Ravens only true needs are on OL, DL and LB. Rookies did a solid job this season and could break out the next including Tommy Steeter.

KO and Pierce were a pleasant surprise this year. That's not to take anything away from Upshaw because I think most knew what we were getting with him and I was on board with Tucker right from day 1.Our front office always does a great job of finding these "diamonds in the rough."

I really expected more from Upshaw this season. I understand he had limited playing time but for what he was given I expected a little more production.

Upshaw should be a rock on defense for years to come, K.O. has been dominant on the inside, I really believe Pierce has feature-back potential, and Tucker has been elite since day 1. Even DeAngelo Tyson contributed, and I still think some of the others could become solid players. Probably Ozzie's finest draft class in recent history.

Having more draft picks has proved as valuable as where they fall. Knowing how to draft and making deals for extra picks has proved very beneficial.

Once again Ozzie has shown why he is the best. There is not a team out there that would not want our rookie class this year. This is why we are competetive every year instead of rebuilding every year like other teams, ie: Cleveland, Oakland, etc!!!

This rookie class was incredible. Pierce is probably my favorite player but I am very happy with Upshaw's play thus far. Despite his low sack total which I was hoping he would have a major impact on, the Sam linebacker in our system is more of a run supporter and the Will is the pass rusher. I thought he did a phoenomenal job setting the edge and not getting fooled on trick option plays. More times than not he was in the backfield making that tackle. Bama taught that boy good and im sure he will only get better in all facets of the game.

Ozzy knows how to draft this just proves it he hits on at least 4 picks a year and he always finds those diamonds in the rough

I have a feeling Upshaw knows a thing or two about stopping the pistol offense.

This draft class has certainly exceeded expectations. It has been a joy, and a pleasure to watch these rookies grow up with the season.

Now, go out and bring us home a Lombardi!
