Post-Draft Review: Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens finally addressed the tight end position in the draft. However, at least three needs look to be unresolved.

Pre-Draft Needs:  CB, TE, WR, DE

Players Added

Round 2-Sergio Kindle/LB - There's a saying in the NFL that you can't ever have enough pass rushers. Kindle should be able to challenge for a role as the team's third OLB and first one off the bench this season.

Round 2-Terrence Cody/DT - With veteran NT Kelly Gregg turning 34 later this year, the team needed to get younger at the position. Cody should be able to give the team a decent amount of snaps in back of Gregg in 2010.

Round 3-Ed Dickson/TE - The Ravens needed a vertical threat at tight end. They now have one in Dickson. He'll eventually replace veteran TE Todd Heap as the starter.

Round 4-Dennis Pitta/TE - Pitta is a natural pass catcher and runs good routes. What he lacks is the kind of speed that Dickson provides.

Round 5-David Reed/WR - Reed is known in scouting circles as a solid possession receiver, who can also provide a role as a kickoff returner.

Round 5-Arthur Jones/DL - Jones figures to line up at end in Baltimore's 3-4 defensive scheme. He'll help to give them badly needed depth at that position.

Round 6-Ramon Harewood/OT - The developmental offensive tackle figures to line up on the right side.

Post-Draft Needs

Cornerback - With two out of their top-three cornerbacks coming back from torn ACLs, this position really lacks solid depth.

Wide Receiver - The one area at this position which remains an issue is speed. If veteran WR Donte' Stallworth doesn't wind up making the team coming out of the preseason, a downfield passing threat still will be missing from their offense.
