|This is my annual Raven's mock draft. Here's what the kid thinks and wishes happens...
Round One (Pick #16)
Baltimore Ravens trade the 16th, 122nd, and 186th overall picks to the Houston Texans in exchange for the #25th and #57th overall picks.
Why: After missing out on Romo, Houston is in the hunt for one of the top QB's. They select Mitch Trubisky here.
Round One (Pick #25 via trade w/HOU)
CHARLES HARRIS - DE/OLB - MISSOURI
Why: Ravens trade back and get a pass rusher they covet in the first round. Harris has rare pass rush moves few in this draft has. I've always liked him from day one. He shows quick hands, elite finesse moves, and has a great motor. He reminds me of Dwight Freeney. He steps in day one and becomes that rock opposite T-Sizzle.

Round Two (Pick #47)
ADOREE' JACKSON - CB/KR/PR - USC
Why: He may be there, he may not. But I don't think this is unrealistic as some may think. There a few CB's I could see going in round 2 that should be first round picks (i.e. Quincy Wilson, Kevin King, Gareon Conley). Nonetheless, Jackson falls to us in the 2nd and we are drooling at the mouths. He fills 2 immediate needs. He's a dynamic KR/PR, who I think has pro bowl potential off the bat in that aspect. He's also as talented at CB but with the signing of Carr, it's no need to throw him in the fire right away. Great pick with high reward.

Round Two (Pick #57 via trade w/HOU)
JUJU SMITH-SCHUSTER - WR - USC
Why: I feel Smith-Schuster is very underrated. He should be mentioned with the likes of Mike Williams and Corey Davis but due to a couple of seasons with nagging injuries and bad QB play he didn't produce like we all hoped. To me, he's a competitor. A strong handed possession receiver who wins majority of the jump balls. A guy with nice size and a guy whose often compared to a Baltimore legend in Anquan Boldin. He comes in and plays in the 3-wide sets immediately and gives Flacco that guy who can make that tough catch over the middle.

Round Three (Pick #74, via trade w/PHI for T. Jernigan)
TANOH KPASSAGNON - DE - VILLANOVA
Why: He's a beast.

Round Three (Pick #78 )
WILL HOLDEN - OT - VANDERBILT
Why: Replaces Wagner on the right side.

Round Five (Pick #159)
TARIK COHEN - RB - NORTH CAROLINA A&T
Why: Gives us another playmaker on offense. Someone who could replace Danny Woodhead in 2 years.

AND YES, I have us signing Nick Mangold!
