2012 NFL Draft Team Needs: AFC North

With the 2012 NFL Draft only days away, we are taking a look at the top needs for each team, division by division. Today we head to the AFC North, and, if you missed it, check out the AFC East from Tuesday. Got a player you want your team to target? Let me know in the comments.

Also, be sure to take a look at our massive 2012 Pre-Draft Rookie Report, which takes an in-depth look at all the top fantasy prospects.

Baltimore Ravens

Picks: 29, 60, 91, 130, 164, 169, 198, 236

Top Needs:

1. Guard – The Ravens lost Pro Bowl LG Ben Grubbs in free agency to New Orleans, leaving them very thin at that spot. At the moment, 2011 3rd-round pick Jah Reid is expected to move from tackle to guard and start in place of Grubbs, but the Ravens could use some competition there. Guard is not always a position that’s in demand in the 1st round, but Wisconsin’s Kevin Zeitler would make sense with the 29th overall pick. Wisconsin C Peter Konz could also be a target with Matt Birk now 35 years old.

2. Linebacker – The Ravens could add help both inside and outside in their 3-4 scheme. [...]

In a high-stakes draft, you have to be very proactive a […]

  • 8/17 projection update August 17, 2014
    Just a quick note today for those drafting (Sunday, August 17, 2014) that I have updated projections taking into account the Friday and Saturday games.

When we do our main projection updates early and late in the week, it’s […]
