Ravens take DT Jernigan

The Baltimore Ravens have selected defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan with their second round pick in the 2014 NFL draft.  The Ravens are staying true to their “take the best play available” draft method.

Jernigan was projected to be a first round pick but had maturity issues and questions.  The Ravens needed to replay Arthur Jones and Jernigan could be the player to do that.

Pearce leads the way: Orioles sweep the Rays

Just imagine if Chris Davis wouldn’t have been hurt. Would Steve Pearce show his face again in an Orioles uniform?

Steve Wayne Pearce, a native of Lakeland, Florida, has never batted more than 165 times in one season, and that was with Pittsburgh in 2009. That was the same season in which he rapped 13 doubles, a career high. He’s been with the Twins and Yankees and we actually paid cash for his services in June of 2012. In other words, he’s not a starter.

Johnny Football to the Browns is worst case scenario

800px-Johnny_ManzielThe Cleveland Browns selected Johnny Manziel last night with the 22nd overall pick in the draft. As I said here I think that Manziel will be a huge draft bust, now I am really sticking with my gut. The Ravens will get to play the great “College” quarterback twice a year.  Going to the Browns has to be a worst case scenario for Manziel who still needs to learn how to be a potcket passer and will play in the hard nose AFC North.

The AFC North is a tough division, it is where the big boys play and I do not think Manziel is big enough to play six games a season against the Ravens, Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals. The quarterbacks in the AFC North have to be big to withstand the hits that come in the division. Manziel is only 210 pounds, Joe Flacco and Ben Roethlisberger are both about 240 pounds and still have come away with injuries.

With the first round of the NFL draft now complete, it is time to examine the Redskins options at 34. The Redskins could go a few directions with the 34th pick. The most obvious pick would be offensive line, with Players like Morgan Moses, Joel Bitonio, Cyrus Kouandjio, and Xavier Su’a Filo. The Redskins could use upgrades along the offensive line, especially at right tackle, so all these picks would make sense.
