2011 NFL Draft Selections (Before Draft Begins)

Ravens Draft Needs
OT, SS, CB, OLB, WR, OG, C
Tim to think about retooling on the offensive line.
27. Baltimore Ravens Select: CB Jimmy Smith
Ravens passed on the pick for 26th overall and then took a player just after the Chiefs moved up quick and took a pick when they had a chance. Whatever the reason for the hold up they went with corner back Jimmy Smith. This was a great move for the player and he will probably be on his best behavior for a year or two. That may be all the Ravens need to find the Super Bowl as they have been in need of a talent like this at corner for a few years.
Fantasy- Jimmy Smith should start for this team early on and will make an impact for fantasy IDP leagues and will help the Ravens defense.
Draft Grade: B+
58. Wide Receiver Torrey Smith
Alright!!! The Ravens needed a receiver that could stretch the field and they have it with Torrey Smith. This is an impact receiver and should help this team in year one even with the lockout still in place.
85. Offensive Tackle Jah Reid
The Ravens needed some offensive line help coming into the draft and Jah Reid is worth taking a chance on. He could be a decent lineman in a couple years.
123. Wide Receiver Tandon Doss
164. Defensive Back Chykie Brown
165. Defensive Lineman Pernell McPhee
180. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor
225. Running Back Anthony Allen
