Ravens news, notes and opinions on the NFL draft
The perceived fall of quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to the point where it's now uncertain whether the Louisville quarterback will be picked in the first round at all is not a welcome development for the Ravens. For players like Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Zack Martin, Taylor Lewan or even Eric Ebron to fall to the Ravens at No. 17, you'd have to think that a couple quarterbacks are going to need to go early. If pretty much all the quarterback-needy teams go in different directions, I think all those players I mentioned above are going to be long gone by the time the Ravens are on the clock. And that would seemingly increase the odds that the Ravens trade back into the first round and accrue additional picks.
