Baltimore Ravens
NEW ORLEANS, LA – AUGUST 31: Carl Davis /

Third round do over:

The Baltimore Ravens took Carl Davis in the third round. Davis was a defensive tackle out of Iowa with freakish size. Davis may have looked the part with his 6’5″ 328 pound frame yet he has done next to nothing in terms of production. Davis has a total of 17 tackles in the NFL and he’s played for three teams other than the Ravens. That tells you everything you need to know about this pick. John Harbaugh and company gave Davis two years to develop and it never really happened.

Who should Ravens take in re-do: Trey Flowers DE, Arkansas 

The Ravens would have been better taking Trey Flowers, who ended up going to the New England Patriots in the fourth round. Drafting Flowers would have actually accomplished what the Ravens were hoping to do by drafting Davis. They would have been getting a boost from their defensive line. Flowers didn’t play in his rookie season then he had four straight seasons with at least six sacks. The Ravens would have gotten interior pass rush here, even if it wasn’t coming right away.

When the Ravens took Davis they were in a rough part of the draft. Their best option in that range of the draft would have been Henry Anderson or Ty Montgomery. Flowers fell to the fourth round, yet hindsight tells us that he shouldn’t have.

The 2015 season was doomed. The Ravens had so many injuries that nothing would have saved it. This draft do over could have propelled the Ravens back into the playoffs a little quicker. It would have added talent to the defense while giving Baltimore the right wide receiver from the 2015 draft class.
