  • Mikedoobie's 7rd Ravens Mock - 03/09/08

    With the draft getting closer i will be making more ravens mocks so heres the first one

    1) Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie | CB | Tennessee St.
    There isnt much to knock the kid on he has great size, great feet, long arms and a good vert. What impresses me most is his ability to sink his hips and flip them in his backpedal and coming out of breaks especially for such a lanky guy. Is a true playmaker in the mold of his cousin and the only flaws i can see in his game are his level of competition and this he is frail. He will be given time to grow under Rolle and will be allowed to develop much like Antonio Cromartie did in SD. Could be a dynamic playmaker in our defense and ive fallen in love with his potential, not many small school players go this high and theres a reason for that, Cromartie could be something special.

    2) James Hardy | WR | Indiana
    If there is one thing we need to capitilize on in this draft it is the talented big recievers in this draft and is a dimension our offense does not have and could find great value in the second..This pick could be any of James Hardy, Malcolm Kelly who seeems to be dropping fast, Limas Sweed or devin Thomas..i would be happy with any of the four i just mentioned and all would bring something unique to our offense that really isnt there right now and i expect of all of them for Hardy to be the one there. they can all be legitamates no.1 targets and all are terrors in the red zone especially Hardy. His size will cause matchup terrors and Cam Cameron loves using big guys in the red zone and all over the field. This will allow for the eventual retirement/cut of Mason and complete our offense which already has tons of potential and with good coaching and some luck in the next 3 years we could be among the best. other ideas would be to take a DL like Calais Campbell, Kentwan Balmer (falling once again), Dre Moore. Ive always liked the idea of Erin henderson also.

    Comp. 3rd) Mike Pollack | C | Arizona St.
    Isnt spectacular at anything but is good at everything. is a natural football player on the offensive line. Is one of the quicker inside linemen in the draft and shows great knee bender which is one thing that is beyond difficult to teach. Can play G or C and is smart enough to pick up both positions. A technician of the game and leader on the offensive line, his intangibles are great and could be a consistent leader for an offensive line for the next decade. An underrated prospect and is the best C in the draft and would allow us to add depth to the interior of our line which is needed and justifies the release of Flynn. Also to be honest if it is him vs. Chester for the starting C spot i would give it to Pollack.One of my favourite prospects.

    Comp. 4th) Dominique Barber | S | Minnesota
    I have fallen in love with the way this kid plays defense. It is seriously with reckless abondonement and reminds me alot of Bob sanders, not saying he will be as good but both play a very aggressive game. Will be an immediate special teams contributor and will be a terror there throughout his career. Has more potential then guys like Jamar Adams and Jonathon Hafney and i expect alot of coaches and scouts to fall in love with his style of play. Is still raw and has tons of potential but may be destined to ST with his chaotic playing style. Needs to show discipline towards the play and not outrun and aggressively take himself out of plays.

    5th) Cory Boyd | HB | South Carolina
    Has great hands out of the backfield and is very experienced in catching the ball. Is a perfect 3rd down back and spell to McGahee. Has good size and will be able develop into a better blocker in time. With the talent in the draft at RB we could see a better prospect at this point but we will see on draft day.

    6th) Brian Johnston | DE | Gardner-Webb
    tremendous sleeper prospect. Shows a nice combination of size and speed at 6'5, 280lbs and a 4.8, 40 time. Small school prospect that reminds me of Jason Hatcher who was drafted by the Cowboys. Would fit well in a 34 defense and would provide for depth at a position of need. Has been extremely prodctive throughout his career and not many players can say theyve had 261 tackles 21 sacks and most impressive 52 TFL. Could develop into a great backup for us and is a great role player.

    7th) Shane Longest | K | St. Xavier
    Well im not gonna lie Srover is getting up there in age and can really make anything past a 45 yarder. We could use a youth injection here, Longest has a strong leg not as good as Coutu's but i expect him to go higher. Will immediately take over on kickoffs and would allow us to try further FG's. Smart decision for the future, i do like Coutu and Mehlhalff more but as said before think they will go earlier

    Thoughts and such...

    Who on earth did y'all lose last offseason to make you think your getting Comp picks in both the 3rd and 4th rounds, all I can think of is Thomas.

      Heres the projected ravens compensation picks;

      Third: (Adalius Thomas, $6.9 million, 16/15)
      Fourth: (Tony Pashos, $4.7 million, 15/15)
      Sixth: (Ovie Mughelli, $3 million, 16/7)
      Seventh: (Aubrayo Franklin, $2 million, 14/13)
      *could turn into 6th

      remember its all about what they get salary wise

        Do you know the salary brackets that determine these picks. I've been trying to find out forever.

          not a fan of any of the picks, TBH...cromartie is a huge reach at a big fan of his, and he has the look, but the fact that he hasnt played against premier or even good competition worries me greatly...

          hardy- i still dont think that WR is a need that needs to be addresssed at the top of teh 2nd, considering we have sunk alot of resources into the position lately and we have solid depth there.

          pollack- really? not only is it bad value there, but we just cut our starting centre so we can let chester play. not to mention if he goes down, brown can step in at centre and yanda can step in at G. dont like this pick at all, not sure if we will get a 3rd for adalius i think its more likely we get a 4th.

          barber-i like the barber pick...although i might be a little more icnlined to take someone like hefney, who can slide into the nickel spot and play a little man. I view barber as a more in the box safety.

          cory boyd- at this point, id be fine taking someone like adrian arrington here, i dont think investing a high pick in a WR is required but if its goode value down here, i think we go BPA we have a habit of doing that in the draft, especially in later rounds.

          overall doobie, i will + rep you for your effort (the rankings are key) but overall, i do not like this draft you have given us. i think we hit on 2/7 of those picks (and although i dont like hardy, i guess he could make 3/7)

            well imo i do think DMC is of good value at #8 and could even see the patriots looking hard at him at #7. He has everything you look for and only knock on him is competition level and he showed to be more then able at the senior bowl having a great week and was the most impressive CB at the combine in almost every on field drill and test against the top competition in the draft, he is a player who i see making the transition rather smoothly from small school to NFL
            Going Wr in the second is risky when guys there are other less risky picks available like on the DL. But he can add something to our offense that is needed, we have been looking for that big reciever for a while now and have gone through too many late round busts for me to want us to try that method again. Hardy is a guy who will help our redzone offense tremendously and imo that is the worst part of our offense we could never get a TD, we can move the ball just fine and Hardy paired with Heap will make S come out the box and open up the field for running when it gets to the goal line, and obviously we can throw it to him..I just think it is a great value pick along with the fact it helps our offense where it needs it most in the redzone.
            My reasoning behind Pollack is that im not sold at all on Chris Chester, yes i love his potential and ability but Pollack brings insurane behind him and could be a potential starter should Chester falter. Also im not even sure we have a backup G or C under contract and we need to address that because one injury in the interior can really derail a whole season and injuries along the line and with our depth a player like Pollack is needed in the interior
            While i agree that it may be more beneficial to get a roamer in the draft at S over Barber, id rather a guy who is going to contribute more on ST and with DRC picked early on we have enought depth to have nickel and dime packages in their without having to have a S come down and cover.
