Draft 2010: Breaking down the defensive tackles


There are many analysts and mock drafts that have the Ravens selecting a Defensive Tackle with their twenty-fifth pick in the Draft.  The team could use some added depth and they look to improve upon the pass rush. Defensive Tackle Terrance Cody, Alabama, visited with the Ravens last week.  In addition to Terrance Cody, this year’s Draft class has an outstanding variety of defensive lineman.

Take a look at the latest Defensive Tackles predictions for the Ravens:


Wes Bunting, National Football Post

Terrance Cody, DT, Alabama

The Ravens not only have Cody penciled in for a visit, but with the team already addressing its wide receiver needs this offseason, getting an immovable nose tackle at the end of round one is quite a find.” http://www.nationalfootballpost.com

Terrence Cody, DT, Alabama

The addition of Cody could make this dominant defense that much more dangerous. Cody would allow Haloti Ngata more flexibility and allow Kelly Gregg to be more of a rotational player. Ray Lewis could practically go untouched by blockers for games at a time.” http://www.nfldraftblitz.com/mockdrafts.htm


Jarett Bell picks:

Terrence Cody, DT Alabama

Nate Davis picks:

Dan Williams, DT, Tennessee

Pete O’Brian

Terrence Cody, DT, Alabama



Pete Prisco, CBS Sports

Jared Ordrick, DT, Penn State

He would fit perfectly as a 3-4 defensive end. He’s a Ravens-style player.”


Charles Davis NFL.com

Jared Odrick, DT, Penn State

Haloti Ngata, one of the NFL’s best defensive tackles, would like a counterpart inside. The versatility of Odrick helps the Ravens front right away.”

Bucky Brooks, NFL.com

Dan Williams, DT, Tennessee

“The Ravens have an obvious need at tight end, but this team typically takes the best available player on the board regardless of position. Williams would give

the Ravens a young defensive tackle to pair with Haloti Ngata in the middle of their defense.”


Pat Kirwin, NFL.com

Carlos Dunlap, DE, Florida

“The Ravens fixed their wide receiver issues this offseason with Anquan Boldin, Donte Stallworth and the re-signing of Derrick Mason. Now on to a defense that lost Justin Bannan and Dwan Edwards in free agency. Trevor Pryce isn’t getting any younger. At 6-foot-6, 277 pounds, Dunlap could become a fine player. Ray Lewis will shape him up quickly.
