Five for Friday: Draft prospects who could fall to the Ravens
With T-minute six days and counting until the 2011 NFL draft, the Ravens are doing last-minute tinkering with their draft board. At Tuesday's draft luncheon, GM Ozzie Newsome said the Ravens, who have the 26th pick in the draft, must have their top 26 players on the board ready to go should they hang on to their first-round pick this year. If there is an early run at one position -- quarterback, perhaps? -- a top-20 player could fall into the Ravens' lap late in the first round a la offensive tackle Michael Oher two years ago.

Gabe Carimi, OT, Wisconsin
A key member of the Badgers' bulldozing line, Carimi won the 2010 Outland Trophy, which is awarded to the nation's top lineman.

Scouts Inc. ranking: 22th.
