    Re: The 2014 Ravens Draft Thread



    Spikes is a FA too, he is one of the best run thumping LBs in the league.

    True, and the word around the league is that the Patriots are not interested in re-signing him. Evidently he has some off-the-field issues.

    Having said that, the best option for the Ravens at ILB IMO is to re-sign Daryl Smith, give Arthur Brown every chance to win the starting job next to him, and draft an ILB in the mid to late rounds.

    I don't think Smith will be terribly expensive at all and he looks to have 2 or 3 good years left. He hasn't been great against the run, but the DL was a big part of that this year. For some reason people aren't talking at all about how inconsistent the interior DL was this year. Art Jones played really well pretty consistently, but Haloti Ngata was very inconsistent and Chris Canty didn't do much after the first few games.

    I really want to see Brandon Williams get a chance at real playing time on the nose next year. Whatever they do, they need to do a better job of keeping their ILBs clean.

    The run defense was ranked 9th right? Halto Ngata had a pretty dominant year at NT, it was Art Jones and Canty who were inconsistent against the run, they were better as pass rushers however. Much better than the year before anyway.

    All for seeing Brandon Williams get some more work. He showed some flashes and I love the work effort. How about Tyson! He showed some signs in the second half of season.
    I'm pissed off for greatness!!

    Very few players are Superman. I thought D. Smith had an outstanding season, and was one of the few bright spots. 123 tackles, 5 sacks, 3 INTs (including one for a TD), 2 FFs, and a whopping 19 PDs, and you're gonna criticize him? Not me, I want him resigned... Bc

    Right? Daryl Smith and Jimmy Smith were our two best defenders this year and I don't think it was close.

    Re: The Case for a Defense-heavy Draft

    D smith is an animal, stopping the run may not be his strong suit but it doesn't help when your dline is constantly getting pushed back and can't get off their blocks. It sucks that Suggs has his contract structured the way he does because I think he's more valuable than ngata at this point. If the roles were reversed I don't think it'd be a question of whether or not to get rid of ngata. D smith had a pro bowl type year and was definitely the MVP of the defense with jimmy as a close second. Monroe pitta smith. Most important signings right there

    all we really need on defense is a really good run stopping MLB like spikes, add a true FS, and add more depth on d line

    I wasn't really criticizing him. I was stating the obvious. Hey I like D. Smith also but when you have a chance to get better you do that. You either get better or you get worse can't stay the same. And at his age I can't see him getting any better but I would not mind having him back at the right price I agree he was a bright spot but he was bad against the run.

    I think this upcoming draft needs to be offensive oriented. I want a WR first round. Trade up for Watkins, stay for Marqise Lee, trade back for Mike Evans. Ebron would be cool too. Take an oline men in the second or third rounds. But 2 out of top 3 picks needs to be targets for Joe. Hopefully we KO back, resign Monroe. Add some compitition at center, maybe give Wagner a shot and our online could be more suitable.

    Yea I think Ngata has gotten lazy in the offseason these past two years he has come into came overweight. This year he said it was because he wanted to be bigger because he was going to play NT but I don't buy that I think he didn't work out like he was suppose to. It's a big coincidence that his contract yr he came into camp in the best shape of his life and was very dominating. I think he needs to get back to that size and we need to move him around and not just have him at the same spot because offenses can key on him.
