DE Cameron Heyward, Ohio State
Senior; 6-foot-5, 288 pounds; 48 tackles, 4 sacks, 1 interception
"Addressing their cornerback need with a player like Jimmy Smith is an option but Smith comes with character baggage and isn't worth the risk here. Heyward comes with some risks, too, after undergoing Tommy John surgery on his left elbow after the college season, but he's expected to make a full recovery and all you have to do is watch the tape of his Sugar Bowl performance against Arkansas to see how much potential he has. And something tells me Ray Lewis would take Heyward under his wing and teach him a thing or two about being a pro."

CB Brandon Harris, Miami
Junior; 5-11, 195; 44 tackles, 10 pass breakups, 1 interception
"Harris is a player on the rise and could go higher than this. The Ravens would be thrilled to pick him up at No. 26."

WR Torrey Smith, Maryland
Junior; 6-1, 200; 67 receptions, 1,055 yards, 12 touchdowns
"The Ravens need a speed receiver and a young one. Smith is a vertical threat and would open up the underneath routes for Anquan Boldin. Smith has return skills and is a solid person. He went here in my first mock."

WR Torrey Smith, Maryland
"The Ravens' lack of speed at wide receiver was evident in their playoff loss, so GM Ozzie Newsome addresses the issue by picking one of the fastest receivers in the draft. Smith's vertical ability will lift the coverage off Anquan Boldin and help Joe Flacco create more explosive plays in the passing game."

CB Jimmy Smith, Colorado
Senior; 6-2, 205; 68 tackles, 0 interceptions, 4 pass deflections
"I've had scouts compare the 6-2, 211-pound Smith to former Ravens Pro Bowler Chris McAlister. If not for off-field concerns, the Buffalo cornerback would be a top 15 pick. Ozzie Newsome is known for his willingness to look past character red flags and consistently find falling stars in the second half of the first round. In Smith, he'd potentially find another one. Even better, Smith would provide help in a key area of need."
**CBS Sports, Chad Reuter**

WR Torrey Smith, Maryland
"Smith could be the speedy deep threat QB Joe Flacco needs to stretch defenses."
**Sports Illustrated, Don Banks**

CB Jimmy Smith, Colorado
"I'm sticking with Smith to the Ravens because Baltimore has never been afraid to take a chance on the player with both talent and character red flags, especially when he plays a position of such need. Baltimore, as always, will rely on its locker-room leaders to help teach Smith the Ravens' Way. But at No. 26, with Smith likely earning a top 20 grade, he's too tempting to pass up."
**National Football Post, Wes Bunting**

OT Derek Sherrod, Mississippi State
Senior; 6-5, 321
"There could be some interest from the Ravens in an offensive tackle if one of the top guys seems to slip this far. Sherrod is a good athlete who has the ability to play on the left side at the next level and allow Michael Oher to kick back over to the right side if need be."
**Sports Blog Nation, Brian Galliford**
Posted March 21
OT Gabe Carimi, Wisconsin
Senior; 6-8, 327
"Jared Gaither's future is in doubt, and though the Ravens found respectable play at right tackle last year, a true bookend to Michael Oher would be a good idea."
**, Mock Draft Muncher**Munched on March 22WR Torrey Smith, Maryland
