On the flip side, if the new guy is going to be a knucklehead, he picked the right time. If this had happened a week later, the draft would have come and gone, and the Ravens would have been left in the lurch. As it is, Ozzie and the Ravens go into this week's draft with 12 picks and perhaps the best record of success in the NFL. And as always, Ozzie shocked the world in addressing the team's holes at safety, the defensive line, and with the pass rush through the phenomenal Elvis Dumervil pickup since the end of the season. It would have been nice to still have McClain to count on at middle linebacker, which would have given the team a bit more flexibility, but I doubt they were counting on the mercurial McClain to completely fill the void. As it is, linebacker, receiver, and left tackle remain needs, but the Ravens will be able to pursue the best-player-available strategy that's won them a pair of Super Bowls. I'm crossing my fingers for LSU linebacker Kevin Minter. An undersized middle linebacker with brains. Huh? Wonder who that reminds me of?
