    AFC North - Top 5 UDFAs to watch



    Ravens got two on the list...

    http://espn.go.com/blog/afcnorth/pos...okies-to-watch

    Furstenburg and Gaines, for those who boycott Hensley

    Said Gaines' biggest knock is lack of starting experience, but mean streak, superb measurables, just needs to hit the weight room, could've gone 5th round.

    Furtsenburg lacks ideal size and only had 16 catches last year, but project mid-round pick and had 2nd fastest TE 40 time.
    .
    .
    FOR REED, BIRK, BOLDIN, RAY, ART, TEVIN, OJ, and BALTIMORE...
    SUPER BOWL 47 CHAMPION RAVENS!!!!!!

    "We don't make it easy, but that's the way the city of Baltimore is, and that's the way we are. We did this for them back home." - Joe Flacco, Super Bowl 47 MVP


    Call me a Special Teams coach again. I dare you! I double dare you, MFer!

    I really like them both. Gaines' size alone makes him a very liable candidate at LT. Obviously he is a project, but I bet Castillo is excited to work with him. I think Furstenberg could emerge as our #3 TE.

    I like Gaines a lot as well. Even if he doesn't develop into a starting LT, he might develop into a starting RT should the Ravens not re-sign Oher to a long-term contract.

    Yes, the Ravens took Harewood in the 6th round (3 years ago ?), but he hasn't developed quite well. Gaines, although from a small school, has great size and did have two years of starting experience... Bc

    Bold prediction, but I like it.

    Keep in mind, Harewood didn't play football until College and lived in Barbados where cricket is the number one sport. I am assuming Gaines has played football at least since HS.

    I like both. Furstenberg will make this team if for no other reason than to replace Dickson or Pitta next year without skipping a beat. I like his speed and hands and frankly if it wasnt for going through 6 QBs last year, hed like have been drafted.

    Gaines has a lot of things to like. massive frame, long arms (36.75" longest in the draft), and most scouting reports say strength is one of his biggest weaknesses, which i trust our staff to be able to fix more than anything. I doubt he makes the team this year. A guy like Jack Cornell that the team was high on last year and has had that year of conditioning probably makes it over him but he should be able to stored on the PS.

    Predickson: Dickson will be traded during camp for a draft pick.

    Really looking forward to seeing Furstenberg. I was glad we were able to land him.

    Furstenburg, Holley, and Gaines...

    I think there is a lot of talent there.
