Ravens trade out of first round
By James Walker
The Baltimore Ravens passed on the No. 25 overall pick in the NFL draft.
Instead, they traded with the Denver Broncos to acquire three picks, which includes a second-, third- and fourth-rounder from Denver. The Broncos used the pick on former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow.
Baltimore entered the draft with only five selections following the trade to get receiver Anquan Boldin. But now the Ravens have seven total picks, including two in the second round.
The Ravens almost had a shot at receiver Dez Bryant. But the Dallas Cowboys traded up one spot ahead of Baltimore to take the dynamic receiver.
