    Ozzie specifically stated DT, ILB, and Safety, even going so far as to say that some of the young guys haven't stepped up. I think it's safe to assume that we will be taking a Safety at some point in the draft.

    He is one of my favorite players in the whole class--been beating the drum for him hard ever since he declared. You can't help but be impressed by his tape, the guy has Gronkowski-esque athleticism and upside. He is probably a better athlete overall than Eifert or Ertz, but less polished and pro-ready.

    He's going to need to work on the blocking, but the physical ability is there, he just has to learn technique; Heap was the same way coming out of Arizona State and turned into one of the most complete all-around TEs in the league after a few years really learning the technique of in-line blocking.

    I suspect after he finishes blowing up the Combine that he'll be firmly in the 2nd round and only behind the 2 top guys.

    Yup, saw a few games of his and they used him all over the field and he made plays despite being bracketed constantly.

    Quessenberry clocks in at 6'5, 302, 34 3/8" arms. Not ideal LT measurements, but definitely adequate. He's still firmly on my radar as a mid-round developmental LT option.

    You are right. I forgot he explicitly mentioned safety.

    DJ Fluker measured at 6'5, and 339 lbs, with 36 and 3/4 inch arms. That guy is massive, I wouldn't rule him out as a potential first round/early 2nd round pick for the Ravens.

    Fluker is a monster and would be a good value at #32, but I'd be pretty underwhelmed with the Ravens spending a 4th top-100 pick in 4 years on a RT prospect (Michael Oher, Jah Reid, Kelechi Osemele). If he's the BPA though it is what it is, and we have a need at OL. I'm just not sure what that would look like since Fluker is not a possible LT.

    If we were to pick Fluker would you be comfortable with a 2013 OL of Oher-Osemele-Gradkowski-Yanda-Fluker? That's definitely some major run-blocking beef, the only weak spot is LT.

    Not saying I'd be pretty excited about it either, but as you say, Ozzie is always going to go for the BPA unless its a QB or a RB (and even RB is a stretch).

    there are more then a few Bama guys for him to look at... Jesse Williams and Michael Williams are the two I hope he looks very closely at.
