Ohio St. WR Brian Robiskie

Ben S with the pick...

There are a few places the Ravens could go with this pick, including offensive line, but I think it is about time the Ravens gave the quarterback a weapon to throw to. For the past few weeks there have been rumblings of the Ravens trying to trade for receiver Anquan Boldin, however I highly doubt that it will happen mostly due to financial reasons. Haloti Ngata is in the final year of his contract and the team was forced to franchise Terrell Suggs in the off season so the front office would probably have a hard time paying Boldin the type of money he is likely demanding.

Because of the Ravens inability to trade for Boldin, I think that this is a great pick in the second round not only because of Robiskies value at this point in the draft but the Ravens need for a receiver as well. Robiskie is a possession receiver with lots of height and fairly decent size, and reminds me a little bit of our own Dwayne Bowe. Robiskie will provide a nice option for Flacco to go to, and has a great set of hands that will provide useful with a quarterback entering only his second season. Although not exactly a number 1 receiver, Brian will be a playmaker for the Ravens for years down the road, and will more than likely find the highlight real a few times in his career.

Now that being said, I must admit that I was very tempted to draft myself with this pick as another cornerback, however I filled that need in the first so I do believe it wouldn't go over too well if they drafted two corners in round 1 and 2, so I decided I should leave me and my very mediocre 40 time in the draft pool.

Round 1 is here.

Previous pick: CB Jairus Byrd
