OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens addressed the middle of their defense in the first three rounds of the NFL draft.
Perhaps on Saturday, general manager Ozzie Newsome will be able to appease new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak.
Newsome picked Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley in the first round Thursday before taking Florida State tackle Timmy Jernigan and FSU safety Terrence Brooks in the second and third rounds Friday.
Newsome added Colorado State tight end Crockett Gillmore with a compensatory pick in the third round.
The Ravens desperately need an offensive tackle and depth at running back, positions that might be addressed on Saturday.
Baltimore has four picks left: Two compensatory fourth-round selections, another in the fifth and their original sixth-rounder.
Assistant general manager Eric DeCosta says, “We’d like to get some offensive players.”
