Here Are My Notes From the John Harbaugh Interview.

  • John seems legitimately psyched about the draft class. mentioned Brandon Williams multiple times without being prompeted. I get the feeling the Ravens brass really liked him.
  • Harbs described John Simon as a Ravens type of guy. He flies around and hits people in the face. He makes plays and plays hard.
  • On the switch to Jim Caldwell and changes on offense. We Need To get better..we need to be more explosive and more physical. We just took a center(Ryan Jensen) and we like the competition there a lot. We just have to get better any way we can.
  • Ryan Jensen was described as a center and Harbaugh said he would compete at center for a starting job with Gino Gradkowski. I said earlier that Jensen is enormous for a center, especially in a no huddle, this is an odd pick. 

the Ravens still have 2 more picks to make, so the interview was cut short. The Ravens are also probably already making calls to potential undrafted free agents and trying to get their foot in the door early. The Ravens always land some gems on the UDFA market so I would assume they do some good work there this afternoon.
