Ravens Could Address a few Off-season Needs Early in Draft

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome made it clear at last week’s season-ending news conference what the teams biggest needs are: offensive line help, a pass rusher and another wide receiver.

From the looks of it, the Ravens could address a few of those needs in April’s NFL draft.

According to Ravens Director of College Scouting Joe Horitz, the strongest positions in this year’s draft are quarterbacks, defensive linemen and wide receivers. Clearly, the Ravens won’t be in the market for a quarterback, but they could use a wide receiver and a pass rusher in the early rounds of the draft.

In fact, it may be wise for Baltimore to draft a defensive end-linebacker hybrid to compliment standout Terrell Suggs, who is another one of those defensive end-linebacker hybrids.

You’re probably going to see a lot of defensive lineman go in the first round again,” Horitz said.
