Your First Round Disappointments (Potentially)

Same. It wouldn’t be ideal because we don’t need that and we have plenty of young players already there.

But I could at least get excited by the prospect of how dominant that DL could be.

Dominant in a 2-gap scheme maybe. Which is not the way a NFL defense needs to be built in this age.

I have the feeling, that once he gets an idea of, what he is supposed to do, he will be a completely different player.

True. I was excited by JJ Watt potential, but Watt isn’t very realistic, especially considering his lack of football awareness, let alone instincts. Allen Bailey was similarly athletic and dominant in college. I’m thinking Taven Bryan might fall somewhere between that extreme. And for a first rounder I wouldn’t want to waste a 5th year option on that indecision, especially considering we’ve blown too many top 100 picks lately.

True. Like I said, I wouldn’t like it, but it would still be more ideal than selecting Hayden Hurst IMO. I’d much rather add a Haloti Ngata to this defense than a Dennis Pitta to our offense.

Boy PA, you really took a beating. Hopefully you were at least cool with getting Orlando Brown Jr later on in the draft and weren't just outright against him. Bad day at the office huh.

Weren't you unaware of how old he was too? I can't remember if that was you but my brother had the same reaction, "Wait, how old is this guy?" (After seeing the receding hairline and cruel effects of the Florida sun on a ginger). Then I told him and it got worse. It must've been a dark 15 minutes for you until we picked Jackson, allowing some happiness to leak in lol.

Yeah, I was unaware until someone reminded me after we drafted him. If someone told me he was 25 before that I would've been even more against it. We already have enough receding hairlines for an entire roster with Breshad Perriman.

In hindsight we should've questioned the mindset of a person willing to walk around like he did when we drafted him. It was shameful lol.

If the Ravens had taken Moore at #22 and then Jackson at #32, this would have been my favourite draft ever. Two genuine playmakers to build a team around for the next ten years. Two guys with the right sort of character and strong personality to forge a real offensive identity for the first time.

Why do that when you can pick a guy who will be 30 years old coming off his rookie deal?!
