plus, Ravens have 2 TE's that are FA next year. Special talent. He would be a redzone nightmare with Pitta. He is All PRO TE written all over him. Eiffert is the only consensus top 25 talent on the list, all the others outside of maybe Elam have lots of risk. Several mocks have him going in the top 20.

    Voted Hopkins, struggled to choose between him and Eiffert. Our FA pickups really lead to LT, then BPA, but LT isn't value there and although Eiffert is probably a bit higher overall value then Hopkins, I really thik that Hopkins plays a more valuable position and could find a useful role as early as next year.

    What intrigues me about Eifert is that he is 6'6" with good hands and a 36 vertical leap, and had basketball scholarships offers and his father was a basketball player at Purdue, great athelete, better than anyone on that list. Redzone nightmare and great for jumpballs.
