|2009 NFL Draft - Baltimore Ravens|
|3||24||88||Lardarius Webb||CB||Sr||Nicholls State|
|5||13||148||Davon Drew||TE||Sr||East Carolina|
2008 RECORD: 11-5
LAST SEASON: Ravens won two playoff games and reached AFC championship game under first-year coach John Harbaugh. Rookie QB Joe Flacco justified his stature as first-round pick by guiding Baltimore to 9-2 record to close regular season.
THEY NEED: WR, CB, OL, LB.
THEY DON'T NEED: Flacco and Troy Smith have QB position covered. There's also depth at RB, DL and S.
POSSIBLE FIRST PICK: Heyward-Bey, or Davis.
OUTLOOK: Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome has knack for panning gold out of first round, even at No. 26. Ray Lewis went 26th in 1996 and Ed Reed was chosen with 24th overall pick in 2002. Newsome usually chooses talent over need, but he might decide to fill a void early because Baltimore has only six picks.
