Show/Hide All Player Comments Round (Overall) Pos Name College Cls Height Weight 40
Show/Hide Player Comments 1st (16th) OT Taylor Lewan Michigan rSr 6'7 1/8" 309 lbs. 4.87
 

Analysis: Baltimore has two starting tackles with expiring contracts this season, everyone seems to doubt their ability to sign both of them with all the other contracts they need to get done. The Ravens could then just draft a new tackle and not have to worry about signing both Oher and Monroe. Lewan was an outstanding player for a team who didn't always live up to expectations, he's projected to be one of the top few tackles in the draft but that's only if he performs well at the combine.

Show/Hide Player Comments 2nd (16th) WR Jordan Matthews Vanderbilt Sr 6'3 1/8" 212 lbs. 4.46
 

Analysis: This guy Jordan Matthews has been a beast in the SEC. Not often do receivers put up the numbers he has over his college days, especially not in the SEC while playing for a lower caliber team. Matthews is the real deal and it's in his DNA I mean the guy is related to the Jerry Rice. The Ravens need a big bodied guy and at 6'3, Matthews fits the bill. I don't believe that the Ravens so desperately need a receiver as a lot of people say they do, they have an outstanding undrafted guy that named Marlon Brown who put up over 500 yards and 7 touchdowns, call me crazy but with another off season this guy could be so much more productive. Jordan Matthews could come in an contribute, give the Joe Flacco another weapon and provide competition for Brown and the Ravens leading receiver Torrey Smith.

Show/Hide Player Comments 3rd (15th) OC Weston Richburg Colorado St. rSr 6'3 1/4" 298 lbs. 5.10
 

Analysis: Wow I wouldn't be surprised if they wen't all offense for the first three rounds. They have a lot of holes on that side of the ball that need to be filled. The Ravens have mentioned how they would like to get bigger in their interior line and their center is the shortest guy in the starting line up at 6-3. I don't believe the Ravens brass was talking about getting a new offensive guard because they have two great guys, one being a perennial pro bowler and the other on his way there. Richburg is a riser and a guy that the Ravens could bring in to learn their new system and hopefully start for them in September.

Show/Hide Player Comments 4th (16th) FS Tre Boston North Carolina Sr 5'11 5/8" 204 lbs. 4.62
 

Analysis: The Ravens have said it themselves, they need a new free safety to move Matt Elam to his natural position at strong safety. Now, they could look for a veteran in free agency to step in and contribute or look into the draft to get a young guy. I do believe that the Ravens will sign a veteran safety to help the younger guys mature, and with that they will draft a guy at the end of the second day or early in the third day of drafting. Tre Boston is a riser, under the radar entirely, and with his ability to contribute as a corner (also a position of need) I don't think that Baltimore will pass him up. This is a compensatory pick.

Show/Hide Player Comments 5th (16th) 34DE Taylor Hart Oregon Sr 6'6 1/8" 281 lbs. 4.85
 

Analysis: With Arthur Jones leaving in free agency, I see the Ravens investing in a new defensive end to groom. I believe that guy to be Taylor Hart. He's versatile enough to play all across the line. This pick would be a bit of a reach, as Hart could go earlier but this has been a dream pick of mine for a few years, being a Duck fan. Hart is a tough guy and can contribute on the Ravens defensive rotation in September. Ozzie Newsome loves to draft guys on day 3 that can be groomed into stars. The guy that Hart is potentially replacing was drafted in the same round and now grades out as Walter Football's #1 free agent defensive tackle/end. Even if it's not Hart, the Ravens are going with a defensive lineman early in the final day of drafting. This is a compensatory pick.

Show/Hide Player Comments 5th (17th) TE Arthur Lynch Georgia rSr 6'4 5/8" 258 lbs. 4.82
 

Analysis: Everyone knows of Dennis Pitta's injury this off season and the troubles they are having on offense so this pick is a bit of a no brainer. Artie Lynch is not going to be a speedy player but that's not what the Ravens need. Lynch is smart, big and has reliable hands. Good pick. Year after year I see the Ravens taking players in the middle rounds that some people scratch their heads on. This is a compensatory pick.

Show/Hide Player Comments 6th (16th) CB Dexter McDougle Maryland rSr 5'10 1/4" 196 lbs. 4.47
 

Analysis: McDougle was a standout corner who could have had a huge season if he wasn't injured early on. I have a strong feeling this guy will end up staying in Maryland one way or another, even if it's as an undrafted free agent. Baltimore really needs another young competitive corner because they could be losing Corey Graham, one of their top three. He has limited returning experience but he's fast and could learn from the Ravens top corner, Lardarius Webb and take over. I don't think the Ravens are willing to give return reps to an important starter because they saw what can happen early in the 2013 season (ala Jacoby Jones and Brynden Trawick). In short, McDougle is a guy that the Ravens probably have their eye on and want to snatch up. This is a compensatory pick.

Another very realistic draft IMO. I see the need for an OT in this draft, especially as a high pick. Lewan fits the bill. Matthews makes for a great pick in the 2nd round, for any team that wants him. I'd do some cartwheels to land him there. I believe in the value and importance of having a great center (especially one with size that is highly intelligent) on your line to make all the line calls. Some seem to gloss over that. I'm glad you didn't.

Your defensive additions will provide depth but I think Boston has a chance to make a significant contribution early and might be a pleasant surprise to the roster in a starting role someday soon.
