Welcome to the Daily Caw, where we round up all the latest Ravens news and notes from around the web for your convenience.  Today we debate whether the Ravens should use their number one pick on a cornerback or a wide receiver, some moves the team should make this offseason, why at least one guy isn’t buying the Brandon Marshall to Ravens hype, and comparing C.J.

There is no truly elite corner prospect in the draft this year, but there are some talented guys that will likely be on the board by the time the Ravens pick at number 26 – guys like Trae Waynes, Kevin Johnson, Marcus Peters, and and Jason Collins.

Ravens Can Target True No. 1 Wide Receiver in Draft

Comparing C.J. Mosley’s Rookie Year to the Greats

Mosley’s rookie season compares favorably to some pretty great linebackers of the past.  Including, you guessed it, Ray Lewis.
