What Are the Baltimore Ravens' Needs in the 2013 NFL Draft?

Aaron NaglerNFL National Lead WriterFebruary 5, 2013

When you are Super Bowl champions, you are generally the team least likely to sweat when it comes to the NFL draft. 

GM Ozzie Newsome has done an amazing job building this Baltimore Ravens team. 

Ray Lewis will no longer be the heart and soul of the Ravens. However, Joe Flacco now becomes the number one offseason move for Ozzie Newsome. It's safe to say that signing the Super Bowl MVP will be Newsome's top priority. 

Next on Newsome's list will be replacing what some think is the irreplaceable Ray Lewis. There's no doubt his leadership can be replaced. But Ozzie needs to take a close look at the linebackers in the 2013 NFL draft. 

Matt Miller and I rounded up a bunch of football fans, gave them hats and B/R swag, then headed over to Highland Park here in New York City and tried to figure out where the Ravens have the most pressing needs heading into the 2013 NFL draft. 

Let us know in the comments below where you agree or disagree with our assessments and what other needs we might have missed.
