Ravens trade out of first round
By Jamison Hensley
Like they did in 2010, the Baltimore Ravens traded out of the first round. Giving up the No. 29 pick to the Minnesota Vikings, the Ravens received the Vikings' picks in the second (35th) and fourth rounds (98th).
If the Ravens stayed in the first round, they could have had their choice of Alabama outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw or Georgia Tech wide receiver Stephen Hill. Now, with the third pick of the second round on Friday, the Ravens could still get one of those players while picking up an additional fourth-rounder.
