NFL Draft History of Pick No. 17 in The NFL Draft

Whether or not the Ravens stay at No. 17 in the first round of today’s NFL Draft is for now a mystery. Conventional thinking is that if there’s a decent run on quarterbacks ahead of them, Ozzie Newsome will opt to stay at 17 since the chance of a coveted player falling to them increases.

However, if teams in the top 10 or 12 decide to pass on quarterbacks, the Ravens will more than likely look to trade back and pick up another pick or two. A logical trading partner given the sibling ties is the San Francisco 49ers.

If no trades are made, history suggests that finding a blue chip prospect at No. 17 is anything but a given.
