Bucky Brooks Grades AFC North Draft


Bucky Brooks of NFL Network gave the AFC North Draft grades. Here is what Bucky had to say about the Baltimore Ravens’ draft:

Baltimore Ravens: B

Ozzie Newsome and Co. have a long, storied tradition of finding quality players throughout the draft, and this year was no exception. The Ravens addressed their biggest defensive need with the selection of Jimmy Smith in the first round. Although their trade snafu with the Chicago Bears put the acquisition in jeopardy, the team still landed the top-rated player on the board. The selections of Torrey Smith and Tandon Doss were designed to help Joe Flacco in the passing game. Smith, in particular, gives the team the deep threat that has been sorely missing in the lineup. Pernell McPhee doesn’t provide an immediate answer to the Ravens’ pass-rushing woes opposite Terrell Suggs, but he is another versatile defender to throw into their frontline rotation.
