Ravens get their tackle late into the night!!!!!!

April 29, 2007 | Nestor Aparicio

The Ravens have given me the relief of being able to go to bed…

They dealt back into the third round to pick No. 86 to select Marshal Yanda, a tackle from Iowa that they clearly were very bullish about. ESPN lists him as a guard. He would be a right tackle prospect for the Ravens. 6-4, 305 pounds, big boy…

While Mel Kiper continues to talk about the Stanford QB and the Boston College guard, the Ravens led by Ozzie Newsome and Eric Decosta went with one of their old friend Kirk Ferentz’s guys from the heartland.

Good stuff on Day One from the Bellagio.

Lots of twists and turns…lots of FUN, really…

Am I a TOTAL AND COMPLETE NUTBALL GOOBER, sitting around watching the draft on a Saturday night.

God…middle age has come to this, huh???

The Ravens gave up picks Nos. 101, 166 and 203 for the right to move up 15 spots into the No. 86 spot.

Good value, I suppose if Yanda gets on the field and they certainly will need a tackle with Jon Ogden’s pending departure.

But there is now an OVERLOAD of offensive linemen and guards.

The Ravens are making a SERIOUS commitment to their offense!

I will NOT be calling Rex Ryan to hear his thoughts on Day One!!!’
LOL…
