50 posts in this topic

The Ravens want to improve the middle of their defense, and this year’s draft is stacked in that area.

I agree that Cody needs to be Challenged if not replaced. I recognize only a few of these names being tossed around. This is where the magic of the Wizard of OZZ comes into play. Stepping up our run defence is an absolute must.

Get one! IMO, the Ravens need a nose tackle - someone who may not offer much of a pass rush but can occupy a couple of blockers and most importantly stand their ground - Cody and Kemoeatu were getting blown off the ball. Haloti's great but he can't do it all on his own, especially battling injuries.

Kemo and Cody should not be on the team. One had a mediocre season and the other worse. I do not see either of these guys playing to the caliber we have come to know as the Ravens D. I am hoping we get Williams with the first pick but Minter is not a bad alternative. I do have to say I have never been a fan of moving up in the draft as we always find great talent in later rounds but Alec Ogletree does seem like a very reason to this year.

Trade our second and one of our extra picks (compensatory) and maybe we can nab Kevin Minter and Jesse Williams

I agree. Cody, Kemo, they did not play like Ravens this year. I don't usually advocate ditching players but watching those two play this year was especially painful and disappointing. On to the next one...

T-Phizzle as much as I would to nab both Williams and Minter its not gonna happen... If we can land one of those guys I would be excited! Plus you cant trade compensatory picks...

Ozzie loves bama boys and I would love to have Jesse Williams in a raven uniform. I don't think Ngata would get so many injuries if he had help . Cody has had many chances kemo is old we need younger stronger players. I like minter too but we have some good options right on the squad plus this years draft is deep at linebacker very good value to be had in later rounds .

Trade out of 1st round and get more picks. Needs are DT,Safety, Center, LT and WR in order of importance in IMHO. Hoping A.Hamilton is the answer at ILB. Haven't seen him much but this will be the first year he goes through training camp.

I have been looking for Kevin Minter's highlight reel but have not been able to find it. I guess he's gotta be really good cuz everyone is talking about him. If someone has a link please share. On the other hand, Alec Ogletree is in deed a beast, and like the previous poster wrote it might be a good idea to move up to snatch this guy. The FS Reid is also pretty good.

I can't see any upside in scratching Cody going into his 4th year. Ditching him now makes a bad situation worse. Like Kiper said, "if you need nose tackles, you've got it all covered... in this year's draft." I think Ozzie and Decosta find their guy in the later rounds and I think Pees and Harbs will coach up Cody. Harbs says he likes competition at positions...there should be a lot of it at the DT position this year.

I disagree with need of a center. Wer just drafted one that has been mentored by Birk. He deserves a shot before we even think about going another direction. That being said we still have yet to see if Birk will be back next year (my guess would be no).

If he's still available when our pick comes up at the end of the first round, I'm a little bias but I would love to see them draft the explosive hometown kid Tavon Austin.

didn't we just draft a center I haven't even seen him play yet I don't think beyond preseason ? Cody needs replaced or ngata will never be healthy he can only do so much. I never see many people mention the linebackers we already have . taking one in the first seems out of character for the ravens.

Defensively this is our biggest need besides ILB, If we can find a good run stuffer, and someone who eats up blocks, that will help our defense a ton!!

we are about to cut MT. Cody get rid of dead big weight
[/quote]

Ravens don't generally cut their draft picks (think Sergio). He'll have the offseason to lose abt 30lbs and add some muscle. If he doesn't do that he'll fail in his comp for the job, languish in Harb's doghouse this season and be let go at the end of his rookie contract.

we should never draft players named Cody. They dont work for us LOL. I would keep Make over him so we can keep a vetern presence. And Add a Rookie that can start right away. We dont need to go MLB that early. We should GO DT, then DE, then FS, then MLB the OLB
