2012 NFL Draft: 5 Defensive Studs the Baltimore Ravens Can't Pass Up

The Baltimore Ravens have become synonymous with elite defense. Every year their unit is ranked near the top of the league and is arguably the most feared defense out there.

Even with older players like Ray Lewis and Ed Reed close to the end of their careers, there's younger players like Terrell Suggs and Haloti Ngata that are up to the task of keeping this defense elite. 

A major reason the Ravens defense is so consistently elite is because of their excellent draft choices.

General Manager Ozzie Newsome has a track record of making great picks in the draft, especially on the defensive side of the ball. With Lewis and Reed needing eventual successors soon, this draft could be a very important one. 

In this slideshow, I'm listing five defensive players that the Ravens simply cannot pass up the opportunity to draft.

There's no way the Ravens get all of them and it's even kind of doubtful they'll get three or four of them. But if the Ravens decide to go defense in the first or second round, don't be surprised if these player's names are called.
