With their second of two fifth rounders, Baltimore stays in the trenches and goes with the best player available, Auburn defensive lineman Justin Rogers. At 6-foot-2, 338 pounds, Rogers is a man among boys at his position. He's got a wide, strong base and will offer the Ravens a secondary, interior pass rusher who can give them a good amount of reps within the rotation.

Finally, Baltimore takes another wide receiver late in the draft by going with Mississippi State's Lideatrick "Tulu" Griffin. As a potential slot receiver in the Ravens offense, the 5-foot-10 Griffin is a shifty athlete who has great vision after the catch. He is also someone who can potentially contribute on special teams as one of the better kick returners in college football.

Over his last two seasons with Mississippi State, Griffin caught 90 passes for 1,160 yards and eight touchdowns. He also averaged over 30 yards per kickoff return (54 total returns) and two scores.
