Kyle Wilson, Boise State
After searching through the Mock Drafts I found that two experts picked Wilson to fall to 25 for the Ravens to grab. The question is...will he fall to 25? He is definitely up there as one of the best CB’s in this years draft class, but you never know what Ozzie is thinking on draft day. If he does grab Wilson, here’s what the Ravens will get:
Lets just say Wilson’s potential is through the roof. He shows all the signs of being a good CB: instincts, speed, outstanding footwork and he’s very competitive. Wilson would need to work on his tackling and defense against the run, but he would be a great fit in the Ravens’ secondary. Especially if Lardarius Webb is healthy, those two could be a dominating force.
Patrick Robinson, Florida State
Here’s an example of how Pro Day can affect a player’s draft stock. Robinson was most likely going to go late in the first round until he ran a 4.38 40. But, even though most are picking him to go in round two, I still found him in Pat Kirwan’s Mock Draft on NFL.com as the Ravens’ number one pick.
Here’s some highlights of Robinson in a game he played against Maryland last season. Make sure to listen to the announcers break down Robinson’s performance
If the Ravens do get Robinson with their 25th pick they’ll be getting a player who is athletic, instinctive and technically sound on the corner. The only real knock on him is his tackling and physicality. I think it’d be a mistake for the Ravens to take Robinson in the first round, but he’s definitely an option for that first pick.
Here’s the question:
If the Ravens could get either of these CB’s, which one would you rather have? Or, is there another option at CB you might like better?
