Well once again, Taylor Mays has to be a strong consideration. For all the knocks on him, he's a great value here, and if any team can either teach him to cover better and/or use him a hard hitting machine while other guys ball hawk, it's the Ravens.
If Ozzie and Ed Reed can't do something with him, no one can. And the Raven's are insanely good at grabbing late round talent. Since 2000 with picks 24 or later they have taken, Heap, Reed, Grubs and Oher. Not a bad haul. By the way, Flacco at 18 and and Clayton at 22 weren't so bad either.
However, after the retirement scare from Mason last year, it's clear that their top priority has to be to get Flacco some weapons. And this is their latest pick in the draft since pick 31 netted them Todd Heap. Now that he's at the end of the road, and they are left clutching at the LJ Smith straws behind him, it's time to hope they can repeat that success.
The Ravens select the best TE in the draft:
Jermaine Gresham, Oklahoma
