    I expect and hope that too. One important part of the FA discussion is do we want to pay less, get a vet that can start right away as an upgrade, but on the downside of his career and maybe only a year or 2 stop gap player? OR Do we want to spend to get a good younger player that still has room to grow in the ILB/safety role, and will at worst end up as a quality backup? There are valid reasons why both are the correct way to go, but we can't do both.

    I think for now, I like the thought of getting a younger, be here for 3+ years, type of FA at the safety role.(Ryan Clark) While at ILB, I think I want that solid vet that is going to immediately upgrade that position, but will hopefully be jumped over by a fresh rookie draft pick, and move to a quality backup role.(James Harrison)

    I agree that the Ravens do need to upgrade their skill positions, and by a lot. I just don't think they get back to where they were with Flacco, moving forward. I would not be that surprised if they grab a QB in the 2nd round.

    Genard Avery 6'1" - 250lbs Listed as an ILB on most draft sheets, but plays more like a OLB. Late round guy, maybe UDFA. Reminds me of VW/Harrison.
    Career stats at Memphis
    45 games played. 230 tackles. 44.5 tackles for loss. 21.5 sacks. 3 forced fumbles. 2 INTs.

    Here's the the thing. Tyrod Taylor, Garapalo, Alex Smith, and Cousins all put up far better #s with less name brand weapons. Flacco is even more of a check down artist than Smith. Bottom line is that other than a brilliant playoff run that made people think he was an upper tier guy, he sorta is terrible.
    Until the Ravens realize Flacco is a detriment on the field and a disaster on the cap sheet, they are not going back to a SB. Yet every draft cycle we gotta hear about how all Flacco needs are weapons to unleash his amazing offensive juggernaut potential.

    I cannot find a flaw in this guy's game.

    I like Jewell a lot. if we could get Rasshan Evans in the first round...a safety like Kyzer White in the 2nd...and double dip at ILB with a pick like Jewell or Fred Warner in the 3rd round...I would be beside myself. I also like the tape on P.J. Hall, the NT out of Sam Houston State and wonder how he and Hargrave would do on the inside of a four man front.
