Assuming the Ravens Receive a 3rd, 5th, and 6th Round Pick for All of the Free Agent Loses
1. Matt Elam, FS (5-10 200lbs) Florida- Elam is good, but not great in coverage. He is a bit raw with his footwork, although his instincts are generally solid. When he has the right angle, he can be an absolute ballhawk. He has great explosiveness and really attacks the ball in the air. At this point, Elam is more of a hitter than a tackler. He is aggressive and always attacks, but sometimes can over-pursue and be caught out of position. Elam's biggest asset is his athleticism. His combination of strength, speed and quickness allows him to line up all over the field.
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/OLB (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. Aaron Dobson, WR (6-2 205lbs) Marshall- Even without a ton of top level talent around him, Dobson was one of the most impressive receivers for the 2013 NFL Draft that I’ve watched. His speed, power and incredible hands should place him near the top of a lot of NFL Draft boards. but sadly for him, he is not in the SEC hes at Marshall.
4. Nico Johnson, ILB (6-2 245lbs) Alabama- Johnson is extremely versatile as a linebacker prospect. He has played all the LB positions in Alabama’s 3-4 defenses which will help tremendously at the next level. Solid player with good size and is a bit overshadowed by elite LB’s on Alabama’s team.
5. Josh Boyd, DE/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/DE that won't cost that high of a draft pick.
5. Reid Fragel, OT (6-7 300lbs) Ohio State- An under looked prospect, because of the issues at Ohio State. Fragle is a former tight end who was moved to OT and has turned himself into a legitimate NFL prospect. The 6’7″ 300 pound right tackle will definitely garner interest around the league due to his size and athleticism for the position. Fragle’s speed is under valued, but he is a GREAT pulling tackle, and is GREAT in open space.
6. Joseph Fauria, TE (6-7 255lbs) UCLA- I personally dont think hell fall this far but http://www.cbssports...ngs/2013/TE does so... But he is extremely tall, which gives him a very wide radius to throw to…He’s athletic for his size and has a frame to add more weight…Can really catch the ball in traffic, has pretty soft hands. He needs a lot of polish in his game as a receiver and blocker…As a receiver he doesn’t have a lot of experience and could improve his route running as a blocker he needs to continue to work on his leverage.
6. John Sullen, OG (6-4 340lbs) Auburn- He has played many positions on the ofensive line, and has been great at all of them. He has great streanght, and hand play, for a man of his size.
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 (6-1 230lbs) Toledo
Quinton Dial, DE/DT (6-5 305lbs) Alabama
Chris Thompson, RB (5-8 190lbs) Florida State
Rashad Ross, WR (6-0 175lbs) Arizona State
