Ravens poised to contend


Recommended Posts

Two months after winning the Super Bowl, the Ravens are in position to have a good draft and make another serious run at a championship.

Even though there was a mass exodus of players in free agency, which began last month, the Ravens have made solid acquisitions by adding outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil and defensive linemen Chris Canty and Marcus Spears.

With 12 picks in the NFL draft later this month, the Ravens have plenty of ammunition to sign several quality players in a draft that most experts consider very deep.

"Canty is a solid, hard-working guy who looks like the starter, but if he isn't, he is a great backup," said Russ Lande, director of scouting for National Football Post and a former scout with Cleveland and St. Louis. "Spears is longer, thicker built and also a solid workman. With Dumervil, the Ravens have two elite pass rushers outside who usually make a 3-4 defense above average.

"Overall, this is a good, deep draft and I think the Ravens want to come away with youth on defense. Because of their history, I always trust the Ravens to do well."
