      UPDATED: MESSAGE BOARDS CLOSING AFTER DRAFT   03/08/2017

      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 »

  1. Really? I saw one or two mocks projecting him to go in the 4th. I like his tenacity and aggressive play. At the worst, I expect him to be a special teams standout. He's a fighter that refuses to quit. The NFL could always use another player like that
  2. Looks like the Boulware pick flew like a lead balloon
  3. With the 24th pick in the 4th round of the 2017 Forum Mock Draft, the Houston Texans select: Ben Boulware, WWE Superstar Clemson University
  4. He sure did. It would've been a long wait haha
  5. That's very reassuring to hear about Mahomes specifically mentioning Brees at the Combine. Very intriguing statistics on that Texas Tech team. He definitely did appear to have to singlehandedly keep that team in games at times. It was good to see him succeed in 2016 without his safety net DeAndre Washington as well. I'm reference to the point about Mahomes having good building blocks, I'm I'm in agreement. I liked what I saw on tape, especially his ability to throw on the run, keeping his eyes downfield as you said, and how most times he makes the correct reads. Yet again, I also saw how at times he'll make those 1-2 "ill-fated throws". That simply won't fly in the NFL, but with time, practice, and the mentorship of Drew Brees perhaps he can make the correct throw more often.
  6. I agree fully with all the points you have raised. I think his ceiling is as high or higher than anybody else's, but he also has the biggest chance to bust due to the issues you've highlighted. That being said, I think being picked by this Texans team is a great setup for Mahomes, because he gets to stay in Texas and he can sit behind a Hall of Fame QB for two years and learn from him. I think Drew Brees is the perfect mentor for him too, because of his work ethic and meticulous planning. If Mahomes can watch, learn and be teachable, when Brees decides to retire he can hopefully step in and play effectively.
  7. Whoops, my bad. Would you rather me edit the post to put in 5.3 or repost?
  8. With the 22nd pick in the third round of the 2017 Forum Mock Draft, the Texans are proud to welcome one of their own: Patrick Mahomes II, QB Texas Tech
  9. Texans give: Round 3, Pick 25 Round 5, pick 3 Vikings give: Round 3, Pick 22
  10. Good move trading up. I can guarantee he wouldn't have been there after pick 25. I agree with you completely
  11. Freedom never sleeps.
  12. Oh, you're right. I thought it was a 4.68.... my bad. A 4.62 is still a pretty terrible time for a cornerback in today's NFL.
  13. Hopefully that 4.7 was just a blip on the radar. He appears to be faster on tape. I expected he'd at least crack 4.6
  14. Straight savage
  15. I like Jarrad Davis a lot. He's a great athlete and there is a pretty steep drop off at ILB after him.
  16. Thank you. I would've picked Lawson had you gone with Moton... I think you got fantastic value with that pick. Not too long ago he was being discussed as a potential top 10 prospect. Agreed on the versatility of Moton.
  17. Thanks man, I agree completely on that comparison. The Texans desperately need the OL help too. I like him best at RG, but given the health record of Derek Newton at RT, he may be asked to kick outside. I would be thrilled if the Ravens got him... I think he'd be a good fit for our power run scheme.
  18. Sorry about that... It's good to hear I didn't reach though. I loved his tape, and he's not really an underrated prospect anymore so I felt I had to take him...
  19. With the 25th pick in the second round of the 2017 Forum Mock Draft, The Houston Texans select: The friendliest looking offensive lineman in this year's class- Taylor Moton, OL Western Michigan
  20. Sorry for the wait guys. Had to weigh all my options after Kizer got taken.
  21. I was worried that you were going to take him at 14. He was the last guy left on my board for pick 19... Melifonwu was one I was bummed to see go, but I think Baker fits the Texans scheme better anyways.
  22. I really fell in love with his tape. He's a high-effort guy with a nose for the ball and he's a surprisingly sure tackler. He's got good block shedding ability, and he was listed as a LB at Washington in some news articles because he lined up as more of a box safety in most games I watched. He switched to the nickleback role at times as well. I'll probably slot him in at SS for now with Darrelle Revis at FS.
  23. With the 19th pick in the second round of the 2017 Forum Mock Draft, the Houston Texans select: Budda Baker, S University of Washington
  24. @ArsenalRaven666 pass your board along to somebody before you go to bed. I'll do the same before I log off, and hopefully we can keep this thing moving.
  25. Yeah, Fitz finally started playing like Fitz again that game. It was pretty sad to watch a whole season go down the drain like that. Not quite as sad as the Antonio Brown reach this year, but close.
