Welcome to the Daily Caw, where we round up all the latest Baltimore Ravens news and notes from around the web.  Today we glance at the team’s combine big board, why Marc Trestman needs to be more aggressive with Joe Flacco, and one analyst downplays the Ravens’ need at the cornerback position.

Baltimore Ravens Combine Big Board

There is a lot of talent showing off their wares to NFL teams in Indianapolis this week, including the likes of Melvin Gordon, Jalen Collins, Marcus Peters, Bud Dupree, Maxx Williams, and DeVante Parker. And all of those guys are likely to draw at least a looksee from the Ravens.

Marc Trestman Should Be Aggressive With Joe Flacco

It’s no secret that Joe Flacco and the Ravens offense produced much better results in January this past season, which was the same time Gary Kubiak decided to take the reigns off and get aggressive.  So why not try this philosophy over the course of the regular season as well?

Is Cornerback Actually Not a Major Need?

NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock doesn’t think so.  He believes that a healthy Lardarius Webb and Jimmy Smith will be just fine next season.  Even though Webb improved down the stretch, health is no guarantee with either of these guys.  Plus there’s not doubt the team is still searching for a decent slot guy as well.
