Before I pack up and leave Ravens headquarters for the night, I thought I'd pass along some notes on the Ravens' third pick of the night, Oregon tight end Ed Dickson.
Having only two tight ends currently on the roster in Todd Heap and Edgar Jones, the Ravens knew they needed to bolster their depth at that position entering the draft.
They were linked to Oklahoma's Jermaine Gresham in the first round, but he went to the Bengals with the 21st pick.
They also were reportedly considering Arizona's Rob Gronkowski early in the second round, but the Patriots beat them to the punch there, trading up to the pick above the Ravens and taking Gronkowski at 42 overall.
So with their 70th overall pick, the Ravens took Dickson, who they considered the top tight end available.
At 6-foot-4, 250 pounds, Dickson is an imposing figure and also has impressive speed.
Here are director of player personnel Eric DeCosta's thoughts on the Dickson pick:
"He's very athletic," DeCosta said. "He ran a sub-4.6 at the Combine, which is very good for a tight end. He can stretch the field. He's got very good hands and catching range. He's a big target. He's over 6-foot-4.
"We think he's got loads of promise as a receiving tight end, and we think he's a pretty good blocker, too. He's going to develop in that regard. He's often detached from the line of scrimmage, but we think this is a guy who's going to be a three-down tight end for us.
"He's got a great guy to learn from in Todd Heap, and hopefully, he and Joe [Flacco] will develop a very strong chemistry."
That's it for me tonight; I'll be back at it early tomorrow with the fourth through seventh rounds.
Two days down, one to go.
