Due to my mega laziness I am only mocking the Ravens first two picks. All of this could change after the combine. Obviously round s 3,4,5,6, and 7 would have been nice, but frankly round one and two are the most important to me. I'll probably make a complete Mock post combine and after everyone has announced whether they will enter the draft or not. Hope you enjoy and I'm open to any suggestions.
I think our defense is clearly going to have to be upgraded over the next few off-seasons and in some way rebuilt. I think Ed is definitely at the tail end of his career and is going to have to be replaced. I really like Elam because he brings some really good attributes to the table that could make him a potentially complete safety. He's a hard hitter and makes a lot of good open field tackles. He also has the athleticism to be really good safety in this league.
Alternate picks: Kevin Mingo, Barrett Jones,....... and yes I put Manti Teo after his godawful performance in the BCS championship
2nd-Da'Rick Rogers-WR-Tennessee Tech/Tennessee
Assuming that we will be picking at the end of the second round, I think Da'Rick is BPA. Rogers would be a really good player to develop behind Q, to eventually take over from Q. Rogers is a Big, physical, strong and athletic receiver that could put our passing over the top. He gives you a decent amount of speed and will also give you that jump ball threat. He would be a very good threat in the redzone, and is a guy you can just throw it up to. To me this guy could be a beast if developed right and he keeps his prior off the field issues in the past. Reminds me a little of Dwayne Bowe. Deandre Hopkins would be my preferred pick here, but I highly doubt he will be available here.
Alternate picks:Deandre Hopkins(if available), Arthur Brown, Oday Aboushi(stock rising, so doubtful)
