    I think we'll go pass rusher in the first.

    If we could somehow land Joey Bosa without giving up the entire year...that would be sick.

    Can someone tell me why Hackenberg is the #1 QB prospect? He had a 55.8 completion percentage and threw 15 picks vs 10 TDs.
    Let's win the f**king game.

    It seems logical, and it is a need, but Ozzie goes for BPA in the 1st. Why reach for a specific position when a superior player can be found at another? Perhaps when the Ravens choose (#32 :)) the top player on our board will be Oline or RB (?) Remember, that in 2015 we needed a CB, but Ozzie waited until very late 4th (comp pick) to do so... Bc

    That'd be awesome, but right now there's no way he'll fall to us. Assuming we have a typical Ravens season.

    Would like to see more on DeForest Buckner in particular. He looks at the moment like he could be a nice fit to replace Canty.

    Dadi Nicholas of Virginia Tech is intriguing as a possible 3-4 pass rushing OLB.

    Interesting that overall there doesn't seem to be as much height in the 2016 CB class. It's going to be a need for the Ravens, and IMHO they are in a can't-miss position on the next CB they draft. They've got to hit. Fuller seems out of reach at the moment, but I'd call him the safest choice. His teammate Brandon Facyson is also an excellent prospect, though as a rSoph; he was a big loss last year when he got hurt. If they both come out early, I'd expect Fuller to go in the mid first at the latest, with Facyson, listed at 6-2, no later than mid second. I'll probably see just about every game they play, and nowhere do CBs get tested playing "on an island" than at blitz-crazy VT. Fuller's man-coverage skills are not in question, and there's no serious question about Facyson's either, and Facyson might have better ball skills. Will be fun to watch.

    I've been watching some tape from last season and I know he is pretty hyped right now, but Scooby Wright would be an outstanding pick for the Ravens.

    6'1" 245lbs and can play outside or inside linebacker. I think he projects better as an inside linebacker, but he's a good pass-rusher too. He takes great angles and makes a lot of stops. I also really like that he is always going for the ball without giving up on the tackle. He's quite good at causing a turnover.

    Man I LOVE Zeke Elliott. Wish we could have a shot at him. Dude is a straight up beast. Always finishes his runs, tremendous balance and ability to break tackles.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    It's probably my heart talking more than my head but I would love it if Barry Sanders ended up on the Ravens.
