Brandon Pettigrew, TE, Oklahoma State
|26. Baltimore Ravens|
Drafter: shake n bake
Reasons for drafting: This situation would cause a massive schism in the Baltimore fanbase. The local hero at a obvious need position, or the BPA who could contribute, will be needed down the line, but would likely be pushing out a fan favorite. Before the Foxworth, Carr and Rolle (re-)signings I would have gone with neither and taken Man-CB extraordinaire Sean Smith, but now Baltimore has a solid CB corps allowing them to get Flacco another target. Too much of DHB's appeal seems to be local ties and a blazing 40, neither of which are great reasons for a pick, leaving me with TE Brandon Pettigrew (who visited with the Ravens yesterday).
