A look at the Ravens players that they have drafted and where those players are today. If you see any errors, let me know and I will correct them. I didn't do in depth research on all of the players.

Oneil Cousins is starting?  Wow.

 

The most interesting tidbit might be that both Zibbie and Nakamura are out of football.

Considering the Ravens' history with wideouts, the Torrey Smith pick is pretty impressive.

 

Anyone want to buy a Mark Clayton jersey?

I remember when Gooden was being hyped up as Ray's eventual successor :)


Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. It has a nice sound to it

Suggs has signed. I've never been so happy to be wrong

Don't blame me, I voted Bob Barr:cool:

I'm not sure what is the point being made. I don't know enough about the league-wide draft results or Ravens' history in previous eras to make a comparison. I see the draft as a pretty iffy proposition, especially when you take injuries into consideration. There are 4 guys on IR on that list, and you add in a freak case like Sergio Kindle and that really throws a monkey wrench into the machine. With the possible exception of top SEC and Big Ten programs, the college game is not much like the NFL, so it is really a crap shoot. Maybe I'm wrong, but it looks to me like a fairly successful process. Newsome and his staff are generally considered among the top at drafting, especially considering the Ravens usually draft at the end of the rounds.

First off ANY of the players from the 2013 draft who were drafted being injured, i.e. Carridine and Lattimore should receive grades of UNDETERMINED. And stating that a player like Carridine "shouldn't be taken higher than the 3rd round" is just tenuous speculation AT BEST. Considering BOTH Lattimore and Carridine were considered the best in their respective positions prior to injuries getting them where they got them could be viewed as "genius" but only time will tell.
