    I voted for Hopkins, because of the void created by the Boldin trade. However, if there is one position where Ozzie seems to have a blind spot it is WR. He has rarely hit on drafting WRs, which is why I could also see the Ravens taking a S (Elam, Cyprian) in Round 1, and then coming back with a WR in Round 2. DaRick Rodgers would be an interesting pick in the second or third round.

    I have seen them saying the same thing about Bellicheck on the draft shows on both ESPN and the NFL Network. They said he even admits to having a blind spot at the position, and that is why he goes for veteran receivers. It is funny when you think Ozzie learned from him and all of the vet receivers we have brought in/traded for over the years. They also noted that is why they will not project a first round wr for the Pats even though it is their biggest need.

    I still have visions of Pitta replacing Boldin. He is similar in a lot of ways, I just don't know if he can currently reproduce the route precision but the chemistry he has with Joe should make that easier.

    That is why I chose Eifert (but doubt if he is still there). A TE that can contribute, a shift to slot for Pitta, and Dickson stays the 2nd TE because we took a primary with the 1st (and Pitta's replacement at FA if need be).
    But again I doubt Eifert makes it past the low 20's
    To understand paranoid people better, follow them around.

    I'll explain a little bit what went into my thinking on the poll choices.

    In the mocks I looked at most people usually have Eifert going to the Falcons or Niners at 30 or 31. Of course they are just playing the game of who needs what.

    I can personally say that anyone from Notre Dame scares the crap out of me since the track record of golden domers in the NFL is awful.

    It's also interesting to ponder the fact that Zach Ertz is the other highly touted TE who Jim Harbaugh coached in college. Just saying....

    It is interesting to recall that with the last pick of the 2001 draft the Ravens took a tight end despite still having Shannon Sharpe coming back. I do see the scenario where the Ravens plan for Dickson being gone--I don't see them paying both Pitta and Dickson, and Pitta is clearly more valuable to them right now.

    I wanted to see how people rate Elam versus Cyprian. Personally, I like Cyprian a little bit better. Kiper rates him second best in the draft, ahead of Reid and Elam.

    I threw in Williams because I think NT is a bigger need than many think.

    Armstead I like and he'd be a stretch. But if he can really play LT, getting a LT at 32 would be a great pick.

    There doesn't seem to be much buzz on WR's in general. I thought about including Keenan Allen too, just for comparison sake, but he's a guy who is all over the place in mocks, anywhere from 12 overall to out of the first round. Some people see Hopkins going to the Texans at 27, so that's something to watch for next Thursday, but not a lot of love for him in the first.

    TE is HUGE now in the NFL --- Why wouldn't several teams want him in 1st round ?
    How many of those young and very good Tight Ends were drafted in the 1st round? Not too many.
