The Ravens top three draft needs
The 2014 NFL draft is days away and the Baltimore Ravens still have some spots to fill on their depth chart. The Ravens are still looking for a right tackle and a free safety, they are lacking true starters at those positions.
Not included on this list is the fact the Ravens need to draft a running back. I hope the Ravens select Towson Tigers running back Terrance West at some point in the draft. This is my list of the top three needs.
1. Right Tackle: The Ravens may not select a tackle in the first round because they always look for best player available but they need to within the first three. They need to look for a tackle that can start right away and be successful, which is a hard task.
2. Free Safety: The Ravens had two strong safeties last season and it worked out well but the interceptions and turnovers were not there. Matt Elam has proven that he can be a strong safety and I think the Ravens should keep him there. The Ravens need to find a ball hawking free safety to get interceptions and can be a game changer.
3. Depth on the offensive line: Even with the bringing in Jeremy Zuttah and if the Ravens draft a tackle I would still like to see the Ravens get more reliable backup lineman. Last season showed how poor the depth was at the offensive line. Drafting a big guard that could potentially play all positions or transition to a center like Jason Brown did for the Ravens a while back would not be a bad idea.
