ESPN’s Jamison Hensley Questions Ravens Pick of Marlon Humphrey

Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama | Highlights

Why they did it: The Ravens continue their trend of building one of the NFL’s top secondaries. Baltimore takes the draft’s second-best cornerback in Humphrey after signing safety Tony Jefferson and cornerback Brandon Carr in free agency. It’s interesting that Humphrey is often compared to Jimmy Smith, the last cornerback selected by the Ravens in the first round (2011).

Biggest question: Why didn’t the Ravens address a more immediate need on defense? The Ravens could’ve selected two other Alabama prospects — defensive end Jonathan Allen or inside linebacker Reuben Foster — who would’ve filled voids in the starting lineup. It’s surprising Baltimore didn’t trade back in the first round and get more picks.

My Take: Is there any reason the Ravens never trade up?
