Just curious why people are afraid of other teams and un-group think? A respectful look at the pitt or Cincy draft hurts nothing.


Then start a thread on it in the proper forum.
A respectfull look is definetly worthwhile. Evaluating the teams in the AFC North is a must IMO.

There is a logical reason to do this. Just look at what happened to our Ravens draft talk thread. It's trashed.

Any complaints please contact the moderator of the Ravens board for swift, compassionate, level handed, fair, sympathetic, and just treatment.

The simple fact is, all this 22-year-old has done since entering the league is charm his teammates, win over his coaches, make spectacular plays, get better by the week and, oh yeah, win football games (now 7-2 in starts, including the playoffs). He has been a beacon in the community, with a natural joy about him and a positive energy you can see in the clips of his interactions with young fans at training camp.

Um, I know its the draft and he was taken in the 6th round and he is supposed to need some improvement in route running, but the highlight film of Tommy Streeter on the Ravens website was impressive.

Check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8Bu3538FdY&feature=player_embedded.

Besides being a speed burner who gets open it looks like he runs a nice Fade route for TDs.


Nice find 52!

He's not going to get that wide open in the NFL. I still think he's a project, but he could work his way into that #3 spot in certain situations...and do damage if they double Torrey or Q.
Hope he has a good camp.

Maybe titling it as "Ravens Draft Day Thread" might help then. The title made no distinction.

Guys, it's a message board. It's all going to be okay!

The Steelers suck and I'd grade their draft a D at BEST (offensive linemen? how boring), but this tallywacking is silly, and so very ESPN circa 2001.

In other news, I really do like Streeter. And Upshaw. I'm not sold on KO and a few others make me nervous even given their draft value. But I'm excited nevertheless.

I am loving the underlying sarcasm in every post in the thread shit is hilarious.

I gotta feeling upshaw is gonna tear it up for the next 10 years. Also half reports i saw have KO projected as a tackle for his size and reach but others say guard

"I've watched the Ravens' defense on film, and I don't know what's going on. It's unbelievable," Phill Simms said. "That defense is off the charts with new looks and personnel and guys moving around. I don't even try to describe what they're doing on TV because most of the time, I just don't know."

KO is a four year starter that plays two positions. A team captain with a very mean streak. He's a perfect Raven. As for Streeter. He'll get open simply based on the fact that Boldin, Smith and the TE's will get more attention from the defense.

If you need OL then it is huge. The line is where you win. Both Bmore and teh squealers needed OL help.

You're right he won't get that open but maybe the guy can get separation. Time will tell.

Upshaw will be a beast if he keeps his head on straight. KO has a lot to prove but if he can play LG, I'd feel a lot more optimistic about this draft and the team in 2012.

Just read this quote from DeCosta on the Ravens website about why we didn't go after Mike Adams:

Eric DeCosta:
Mike Adams specifically was not a player of great interest to the Ravens because of off-field concerns. We always consider moving up based on scout opinions and coaching evaluations. We didn't see any tackles in this draft other than Kalil that we would have considered moving up to take in the first round.
