    Idk man, they traded up in the third round to get him. A lot of RB's that get drafted in the 3rd are expected to make an early contribution. Roy Helu springs to mind. The Ravens don't normally like giving their rookies a lot of work to begin with, but I guess we will have to wait and see.

    I don't think Helu is a good example.

    Helu saw the field more because Hightower blew out his ACL. It was a forced move but it did certainly pay off for them.

    Musa Smith was drafted by the Ravens in the 3rd round by the Ravens and didn't see much time when he was healthy. PJ Daniels was taken in the 4th round and I don't even remember him ever being active. Both those guys pre date Harbaugh so maybe things have changed but I still think Pierce is going to have to earn his spot if he's going to play this year.
