Baltimore Ravens 2013 NFL Draft: Linebackers That Could Replace Ray Lewis

For the past few years, draft pundits have projected inside linebacker prospects to Baltimore in the first round, making claims that they are destined to replace the Raven's legendary linebacker.

While that has yet to come to fruition, Ray Lewis' recent season ending tricep injury could finally force Ozzie Newsome's hand into drafting some young talent at the position. 

Past experiments with mid round and even un-drafted talent haven't paid many dividends for Baltimore, as they have seen players like Tavares Gooden and Dan Cody come and go.

Former un-drafted free agent Dannell Ellerbe will be asked to step up and fill the void for the time being, as will long time special teams stand-out Brendan Ayanbadejo; but in 2013 the Ravens may finally need to draft a legitimate linebacker prospect to either be groomed by Lewis or to take over immediately.
