Mike Preston, Ravens columnist: The Ravens will say they take the best player available, but so far this draft has been based on need as well. The Ravens got another good player in the second round in inside linebacker Arthur Brown, and a player with good potential a round later in defensive tackle Brandon Williams.
Ron Fritz, sports editor: The Ravens addressed the defense during the first two days of the NFL Draft, and it appears they got much stronger up the middle. They still need a wide receiver, tight end and offensive tackle, so expect Saturday to be a day for the offense. It looks like they got younger and faster with Matt Elam and Arthur Jones, and bigger with the 335-pound Brandon Williams.
