After a quiet first round of the draft in which they traded their pick at No.29 to the Minnesota Vikings for the 35th pick (3rd overall in tonight¿s second round) and the 98th overall pick, the Ravens will be on the clock tonight probably at about 7:15 barring another trade.

Try not to take them too seriously.
