Will DeCosta Surprise Us And trade Up To Draft Mekhi Becton?

Recommended Posts

I really like Becton. I don't see us moving way up to get him, but if he falls into the 20's and he's a top 12 guy on our board... anything is possible. 

As I posted early in this thread, I'm not big on older prospects, like Baun, and Robert Hunt... however, with that said, the Ravens did take Hayden Hurst, who was among (if not THE) the oldest players in the draft, in R1. Hunt in R2 is certainly a possibility.

Hopefully all the top tackles and QBs are taken early.  That will leave plenty of guys at positions of need for the Ravens.  They might even be able to trade back a few spots and still get their guy.

4 to 6 OTs before we pick and  4 QBs

Not to mention at least 3 CBs and 2 Safeties 

Plus the DT Brown, LB Simmons

I wouldn't consider resigning Lamar until he at least wins a playoff game. Highlights are fine. He gets paid to win.

I agree with this ...so far the gimmick offense has laid 2 eggs in the playoffs. IMO we really weren’t in either game.

I think we need a MLB, WiLB, DE, a WR, C/G and 3rdTE

id be happy with a draft that gets me 

Murray/Murray/Baun      1st

J Brooks (WiLB)               2nd 

Terrell Lewis  (DE)            2Nd

Dantzler            (CB)         3rd

Biadasz             (C)            3rd

Peoples-Jones (WR)        4th

Muti (G)                               4th

Parkinson        (TE)            5th

You mean the now 23-year old that has gone 19-3 in his "career"? I agree that it's disheartening to do so well in the regular season but not the two playoff games as a 21 and 22-year old, but he will win in the playoffs as he matures and grows as a player. Many HOF QB's struggled early in their careers before hitting their incredible strides and most of them were older to start their careers than Lamar was.

Haha!  Beat me by a minute.  The Lions are set up to make out well in this draft.

There are 4 really good ones ...Miami has a ton of draft capital if they don't do something stupid

What a ridiculous and unprovoked post.  As Greg said, he’s 19-3 and just turned 23 years old.  He had one of the greatest seasons of all time at 22.  30 other NFL teams would kill to have him.

If they don't fix the D, and get Lamar to do it in the playoffs, it doesn't matter.

This comment adds nothing to a conversation about the draft.

    • #50THANNIVERSARY On this day in 1970, the last day before the All-Star break, the Orioles split a double header with the Detroit Tigers.  The Birds dropped game one 7-3 but came back to win game two 13-3.  The team enters the break with a 54-33 record. Dave McNally (12-6) was shelled in the first game: 2.2 IP, 6 H, 7 R, 1 K, 3 HR allowed).  The Orioles were held to 6 hits with Davey Johnson going 2 for 4 with 1 run scored. BOX SCORE Game two started much like game one did.  Starter Tom Phoebus lasted 2.2 innings and allowed 3 runs on 5 hits while walking 2 and striking out 1.  Dick Hall relieved Phoebus and recorded the win with his 6.1 inning effort.  Hall allowed 1 hit and 1 walk in his appearance. Boog Powell, Elrod Hendricks and Merv Rettenmund all homered for the Orioles.  Rettenmund went 4 for 5 with 2 2B, 2 runs scored and 2 RBI.  Powell went 2 for 5 with 2 runs scored and 4 RBI.  Hendricks went 2 for 4 with 2 runs scored and 2 RBI.  Brooks Robinson contributed a 3 for 4 with 1 2B and 1 run scored effort as well. BOX SCORE
    • #50THANNIVERSARY On this day in 1970 the Orioles defeated the Detroit Tigers 6-5.  Mike Cuellar improved to 11-5 on the year with a 7.0 inning effort in which he allowed 5 runs on 8 hits while walking 2 and striking out 2. Cuellar helped himself out by going 3 for 4 with a homerun (his second), 1 run scored and 2 RBI.  Homeruns by Elrod Hendricks (1 for 4, 1 R, 2 RBI) and Terry Crowley (1 for 4, 1 R, 2 RBI) accounted for the rest of the Orioles run total. Bill Freehan came up big for the Tigers: 3 for 3, 1 3B, 1 HR, 3 runs scored and 1 RBI. BOX SCORE
    • Variations in value on players almost don't matter if they're talented enough, because salaries are pro-rated.  The short season makes wacky things like us signing Puig for a $4 million (after the pro rata adjustment) deal plausible.  That wouldn't be worth it at all if we had to pay for a full season.  But because of the built-in discount due to the 60 game season, a player would have to be massively overvalued for him to not make sense.   edit to add: I think that most years we can assume that we'd get back at least a 45 FV prospect for a player like Puig, but this is not most years.  We don't really know if the teams will take this season seriously and offer the same level prospects for him as they would other years.  So there are definitely some unknowns and risk.  But to me it seems like a relatively low-risk, high-reward strategy to sign as many talented players looking for 1 year deals as you can, securing a massive discount because of the shortened season, and then trade them for prospects
