Draft Prospects: Defensive Line

PSU 0912 JRH

Priorities will change for the Ravens as they have all but sealed the wide receiver positions with the signing of Anquan Boldin and Dante Stallowrth, as well as the re-signing of Derrick Mason.

It would be a bonus to draft a young wide receiver. Yet, there are more pressing needs at the Cornerback, Tight End and Defensive line positions.

The team’s defensive line could you some depth. Justin Bannan signed with Denver and Dwan Edwards has yet to be re-signed to the team.  The Ravens did sign defensive tackle, Lamar Divens to a contract a few weeks ago. Divens was on injured reserved for 09.  The status of Trevor Pryce has yet to be determined.

The two top tackles Ndamukong Suh, Nebraska and Gerald McCoy, Oklahoma will likely be drafted early in the first round. That leaves the Ravens out of the running.

There have been a few websites who think the Ravens may take Jared Odrick. Ordick is versatile and a solid defensive lineman.

    After losing Edwards a couple days ago, the loss of depth at D-line is scary. I wonder if our run stopping ability will ever be the same…

    Also, I wanted to update you with my new domain,
    All right, thanks.

    Yes, I have to agree with Gene’s assessment of the team’s need for a DT. We need a player that will wreck havoc with the rest of the defense. And as Gene said the status of T-Price has yet to be determined, we need someone like him (Price is very methodical and tenacious in getting to the qb), just a bit younger, faster and a more aggressive version.
