    That's exactly what I think happened.

    I caught the tail end of an interview (I can't recall who exactly, but I think it was Kevin Byrne) where he said the Ravens were on the phone with Mosley's agent while Dallas was on the clock and told the agent they were going to take Mosley "or a tackle" depending on what Dallas did. Did anyone else hear that?

    In a different interview this morning -- I know it was Byrne this time -- I heard him say that they were fielding two offers to trade out of 17 (Eric on the phone with one, Ozzie with another) but Bisciotti in particular was lobbying hard that teams would have to pay a premium to get that pick from them. He heard both guys say "that's not enough" to the offer, and at the four minute mark Ozzie announced he was calling Mosley.

    Yes, no doubt they felt pretty confident with the pick. Would be nice to know what offers they turned down but that detail may never come out

    They were pretty jazzed after TRADING UP for Arthur Brown last year in the 2nd.

    In two straight years we both trade up for a LB then use a 1st rd pick on a LB. That is a lot of draft capital for LBers.

    makes sense to me.

    didnt Ozzie say after bisciotti handed the phone to harbs..."great pick Trent, hes my fan, a chip off the old block"... who the hell was he talking about if that was the Cowboys and Jones picking right before us?

    Anybody with better ears than me decipher that? 1:14 mark of the war room celebration. Theres no Gm names trent anywhere near us that i know of so maybe im off on what i heard.

    its possible we were on the phone with mosley even earlier (or maybe it was after we already selected him).

    Here is a Bleacher Report story from an Alabama writer that describes the countdown to the Ravens' pick of Mosley similarly.

    The Ravens are definitely getting an enthusiastic player. It's a dream job for Mosley. It's very cool to see a player who really knows the team, it's culture and history. A couple of years ago when Ryan Tannehill was drafted and didn't even know that the Chiefs weren't in his division I realized just how clueless so many of these guys are about their own team. Great to see that's not the case here.

    Re: Ravens war room celebrate

    Haven't seen this yet for some reason (haven't looked that hard so I apologize if it has been posted) but Mosley himself said that the Ravens told him if they were available, the Ravens would choose between him and Zack Martin at the pick. Based on that, I'd assume that the Ravens were going to take Martin if he was there, so they were probably a bit upset that he went to Dallas one pick before (which the Ravens lost on an effing coin flip). Either way, they are probably thrilled to have Mosley.

    Ok we get it, you don't need to go into EVERY thread and post your hate for the pick.

    I guess some folks just feel the need to rip on Harbs any chance they get.
    HARBs is a very religious person and even as a Daily Devotional on his desk and a Bible verse on his wall or used to. A lot of people like that are huggers in church and transfer it to the work place some times.

    HARBs is very popular amongst the ranks and just about everyone he meets.

    DeCosta said they wouldn't have drafted Martin or Lewan over Mosley if they were on the board. They didn't even bring Martin here to interview and they said he was more of an OG than OT.

    As the vid shows, Mosley was their man all along.

    Re: Ravens war room celebrate

    Watch the post first round presser on BR.com

    As for our coach, John Harbs is a good man. Love having him.
    He is a genuine good guy.
    John is often lumped into the same boat as his brother, but these are two very different people.

    Re: Ravens war room celebrate

    Celebrate what?? That was a bone headed pick, average at best. I was thinking more of the super safety they could have had, another linebacker for number one pick .... really?? What next, another field goal kicker in the second round, if that's there logic best available player?? I think the Steelers did great and so did the Browns. The Ravens so far are looking not so great! Plus .this linebacker is undersized and prone to get hurt. Are there any other teams the Ravens look to draft from other then Alabama??? Upshaw was the last , and we see how that has worked out. Sorry to be a drag on everybody's darling Ozzie, but he hasn't had a real good pict since Ray Rice IMO. Time to move on!

    I wasn't giving him crap, I just thought it looked very awkward and silly. Since I've been accused of being either Flacco's little brother or Harbaugh's kid depending on which poster is sick of my optimistic opinion about the Ravens, I figured it was obvious that I was mocking from a place of love.

    Oh come on, I don't think anyone is SERIOUSLY busting on Harbs for trying to hug them. If anything, it shows/tells me two things...

    1. He really liked the process and pick
    2. More fuel that this is Ozzie's final draft, and thus, final 1st round move there. Emotional realizing this guy you've been so tied to is living out his last hurrah (again, rumoured).

    It just looked funny is all.
