    Re: Who might we pick in round 2 (and round 3)?

The other thing to note is that only one mocker remembers how thin the Ravens' secondary is.

    Walter football has the Ravens taking Jordan Matthews. He3's been on the Ravens to take a big WR the whole offseason. ASJ is the next pick.

    Walter's friend Charlie Campbell has us taking Cody Latimer. The next two picks are Landry and S'ua Filo.

    Alpha Football has us with Demarcus Lawrence. ASJ again is the next pick. Gabe Jackson is the pick after that.

    Fanspeak has two drafts out:
    - Willy says round 2 the Ravens pick Jordan Matthews. Willy's round three sees the Ravens taking CB Jaylen Watkins then OT Billy Turner. Plausible, though I see Turner being picked earlier.

    - Fanspeak Steve sees the Ravens picking Marquise Lee in round 2. Wow.

    Dane Brugler at CBS has a round 2 mock out. Ravens take Xavier Su'a-Filo. I can give a knee jerk response in saying that the guard will be picked before the Ravens are on the clock but just looking at the players picked before in this mock...damn this is a deep draft. Which I already said.
    Thanks for posting those mocks. Seems like most feel the Ravens will take a WR in the 2nd. I wouldn't be surprised.

    Overall, I still expect them to draft OL, WR, DB, RB, TE (probably need in that order) if the right guy is available when they pick

    They've got big needs at DE, but looking at what's left they could be looking at a really good deal on an offensive lineman.

    I'm actually starting to buy into this plan. Given the WR depth and that Steve Smith placates the need slightly...

    We need FS HUGE
    We need RT HUGE
    We need CB pretty big
    We need RB pretty big
    We need DL pretty big
    We need WR big

    5 positions I could see us looking to address before WR. But then again, ILB was probably sandwiched between RB and DL for me, but Mosley's talent caused FO to fall in love with him

    This board will implode if the Ravens take a RB with the 48th pick. Posters will be tearing their garments and covering themselves in sackcloth and ashes, crying out, "Oh, why didn't we take an OL or WR? Why?" So much weeping and gnashing of teeth. It will be epic.

    3rd ILB followed by a 3rd RB, yeah I wouldnt be ecstatic about that.

    I think Hill is the best RB in this draft, but i wouldnt take him at 48.

    I actually like Mike Davis quite a bit and no, I wouldn't be surprised or disappointed by this. He would be a good value pick if available at those spots.

    The luxury selection of Mosley in the 1st makes the actual needs at OL and FS far more glaring. The Ravens can't really afford to get out of the draft without adding a free safety and offensive lineman who can each compete to start from day 1. They need a WR as well, but it wouldn't be unreasonable to wait on that if the board works out that way.

    He is on my pick six list on the other thread.

    We need a TE big, actually maybe MORE than WR. Especially a solid blocker.

    The more I think about it, the more I talk myself into it. Which is insane, I would've ripped my own balls off if a month ago, I suggested we wait till late to draft WR in this draft.

    Here's what I'd do, providing the players are left on the board.

    Antonio Richardson in the 2nd.
    Jeremy Hill with our natural 3rd Rd pick
    Torn between Ed Reynolds and Mike Davis with our comp 3rd rder.

    Not sure the consensus on this, but I didn't see any FS in this whole draft who could start day 1. FS is a dying position in college. They don't use ballhawk types anymore. Teams look for run support and tackling, and place less premium on coverage.

    The safe passing systems, quick hitters, bubble screens etc mean fewer balls over the top for safeties to get after so colleges, who have to defend mostly non-pro type offenses, simply aren't training players to play FS all that much. More and more they're moving forward to hit a ballcarrier, since the receivers are catching so many balls near the LOS.

    The pros are having to follow suit. Last year the Ravens played with Dig and Elam, and I would expect this season and the future to be similar. They'll draft another safety, but if it's more a "strong safety" that won't be a surprise. That's mostly what there is.

    I think we go defense again, followed up by RB and then WR (or vice versa)

    Then we'll pick up some under the radar OL guys to compete late.
    And sign an UDFA punter, TE project, along with a boatload of other guys.

    I don't think they get the safety until the fourth round. I think they get an offensive lineman and pass catcher before they find their safety. I'd say the safety they end up taking is Wyoming's Marqueston Huff.

    My ideal for the next two picks would b:
    48. Morgan Moses, OT, UVA
    78. C.J. Fiedorowicz, TE, Iowa

    Alternatively:
    48. Jordan Mathews, WR, Vanderbilt
    78. Jack Mewhart, OT, OSU

    For their comp pick at the end of the third, I'll throw out this wildcard:
    99. Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, Eastern Illinois

    The Ravens 2nd round pick will be Carlos Hyde (if he gets past Cleveland)
