Well, we've heard from DeCosta. He sounds impressive but we'll have to wait for results. Our strategy seems to be like it was last year.

 

Any ideas about how we can pick up a decently placed second rounder?

Roman knows, in order to stay ahead of the curve, he’ll have to reinvent his attack – at least to some degree. It’s always a cat and mouse game in the NFL. One team debuts something new and innovative (Jackson’s speed), opponents adjust, and then teams adjust to the adjustments.

No idea other than to trade back out of the first round for more picks. It sounds like this is a deep draft.

They've sure shown a liking for trading back and I don't mind that. I just don't want a debacle like we had with the Sergio Kindle/Cody mess where we traded out of the first round and took those two guys in the second. That was awful. And that worries me.

I'm trusting Eric.He said Ozzie's watched more film than ever because of his reduced role.

I think they have learned from the past, scouted well, identified what they have and what they need, and now have a very solid draft board.

All I can say is that I hope so. We'll know in just a few weeks I guess.

 

What would you say to trading Jimmy Smith for a 2nd rounder? I don't think it's a great idea but it's something to think about. Also don't know if we could get a second round pick for him. And I hate the idea of messing with the secondary which may be the best in the league.

 

Tough questions.

Additional info...the last time the Ravens traded out of the first round was 2012. They took Upshaw and Osemele. The mess with Kindle  and Cody occurred in 2010. Geez! Time flies! 9 Years ago!

I think Jimmy could have done that.

Maybe. Maybe they tried or are trying. His injury history hurts his value though.

At this point I would get what you can.  Maybe a contender will desperately need a CB at the deadline.
