Mike Sando from ESPN.com analyzes the Ravens draft:

The Ravens used four picks in the first three rounds to address their defense. That included three picks in the front seven, where Baltimore’s roster ranked last entering the draft in total starts made last season. That was fine, except it meant the Ravens would proceed without adding any firepower to their offense. Baltimore and New England were the only teams to draft no receivers, running backs or tight ends. Of course, the Patriots loaded up on weaponry in the veteran player acquisition market. The Ravens did not.

“They have $20 million a year in [Joe] Flacco and got him no weapons,” a veteran coordinator said. “That is just strange to me. I guess they will try to hold everyone down on offense with their defense, and that is that. I was surprised [GM Ozzie Newsome] did not take the tight end [O.J. Howard] in the first round. But they do need another corner.”

The Ravens drafted Alabama cornerback Marlon Humphrey with the 16th overall pick.

“Right now, I have Baltimore’s roster being closer to Cleveland than it is to Pittsburgh,” an evaluator said. “Baltimore is so big on letting guys go so they can get comp picks. Well, they just haven’t been hitting on the picks well enough. There were four Alabama players sitting there for Ozzie, and he took Humphrey, which was probably, on pure talent, number four. But they needed a corner, and they drafted for need. They did nothing to address the receiving corps that is one of the league’s worst.”
