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.

    I have been a little behind lately spending more time on more important things, and I missed two weeks ago also due to the holiday, but here are raw notes showing all if not most of Week 14’s “Just missed it” plays. If you’re looking for perfect grammar and punctuation, don’t read this. WR Mike Brown drops a TD pass on opening drive of game. Maurice Jones-Dr […]

  • Just missed it: Week Eleven November 21, 2013
    Here is another batch of just missed it type plays from Week 11. These are raw notes, so they were not edited for quality control.
