Outlook: Director of player personnel Eric DeCosta has termed this a “depth draft” for the Ravens, who are looking to add to their inventory at several positions. Linebacker is definitely one of them although the Ravens are optimistic about the future of guys like Ellerbe, Kindle and McClellan, all who figure to play more prominent roles this season. The top prospects at the position, like Boston College’s Luke Kuechly and Hightower, are unlikely to last to pick 29. But there will be plenty for the Ravens to choose from in rounds two through four. Kendricks is a max-effort tackling machine who some think could hold his own as an outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense. Oklahoma’s Lewis is an explosive rusher off the edge. Brown, a Columbia native who went to Wilde Lake, has worked out for the Ravens, but he’s probably better suited in a 4-3 defense. Arizona State linebacker Vontaze Burfict, who once was viewed as a potential first-round fit for the Ravens, has fallen deep down draft boards to the point where he may not get selected at all. The Ravens have a habit of finding linebackers either late in the draft or as un-drafted free agents. They are not expected to take a linebacker in Round One unless Hightower surprisingly falls, but they’ll undoubtedly find at least one at some point during the draft.
