2014 NFL mock draft: S Calvin Pryor to Baltimore Ravens with 17th pick

With the 17th pick in the 2014 Mile High Report Community Mock Draft, Baltimore Ravens GM mikebirty selects...

My draft strategy for Baltimore was to pick at a position of need and to take a player with a funny name.  But with Ha Ha Clinton-Dix taken by Chicago, my strategy was thrown into disarray, and I actually had to do some research.

If any of the top three tackles are left, Baltimore will take one.  In this scenario, with all three gone, then this would be an ideal spot for a trade.  If Denver, for example, has really fallen in love with linebacker C.J. Mosley, then here would be where they could take him - it would probably cost a third to move up this far.  Picking later in the first round would allow Baltimore to look at picking one of the second level of tackles, a defensive line player, a wide receiver or even a tight end.

With the 17th overall pick in the 2014 MHR Community Mock Draft, the Baltimore Ravens select...

Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville

Staying put means it has to be Pryor. He is a physical safety who hits hard.  He would be paired with last year's first round pick Matt Elam, and it would mean that Baltimore has the back end of their defense set for the next few years.  He'll have to fill Ed Reed's shoes but with some overly aggressive and vicious hits to show on his highlight reel he could end up doing that and sending half his weekly pay to the league office too.
