      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

    Apologies in advance for how long this post will be - because i was using excel to collate everything it's difficult for it to format well into this forum: i considered just putting it all on a google drive for y'all but that doesn't really seem like the done thing here... If it is I can maybe collate it all on a google drive and post a link to make it easier... Apologies as well for the bizarre post earlier that obviously didn't work. I'll start with my mock because it's easiest i reckon. I tried not to be too obvious as far as possible but within reason so a lot of the picks will look familiar I imagine. I fully mocked 2 rounds and then drafted in the ball park for the other picks: MOCK DRAFT Round 1 1) Browns - Myles Garrett - EDGE 2) 49ers - Jonathan Allen - DL: I find it hard to see the 49ers three-peating with DL in the first but the Jets kind of did it in the past and there's no offensive talent for Shanahan to clamour for at this spot. I could very much see the 49ers trying to trade out of this spot for a team that loves a qb and thinks the bears / jets will take one. 3) Bears - Solomon Thomas - DL: Thomas is a missing piece on that defence but I could also see the Bears trying to trade out of this spot too - it's reported that both the Jets and Browns are interested in Trubisky but there were quotes from a scout saying the Jets were in love with Trubisky but that he wouldn't make it to 6 - I personally have a feeling that's a Titans scout trying to scare a team into trading with them at number 5. 4) Jaguars - Leonard Fournette - RB 5) Titans - Jamal Adams - S 6) Jets - Marshon Lattimore - CB: The jets may take Trubisky but I'm going to err away from the side of sensationalism. 7) Chargers - Malik Hooker - S 8) Panthers - OJ Howard - TE: Greg Olsen is getting older and there are no linemen worthy of this pick I think - OJ Howard gives Cam Newton a weapon he'll find it hard to miss. 9) Bengals - Derek Barnett - EDGE: Game-changer off the edge, I'd hate this but it makes a lot of sense. 10) Bills - Mike Williams - WR: They need help opposite Sammy Watkins (or to replace him when he's injured) 11) Saints - Reuben Foster - ILB 12) Browns - Mitchell Trubisky - QB: They apparently really like him so if he falls to 12 I see them pulling the trigger. 13) Cardinals - Deshaun Watson - QB: I struggled with this pick so looked around the league - I have the impression that the Cardinals are happy at qb but there is a growing idea that they'll pick a qb here. 14) Eagles - Dalvin Cook - RB 15) Colts - Forest Lamp - OL 16) Ravens - Corey Davis - WR: He's a different kind of receiver to what Flacco has at the moment. The worries about the level of competition are obviously real but I have confidence that he can transition well because of his elite route-running skills and ability to hands-catch. 17) Washington - Haason Reddick - LB 18) Titans - John Ross - WR 19) Bucs - Christian Mccaffrey - RB 20) Broncos - Cam Robinson - OL 21) Lions - Tim Williams - EDGE 22) Dolphins - Zach Cunningham - ILB 23) Giants - Ryan Ramcyzk - OL 24) Raiders - Marlon Humphrey - CB 25) Texans - Garrett Bolles - OL 26) Seahawks - Teez Tabor - CB 27) Chiefs - Dan Feeney - OL 28) Cowboys - Gareon Conley - CB 29) Packers - Taco Charlton - EDGE 30) Steelers - Takk Mckinley - EDGE 31) Falcons - Budda Baker - S 32) Saints - Tredavius White - CB: I'm assuming the trade for Malcolm Butler doesn't happen and that the Saints need a corner. Round 2 1) Browns - Obi Melifonwu - S 2) 49ers - Quincy Wilson - CB 3) Jags - Jabrill Peppers - S 4) Bears - Deshone Kizer - QB 5) Rams - Charles Harris - EDGE 6) Chargers: Jarrad Davis - EDGE 7) Jets - Alvin Kamara - RB 8) Panthers - Adoree Jackson - CB 9) Bengals - Cooper Kupp - WR 10) Saints - Malik Mcdowell - DL 11) Eagles - David Njoku - TE 12) Bills - Patrick Mahomes - QB 13) Cardinals - Pat Elflein - OL 14) Colts - TJ Watt - EDGE 15) Ravens - Carl Lawson - EDGE: The injuries are a potential issue but he has legitimate first round talent and can wreck off the edge which is why he probably is untouchable for the ravens until now. Ryan Anderson/Evan Engram could be the pick if we are too uncomfortable with his injuries. 16) Vikings - Zay Jones - WR 17) Washington - Davis Webb - QB 18) Bucs - Ryan Anderson - EDGE 19) Broncos - Dion Dawkins - OL 20) Browns - Chidobe Awuzie - CB 21) Lions - Joe Mixon - RB 22) Dolphins - Jourdan Lewis - CB 23) Giants - Sidney Jones - CB 24) Raiders - Dont'a Foreman - RB 25) Texans - Evan Engram - TE 26) Seahawks - Taylor Moton - OL 27) Chiefs - Dede Westbrook - WR 28) Cowboys - Demarcus Walker - EDGE 29) Packers - Tanoh Kpassagnon - EDGE 30) Steelers - Kevin King - CB 31) Falcons - Ethan Pocic - OL 32) Panthers - Curtis Samuel - WR Round 3 Fabian Moreau - CB: A highly accomplished corner with first round talent who will most likely fall a little bit due to the sheer numbers of corners and the injury that will keep him out of OTAs etc. If he is taken then I could see Isaac Asiata or Howard Wilson being the pick here. Akhello Witherspoon - CB: Double dipping at corner might not be expected here but I think these guys could be the BPA picks at both these spots. Witherspoon is a brilliant cover corner who maybe shies away from contact too much but could maybe see a philosophy change once he's getting good money to make tackles and in our case to even get on the field. I could see these two corners developing really well together behind carr, smith and with tavon. Round 4 Anthony Garcia - OL: An interesting tackle prospect with some elite traits. He has great quickness and the ability to mirror edge rushers, is rarely beaten with speed. His major problem and it may not be fixable even in an NFL weight program is his body frame - he mostly plays under 300 which isnt ideal and im not sure he has the frame to add much more weight. He could be a useful addition to the right tackle competition - but i wonder how he'd hold up against bull rushers. Round 5 Donnel Pumphrey - RB: He's mocked to us a lot I think around here and I wanted to do something new but he makes a lot of sense. Running back help including someone with a twitchy type speed albeit maybe it isnt quite the breakaway speed we've been yearning. Round 6 Deatrich Wise Jr - EDGE: A guy who didn't have the greatest production but didnt show too many reasons why it wasnt working. He has potential as a late guy - probably projected in the 5th but I could see him dropping down to this round just because of all the combine notables and other guys who have more production this last year.

    The more I check out my favorite board and type away and read away, I'm struck by how lonely and uneventful my life will be when they yank away this board for good May 5th! I just don't see why they're doing it because I promise them on my future grave, I'll never ever follow them on facebook or twitter ever period! You still have time to reconsider and make Ravens fans really happy and relieved!

    why is that? tim williams is a legit first round, top 20 type talent who is falling 100% because of the failed drug tests, all it takes is interviews to make someone take a chance, ill put imaginary money on it that someone takes a chance in the first round, it may not be us, but someone will, and i would like for it to be us. corey davis, as good as he is at a lot of things, i think people are penciling him in as an automatic all star way too early. hes a pretty passive catcher and doesnt attack the ball well, he has faced more relaxed coverage than any first round wr prospect i can think of, i mean he constantly had so much cushion he didnt even have to work for separation. everything that is being said about corey davis now, was said about nelson agholor 2 years back, and really they look like similar players on film but agholor played far superior competition and showed more pursuit to the ball, im not into "X played better against Y than Z did so X is better" so i wont dive into that anymore, just saying that its way premature for corey davis to get all these accolades. and by the way, i like corey davis a lot. i just think his hype has grown to unreasonable levels from a select crowd on these boards recently. i think there are plenty of better directions the ravens can go at 16, id take williams, cam, oj howard, tj watt, haason reddick, marlon humphrey, derek barnett, and mike williams over corey davis if any of them are available, and im sure i can think of more

    There's some decent stuff there, especially the play review process. A centralized system is the way it should be done and allows for the quickest decisions I think.

    That 8 point move up was worth 40 points. That means, for Ealy the differential worked out to the Patriots giving the Panthers pick #132 in the 4th round. So, it really wasn't all that poor when you think about it. But I really like Jernigan's potential as long as he can show some consistency. Also, players tend to leave it all on the field in their contract year and I would like the Ravens to capitalize on that possibility.

    it was difficult to think where he'd go because he's unlikely to miss any of training camp - the hope for me is that he will be there at the first pick in the 3rd round because he has legitimate 1st round talent and wont actually be missing any of the season - that's why i allowed myself the privilege of mocking him to us in the 3rd but i could likewise see him not even making it to our 2nd round pick...

    Like a bunch of teenaged to 20 somethings he's clearly in love with pardon my take and thinks pft commenters Schlick is hilarious (i care more about telling than spelling) and thinks he's clever by blatantly knocking off of that character on here. Every misspelled word is spelled incorrectly the same way every time. Doan instead of don't?? You have to actually try to screw that up. And as you pointed out even when quoting names spelled properly he misspells them purposely using a phonetic spelling. I guarantee it takes longer and more effort to make sure everything's spelled wrong "the right way." Please guys lets all agree to block these people. Trolls exist for the reaction. I know it's tempting to want to talk sense into them, but you never will. They already know -- the stupidity is on purpose (some of it at least). If we block we don't have to see it, no one will quote so those of us that have blocked won't still be exposed.... And they'll quietly disappear

    So if d is your top prospect, then how does he compare to a and b? I think you're really limiting who we can take at 16. Not to mention that z is criminally underrated and could be a steal in the second.

    i dont see that with tim williams at all - he's a multi-faceted pass rusher who has shown (albeit in limited opportunities) that he can be a 3 down defender - he's 100% worth the 16th pick if teams feel comfortable about the drugs and the arrest - as for making it out of the first round... i dont see that happening at all

    I've already said before that I really don't like Williams' value at 16. He can pass rush but I don't think he can be much more than a pass rush specialist at the next level, just what I get from watching him. I don't want to get into it, but I can't see him as BPA over Corey Davis, Cam Robinson, or a couple of the other guys you've got on the board. I'd honestly take Watt over him - and I don't want Watt at 16 either - I think a trade back would be a much better decision if the board falls the way you've got it. Early in the process I really, really didn't like Smith-Schuster, but I started to change that opinion about a month ago. He's not the fastest guy on the planet, but speed isn't really the main thing we're looking for, and it's secondary to the fact that he gets open in the short field anyway. He would be a good Aiken replacement for when we need a reliable target within 20 yards. I like the value here. Magnuson in the mid 3rd is probably my least favorite pick here. Just from what I've seen of him: lack of strength is a red flag, his footwork can get real sloppy against speed rushers (just throw on the Ohio State tape and you'll see what I'm talking about, his kick out wasn't fast enough to catch his man often), and I don't really agree with your comment about pass protection, I think he's pretty weak in the department. Honestly when I watch him I only see a swing tackle ceiling, I don't see a guy that can step in at RT any time soon in the NFL. I watched Walker forever ago, so I will have to go back and watch him to give analysis, but I do remember that I liked him less that other options that'll likely be available at his position, most notable Jarron Jones (whom I think can be extremely good with some coaching up, the way he dominated Miami's oline showed me a lot, obviously isn't ready to go day one, but if developed right I see a very good player here) and Nazair Jones. I love Perine (though I hate how his name is pronounced, I'm going to keep saying per-een and I'm not stopping), great power and his balance is unreal. However his knee issues do give me some pause. Power guys with knee issues is a legitimate red flag. As an overall note - I can't see us passing totally on the strongest CB class in forever. There will be great options at our second and third that may be starting quality players immediately that I think have to be BPA. Carr is only a one, maybe two at most, year fix at #2 CB, and even with him we know Jimmy will go down at some point again putting us in a terrible position since we are still severely lacking in depth on the outside. Canady is an interesting developmental guy, but I think it'd be foolish to put our depth trust in him after only one year of development.

    No doubt in my mind that Ray Ray's a troll. I don't care how fast you type, or even if you're completely illiterate, no one spells like Mast3r Ch13f talks on "Arby 'n' the Chief." He also manages to go against a lot of objectively correct aspects of the Raven's franchise, for instance he wants to trade Flacco, and with his amount of posts on this site it should be impossible to support something so detrimental to the team.

    I like the idea of trading Allen Robinson for Jernigan but not trading our 1st or 2nd if the Jags are interested. Swap picks in the 3rd or 4th round will do but we also will have to pay Robinson top dollar next year because he will be a UFA just like Jernigan so l don't know how it's gonna work out.
