The later round Ravens draft pick story is more about quantity than quality in 2013.
Still, there are some value guys in there...
General Manager Ozzie Newsome thought long and hard about whether there were any areas of the draft that were left unsatisfied when asked by Ravens.com reporter Ryan Mink:
“Maybe [getting] a tight end,” he finally said.
Newsome, Assistant General Manager Eric DeCosta, Director of College Scouting Joe Hortiz and Head Coach John Harbaugh all expressed their pleasure with this year’s 10-player crop.
“We feel very, very good about what we’ve added to our football team for the 2013 season,” Newsome said.
The Ravens addressed just about every area of need. They got a safety, inside linebacker, defensive lineman, outside linebacker, fullback, offensive tackle/guard, defensive end, center, wide receiver and cornerback.
And DeCosta said they even did it by taking the top-rated player on their board at the time with nearly every pick.

Baltimore Ravens speedy wideout Torrey Smith has become known for his blazing speed on the field. We’ve also become used to seeing his signature dreadlocks poking out from under his helmet. Smith recently ditched the dreads for a more clean cut look in an attempt to become more aero-dynamic. How do you like his new look?
Ravens’ Torrey Smith cuts off his dreads. Like his new...
Former Ole Miss basketball player Murphy Holloway just completed his senior season in the NCAA tournament. Being a 6-6 power forward, Holloway figured that he was a long shot to make the NBA, even though he finished as the school's all time leading rebounder.
Instead of plying his trade overseas, Holloway has signed with the Baltimore Ravens. My guess is that he'll be...
Matt Elam was selected No. 32 overall by the Baltimore Ravens in the 2013 NFL Draft. Here's a reaction video and photos from his big day.
We’ve already seen Joe Montana’s son receive an invitation
to San Francisco 49ers minicamp. Another son of a former NFL great has been
given a shot to latch on with his father’s former team, as the Minnesota
Vikings have invited Chris Carter’s son – Duron – to a tryout, as have the
Baltimore Ravens, according to Mike Garafolo of USA Today.
Confusion here on the Duron...
Former Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o was one of several high-profile prospects to slide into the second round of the NFL Draft. However, it doesn't sound like he'll make it past the Baltimore Ravens at No. 62, as Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Super Bowl champs are "very interested" in Te'o.
While "very interested" is a term that is...
In case you are one of the millions of NFL fans who turn off the ESPN or the NFLN channel when the final pick is made in the annual NFL Draft, Ozzie Newsome wants you to remember---
Every team in the NFL will immediately get busy signing worthy talent who were not selected in the main event.
Does the name Arian Foster ring a bell?
As Ryan Mink reports from BaltimoreRavens...
As the reigning Super Bowl champ, the Baltimore Ravens waited patiently to make the 32nd selection in the 2013 draft. With their first pick they selected free safety Matt Elam of Florida in an attempt to replace future Hall of Famer Ed Reed who they loss to the Houston Texans back in March. Elam’s hard-hitting, competitive style is obvious, but
The Baltimore Ravens have selected Harvard fullback Kyle Juszczyk with the 130th overall pick in the NFL draft.
Juszczyk is a three-time All-Ivy League selection. He's the first offensive player taken by the Ravens in this year's draft.
Juszczyk, who scored 22 touchdowns for the Crimson during his career, may also line up at tight end for Baltimore.
The Ravens already...

I thought the Ravens would trade back for an extra pick in the 2nd round...but in the end, at pick #32 in the 1st, the Ravens held their ground and got their man.
Matt Elam, a safety from Florida, is a Raven.
A solid value pick...
