Ogden told Baltimore to prepare for the season as if he wouldnt be there. That makes LT a need for them. Maybe they will go after Clady and leave Ellis for us.

Baltimore was already looking for O-line. Ogden had a bad year of injuries last year and it showed in the QB protection. He may have been on the field in some games, but he wasn't 100%, that's for sure. Maybe him retiring will make them go for it harder, but I don't think him retiring or not has an effect on whether they are looking O-line. They are.

This is good news for us... This greatly increases the chances of Baltimore trading out of their slot (w/ us if we're interested), or being forced into grabbing their OT at #8 (Chris Williams or Jeff Otah).

Clady is going to be a bookend LT for 10 years in the NFL... Why wouldn't we want him.

because i dont think he is that good. plus we already have a LT who has made the probowl.

We have a super-star right tackle playing left tackle. Clady would be an excellent pick for us. Stinchcomb is not the future for us.

That being said, I'm on the Sedrick Ellis bandwagon.

I'm still on the DRC bandwagon... I think ESPN First Take Mock Draft will be similar to the real draft because they have reporters from each team city and they have Ellis and Dorsey going in the top 5...

Good, then they won't mine switching places with us. We get Ellis and they get their tackle at 10.

Cincy, ATL and Oakland are the teams that could very well take the "Big 2"... barring another team jumping way up there to get them... we should be able to take Ellis because I doubt Glen D makes it out of the top 5.

I wouldn't pencil them in for Ryan Clady just yet. The Ravens picked up Jared Gaither from Maryland in last year's supplemental draft, and they believe he can step in for Ogden after he retires.

Don't be shocked if Ogden thinks about retiring until he decides he wants to play the day after training camp ends. It certainly wouldn't be the first or last time it happened with an older, established linemen. Walter Jones did it for years, Strahan did it last year and several other have done it.
