    Re: Three years from now who will be your favorite Raven from this draft class?



    Haven't heard much from any other pick, but Elam makes me beam. The smiles he got from us drafting him, he's an exciting kid...Brown excites me too, as well as Simon and Juszczyk

    I think Brown is going to be a good consistent player for years to come but I think Elam is going to be a play maker and premier player at S. I dont think ill be disappointed with either.

    Local talent (LaQuan factor) Has a decent chance for ST and Bajema's spot

    Don't know about favorite (could be any of 4 or 5), just suggesting favorite darkhorse.
    I hope that works out as well. I really think if they would have had decent QB play at U of MD, he would have been picked in the mid rounds ( 5ish )

    I have a feeling that Arthur Brown is going to be thought of in 2013 the way KO was thought of in 2012. With that said for me personally it's going to be the Fullback. I am a huge fan of having a real H-Back on the team. To me it's the greatest gift that Joe Gibbs gave to the NFL. Guys in that position just naturally make plays. That's why they are so tough to find and rarely used. Harvard Kyle looks like he's the real deal. I can't wait to see what Caldwell come up with for him in this offense.

    Could Matt Furstenburg be an H-back like the guy the Ravens drafted out of Harvard? Furstenburg seems to be built more like an H-back rather than a traditional NFL TE.

    He certainly could be used as a traditional H-Back. Anyone ever read the history of how Gibbs invented the position to slow down Lawrence Taylor? The H-Back was really the seldom used halfback (not the tailback) in his offense. He moved the half back to the line of scrimmage and used motion to create problems.

    Recall also that Caldwell has connections the the Tom Moore/Peyton Manning offenses. The Colts ran a two tight end set (they called it their Ace scheme) with one of the tight ends playing the Y, that is, the slot, position. When you look at Juice in college he seems to be playing this role mostly.

    If he can be anywhere close to the player Dallas Clark (1st round, Iowa & Mackay winner) or Chris Cooley (3rd rounder Utah State), we're in business.

    If you just look at the division it's loaded with pass rushers. The Steelers can always rush the passer. Both the Browns and Bengals added pass rushers in free agency and the early part of the draft. A H-Back who can block in space would be tremendous. It really allows you to do so many things offensively that are critical if you are trying to get the ball deep down the field.

    Anyone know what differentiates Arthur Brown from Tavares Gooden?

    Matt Elam. Playmaker who loves to lay the wood on offensive players.

    Both started as OLB at Miami and were moved inside. But Brown improved and was consistent after transferring to K State, with right around 60 tackles per season. Gooden was up and down at Miami, he had one really great season as a sophomore but then had a medical redshirt year and then came into the draft after a so so junior year. He struggled with injuries and wasn't great getting off blocks. He was mostly a safety trying to play in the box. Brown can use his hands and is a lot more of an instinctual player, not just an athletic specimen. Way more of a smart leader.

    actually caring about the game firstly. Then instincts, injuries and staying out of strip clubs. Tavares spent more time at strip clubs and night clubs then on the practice feild or film room. It's too bad, he had some talent.
