      UPDATED: MESSAGE BOARDS CLOSING AFTER DRAFT   03/08/2017

      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

Here you go, my friend. Treat it with dignity and respect. Remember, it's a privilege and not a right.

 

Did I do good?

 

 

Shocking first pick

 

I do my best

Seriously y'all could've given me Durant and moved on, it's such an obvious choice.  Sorry for the delay, very busy today.

I'm going to be in the (very) small minority here, but I probably would have taken Durant first...

A complete coincidence that the picture of Durant shows James standing by and watching the dunk lol

 

I definitely didn't search for one like that  ;) .

I was actually considering it last year. The one thing that puts James slightly over the top is his ability as a passer and defender. Durant is one of the best pure shooters in the NBA, but James is arguably the more complete package. When you're starting out, a complete package is always a major plus.

LeBron is a more complete player than Durant and I consider him to be the best player in the NBA, hence the choice.

That's a very good point. I would have taken James last year but this year I think Durant took his game to another level. His offensive numbers don't even seem possible and he's quickly improving other aspects of his game, especially on defense. He took quite a leap there imo. James is still the more complete player but Durant is 4 years younger. I think, all things considered, I'd rather have 10-12 years of Durant than 6-8 of Lebron, but that may just be my preference.

I'm definitely not being critical of the choice. LeBron is the most complete player in the league so it's obviously still a good one. As I said though, my preference would be to take the younger player who took a major leap this year.

I can't blame you there. Durant certainly did just that, and I can't disagree. It's a matter of taste at this point.

I think besides picks 1-4 it's way better to have a pick in the back

I really wanted to be in around the 6 spot, so I could have picked up my favourite star player. Ah well, picking late should be good for building a solid core.

I had him chalked up going 4-5 picks later, but I really like the pick

 

He was a top 10, arguably a top 5 player last year and he's only 21.

I would definitely consider it since I'm a big Durant fan but I can't honestly see myself picking anybody else but Lebron.

Stm85 is laughing at all of us right now

 

I am and I was hoping he'd make it to me even though I knew it would never happen. It's a great pick. He's 21 and already a top 5 player. He'll be a perennial MVP candidate sooner rather than later.

 

Btw, think my core of Melo, Davis, Duncan, and Conley would have won it all last year?
