    Couldn't happen to a better bunch of convicts!!

    RAVENS: The Ravens' draft board got uncharacteristically wiped out, according to the team's official website. By the end of the three-day event, all but three of the team's top 150 players were selected. And Ravens director of player personnel Eric DeCosta said those three remaining players had medical concerns. “Things don’t always happen the way you want them to,” DeCosta said. “Some drafts, every player that you want kind of comes to you, and then other drafts – this year comes to mind; 2010 was very similar to this year -- sometimes you just get wiped out. You have four players, and all of a sudden, boom they are gone.” Hensley's slant: The Ravens' 2010 draft won't go down as one of their best, but the team did find productive players in nose tackle Terrence Cody and tight ends Ed Dickson and Dennis Pitta and defensive tackle Art Jones. That's also the draft where Baltimore gambled on linebacker Sergio Kindle, who had several pre-draft red flags. He has yet to contribute since fracturing his skull in 2010 when he fell down two flights of stairs.

    Read the 63 comments on the article from Ratbird fans:

    1. Other teams are copying us - maybe it was a talented, but not a deep draft this year, so everyone had similar boards?

    2. Pissed at Denver and NE for trading picks allowing NE to take Hightower - works for me.

    3. They're worried about their first place schedule and both Pitt and Cinn getting better in the draft with easier schedules - would love to see them miss the playoffs.

    How could they possibly miss the playoffs when they have the number 1 QB in the NFL plus the best player of all time?
