After draft, Ravens have two needs left to address

The Ravens filled two major needs over the weekend in the annual NFL draft, but they need to make two more acquisitions before the season starts to make them even more of a contender.

If the season started today, the Ravens would be favorites to capture the AFC title along with Pittsburgh, New England and Indianapolis, but another strong outside pass rusher and a proven backup quarterback would make them stronger.

The addition of top draft pick Jimmy Smith, a cornerback out of Colorado, will improve the Ravens' pass rush, but the team still needs a pass rusher opposite Terrell Suggs. Last year, the Ravens had just 27 sacks — the lowest total in team history.
