RAVENS DRAFT HISTORY: Round 1

sp-ray-lewis-1996-p1-.jpg
1996 (4): Jonathan Ogden The original Raven, Ogden made his mark on the league for years. The massive lineman went to the Pro Bowl 11 times, missing just one season, his rookie year. There’s no doubt that he was the best offensive lineman in Baltimore Ravens history – did the current Hall of Famer do enough during his career to be named the best first-rounder of all time? GRADE A+ 1996 (26): Ray Lewis You might know who this future Hall of Famer is. Lewis was a member of both...

Another Potential WR Option: Andre Roberts

andreroberts
Names like Eric Decker and Hakeem Nicks have dominated free agency talks throughout Baltimore in the recent weeks. Both fans and journalists have thrown out marquee names that could be potential options on the Ravens’ radar. It’s possible the team uses some spending money on a big name, but Ozzie and Co. are likely thinking elsewhere. It’s easy to throw out a name like Decker and hope the Ravens brass throw out a big chunk of change to acquire him, but wouldn’t it make more sense to look at the...

More Doom in Store for 2014?

New York Jets v Baltimore Ravens
With the news of Ray Rice’s alleged assault and even Dallas winning the NFL Draft coin flip, it’s been a rough 48 hours for the Ravens. It’s been so brutal, the Orioles are the Baltimore team with positive off-season news. That’s right; Peter Angelos himself has beaten the Ravens in the “good news” department. To ease the pain a bit, I took some time to study Elvis Dumervil’s 2013 tape. (Hat tip to @SupermanRob2914 on Twitter) What I found was interesting and provides clues as to what his 2014 season...

BEHIND ENEMY LINES: Offseason Primer – Cincinnati

Andy-Dalton-sacked-Bengals-Ravens
You could describe the Bengals’ 2013 season in a variety of ways, but the term that seems the most fitting is “predictable”. On paper the Bengals might be a Championship caliber team, but the play of Andy Dalton was certain to kick Cincinnati’s Super Bowl hopes to the curb in 2013. Sometimes all it takes is one weak link for a team to unravel and ultimately collapse. For the Bengals to finally reach the promised land – or heck, even win a playoff game for the first time since the...
