The weekly Baltimore Ravens chat was not surprisingly loaded with draft questions. You can click right here for a full transcript. Here are some highlights:

Ryan (Baltimore): If Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is gone by No. 17, what would you think of the Ravens drafting Dennard or Gilbert if they are there? It would fill a need and give the Ravens a potential starter next year if they cut Webb.

Jamison Hensley (ESPN): I believe cornerback is the dark horse choice for the Ravens in the first two rounds. Darqueze Dennard and Justin Gilbert are the top two corners in the draft. There's a chance both will be gone before the Ravens select at No. 17. I wouldn't have a problem with the Ravens taking either one in the first round. The Ravens need a nickel back this year and could use a starter in 2015, when Lardarius Webb's cap number increases to $11 million.

Bobby (Baltimore): What's more likely: the Ravens adding a cornerback in the third or fourth round or a defensive lineman?

Jamison Hensley (ESPN): Cornerback. Ravens are in good shape at defensive line with Brandon Williams and Kapron Lewis-Moore. There is more of a need at cornerback after losing Corey Graham.

Mark (Pennsylvania): Is there any chance the Ravens still sign someone like offensive tackle Eric Winston before the draft? It would give the Ravens only one real need at free safety heading into the draft.

Jamison Hensley (ESPN): Winston played six years for Kubiak, so there is a connection. But Ravens coach John Harbaugh recently said there are no current talks with him. So, don't expect anything to happen with him before the draft.

Eric (Bel Air): Are the Ravens considering drafting Terrance West to add depth at RB? I think he would be a great addition and impact our running game a lot! And theres not even question that the kid is a hard worker!

Jamison Hensley (ESPN): West is among the running back candidates that all teams are going to be looking at when it comes to the third and fourth rounds.

Jerry (Eastern Shore): When in the draft do you expect the Ravens to draft a tight end? Who do you think could be possible targets?

Jamison Hensley (ESPN): Here is how I see the TE class: Eric Ebron (first round), Jace Amaro (second round), Austin Seferian-Jenkins (second or third round), Troy Niklas (third round) and C.J. Fiedorowicz (third or fourth round).
