i can't wait to see which direction we go on draft day. i don't even pay attention to mock drafts or anything like that, Ozzie and the brass always go another direction than what we expect. In Ozzie we trust!

I never pay attention to mock drafts! A lot I feel are skewed by analysts who favor money for their promotion of players. I have and will always believe in our scouting team. They have proven themselves repeatedly. I see how this year will be any different for one of the best drafting teams in the NFL. GO RAVENS!!!

How much of these different testing drills actually shows how much of a football player someone is? Remember Tom Brady had one of the slowest 40 times and really didn't have a overall good combine and was drafted in the 6th round but yet he's one of the best if not the best quarterback in the game right now.

Will be very fun to see what happens this year, I always love watching the draft. Who would have guessed last year that we would trade down out of the first round for a pass rushing LB and trade up in the third round for a RB?

Mock drafts and combines don't really mean that much.

Need proof?

For some reason I love watching the combine I think it's cool to watch some of the futures strongest and fastest athletes basically apply for a NFL team but really the combine proves nothing

One thing I've learned about the combine is " What You See Is Not What You Always Get " That's where Ozzie and Company are sooo good

What happens at the combine? Ozzie comes up with a masterful plan that every team in the leagues tries to get their hands on prior to the draft.

Does anyone know why "The Combine", is always held in Indy? Why do they get the free press and become the center of attention, after the Superbowl? I say, lets move it around and make it more attractive. Let basketball land, keep basketball.

ATTENTION EVERYONE: As you all know Manti Te'o has been the hot topic for the Ravens in numerous mock drafts. He's decent, has good ball skills, and has good instincts. To be honest though I doubt he's even a first rounder he's pretty slow if you ask me. And they want this guy to expect this guy to replace Lewis? That's preposterous HE'S NOWHERE NEAR LEWIS IN HIS YOUNG DAYS! But on the other hand there's one player no one seems to be giving any attention but is a straight wrecking ball is Alec Ogletree. DEFINITELY worth trading down for. Check out these highlights and be the judge yourself reminds me of Patrick Willis....http://youtu.be/r7ZOXZcRZNM

Yea I like Alec Ogletre alot too! Kevin Minter is really good as well. If not those two go for a DT. Tavon Austin is the only receiver I would take anywhere in the draft mostly bc of all the skils he possess and where you can line him up on the feild just hope the Pats dont land him or Percy Harvin. I like Boldin, Smith, and Jones as our receivers. If we loose a TE someone to keep an eye on is Jordan Reed the TE from Florida, probably a 2nd round pick though.

Ogletree will look great in purple and black! I believe that he'll make Ray Lewis proud!

I don't think they are picking anyone to actually replace Lewis, We already have his replacement, Ellerbe will be handling that roll for us. But getting depth at MLB is a priority for us. I think this T'eo kid has got talent and will do well in the Pros, But I agree that Ogletree would be the better pick.

I think the most important thing that is going to happen at this combine is that the Ravens are going to reach a deal with Joe Flacco and get him signed once and for all.

OK then.

Tim Couch
Ryan Leaf
Rick Mirer
Todd Marinovich
Kyle Boller
Cade McNown
David Carr
Patrick Ramsey
Joey Harrington
Jim Druckenmiller
Ki-Jana Carter
David Klingler
Lawrence Phillips
Blair Thomas
Brian Bosworth
Andre Ware
Brady Quinn

The list goes on. And most of those dudes were projected to go in the first round and had good combines.

Does that constitute proof?

So that list means there isn't another list equal to or greater than it of players who had GOOD combines and made good on those projections? All there are is failed projections? Really? That's what you believe?
