CB Brandon Harris, Miami
Junior; 5-11, 193; 44 tackles, 10 pass breakups, 1 interception
"The Ravens ran into some really bad luck last year, when their first pick, **Sergio Kindle**, got hurt off the field. And among all their other picks, one spot they didn't hit was cornerback. Harris is a solid value at this stage, as he carries a late-first round grade. A coach's son, he offers prototype size at 5-11, 195 pounds, good instincts and isn't shy in run support. The Ravens need to address the secondary and Harris is a good option."

DE Cameron Heyward, Ohio State
Senior; 6-5, 288; 48 tackles, 4 sacks, 1 interception
"Heyward proved in the Sugar Bowl win over Arkansas that he is a versatile playmaker when motivated. He would be a nice addition to an already-strong defensive line and a good complement to **Terrell Suggs** on the opposite end."

WR Torrey Smith, Maryland
Junior; 6-1, 200; 67 receptions, 1,055 yards, 12 touchdowns
"**Anquan Boldin** remains one of the league's better receivers, but he was invisible in the Ravens' loss to Pittsburgh in the playoffs (one catch for minus-2 yards). **T.J. Houshmandzadeh** was more productive (three catches for 38 yards) but his critical drop on fourth down ended the game. Perhaps most important, the Ravens need to account for the age of the entire. Boldin (30), Houshmandzadeh (33) and **Derrick Mason** (37) would be more effective if supplemented with local product Smith, whose rare speed on the outside could give **Joe Flacco** the deep threat he needs."

WR Torrey Smith, Maryland
"The Ravens tried building a receiving corps with big-bodied veterans. Now they'll try to get young and faster."

CB Aaron Williams, Texas
Junior; 6-1, 195; 45 tackles, 1 sack
"The Ravens got some great production out of **Chris Carr** and **Lardarius Webb** at the cornerback spots this year, but they could use some more talented playmakers at the position. A two-year starter for Mack Brown and Will Muschamp at Texas, the 6-1, 195-pound Williams is a physical cornerback with deceptively fast speed. He's a skilled tackler who rarely gets beaten deep. After what happened on Saturday with the Steelers' Antonio Brown, I'm sure plenty of Ravens fans know someone like that could be helpful."

Posted Jan. 20DE/DT Allen Bailey, MiamiSenior; 6-4, 285; 46 tackles, 7 sacks
"Allen Bailey is one of the top players available who makes sense for the Ravens. He's a good fit in Baltimore's scheme (think the Ravens like having Miami Hurricanes on their team?), as he would supplant **Cory Redding** at left end. Redding just hasn't offered much of a pass rush this year."

CB Aaron Williams, Texas
"It's rare to see the Baltimore Ravens make a big mistake when it comes to player personnel but their failure to address the cornerback position last offseason cost them dearly at times. Looking forward, **Dominique Foxworth** is coming off a major knee injury, Lardarius Webb hasn't shown he's anything more than a backup while Fabian Washington, Chris Carr and **Josh Wilson** are all going to be free agents. The Texas program has produced a lot of NFL defensive backs over the years, many of whom were first round picks, and Aaron Williams appears primed to carry on that proud tradition."

CB Aaron Williams, Texas
"The Ravens get a top tier CB in Aaron Williams from Texas. This year there are a potential 5 CB's that could go in the first round of the 2011 NFL Mock Draft and they are all first round talent."
