Ok so we have reached the day of the draft and the final poll of our daily poll series.

All of the daily polls will be posted hours before the draft so that you can see what the consensus of Ravens fans is and whether you were right or not.

For the last installment we have a couple of mid rounders. both are rangy free safties with big upside and great ball skills. Bacarri Rambo of Georgia and Phillip Thomas of Fresno State.


Thomas is the most complete free safety in this draft. That said, he isnt necessarily the best. he does everything well, but aside from his ball skills and jump ball ability, he isnt great at anything. Thomas could possibly have been a first round pick were it not for a terrible broken leg injury that sidelined him in 2011 and made him tentative in 2012. if he can regain his form from before his injury and strengthen his run game support, he could be the best safety in this draft. Like Rambo, he is best suited to be a true centerfielder. both of these guys model their game after Ed Reed.


Aside from having the best name in the draft, Rambo also has the highest potential as a true centerfield safety in the mold of Ed Reed. He has elite ball skills and always finds a way to be in the right place to make a play. When you turn on the tape of Rambo, he looks like a poor mans version of Reed. He isnt the same game changer with the ball in his hands, but he does seem to get the ball in his hands quite a bit. He struggles to find the right angles in pursuit, but he plays coverage beautifully. He is the best deep zone safety in this class(which just happens to be the best safety group in over a decade) by a mile. he has some issues, but they are all coachable. he could be a complete steal.

This is your last chance to tell me what you think before the draft starts. let me hear it Ravens fans.
