Bradlee Anae is a tough edge rusher from the Pac-12. The first thing you notice about him is that he has a strong first step. He looks the part with traits that can’t be coached. He’s aggressive and one of the highest effort players in this draft class. He’s got great bend at the hips and is about as smooth as it gets. Anae was one of my favorite prospects to breakdown in this draft process. I have him ranked as my ninth best edge rusher. This is tremndous value for him.
Anae had 41 tackles and 13 sacks last season. He’s had at least seven sacks for the past three years. Anae is a player with high potential and at this point in the draft he is impossible to pass by. This is tremendous value for a player with a high ceiling. He’s a bit of a project yet at his position just about everybody is.
What I like about Logan Sternberg is that I think he fits perfectly in the Ravens’ offense. He’s a good athlete who can get to all of the blocks Greg Roman can dream up. He may be the best pulling guard in this draft class and as a run blocker he’s elite. He’s a guard yet he’s built almost like an offensive tackle. In my notes, I wrote down the phrase “Solid as a rock.” When you think about the way the Ravens like to play, Sternberg fits the bill.
He’s a bully up front and that’s what the Ravens need to replace the great Marshal Yanda. This is spot on value for Sternberg. The Ravens didn’t panic and overdraft an offensive lineman. They did what they do best, they found a player in the third round that is going to be a starter for them.
