Chiefs #26 Pick...Ravens missed it

The Chiefs have selected Jonathon Baldwin of Pittsburgh, after the Ravens fsailed to make a selection or trade their pick in time. That goes to show a chaotic front office in action, or lacking action.
In Bladwin, the Chiefs selected Baldwin, another big play receiver to pair with Dwayne Bowe. Matt Cassel should be very excited to have another big play guy to get thr ball to. Bladwin's numbers took a dip in 2010, but that was due to inexperienced QB play as Tino Sunseri was still learning how to play the position.

The Ravens have now selected CB Jimmy Smith of Colorado. Smith is yet another CB who never picked off a pass in 2010, which is a huge red flag for me. He also only defended 4 passes last fall.

The Patriots then traded the 28th selection to the Saints, and the Saints turned that pick into Mark Ingram of Alabama. Ingram is the first RB selected in this draft, and at #28, that is an incredibly low selection. Ingram will likely be the guy who eventually pushes underproductive Reggie Bush out of the Big Easy.
