Exploring Ozzie Newsome’s Declining Draft Results
The Bottom Line:
Ozzie Newsome hasn’t brought in the kind of draft hauls that we are used to. He also hasn’t filled the Ravens roster with weapons for the offense. There are definite failings that we can point to here.
The Ravens draft results have gone down hill, but there have been some solid drafts after the Ravens stellar 2008 draft. To say the Ravens have been terrible in the draft is painting with to broad of a brush. However giving Newsome and company too much credit would be a mistake.

If you want to make the argument that the Ravens need to move on from Newsome, I can go along with that. After all, we won’t know what we truly have with Eric DeCosta until he is running the show completely. The Ravens do need to do better in the draft, particularly at the skill positions. However if you want to say that Newsome has lost his marbles, or that he has been doing awful in the last eight seasons, I don’t agree with you. There is reason to criticize Newsome but there has been some good with the bad.
