NFL Draft 2011: Could Torrey Smith Be Available in Second Round for Baltimore?
Would Baltimore Ravens Be Able to Wait on Torrey Smith?
The NFL Draft game is one where, at times, you have to take a risk and hope a player falls to you. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, and when it doesn't teams just shrug it off, and usually us fans do not know about those situations.
One which could occur during the draft is regarding Torrey Smith and the Baltimore Ravens. Torrey Smith wants to be a Raven, and the Ravens want Smith. The problem is, however, Smith seems to be an early-mid second round choice right now.
As a result, should the Ravens reach and grab him with the 26th overall pick, or wait until the 58th pick and hope he falls that far? There will be many deep threats available at 58, so if Smith's not there then they won't be hurting.
At the same time, there are players projected to fall to the Ravens now who could be better options. Jimmy Smith and Cameron Heyward would add an extra element to the Ravens' defense, and both would be available.
Trading up for a wide receiver in this case does not seem to make sense, so it boils down to how badly the Ravens want him. I don't think he's worth sacrificing a top pick over given the depth of deep threat wideouts, but that's a question for the Ravens to answer, rather than me.
