The last time Ravens traded out of top 8 was to get Flacco because he wasn't a good value there
and they saved the owner millions by getting the guy they coveted in the lower first round #18 to
be exact and that was trading back up from #26 where they originally went down from.
Jamal Lewis was a top 6 pick and the Ravens won the SB the next year. JO was drafted very
high and was a corner stone to that SB team.
Nobody will be there as good as the impact players that will be there at #6.
There will be some coveted impact players at #6 so it doesn't make sense to move down but
Ozzie only does that when there's nobody on the board he likes in the 1st.
Mel says Ramsey won't be one and won't slip past the Jags and McShay says the same. If
they take Bosa, then Ramsey slips to us and you jump on him. So Kiper has us getting
Bosa perhaps the best pass rusher from the edge in the draft but Mel says Ozzie won't even sprint
to the podium to call Bosa's name if there because of Myles Jack, Buckner, Hargreaves and Ronnie Stanley
will also be there
That's because he has SD drafting Buckner who is perfect for their and our 3-4 defense and can
switch to 4-3 and cover.
Jack from UCLA is another rusher that could go in the top 6 for the Ravens to consider even
though he missed 9 games with injury. He'll shoot up to top 8 if his combines numbers are good.
Hargreaves would be the next guy after Bosa for the Ravens to consider as the most pure cover
guy in the draft and he'll be there but reports say he might get pushed and bumped around by
the bigger WRs like AJ Green.
And many mocks have Ronnie Stanley as our pick since Monroe will probably be cut and Ravens
can save about $6M but that would be the pick only if KO leaves and many mocks have Stanley
going in the first 3 rounds behind LT Tonsil anyway.
Two LTs will probably be drafted before any of the pass rushers and that could leave Bosa, Hargreaves, Jack or Spence for us. Man, I'd do cartwheels with Bosa.
