Yup and his release saves us 1.7 million against the cap. Frankly I'm totally disgusted at his total misuse and lack of playing time as a Raven.

No visits yet and I doubt there will be anytime soon. Ozzie has come out and said that he is waiting for the market to settle. He said they will continue to evaluate the free agents. If they like one they'll go get him. Of course if the price is right that is.

IMO we'll make 1 or 2 moves. Maybe a WR or RB. Bryant Johnson could be that WR that we pick up. He's from Baltimore and would love to come back here to play football. Maybe somewhat of a home town discount from Johnson. Remember this is just my opinion. Who knows what will happen.

Lito might not be a bad choice as long as the price is right for us. As for the third round pick, I think everyone is assuming we'll get a third round comp pick for losing AD.

if Ryan falls to us i dont see the chance we pass on him or trade or pick
maybe to the Buccs or Bears or maybe the Panthers,

the two teams the would take Matt Ryan before us are Miami & Atlanta
but i think both team will take Long either Jake or Chris, just my oppion

This is a great mock draft! The only thing I would change is the Lattimore pick. The first reason would be that he just isn't that good. He was average in college and will struggle to catch on with an NFL team. The 2nd reason is the Ray Lewis factor. We all know Ray would throw a hissy fit if the Ravens released his brother.

not really. maybe by some people to some extent. IMO last year was his worst and all the years before, he was a pretty good, feared pass rusher. He just had a down year I guess..

A Perfect Score
08-11-2008, 02:08 PM

Not at all. I think hes one of the more talented young defenders in the league. He was horribly misused last year, with ryan trying to get him to focus more on stopping the run then doing what he does best, and htat is rush the passer. He needs to be playing less DE and more 3-4 OLB, like he was in his first 2 seasons, when he became the youngest player in NFL history to reach 20 sacks. Hes only lik 24, I can see a huge season for him this year, but god I hope not or his price tag is going to skyrocket.

BigDawg819
08-11-2008, 02:19 PM
Suggs is a value to this defense, but lets face it without a pass rushing compliment on the line he's not at his best. His break out sack total as a rookie was with Peter Boulware, wow I do miss saying that name, opposite of him taking double teams, and his Pro Bowl year of 06 was with Trevor Pryce causing havoc opposite of him. This being again his contract year, I really hope he does more individually despite any circumstances, ie injuries, and gets a long term deal the solidifies him on this D for years to come.

I was just thinking who the biggest bust was in Ravens history and I figured it was this guy.

We never did very well drafting WR's in the first round thus far. Clayton looks more like a bust w/ each passing game. Way to inconsitent. Same goes for D-Will and his consistency.

Ravens1991
10-15-2008, 07:00 PM
well D-will was a 4th and I got hopes for him. I think Clayton will never be more then a nice #2. Then add in Patrick Johnson, He beat a olympian in a race or something, god was he fast but he couldn't catch crap.

But going back does anyone remember Jason Graham a RB during the year Jamal torn his knee?

He was a rookie and had a preety decent game then he started saying "I am unstoppable for a 2 yard game" and all this stuff and even Billick was like **** you are a rookie. He was decent but he came in overweight so we cut him. I will always remember him for being that rookie who talked a lot of trash.

Man if we took Nnamdi Asomugha over Kyle Boller but who knew.
Laveranues Coles was the only player worth it at Wideout.

Yeah definitely not. Mark Clayton was definitely the most polished wideout who's only negatives was his size. Problem is he really hasn't gotten even an nth better since he was in college. He was pretty much maxed out as a draft prospect.

Ravens1991
11-10-2008, 09:50 AM
back during the draft Clayton was a great prospect. I remember Torry Holt had a page and 1/2 of why he is the best WR prospect in the draft. I really do think he can develop into a good #2 or #3.

BmoreBlackByrdz
11-11-2008, 06:35 PM
I think the presence of Mason is what is holding him back, I don't think 2 WR's of the same playing exact playing style can succeed together without one or the other getting the majority of plays toward him. I think since D-Mase is the veteran and reliable is why Flacco is always looking for him on third down. I think once Mason is gone, Clayton can fill his role nicely.

And Luis Castillo? The D-Line was pretty good this year!

And don`t worry, the time for Mark will come!

SeanTaylorRIP
11-15-2008, 09:26 PM
I think it's foolish how most Ravens fans think Mark Clayton is a clone to D-mase and that without Dmase now and long term that Clayton will bring exactly what he does. Sure they have similar size but Clayton is not even close to Mason right now. You can make the excuse all you want that Mason is holding him back, but fact of the matter is that he is still a starter for us. Mason gets open and makes tough catches, Clayton doesn't. With Mason out he will even have more coverage rolled toward him so I can't see how it will make a difference. If he can't exploit 1 on 1 coverages on #2 and nickel corners, what makes you all think he will on #1 corners and occasional double teams.

trkaline
11-15-2008, 09:31 PM
Look at how Mason played last week injured, Clayton could never do that or would even attempt it...Clayton has done nothing yet, hes a little more visible than last year, but come on....I wasn't even sure he still played for us last year...

BmoreBlackByrdz
11-16-2008, 08:18 AM
you guys make strong points but Im saying all this about Clayton only because of how he stepped up when Mason went out for the 1st half of the Texans game. I believe if he can keep playing like that when Masons not in the game we will be fine. But he's gatta be consistent, thats what has been killin him all his career.

i really liked both mark clayton and roddy white and i was happy with either... roddy probably would have made more sense cause we picked up dmason,but at the time... you cant blame the ravens...
wat i liked about roddy was wat i like about clayton... both are talented receivers with good character

honestly, i feel like john harbuagh is a leader who had won over the locker room.... i mean, that list doesnt include ray ray... and ray owns the locker room, so he has the backing of THE man

Yeah, Im not really buying into Reed, Heap, Rolle, or Scott. If they didnt agree with Harbaugh earlier I could understand that but after seeing him lead this team to a 8-4 record I think they would probably change there thoughts on him. I did hear however McAlister and McGahee never liked Harbaugh and didnt show that they were committed to the team and there new philosphy. I can believe McAlister because hes now on IR and even before that, he didnt play in all the games. I do think he might be done as a Raven. In my opinion, I think Harbaughs way of coaching is a great way to approach the game. They focus on nothing but there opponent for the upcoming week. They don't dwell over losses and overjoy on there wins, no matter how close the game was for how much they dominated. They simply put it behind them and move on. I think it has worked great and will continue to do so. I can't see how players wouldnt be happy with it.

They don't dwell over losses and overjoy on there wins, no matter how close the game was for how much they dominated. They simply put it behind them and move on. I think it has worked great and will continue to do so. I can't see how players wouldnt be happy with it.

this approach is the reason why, IMO, we've dominated all the weak teams we've played.

^ Yeah, Harbaughs a smart guy, this is the NFL, and any given day an NFL team can beat ya. He realizes that and makes it known throughout the whole team. Im sure we will not overlook Washington 1 bit. I love Harbaughs philosiphy. Maybe thats what Ozzie and Steve saw in him that made them sign him as HC.

Times change and people change. My only stipulation for Joe was to limit the turnovers, and since he seems content on that then I'll hold up my end and root for the kid.

BACK UP QB??

Who are we going to bring in to play behind Flacco besides Troy? I think someone like Leftwitch or maybe even a Brad Johnson wouldn't be a bad choice? Bringing in a guy like we had last year, Bouman, is a waste. It would be nice to bring in someone that has either been on a winning team or played in the playoffs or a super bowl to back him up. That way we at least have some veteran influence on that position.

Where at? All the quotes from Ozzie and the rest of the staff have stated that Oher will be battling Terry and Anderson for the starting RT spot...

http://www.baltimoreravens.com/News/Articles/2009/04/Oher_Affects_O-Line.aspx

Added Harbaugh: “He’s going to go compete for the starting job, and I don’t think that’s any major statement because that’s what all our guys are going to do. And it’s going to be tough. We have a really good right tackle right now in Willie Anderson, and I think in some ways this pick takes pressure off of Willie, too.

Its funny though, throughout Oher's life, he's been protecting "the blind side" His own famous biograhpy is named "The Blind Side" and right when he gets to the pros, he's playing RT. hehe, I doubt he cares at all though, he's just 1 of those guys that wanna play and get better no matter what.

worst case scenario is say Oher doesnt transition to RT. We can have this as our o-line.

RG-Grubbs
RT-Yanda

I don't really like Yanda at Right tackle. I think he could definetly play it, but I dunno, I think he could be great at Guard. But I doubt Oher has trouble transitioning to RT. I hope we can get a good replacement for Birk next year. Center is the only missing piece to our o-line.

yeah, he was asking for more than he deserved. If he played guard, then sure give the man his hard earned cash. But he played Center for us, and Ozzie saw him as our Center for the future, and it made no sense to pay him Guard money. Especially since we've got guys like Suggs, Gaither, and Ngata to sign.

I'd take Dez Bryant, Arrelious Benn, and Demaryius Thomas as prospects any day over him. And then considering Crabtree would be out of football for a year, played in a gimmicky offense, and obviously has ego issues, I'd probably bet on Marshawn Gilyard, Damian Williams, and even Dezmon Briscoe as safer picks. Heck Jermaine Gresham could be a real weapon for us.

In my opinion Jermaine Gresham or bust next year!!!

But seriously I wouldn't put Crabtree in the top ten of next years rankings. Not to mention he wont sign for a couple hundred thousand less than DHB, what is he gonna want when he goes in rd 4 next year? He's never gonna sign, he is wasting his golden ticket in life, and I love watching him ruin himself.

Ravens next year I say the big board Top 3 should be....

1. Jermaine Gresham
2. Dez Bryant
3. Terrance Cody

SeanTaylorRIP
09-06-2009, 06:55 PM
I think Sergio Kindle would be nasty on the Ravens. Anyways as for wideouts I'd give Benn the slight edge over Bryant. Bryant is definitely the better vertical threat which is important to give Flacco but Benn is a better combo of some vertical threat but also the ability to take a 2 yard pass and make it a 15 yard gain ala Anquan Boldin.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2009/10/19/jared-allen-responds-to-michael-oher/

After Sunday's game between the Vikings and Ravens, Baltimore rookie tackle Michael Oher had some surprising words regarding a certain mullet-headed, crazy-ass, calf-roping defensive end named Jared Allen.

"There is nothing really special about him," Oher said. "I think he found out I'm an OK player. Guy makes like $100 million. I think I did all right."

Allen responded during Monday's After Party on FOXSports.com, with Jay Glazer.

"Well that's just some idiot trying to talk himself up," Allen said. "I beat that dude like a red-headed stepchild, let's be honest. If he was so good why did they have to chip me all day? Ask him that.

"That's just a rookie trying to build his self-confidence up. Besides, you lost and your quarterback spent his whole day on the back of his head until the fourth quarter. That guy [Oher] will watch film today and realize. Everybody else in the world saw me abuse him."

So, Im running the Ravens yet again in the forum mock. I know my last draft wasnt popular, Im hoping I receive better reactions this time around. First order of business was an interdivision trade with the Bengals.

Ravens Receive:
Chris Henry

Bengals Receive:
Todd Heap
6th Rounder


Thoughts?

Yuck. Unless you plan on going after a TE early in the draft, we have none at the position.

We are rocking LJ Smith!

No, but I did plan on targeting a TE early if the opportunity presented itself. I felt Henry could definitely start for us, and regardless of his attitude issues, hes a talent. I gave up an aging TE for a young receiver coming into his own. I dunno, I felt like it was a good trade.

Ok, here is the newest development in the Forum Mock:

Baltimore gets:
Detroit's 1st round pick (16 via San Diego)Detroit gets:
S, Dawan Landry
Baltimore's 2nd round pick (49)
Baltimore's 3rd round pick (81)
I now have back to back first rounders, 16/17. Probably gunna trade down out of one of them, but looking to pick up a WR/CB with the other, depending on who is available. This leaves Nakamura or Zbikowski to start at the S position. Thoughts?

Well make sure Taylor Mays isn't still available first. Then after that if you could land say Dez+Haden or something like that, than it would be golden. Also if the CB or WR value isn't there don't reach on someone like Gresham look at an impact player maybe like a Kindle or Rolando McClain to eventually replace Ray Lewis. IMO none of the senior WR's are worth using the 17th pick for if the underclassmen are gone. Try to trade down.

I dunno how popular this move will be, but this is the most recent move I made in the forum mock:

Ravens Receive:
CB Champ Bailey
TE Daniel Graham
7th Rounder

Broncos Receive:
G Chris Chester
DE Trevor Pryce
4th Rounder (2010)

My reasoning: Ive never been impressed with Chester, even at G. I like Yanda in the position, and I dont feel like we lose anything by giving up Chester. Pryce, as you guys stated, is very close to being done, and Edwards has been getting more time then him recently anyways. Bailey isnt the corner he once was, but hes still top 5 in the NFL IMO and has at least 3 or 4 good years left in him. Graham gives us an upgrade at TE, and since I traded Heap, we needed that. Hes an excellent blocker, one of the best in the NFL, and a capable receiver. This trade gives me alot more flexibility with my 2 first round picks (16 and 17). So my new acquisitions:

WR Chris Henry
TE Daniel Graham
CB Champ Bailey

Losses:

TE Todd Heap
G Chris Chester
DE Trevor Pryce

Ok, so, Forum Mock over! Here is what I did.

Acquisitions:

WR Chris Henry
TE Daniel Graham
CB Champ Bailey

Losses:

TE Todd Heap
G Chris Chester
DE Trevor Pryce
S Dawan Landry
CB Chris Carr

Draft:
1 (14)- Sergio Kindle, DE/OLB, Texas
2 (35)- Terrence Cody, DT, Alabama
2 (45)- Golden Tate, WR, Notre Dame


Personally, I loved what I did. Cody and Ngata on a Dline is beastly, and Kindle would absolutely dominate as a Raven. Tate is a bit rough around the edges, but of all the WR prospects I looked at game tape wise, I liked him most. I unloaded some older players, added some new weapons for Flacco, and shored up the defense. Thinking overall, it was really solid.

I agree with everyone about drafting Kindle. I think we could have gone elsewhere. Also, I kinda think Chester should not have been traded. I know Yanda is a capable replacement, but moving him up to a starter destroys our depth. I think you should've left the O-line alone. They are one of the best in the league.

As for defense. I LOVE the d-line. With McKinney, Gregg, Bannan, and Pryce all in a rotation, that lineup is SICK. And I think if we traded Landry away, wouldn't Zbikowski be the starter? I thought he was Landry's backup and Nakamura was Ed's.

Overall, it was a good job, I just don't like how you messed with the o-line :D If it ain't broke, don't fix it :) But nice work.

Saints just signed Chris McAlister, he last played with you guys so I figured I'd ask. Do you think he has anything left in the tank? Obviously he's not the same player from years prior... but I figure he's a smart, instinctual player who knows the position and if he can get back up to the speed of the game he can contribute positively in a limited role... I don't think we'll depend on him as a starter but rather contribute in the Nickel package, and multiple Defensive Back formations.

From all accounts I have heard (which should be taken with a grain of salt) CMac has personal issues with a few people in the organization, a few guys on the team, and also has a substance abuse problem. I can't say we couldn't use his play on the field, but I don't know if his play would be substantial enough to outweigh the chemistry issues it would create, if said accounts are true.

I hate to say it but I am starting to think Gaither wont be back.

-Since we have Oher at LT now I see us only offering Gaither RT money. He will want LT money.

-Oniel Cousins has looked good at RT so far, and Yanda has the ability to play RT if necessary, both have looked solid and better at RT so its not like if Gaither left we would have a gaping hole at RT

-I just have a gut feeling about this


I hope he doesnt leave, we will be letting go the best tackle combo for the next 10 years if Gaither leaves. Also I feel we will go to a pass happy offense a tackle combo like that is priceless but I am getting nervous Gaither wont be back.

there have been many people saying what you are, but Jonathan Ogden said, he sees the Ravens moving Gaither to the right side, mainly because Oher looks so much better than Gaither at LT

I mean no lie, but Gaither have played pretty mediocre this year. Don't know if it's the injuries or what, all I will say is that Oher is clearly outplaying him.

Now, whether the Ravens let him go is beyond my control, but I can't see them doing it. They drafted Oher for the specific reason to pair him with Gaither and shut down Pittsburgh's Woodley and Harrison. Getting rid of Gaither would make little sense.

However, I do see them trying to move Gaither to the right side as a financial move. Ogden said he would be a better fit there anyways because at 6-9 338, he is a natural mauler in the run game.

He "should" be a natural mauler in the run game. I haven't seen him have the power to do that yet though.

IMO he's more of a LT than a RT, and it's not even close. He definitely won't accept RT money, not with Rosenhaus as his agent. It would be a terrible mistake to let him go, these days you need two pass-protectors on the outside. Sure Cousins has played well, but against the Lions and Bears? He can't control who he's played against, but at the same time he hasn't played against anybody remotely good at getting a pass-rush.
