    I had absolutely nothing to do, so I (finally) posted a blog entry on the losers of the 08 draft. freewebs.com/49ersthoughts/49ersfansblog.htm

    LOL, you knew this would piss me off.

    Trading for Fabian Washington is the exact same as drafting a CB.

    Yes the Ravens do need a safety because they only had 2 on the roster. They also did need a WR because they don't have a 4th or 5th option. You didn't even mention O'Neil Cousins or Ray Rice who were both great picks.

    The Ravens basically took care of the two things that did them in last year a QB and depth.

      Jared Gaither? Oneal Cousins was not a need at all.

        Considering Jason Brown might be getting moved to center it might be handy to have a RG or RT depending on where Marshal Yanda fits best. Even then, Jason Brown is a free agent after this season and I don't want to just throw a rookie out there. Besides, we need more depth for when the linemen go down.

          Oniel Cousins projects better as an interior lineman, if I recall right.

          I think Flacco was a bit of a reach, but I had no real gripes with the Ravens' draft. Considering that they basically raped the Jaguars when they wanted Derrick Harvey, they did quite alright.

            How was Cincy a winner? Jerome Simpson in the 2nd round was a horrible pick.

            Plus I don't see why they drafted 3 WRs.
            2014-2015 Kentucky Wildcats (38-1)

            Congrats to Wisconsin. Even more congrats to UK haters.

              Lose 3 receivers, draft 3 receivers.

                Simpson was bad value, but he did fill a need. Also, I said that was a bad pick.

                  I think this needs to be asked. What should Baltimore have done with their picks?

                    They should have taken at least one corner early. Furthermore, Flacco was a huge reach at 18. If he is rushed onto the field, he will be a bust.

                      That's it? You said they had the second worst draft yet you only touch on the first two rounds. Furthermore Joe Flacco was a good fit for their system and they have talent around him. So no, I don't think he will bust. They also brought in a proven veteran in Fabian Washington who at the very worst will be the nickelback.

                      You need to take the entire draft into account if you're going to call it the second worst.

                        The picks of Zbikowski and Nakamura made absoltuely no sense.

                          Did you read my blog? As Matt said, many of the later picks were outright bad.

                            So let me say a few things here on the Ravens draft that we should agree on:

                            1. Got ripped off in the JAX trade according to TVC so they didn't maximize value
                            2. Shouldn't have traded up for Flacco because he was goign to be at 26 anyways
                            3. Mid round picks were very average

                            No one can be impressed with the picks of Zbikiowski or Marcus Smith.

                            Ravens had an average draft. Not a bad one, not a great one. You can't say, logically, that the Ravens had one of hte best drafts. They certainly didn't maximize value. Not at all.

                              Only 2 safeties on the roster.

                              I didn't feel like they had the best draft, it's just I know they did not have the second worst.
