NFL Draft Zone:
While it is to early to say if a player was a good pick or a reach, some of these players picked were obviously desperation. I put together a few notes from the NFL Draft’s first round last night. I hope you all enjoy, but I am sure some will not agree.
The Biggest Reach in the draft is by far the Chicago Bears. I am sorry Bears fans, but to me their is no Hall Of Fame Guard in this entire draft. So with that being said to reach on a guard like Long as early as 20, you made a mistake in my opinion. The kid is a good athlete but it was by far the biggest reach in the first round.
When it comes to best pick, the best value pick has to be the Baltimore Ravens, they selected Matt Elam with the last pick in the first round. This kid has the intangibles to be the best safety in this draft class. If you think they will miss Ed Reed think again. Matt Elam is a stud and will be a pro bowler for the Ravens.
The worst trade in the draft so far is the Dolphins. What are you doing? You hav...

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...

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.

The Baltimore Ravens roster has made a complete overhaul after winning the Super Bowl, and the safety position was just one of the problem areas. Both starting safeties, Ed Reed and Bernard Pollard, have found new homes and the Ravens think they found their next guy in Matt Elam. And I tend not to question their picks, as...
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
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...
Happy weekend, everyone. I hope you are reading this outside.
This is the most violent shaving cream pie to the face I believe I have ever seen.
Matt Elam, now drafted by the Ravens, went in without an agent.
This is a cute idea that will actually be excruciating to watch.
