Assuming the Ravens Receive a 4th, 5th, and 2 6th Round Picks for All of the Free Agent Loses
1. Matt Elam, S (5-10 205lbs) Florida- Even with Reed saying he wants to play another year, I believe he isnt worth the money anymore, we let him walk, and we start a slight re-building process. Anyway... Elam's biggest asset is his athleticism. His combination of strength, speed and quickness allows him to line up all over the field. Elam seems to be extremely competitive and really shows up for big games. When he makes contact, Elam can deliver some huge hits. He is a threat to pick it off, as he possesses solid hands and appears to have good jumping ability.
2. Kawann Short, DT (6-3 315lbs) Purdue- Short has a nice combination of quickness and strength. He is strong at the point of attack and is a stout run defender. Offensive linemen can't push Short around, as he holds his ground. Off the snap of the ball, Short has impressive initial quickness to fire into his gap. He is capable of beating guards with his quickness and commands extra blocking attention on the interior of the line.
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.
4. Terron Armstead, OT (6-5 305lbs) Arkansas-Pine Bluff- Armstead is one of the smoothest offensive line prospects I’ve ever seen from the small school levels, and with his natural talent and reported 4.7-4.8 forty yard time, he’ll shoot up draft boards. He sets up on the move very well, balanced kick slide and gets great depth from there. But most intriguingly, they ask him to pull and make blocks in-line and out in front quite a bit for an offensive tackle. He shows great balance as he gets downfield, positions his body extremely well, and keeps good inside hand placement.
4. Chris Harper, WR (6-1 230lbs) Kansas State- He has excellent overall size, and as a former quarterback is pretty smart about route running. He’s improving his overall game and comfortability at the receiver position. Does a good job using his size to win one-on-one battles. He also has the speed to burn you down feild. As a receiver he definitely is capable of making big plays. Snatches the ball well and is a pretty reliable receiver.
5. Josh Boyd, DE/DT (6-3 300lbs) Mississippi State- 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. Zaviar Gooden, ILB/OLB (6-2 230lbs) Missouri- Gooden's unique athleticism has drawn comparisons to former Missouri star (and current Atlanta Falcons standout) Sean Weatherspoon. Thus far, however, he relies on his speed to be in position to make plays, too often taking false steps or attempting to run around blocks. He's physical and feisty, however, and his athleticism and experience at safety make him a potentially unique weapon in coverage.
6. Tyrann Mathieu, CB/S (5-9 180lbs) None- The unique attributes that allows Mathieu to be such a force are his instincts. He does a tremendous job of reading an offense and getting in position to make plays. Mathieu is always around the ball. The aggresive corner is a physical hitter and plays much bigger than his size. He has a real knack to strip the ball free from ball carriers. In the college game, Mathieu has good coverage as a cornerback. He doesn't get beat deep or allow much separation.
6. John Sullen, OG (6-4 340lbs)Auburn- He has played many positions on the offensive line, and has been great at all of them. He has great streangth, and hand play, for a man of his size.
6. Zach Sudfeld, TE (6-6 260lbs) Nevada- Sudfeld is very raw but he shows that he is a hard worker and has room to grow. Sudfeld needs to put on weight for sure but has great height, which can’t be taught. He comes from a TE blocking scheme, which seems to be a lost art in the National Football League. Willing to give up his body and sacrifice himself for the team. He also has great speed and athleticism.
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
James Ferentz, C (6-2 290lbs) Iowa
Brian Mulroe, OG (6-4 295lbs) Northwestern
