    Re: Under the radar prospects you'd love to see in Baltimore?

    Brandon Brooks is my top "sleeper" choice.

    Defensively, I really like Tank Carder and Tavon Wilson. I'd also really love to see Ronnell Lewis and Miles Burris.

    Offensively, Marvin McNutt, TJ Graham, & Tauren Poole are guys I'd really love to see.

    Re: Under the radar prospects you'd love to see in Baltimore?

    I'm starting to like the idea of Greg Childs (WR, Arkansas). The guy is a load, attacks the ball instead of waiting for it to come to him, and grabs everything with his hands.

    I also wouldn't mind if they took a late round flier on Chris Greenwood (6' 1", CB, Albion). D3 player, but has some upside (and some incredible numbers reported: 4.34 in the 40 and a 43 inch vertical). He just may not be there in the 6th or 7th round.

    I think Brandon Brooks fits the team perfectly and will be there at #60, I'm PRAYING we get him. I'd like to see an OLB/DE or WR taken with pick 29, but I think the best thing to do is trade back and get someone like Sanu or Ronnell Lewis with a pick at the top of the 2nd and then get Brooks with 60.

    If we took Lewis at the start of the 2nd and Brooks at the end of the 2nd than with our 3rd we can look at Toon (my facorite)Childs, Streeter, Criner (it's hard to call how the recievers will fall in this draft)

    Leaving the first 3 rounds with Lewis, Brooks and Toon would have me doing cartwheels in the streets and giving out 50's to homeless people

    Greg Childs, again, in my opinion, was at one point a better prospect than Julio Jones. Arkansas didn't quite use Childs the way that Alabama used Jones, but his athleticism wasn't far behind and his hands were 'noticeably' better.

    I think Childs can be a player. He showed some pretty good flash in 2010. His pro day performance suggests that not only is he over his injury, but that he's actually both faster and stronger. He's a snatcher, body position guy, and more slippery after the catch than most cats his size. From what little I've seen, his boundary and cone awareness is excellent. I would not be surprised if Childs turns out to be a monumental steal when the media monkeys look back on this class in a few years.

    Criner - When I watch video on him, I keep expecting him to use his body more, but he doesn't. Nor does he elevate when he has the opportunity. It's tough to teach a big fella to become more aggressive at the age of 21-22. He left some college production on the table IMO.

    Toon - I want to like him and I guess that I do. Looks pretty reliable in the hands department, but dude hasn't demonstrated any route moves whatsoever that I've seen. I mean, he barely plants a foot. However, he does use his body well. Much better than Criner.

    Overall, for the mid-round WRs, I like Childs, McNutt and Marv Jones the most.

    McNutt has a solid body-of-work, large hands, and set-ups his routes nicely. He's a slippery YAC guy as well, and he's a leader. Watching him for 2 1/2 years (Iowa is always on ESPN), it seems that his 4.54 40time is what he might run in pads. Overall, he's a young Boldin (played QB in HS and as a Frosh), and while I know we all would like a diverse WR corps, I can't help but think that our FO likes this guy an awful lot. Could product from day 1 IMO.

    MJones - huge radius, large hands, and is strong as well. His speed 4.11 20 yard time suggests that he could become a slippery, if not multi-geared route runner if he worked at it. Could contribute eventually.

    Tank Carder, Ladarius Green, and Devon Wylie are the ones that come to mind for me.

    Re: Under the radar prospects you'd love to see in Baltimore?

    Several guys I like a lot that will be mid-late round picks...

    Nate Potter, OT, Boise State
    -He needs to add strength, but he has the skill set to play on the left side in the NFL.

    T.Y. Hilton, WR / RS, Florida International
    -Productive WR (70+ catches 1000+ yards 7 TDs, and an elite return man to boot).

    DeQuan Menzie, CB, Alabama
    -Physical press CB with a lot of experience in the nickel, and a stand-out special teamer.

    James Carmon, OT, Mississippi State
    -Late-round project RT with great strength and incredible athleticism for his size.
