csteuber 1,0OrioleWay: I don't think Talib will be hurt too much by admitting he used marijuana. I think it hurts Mario Manningham more because he lied. Talib is a top-ten talent, who will most likely be a top-20 selection.
csteuber Bej6789: It will cost them their first, third and maybe a fifth.
aaronwilson It's No. 38.
csteuber 1,0BlindGopher: I think scouts and NFL personnel finally had a chance to view more film on Albert and his ability translates best to being a LT at the next level.
Csteuber RodGreen: I think the Ravens like Ryan; they also like Joe Flacco. I think it depends on who they're more intrigued with.
FloridaBasedFan: I think if the Ravens don't draft Ryan, they will get one of the top-four; possibly Flacco.
csteuber MdTerps: Not really; it's almost the same.
csteuber 1,0OrioleWay: The only player who's slotted to be a top-ten pick who may slide a bit is Darren McFadden. But it won't be much of a slip. He's a top-three talent who will most likely be selected at No. 6.
csteuber Bej6768: That's a tough one... maybe they would trade a future third?
aaronwilson Do you think McFadden will have problems in New York City given his family background and his problems? Could be a bad combination with him suddenly being a multi-millionaire.
csteuber BlindGopher: I factor everything in when I'm conducting my mock draft. I try to make it as realistic as possible. Sometimes it's well received and other times people hate it. But it's important that I stay true to my beliefs.
Aaron Wilson: Honestly, I think McFadden is set up for disaster.
csteuber Bej6789: Probably a little less value, since the draft class next year isn't solidified. But every year a third round pick has value.
csteuber 1,0RodGreen: First off, trading Jared Allen depletes their defense of not having a playmaker. The Chiefs are in trouble. They have holes all over the place. I think they have to draft for need and they can also draft the best player available, regardless of the position. K.C. is a mess right now.
csteuber 1,0Bej6789: I think the Falcons will entertain the thought of drafting Matt Ryan, but I think they're smart enough to know that they can wait to draft a QB in the second round, and upgrade their defensive front with Glenn Dorsey at No. 3.
csteuber RavensCountry: I think the Saints will trade up with the Patriots and draft Sedrick Ellis at No. 7 and the Pats will move back to No. 10 and draft the best CB on their board, possibly Leodis McKelvin
csteuber 1,0FloridaBasedFan: If not Dorsey, it will be Ryan
csteuber 1,0Bej6789: I'd give it a 15% chance Ryan is available at No. 8. A team will move up with the Chiefs, Jets or Pats if Ryan is available.
csteuber 1,0RavensCountry: I think Ryan ends up in K.C. or Baltimore; Brohm ends up in Atlanta; Henne to Chicago or Minnesota; and Flacco to Baltimore or Miami
csteuber 1,0FloridaBasedFan: Two trading partners are possible in the first round, the Chargers, who don't have a second or third round pick and the Jaguars who may not find the board to their liking at No. 26.
csteuber 1,0OrioleWay: I think Godfrey and Porter would have the most impact for the Ravens. They're both playmakers and solid cover corners.
csteuber 1,0ChrisQ: That's possible if they're unable to move up to No. 5, but the Ravens could also use a CB and a OT.
csteuber 1,0RavensCountry: I think the Dolphins and Falcons will try to move back into the first round to draft the QB they like the most as well. The Ravens will have competition trying to move back into round one if they don't get Ryan.
csteuber 1,0Bilbo: Darrell Robertson and Chris Ellis are possible in the third round.
aaronwilson The Ravens project Godfrey to safety.
csteuber 1,0Bej6789: I like Cason, but he doesn't have the elite quickness I'd like to see in a corner. He's best suited to play in a cover 2 scheme. He's a playmaker and has good ball skills... probably an early second rounder.
aaronwilson They had a private workout with Porter.
csteuber 1,0AaronWilson: Godfrey has nice size to be a safety.
aaronwilson DeCosta said they viewed him that way. Also likes DeCoud. And Tyrell Johnson.
csteuber 1,0Bilbo: Kendall Langford? He's a good player. He struggled a little bit this season, but he has good upside. I'd like to see him improve his quickness off the line, but that will come with more seasoning.
aaronwilson Craig Stevens is one tight end the Ravens have been talking about. I would think Brad Cottam, too.
csteuber 1,0Bilbo: I think Crable will be a mid-to-late third rounder, possibly early fourth.
Bilbo2> I like Ellis and Lagnford with our supplemental at the end of the 3rd
csteuber 1,0Bej6789: If the Ravens drafted Brian Brohm, they could draft his Louisville teammate TE Gary Barnidge in the fifth round.
aaronwilson They like Choice, haven't said as much about Barrett, but they met with him at the Senior Bowl, scouting combine and sent Mark Carrier to his Pro Day.
aaronwilson Barnidge is another tight end Eric DeCosta has been talking about.
csteuber 1,0Bej6789: I really like Choice; he showed me a lot this past season and at the Senior Bowl. I think Josh Barrett is a stud. He was a top safety after his junior season. He had a lot of injuries this past season and didn't play too much. But he has great ability and will be a steal.
csteuber 1,0Tsizzles: It would take the Ravens first, future third and a fifth.
csteuber 1,0MdTerps: Molden is moving up the charts really quick. He will be a second round pick. He's a big kid with a great frame. He's extremely quick and has good ball skills. He's gaining a lot of momentum.
aaronwilson No, I don't think they will trade up.
aaronwilson As Eric DeCosta said, you only trade up for Michael Jordan. Matt Ryan isn't Michael Jordan. So, no, I don't agree.
aaronwilson I think they stand pat or move back.
aaronwilson They'll probably talk to Byron Leftwich and Daunte Culpepper, lower than 40 percent chance they pull the trigger.
aaronwilson I think Chad Henne would still be there.
aaronwilson He tore his ACL.
aaronwilson Hard to say what's left, maybe Tracy Porter or Patrick Lee. They don't seem real high on Antoine Cason due to lack of speed.
aaronwilson Offense, mostly.
aaronwilson No, I don't think Jacksonville cares. They have David Garrard.
aaronwilson They like him, but they don't think he fits their scheme.
aaronwilson No, I think he will be there at No. 8 as long as Atlanta can get Glenn Dorsey.
aaronwilson If not, then it probably won't happen.
aaronwilson A bump and run type guy like Leodis McKelvin.
aaronwilson Talked to his agent this morning. He's still hoping to wind up here.
aaronwilson McKelvin, that is.
aaronwilson Matt Ryan or Chad Henne would be great fits. I think Joe Flacco isn't as high percentage, but they love that kid.
aaronwilson I know Ryan likes Baltimore, too.
aaronwilson I could see them going receiver. They have been exploring the possibility.
Remember, they need cornerbacks, too.
aaronwilson Mike Jenkins and others could be there at the Vikings' spot.
aaronwilson Patrick Lee or Tracy Porter. They like Brandon Flowers, but they know he doesn't run fast enough.
aaronwilson Yes, I think they will.
aaronwilson I don't think Kelly will be there. I think he will wind up with the Redskins.
aaronwilson Ravens like Kelly, Nelson, Hardy.
\ aaronwilson They scouted him, but they are mostly talking Day II inside linebackers like Beau Bell from UNLV.
aaronwilson Haven't once heard them talking about Campbell
aaronwilson I know they like Nelson.
aaronwilson Lawrence Jackson would be a good fit.
aaronwilson Maybe, there would need to be a run on other spots, though.
aaronwilson Aqib Talib, Brian Brohm, Dustin Keller, Kenny Phillips, Felix Jones could slide
aaronwilson Jackson could also project to outside linebacker.
aaronwilson Porter can cover, he's tough and he has a good backpedal, good ball skills.
aaronwilson Dexter Jackson Donnie Avery is rising fast, could go in second or third round.
aaronwilson Him or Collins. They also like Zuttah and Schwartz from Oregon. And Sam Baker.
aaronwilson They like Rice, but they want a power back. They like Forte, Johnson, Hightower.
aaronwilson Already mentioned Choice earlier.
Aaron Wilson It was tough, guys are being challenged mentally and physically. Their heads are spinning a little. It's a lot to take in, but Harbs said he was impressed.
aaronwilson I thought Kyle threw better, but Troy seems more confident. I think Kyle is learning the offense faster.
aaronwilson It's so early.
aaronwilson I think both quarterbacks looked decent, but the receivers were awful. Clayton looked solid. Williams and Figurs were not good. Figurs was garbage. Dwill is healthy. Just looked rusty.
Aaron Wilson Scandrick visited the Ravens and could be a third-rounder. 4.32 speed. They had a workout with Terrance Wheatley, too.
