With the draft a little under two months away, the NFL experts of the world are constructing their mock drafts in anticipation of where each player will land.
The top-five picks may be a little easier to predict, but when it comes down to the Ravens at 25, anything is possible.
Don Banks, of Sports Illustrated thinks Jermaine Gresham, the TE out of Oklahoma will be the first player the Ravens will grab. He goes on to explain, “The Ravens need either a receiver capable of making first-year impact, or a tight end who can instantly upgrade the passing game and eventually replace Todd Heap. Gresham is the draft’s top tight end, and if the knee injury that cost him his 2009 season checks out fine at the combine, he’ll get a long look from Baltimore”
He also talks about WR options the may interest the Ravens in the draft: “If Golden Tate should linger, he would be intriguing. And here’s another receiving option to keep your eye on: Georgia Tech junior Demaryius Thomas.”
In my opinion, I don’t see Tate or Thomas falling to 25, but anything is possible. If one of them does, I say go with them. But if they’re gone and Gresham happens to be on the board I’m all for taking him. It would be important to bring the next TE to Baltimore, especially with Heap getting older. Also, Heap would be a perfect mentor for the kid.
What do you think the Ravens should do in this years draft?
