six down, four to go. With the 168th pick in the NFL draft, a compensatory pick they received for the loss of Jarrett Johnson, the Ravens have picked Ricky Wagner, the right tackle from Wisconsin. Solid pick.

When was the last time a Wisconsin lineman was bad? seriously? Many people actually had Wagner rated higher than Travis Frederick, who was taken 31st overall(in a massive reach). Wagner probably isnt ever going to be a left tackle that the Ravens have been desperately looking for, but he is a really good guard or right tackle. I wouldnt be surprised to see Wagner start at LG if the Ravens are serious about playing Kelechi Osemele at Left Tackle.

The Ravens have 2 picks in the sixth round and 4 total picks remaining. Who will they spend them on?

There are quite a few good players left on the board. Da’Rick Rogers is by far the highest player left on my board, but he has been removed from many teams boards because of off field issues, the Ravens could be betting on getting him late. I am also high on Ryan Swope and I am really high on Cobi Hamilton, both are big WRs who would play in the slot. Jordan Poyer, the corner out of Oregon St. is also a very highly rated player who has fallen for unknown reasons. Bacarri Rambo is also still waiting to hear his name. I also wouldnt rule out the Ravens taking a flier on Tyler Bray who many beleive is the most talented QB in this draft but has some off field concerns.
