Ravens enter draft with air of unpredictability
Question of the Day
OWINGS MILLS, MD. (AP) - Trying to determine what the Baltimore Ravens will do with the 26th overall pick in the NFL draft is as futile an exercise as predicting the day the lockout ends.
Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome could select a cornerback, perhaps Colorado's Jimmy Smith. Newsome might decide upon a pass rusher or an offensive lineman, two areas of concern for a team that had no opportunity to add depth through free agency because of the labor situation.
Or, Newsome could simply trade the pick.
A year ago, the Ravens dealt the 25th overall choice for three selections in the latter rounds. The Ravens have nine potential selections this time around, which means Newsome will have some bargaining power after the draft gets under way on Thursday night.
