Ravens news, notes and opinions: Addressing the team's needs and options

I’ve been among those banging the drum for the Ravens to take a pass rusher in the first round of the NFL draft Thursday, but it’s very possible that at No. 16, they're in a spot where an edge rusher might not represent the best value.

Texas A&M's Myles Garrett and Stanford's Solomon Thomas could go Nos. 1 and 2 in the draft, and Tennessee’s Derek Barnett likely will be gone within the top 15 picks, if you trust the various mock drafts. There’s a good chance Temple’s Haason Reddick will be as well, but I’m not sure I’d categorize him as an edge rusher anyway.

So whom does that...
