Day Two possibilities

Want to know some guys who could be options for the Ravens on Day Two of the draft?

OK. I can do that.

Here are 10 prospects who might be in play when Ozzie Newsome and Co. are on the clock in the second or third rounds:

Chris Cook, CB, Virginia
At 6-foot-2, 212 pounds, Cook has a great frame, decent speed, and excellent ball skills. The Ravens like the Virginia cornerback a lot.

Rob Gronkowski, TE, Arizona
Gronkowski has a checkered medical history, but he is very talented. He has great hands, is a solid blocker, and could be the heir apparent to Todd Heap.

Arrelious Benn, WR, Illinois
Tall, fast and athletic, Benn is probably the best all-around wide receiver still available. He might be off the board by the time the Ravens are on the clock at 43.

Everson Griffen, DE, USC
Considered a potential late-first-round pick, Griffen has lots of talent but there are concerns about his drive.

Terrence Cody, DT, Alabama
The massive defensive tackle would add youth to the interior of the Ravens’ defensive line and bolster Baltimore’s run defense.

Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, CB, Indiana (PA.)
If the Ravens are looking for this year’s Lardarius Webb, Owusu-Ansah might be their guy. He’s bigger than Webb, but has that small-school pedigree and is a good special teams player.

Brian Price, DT, UCLA
Has good size and speed (although he’s about 50 pounds lighter than Cody), and plays with a mean streak.

Linval Joseph, DT, East Carolina
Joseph isn’t a household name, but he’s been on the rise lately. He’s got great strength, and could be an athletic body to put alongside Haloti Ngata.

Toby Gerhart, RB, Stanford
Gerhart played for John Harbaugh’s brother Jim at Stanford and would perfectly fit the “Play like a Raven” style. He visited the Ravens for a pre-draft visit.

Taylor Price, WR, Ohio
A speedy wideout with a good build, the small-school product has a great work ethic and good intangibles. Could be a third-round option.
