Ourlads.com NFL draft expert Dan Shonka joined the Norris & Davis show to talk about the NFL Draft. The first round took place Thursday night and with their first pick the Baltimore Ravens selected safety Matt Elam from the University of Florida.
Steve asked about Dan projecting the Ravens to take Matt Elam. Dan said that the pick made sense. Elam makes big plays and the Ravens needed to get stronger up the middle of the defense.
Bob asked if Elam’s height is going to be a big problem in the NFL. Dan said take a look at the players leaping ability. If a shorter guy can jump then you will be fine and Matt Elam has a 36 inch vertical which is great.
Steve wanted to know who was the best option of the guys left for the Ravens. Dan said he definitely would take Elam so he believes the Ravens made the right choice.
