If there’s one thing we’ve all been “blessed” with in life, it’s the freedom to have opinions.  And thanks to the wonders of the Internet, we can all share those opinions with strangers across the world, whether they care to know them or not.  Combined with our love of speculation and all things football, it’s a good part of the reason why mock drafts have become so popular.

The same can be said of the staff here at Ebony Bird.  We all come from different walks of life, and we all have our own opinions on what the Ravens should do in the first round of the upcoming 2015 NFL Draft. That is to be expected.  After all, this is a topic that has spawned much heated debate over the last few weeks.

We thought it would be fun to round up these opinions and put our heads together to come up with the player we each think the Ravens should take in the first round.  We’re going to also justify our picks and tell you why we are collectively right.  It should be fun, and hopefully it will spark some discussion via social media and the comments below.

Be sure and let us know what you think about our picks!

With the 26th pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the Baltimore Ravens select…
