4-3 OLB is a relatively useless position for the Ravens. a prototype 4-3 OLB is going to be to small to be effective in the Ravens system and threfore unlikely to make any legitimate impact and generally can be passed over without much thought. in that light, This list will be just that, a list. very few comments or evalutaions will be noted, i just want our draft board to be complete and to continue to take shape as the week progresses and to do that, we can’t leave out positions.

The only three guys on the list that could interest the Ravens would be the top 2(Green and Brown) if they add 10-15 lbs of bulk and still look fast, and Zavier Gooden who is an athletic marvel. It would not be surprising to see Gooden run a sub 4.4 40 this weekend at the combine, the dude has serious speed and i am sure the Ravens can find a place for a guy as fast as him. Other than that, I wouldn’t pay a huge amount of attention to this list as a Ravens fan, some of these guys are pretty good players, but they probably wont ever get close to being Ravens.
