Up next in the SB Nation Arizona mock draft are Ray Lewis, Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens. They have a few needs, but obviously they did all right. With the draft coming up, they will be looking for talent to fill their receiver, offensive line and defensive backfield needs. To do so, they will use their first pick to draft:
Torrey Smith, WR, Maryland
We are already aware of the Ravens' receiver need. Anquan Boldin and T.J. Houshmandzadeh came up small when they were needed most in in the playoffs. What the team lacked was a consistent deep threat. Smith is exactly that. He posted a 4.37 40-yard dash at the combine and great leaping ability. He can also return kicks. But having a guy like Smith to stretch the defenses, that will only help Joe Flacco and it will also free up the older guys underneath, allowing them to make and create big plays in the passing game.
