Why wouldn’t the Ravens consider giving Pittsburgh their first round choice and sign tackle Max Starks? We obviously need a right tackle. There is much speculation as to who they might draft at #29. We could get a really good third year pro and force the Steelers hand.

The draft as I see itâ€¦
In the first round, I think that the Ravens really like Aaron Ross, the cornerback from Texas and if he is available they will take him. I agree with the national media that he may be a risk because he only started in his senior year, but he looked great at his pro day- he has a good backpedal and the good ability to shift his hips plus decent speed.
If Ross is not available, then I like a defensive end who can morph into a linebacker like Jarvis Moss from Florida.
The third choice would be an offensive lineman like Staley or Blalock. If they are not available then look for another corner and draft Arron Sears in round 2. Note that only 3 teams in the league have number one draft choices at both tackle positions. Though important investing two number one picks at tackle is a lot. In fact, New England has one number one-Mankins and one number two-Matt Light and the rest plus backups are second day people.
If they do go for a lineman in round 1 then in round 2 I see them taking Josh Wilson as the cornerback. Though only 5’9" he has great speed and smarts plus he could spell BJ Sams. But that may be risky.
Now for quarterback. If Kolb is available in round 2 then might hold off on the cornerback and move in to take Kolb provided they get the offensive lineman in round 1. If Kolb is not available I would wait for Edwards in round 4 or Tony Korrodi in round 5.
