Default Draft day likely trades?

Anyone think we're gonna be in for some trades?

Hope we trade out of the 1st and get a good 2nd & 3rd rounder

Maybe Gaither to Lions for 2nd (pick 34)

I really see no upside in trading Gaither.

I'd be surprised if we didn't move back at some point, especially as we're short in the 3rd and 4th.

The only reason why I can see us trading Gaither is if they're expecting hes going to want a massive contract soon. As for trades on draft day, I think anything is possible. The Ravens draft team always do an excellent job so I think they'll position us where we need to be

With Gaither he is gonna want Left Takle money and will be playing on the right once Oher gets moved over.

Already rumours of a poor work ethic, what's gonna happen when he gets the big payday?

Guess it depends on how confident they are in cousins filling the RT or finding someone else with one of the fifth rounders (or a 3rd or 4th rounder they may get back).

I'm in the minority of thinking Oher is better as a RT than LT. No doubt he has the physical ability, but he's an aggressive player and I think his temperament really suits the right side a lot better.

Gaither should get paid LT money, he is a pure LT in all aspects. He has motivation issues, but with those issues he's still one of the better LTs in the league. If you let him go you're weakening the line.

And if they do decide to trade Gaither it needs to be for more than one pick. One of them is going to have to be used to pick a replacement O-lineman, there's no value in it if you don't get an extra pick, to me.

And also, we let Adam Terry go and need another back-up tackle anyway. There's just too much of a hole being opened up if Gaither goes.
