Who Will the Ravens Take?
I know it's pretty much a foregone conclusion that the Ravens will take a receiver sometime in April's draft, but I'm not convinced it will be in the first round. Believe it or not, the Ravens have several other needs other than receiver, and it wouldn't shock me to see them take a tight end like Jermaine Gresham or defensive linemen like Brian Price with the 25th pick.
Even still, I expect them to address the receiver position sometime very early, and there are plenty of talented wide receivers to choose from. I'm not huge on Brandon Lafell, but I'm very high on Demaryius Thomas from Georgia Tech, and think he could work himself into the late first round with a good combine. I also like Dezmon Briscoe from Kansas in the 2nd-3rd round range. Arrelious Benn is also a strong possibility for the Ravens at 25, while I don't really see Golden Tate being a good fit.
Here's a look at my top 10 receivers in the draft, with analysis, and a few others to keep an eye on.
