- The Ravens have seven picks in this month's draft, but it would be moderately surprising if they only came out of it with seven players.
- For as long as he's playing in the NFL, there should be a seminar available through the league's rookie orientation program on How to Deal with Steve Smith Sr.
- "I had a little chitchat with him," the Ravens receiver said on "Mike & Mike." "He didn’t have anything to say. Get into the locker room, he’s talking."
