The Ravens' 2010 NFL Draft is in its final day. But before Baltimore makes its final selections Saturday, let's take a look back and recap all the action thus far.
Thursday, April 22
Trade: The Ravens traded the 25th overall pick to the Denver Broncos for the 43rd, 70th and 114th overall picks in the 2010 Draft. It marked the first time in Baltimore Ravens draft history that they traded out of the first round.

2nd Round, No. 43 – Sergio Kindle, OLB, TexasKindle is a pass-rushing force with experience in big games. The former Longhorn recorded six sacks in 2009 and 10 in 2008. The reason why Kindle slid out of the first round is because of concerns over his knee, which General Manager Ozzie Newsome said will not require microfracture surgery.
Quotable: "I'm getting Rookie of the Year," Kindle said in a conference call with Baltimore reporters. "That's my goal."

2nd Round, No. 57 – Terrence Cody, DT, AlabamaCody should pair with defensive tackle Haloti Ngata to give the Ravens a formidable run-stopping wall. Alabama never yielded to a 100-yard rusher with Cody on the line. The 350-pounder was seen by many as a first-round pick, but slid because of previous troubles to control his weight.
Quotable: "The Baltimore Ravens have drafted a defensive tackle who makes Haloti Ngata look like Kate Moss." – National Football Post, Michael Davis Smith
3rd Round, No. 70 – Ed Dickson, TE, Oregon
The 6-foot-4 pass-catching tight end should add another vertical threat to the Ravens offense while filling a need at tight end behind Todd Heap. Dickson has experience playing at wide receiver and posted 42 receptions for 551 yards and six touchdowns during his senior year.
Quotable: "We think he's got loads of promise as a receiving tight end. He can stretch the field, he's got very good hands and catching range. He's a big target." - Ravens Director of Player Personnel Eric DeCosta
4th Round, No. 114 – Dennis Pitta, TE, Brigham Young
Pitta adds a sure-handed receiving weapon to the Ravens' offense. Pitta caught 62 passes for 829 yards and eight touchdowns in 2009 and was one of most impressive tight ends at the NFL Scouting Combine.
Quotable: "I definitely think I'm someone who can stretch the field vertically and create mismatches in the passing game."
5th Round, No. 156 – David Reed, WR, Utah
Reed, a 6-foot, 190-pound receiver, set single-season school records in 2009 with 81 catches for 1,188 yards his senior year. In Utah's spread offense, Reed ranked 15th in the nation in receiving yards per game (91.4).
Quotable: "David Reed, to me, he's a crafty route runner. I'm being honest – he was one of my favorite guys in the Draft. He's got really good hands, really good body control and excellent toughness." - Director of College Scouting Joe Hortiz
5th Round, No. 157 – Art Jones, DT, SyracuseBaltimore adds depth to the Ravens' defensive line and has a high upside. The 6-foot-3, 301-pounder posted 60 tackles, including 13 for a loss, during his junior year. A torn meniscus tendon in his knee cut Jones' senior season short.
Quotable: "Art Jones is a guy, to me, that is a big-body 'D' tackle with athleticism and competitiveness." - DeCosta
6th Round, No. 194 – Ramon Harewood, OT, Morehouse
Harewood is a monster at 6'7" and 360 pounds, but is raw and will require some polishing before he can contribute down the road. He has only played four years of football after growing up in Barbados, but the Ravens have a solid offensive line which allows them to work with Harewood who has the potential to boom.
Quotable: "He's a giant. He's massive, he can knock down his side of the line of scrimmage. He's raw, he needs a lot of developmental work, technique." - Hortiz
