Sergio Kindle - We trade back and still manage to nag this guy! He was a top 15 talent and I have very little concern about injury, we have the best medical staff in the league. He will step in on passing downs, and be an awesome part of our pass rush rotation.
Terrence Cody - I think after getting mowed down by Cedric Benson(twice) and Adrian Peterson, it was a wakeup call to the FO that we need to shore up our aging DT's. Gregg is old and declining and Cody is just what we need in the middle. Put Ngata at the 5tech and we have a brick wall for RB's to run into.
Ed Dickson - Great vertical option at TE. I'm sure him and Pitta will be an awesome duo in 2-3 years. Might need a bit of coaching, but this guy in not the second Davon Drew. He knows how to get open and Cam Cameron will have many ways to utilize him.
Sergio Kindle- A great steal, I wanted this guy at 25, yet we were able to slide back to 43 and get him. He is everything you think of when you think "Play like a Raven" Versatile, intense, and athletic. I love this guy.
Terrence Cody- I love this pick as well, if we took him at 25 I wouldnt have complained. Ngata and Cody is so nasty, you wont be running up the middle on us.
Ed Dickson- I like this pick as well, it gives Flacco a nice security blanket who can go up the middle and still stretch the field. He is a little raw but I think he can come in and get some playing time and do well. I think he will get some time as a red zone target as well.
David Pitta- At first I questioned this pick because we previously drafted a TE earlier. But I am starting to like it, he gives us another option and a security blanket. He has the "Play like a Raven" attitude as well.
Arthur Jones- I love this pick as well, this is a great steal. W/o injuries Jones is a 2nd round talent. Give him time to learn behind Pryce he will be real good for us.
David Reed- I like that we addressed WR, I wanted Carlton Mitchell but this guy brings nice speed and return potential to us.
Sure he has. And that is why he will continue to not have any chances to see the field. He is not that good.
Really? When has somebody gone down to give him the chance? Grubbs and Yanda are two of the better guards in the game (certainly one of the best young tandems in the league) and when Yanda went down the season before last Hale was a rookie and Chester was going to get the first shot. Please, explain why he isn't good. He's going to get the first chance at being the center when Birk leaves.

Finished the post with the rest of our guys (Pitta, Reed, Jones, and Harewood) It's mostly info you probably already knew and videos you've probably already seen but I figure this can be a quick resource for those casual fans who pop in and don't know as much as we do :)
Last preseason Hale looked like he was on roller skates. I saw him get blown up repeatedly.
Preseason? Yeah, that's a GREAT way to evaluate a player. Regular/post season performance is pretty much the most credible way to judge how good a player is. In the preseason the backups usually aren't working with the other front-line guys so it's hard to say how they will fit in with our starters.
