Baltimore Ravens 2010 draft picks rounds 1-3

April 23, 2010

The Baltimore Ravens have made some pretty big moves so far in the 2010 draft.

While in the middle of the biggest three days for football upcoming stars—and remember we are on the clock–Ozzie Newsome has made choices that are going to have major impact in Charm City.

About 90% of Ravens fans hearts were broken last night when the Dallas Cowboys swooped in and traded up to get pick 24 to take WR Dez Bryant (personally I was glad for it and had a feeling Ozzie would trade down and build up the team with more picks).

And he did just that. With pick 25, Ozzie predictably chose to trade that to the Denver Broncos (who then chose Florida QB Tim Tebow) in exchange for picks 43, 70 and 114.

What you need to know for Draft Day for the 2010 NFL season

April 22, 2010

It is the most wonderful time of the year!

Yes, I am singing Christmas carols. Because draft day is my Christmas.

I dare you to name one better, more exciting day for a football fan.

But Ravens fans, there are a few things you need to know before the draft starts  up tonight at 7:30 p.m.

First, this years draft has been changed up a bit. Where it once used to be held on one day, all day long on Saturday, it has been changed to tonight at 7:30 p.m. for the first round.

The NFL draft for the 2010 season is going to be prime time over the next three days.

Then tomorrow, Friday 23 at 6 p.m., the second and third rounds will be chosen. Saturday, starting at 10 a.m. rounds 4-7 will be announced.

How will this new time schedule effect the draft? Will there be more trading down?—there is definitely going to be less sleep for owners, players and agents, that’s for sure.
