1.3232Kevin Minter, ILB
from LSU
I really wanted Jesse Williams at this pick but I can't resist getting a quality replacement for Ray Lewis in Minter. With Lewis retiring, Ellerbe and Kruger as free agents, and Suggs nursing an arm injury the linebacking corp needs some reinforcements. Our buddy Evan Silva describes him as a "natural defensive leader". That's just what we're looking for.

from South Carolina
3.3294Terron Armstead, OT
from Arkansas-Pine Bluff

from Virginia Tech
6.29187Denard Robinson, WR
from Michigan
At best he's Darren Sproles or Randel El. At worst he's Dexter McCluster. Either way I think Robinson has the talent to somehow be a difference maker in the NFL, so getting a guy like that in the 6th round is rare. He'll bring an aspect to the Ravens passing game they don't currently have.
6.32190Travis Johnson, OLB
from San Jose State
With Paul Kruger likely leaving via free agency, the Ravens will need a pass rushing linebacker and Travis Johnson fits that role. He will likely be a special teamer only for a couple seasons while he continues to learn but he's got the talent to be a factor down the road.
7.32222Lonnie Pryor, FB
from Florida State
Getting the top ranked fullback with the last pick of the draft? Pretty....pretty.....pretty good. With Flacco's upcoming deal we might see Vonta Leach as a cap casualty. Pryor will be a cheaper option.
