Over the past five hours, I’ve been asked to reflect on day two of the Ravens’ draft. I think the Ravens, as usual, addressed some needs. Other than Troy Smith, I don’t know these guys. I didn’t know Keith Jackson, the former NFL tight end, had a son in the draft either. That’s why these guys are day two picks.
No, I’m not saying I won’t ever question anything the Ravens will ever do, but I really don’t know enough about any of these guys to question them, except Smith.
I don’t know where he fits in the Ravens’ plans. Will he really be a quarterback with the team? Will he be Antwaan Randall-El? I’m not disappointed, but I’m excited about the possibilities.
I think we all need to be fair to ourselves and judge this draft in about two or three years. How many times have you attempted to grade the Ravens’ draft one year into it only to find out that they know more than we know? This is what these guys do.
