OWINGS MILLS —  Now that the Baltimore Ravens have traded out of the first round, they’ve got all day to contemplate what course of action to take in the second round and third round tonight.

 

Considering that the Ravens headed into this draft with only five draft picks due to the Anquan Boldin and Marques Douglas trades, they’ve now got more options to address needs with seven total picks following their trade of the 25th overall pick of the first round to the Denver Broncos who went with Florida quarterback Tim Tebow.

 

The Ravens currently hold the 43rd overall pick in Round 2 courtesy of the Broncos, their original 57th overall pick of the draft in the second round and the Broncos’ third-round pick (70th overall). They also hold the Broncos’ fourth round pick (114th overall), a pair of fifth-round picks (156th and 157th) and a sixth-rounder (194th)

 

If the Ravens don’t wind up executing another trade, here are some other viable possibilities for them today:

 

WIDE RECEIVER

 

Arrelious Benn (Illinois), Mardy Gilyard (Cincinnati), Brandon LaFell (LSU), Carlton Mitchell (South Florida), Taylor Price (Ohio University), Golden Tate (Notre Dame) and Damian Williams (USC).

 

CORNERBACK
