Full story: Baltimore Sun
The Ravens are being cautiously optimistic, and they should be, because the real evidence of a good draft doesn't show up for several years. Read more

This was one of the greatest draft classes in our history. When you consider that now, the Ravens no longer have to worry about replacing Ogden because Gaither is the next Ogden. Our offensive line is set for the next 10 to 12 years. It's going to be exciting to see how quickly these guys gel. Also, Le'Ron McClain is going to be a great weapon out of the backfield with soft hands and a great blocker.

I really like Barnes and hopefully he gets to start for us and he will be our next Terrell Suggs (although the Ravens need to lock him up forever [suggs that is]) Burgess gives us depth with Mike Smith so we can get two reliable guys behind Lewis and Scott.

So our O-line is set but the one guy I'm not sold on is Troy Smith, as far as I'm concerned I'd prefer a veteran guy at qb just to manage the game and let Willis go out there and dominante.

Great article ..... I agree.

Do you see Smith as the heir apparent at QB ?

No, Smith is a back up at best. I see us go after a big name veteran who hits the free agency. I still think Kyle Boller is the heir because he knows the system and now knows he just needs to manage a game not dominate one.

Olsen should make the team not Troy Smith but something tells me the Ravens players want a brother instead of a cracker.
