Assuming the Ravens Receive a 3rd, 5th, and 6th Round Pick for All of the Free Agent Loses
1. Alex Okafor, OLB (6-5 265lbs) Texas- Great length, speed and strength. He will give you 110% at all times. He is a leader on and off the field. He will generate a forceful passrush, help out in against the run, and block some passes. He is a physical freak and his game resembles Aldon Smith.
2. David Amerson, CB (6-2 195lbs) N.C. State- He is a very capable and intelligent player and has all star ability. What he showed in 2011 didn't just disappear. Amerson is like Patrick Peterson, just PP didn't have a down year and was an SEC guy. Amerson is a big ball hawk who attacks the ball in the air and plays to win. I like it. He had a rough start to the season, but he showed up in the FSU game. The NFL is moving to more bigger corners and adding Amerson would be a step in that direction.
3. Cornellius (Tank) Carradine, DE (6-4 265lbs) FSU- “Tank” Carradine aside from his already awesome name. He has great hand play, and un-believable power. He explodes off the ball, and his versatility is no joke. He could easily play the 3-4 DE or OLB positions. Tank suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Which will lower his draft stock to the late 3rd, early 4th round.
3. Shayne Skov, ILB (6-3 245lbs) Stanford- Skov is an intimidating presence on the field. Aside from his massive amounts of eye black, Skov possesses high 4.5 speed and incredible instincts.
4. Da'Rick Rogers, WR (6-3 210lbs) Tennessee Tech.- Great combination of size and speed, Rogers was a potential 1st rounder before running into some off the field problems. His stock will likely plummet due to this. If he slips this far, he is definitely worth the gamble.
5. Josh Boyd, DT (6-3 300lbs) Mississippi- Used to playing DE in a 3-4 on either side, as well as the NT position. This is the guy at DT that won't cost that high of a draft pick.
5. Jeff Baca, OG (6-3 300lbs) UCLA- A very underrated guard prospect. He is good in the run as well as in the pass. He lacks awareness, but that can come with coaching.
6. Tyrann Mathieu, CB/S (5-9 180lbs) None- No need to explain here. He can play slot corner, or safety and he can MAKE PLAYS.
6. Joseph Fauria, TE (6-7 255lbs) UCLA- Fauria has excellent measurables. He is freakishly big at 6’7, 255lbs (he could pass for 6’10 on film), and he has excellent speed for his size. He only runs an average 40 (4.82), but he looks much faster on film. However, thanks to that height, 255lbs isn’t that big, and he could definitely afford to as some bulk. Physically, Fauria is very similar to Jimmy Graham. There are some character issues surrounding Fauria. Under the advice of a Buffalo Bills scout, that’s why Fauria could fall this far.
7. Quanterus Smith, OLB (6-5 250lbs) Western Kentucky- Quanterus Smith is an underrated player who does a good job generating pressure on the quarterback. He's a very good athlete with the quickness and balance to employ a wide range of pass-rush moves. His best fit would be as an attacking outside linebacker in a 3-4 alignment. Luckily for him thats a system we can put him in. And in my opinion one of the best pass rushers in the draft.
Notable Undrafted players:
Dan Molls, ILB
Quinton Dial, DE/DT
Cierre Wood, RB
Chuck Jacobs, WR
James Ferentz, C
