With about 17 million mock drafts floating around, you're bound to bump into a bad one here or there. But as far as the Ravens are concerned, I'm not sure I've seen one like NFL.com's. For their mock, they used a roundtable of experts and rotated the picks. When the Ravens' number came up at No. 26, Marshall Faulk was the analyst on the clock for the Ravens. He clearly liked a wide receiver at this spot, but Michael Crabtree, Jeremy Maclin and Percy Harvin were all taken. So who'd he go with?
Here is Faulk's bullet-proof explanation:
Nevermind that Robiskie is more likely to be a second-rounder or that Darrius Heyward-Bey, Kenny Britt and Hakeem Nicks were all still on the board (as was tight end Brandon Pettigrew). The rest of NFL.com's experts didn't seem to agree with Faulk either. Here's their banter:
Elsewhere in the NFL.com mock draft, Aaron Curry went No. 1, Mark Sanchez was picked ahead of Matthew Stafford, Stafford went at the 10 spot to SanFran, Pettigrew fell to No. 28 and Heyward-Bey to 29. Also, Aaron Maybin was the 30th overall pick.
