Ravens NFL Draft Day 3 Recap

On Saturday the NFL hosted the final day of the NFL Draft. The 6 hour event consisted of rounds 4 through 7. The Ravens had three picks, including a forth round pick, #121 overall, a fifth round pick, #159 overall, and a sixth round pick, #186 overall. With their forth round pick, #121 overall the Ravens selected Nico Siragusa, with no relation to Tony Siragusa. Nico Siragusa is a guard from San Diego State University. The Ravens needed to add new offensive linemen, especially a guard, center, or tackle. Siragusa is versatile on the offensive line, and is open to playing center if need be. The Ravens will probably find a use for him early on the line, and I wouldn’t doubt him starting this season. With their fifth round pick, #159 overall, the Ravens selected another guard,¬†Jermaine Eluemunor from Texas A&M. Eluemunor was originally born in London, England, and moved to the United States at age 14. He used to play rugby before becoming a football player. The very tough lineman will make an impact on the Ravens O-Line like Siragusa, and I wouldn’t doubt him getting some reps during this season. Finally in the sixth round with their final pick, the Baltimore Ravens selected¬†Chuck Clark, safety from Virgina Tech, with the #186 overall pick. Clark was a three year starter at Virginia Tech, and will be a developmental project for the time being. The Ravens currently have Eric Weddle, Tony Jefferson, and Lardarius Webb all on the team as safeties, so Clark probably won’t see the field much this season. However, Weddle and Webb are aging, and the Ravens will need to ensure they have an heir to the position. Clark could be that heir if he develops into a solid defender. The Ravens have always had good safeties, especially in the Ed Reed years. Clark hopefully will develop into something special.
