Defense Drafting

i hear the ravens D referred to like it has some inherent strength just cuz they are badasses. truth is, they have infused some great strength into the team via the draft year after year. i looked at this in consideration of the of the saints continuous decline in defense from 11th to 32nd in haslett's tenure.
what if's of course,but just consider them-
2003- sullivan picked over defensive rookie of the year terrell suggs (marcus trufant for that matter)
2002- stallworth picked over human highlight machine ed reed
2001- ravens pick solid cb gary baxter in 2nd
1999- the rickey year. skins picked champ bailey in the traded spot. all everything chris mcalister was just after that for the ravens.

Excellent post.

Often though it\'s a couple of years down the road before you can see how a particular play pans out.

So let look to the 2005 draft then:

What\'s the greatest need?

Who\'s the best player that we can pick, or even better move up to?

Why don\'t we have a good player personnel guy?

Was Randy Mueller involved in the Sullivan debacle?

It\'s called having good scouts and management. Something we lack. Not to mention that Ray Lewis makes everyone on that team better.
