BTSC 2011 Community Mock Draft Pick No. 26 -- Baltimore Ravens Select Torrey Smith, WR, Maryland

Thanks to Josh Roberts for the pick and quick writeup. The Ravens do need some more speed on offense, but not sure I'm a big fan of this pick for Baltimore. By the way, I'm liking the way this mock is shaping up, but I'm pretty surprised that Mike Pouncey is still on the board after he tore it up at his Pro Day. Perhaps he'll be coming off the board soon. Next up: the Atlanta Falcons, represented by the philosopher Bluegrass Steeler. - Michael B. -


MaLor is able to return to BTSC because I have indeed picked one of our beloved closet case's favorite players. I don't know whether my choice will be celebrated or attacked here due to that small fact. Anyway, onto the hardcore player analysis.

During a certain heartbreaking loss or two last season for our friends the Purple Brownies, I remember thinking to my self, why in the hell are all these WR's so damn slow? The offence currently has no sort of fire and spark to it, tending to get bogged down when it needs a big play, and this leads to added pressure on a still maturing Flacco, and well, when you add in a flying fuzzball on the blitz, it doesn't make for a happy sight for our less fortunate hard nosed brethren. Enter Torrey Smith, a blazer with decent hands and route running ability who is also electric after the catch, as well as on punt returns. I certainly don't want to see him running any punts back against our ST coverage. His impressive measurables as well as his stunning performances as a Terp will convince Ozzie Newsome to pull the trigger on the 6'1" wideout.
