    It's not too early: Rivals.com mock draft - Ravens CB



    May as well get into the offseason mind-set .....rivals.com

    8. Baltimore (4-9)
    The Pick: Antoine Cason, CB, Arizona
    The Buzz: The Ravens defense needs younger talent on the corner, and Cason is a top-flight cover man.

    39. Baltimore
    The Pick: Colt Brennan, QB, Hawaii
    The Buzz: The Ravens are looking for a quality young passer to compete for the starting job.
    In a 2003 BBC poll that asked Brits to name the "Greatest American Ever", Mr. T came in fourth, behind ML King (3rd), Abe Lincoln (2nd) and Homer Simpson (1st).

    You beat me to it..I was just going to post this link myself.

    I don't see the Ravens taking a CB w/ a top 10 pick.

    I see QB / DE / OL / WR before a CB

    Fanman, do you really see O-line? We've loaded up on young talent the last couple of years and we need to let it gel and get some leadership in considering Ogden's likely out the door, how does another young talent bring any leadership to this young line? The talent is there if we give it time to gel.

    I saw Cason a couple of times this year.And he is an amazing athlete.
    I'd be very happy with that pick.

    Brennan goes from an intense passing offense to Billicks offense.Should not take too long for him to learn,but will he stay awake while reading the playbook?
    Will Colt fit our system is what I am trying to say.
    Put the smile back on your face.This is a 60 minute ball game.

    I'd be happy with Cason. I'm pretty convinced that CB needs to be a major investment this offseason. The stiffs we have back there now have made our defense very suspect.
    Not sure I'd be that happy with any QB prospect as long as Billick is calling the offense. I fear it would be just a wasted pick.

    Colt Brennan would be a huge mistake.We would be another 5 years without a franchise QB.

    A great college QB. On top of that, for those of you who have not seen him a lot, he throws totally side arm. Out of a spread, and in the shot gun. He makes Bollers wind up look sound.

    If it is BB, no way. If it is a new coach who decides he wants him, then fine.

    And I agree we need a CB.

    Ravens' first pick should be one of the following: Matt Ryan, Brian Brohm or Andre Woodson, depending on who is still available.

    There have been MANY mock drafts that have the Ravens taking a QB.

    Too early for Cason, IMO. We should look to shore up our CB situation in the second round and get a franchise passer in the first. Good CBs can be found later on the first day and even sometimes on the second.

    Well with McAlister nursing a strained knee, Samari Rolle diagnosed with epilepsy, BOTH of them getting older, and your backup corners being Pittman and Martin???

    Yeah, I'll be happy with a CB in the first round.

    Taking Cason that high would be a mistake IMO. There will be plenty of talented CB's in the 2nd round. Talib from Kansas and Tribble from BC should both be there in the early 2nd.

    I honestly can not see the Ravens passing on a franchise QB. The main weakness of this team has been the QB position. You have a chance to once and for all solidify that position. You can't pass that up.

    I'll preface this by saying I think we should go with our BPA/don't reach strategy...

    That said, CB is definitley one of our top targets. Samari Rolle and Chris McAlister are unreliable as a starting tandem...They are both getting to the age where you can't rely on them both to be healthy at the same time. We saw how our backups are...Corey Ivy is only good as a nickel back, and the rest of them just can't cut it at the NFL level...yet, I'll give you, but we need to start planning for the eventual leaving of Rolle and/or McAlister. Both have very large contracts and both are starting to get past their prime, if not already in that area. If we're looking to rebuild this team, CB is a big area where we have holes.

    I think if I were to rate our needs as High/Medium/Low...

    HIGH - QB, CB, DL
    MEDIUM - WR, LB, TE (If Heap gets healthy and Wilcox and Syp step it up, this goes to Low), ST (Mainly because Stover will be retiring one of these years...Lloyd could be our answer there)
    LOW - OL, RB, S

    Our Offensive Line was bad this year, but we have all the young players in place that SHOULD make this line great. We need to give them time to develop before giving up on them. Next year, I say we need to start Terry/Gaither, Brown, Chester, Grubbs, Yanda. That's our line of the future, let's make it happen.

    SO, to sum up, my draft strategy would be looking first at the CB/QB/DL available at our spot. If there's nothing good, TRADE DOWN. There are a lot of good QB prospects and CB prospects in this draft. If we trade down to get a later pick in Round 1, keep our Round 2 pick and maybe pick up another Round 2 or a 3rd round pick, we should still be able to get impact players at QB and CB, then be able to pick up a DE/OLB later.
