Baltimore Ravens' Top Needs and Fits in the 2014 Draft

On the one hand, Baltimore Ravens fans can be disappointed with the 2013 performance of their team. On the other hand, they can be excited with a higher draft pick than general manager Ozzie Newsome is accustomed to.

I’m a glass-half-full kind of guy, so I can’t wait to see how the Ravens address their needs in the 2014 draft. Here’s a quick look at some of the best fits that would thrill the front office if they materialized on draft day.

First, we need to highlight the needs. That task isn’t too difficult this year, although free agency may change that. If we needed any help, Newsome made it clear. According to Garrett Downing of, the GM highlighted three specific positions where an upgrade was in order: wide receiver, offensive line and free safety.

Tight end is another position where the Ravens are thin, but how they fix that will depend on whether free-agent Dennis Pitta remains a Raven.

This slideshow hones in on those four positions and identifies the best fits to fill those roster holes as well as some other candidates.
