Team impact

Several teams drafting above the Ravens could have an impact on their strategy. That includes the Minnesota Vikings possibly drafting Notre Dame middle linebacker Manti Te'o (pictured above) with one of their first-round draft picks (No. 23 or No. 25). If they pick Te'o, that could mean the Ravens will be more likely to go with a safety with their pick rather than LSU middle linebacker Kevin Minter. The New England Patriots (No. 29), Atlanta Falcons (No. 30) and San Francisco 49ers (No. 31) could all be eyeing similar players to Baltimore.
