OWINGS MILLS Brian Burns Jersey , Md. (AP) — Baltimore Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta entered his first NFL draft with a long list of needs, eight picks and the pressure of measuring up to a man who traditionally flourished during this three-day event.It’s too early to determine if DeCosta will fare as well as Ozzie Newsome, who built two Super Bowl winners over a 23-year run. It will also take a while before DeCosta’s first draft can be legitimately assessed.Still, the 48-year-old rookie GM addressed each one of the team’s most notable voids — receiver, pass rusher and interior offensive lineman — with confidence while absorbing the advice of Newsome, coach John Harbaugh and college scouting director Joe Hortiz.“We got a lot accomplished,” DeCosta said late Saturday afternoon. “We added a lot of speed, we added some playmakers, we added some big guys. I think we helped our football team quite a bit.”The Ravens needed a receiver after losing John Brown and Michael Crabtree to free agency, so DeCosta picked Marquise Brown with the 25th overall selection and backed it up by taking Notre Dame wideout Miles Boykin in the third round. Two receivers in the top three picks may seem excessive, but the burly Boykin and the diminutive Brown add different elements to a passing game that must improve if Baltimore is to repeat as AFC North champions and make a deep playoff run.“The bottom line is, these are two really fast guys that make plays http://www.panthersfootballauthentic.com/greg-little-jersey-authentic ,” Harbaugh said. “And that’s what we were looking for.”Eager to fill the hole left by the departure of sack specialists Terrell Suggs and Za’Darius Smith through free agency, DeCosta drafted Louisiana Tech defensive end Jaylon Ferguson, who happened to break Suggs’ FBS record with 45 career sacks. Ferguson could start in the season opener against Miami on Sept. 8.During the final day of the draft, the Ravens added speedy running back Justice Hill of Oklahoma State, 310-pound offensive guard Ben Powers of Oklahoma and Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley,the team’s final pick of the draft (at No. 197 overall).“Trace McSorley was kind of a sleeper pick for us,” DeCosta said. “We brought him in as a quarterback but he’s got the potential to do some other things, too. This is a great spot for him.”Lamar Jackson is the starter and Robert Griffin III is the backup, leaving little room for McSorley. That didn’t temper his delight of being selected in the sixth round.“Being in the NFL has been a dream of mine since I was a little kid,” McSorley said: “My goal is to come in and play the quarterback position. But I can do a lot of different things on the football field.”So can the seven other players that DeCosta drafted.“There were some things that we needed to build our team up,” Harbaugh said. “We got guys that fit us personality-wise, need-wise and talent-wise. I’m really happy with the way our roster looks now compared to three days ago.”Some other things to know about the Ravens’ 2019 draft:WHO THEY GOTAfter getting Brown on Thursday Will Grier Jersey , DeCosta snagged Ferguson and Boykin in the third round Friday before taking five players Saturday. The flurry began with Hill and Powers, followed by Southern Cal cornerback Iman Lewis-Hill, all in the fourth round. Texas A&M defensive tackle Daylon Mack was taken in the fifth round, followed by McSorley.SURPRISE MOVEBaltimore really didn’t need a third quarterback, but McSorley was impressive in his workout at the team facility. “He’s our kind of guy,” Harbaugh said. “He’s gritty and tough, and that’s what we look for.”OKLAHOMA’S OKThe Ravens appear to be collecting players from Oklahoma. After drafting former Sooners Mark Andrews and Orlando Brown Jr. last year, the Ravens grabbed Brown and Powers from Oklahoma and added Hill out of Oklahoma State. “There are a whole bunch of Oklahoma players up there,” Powers said. “It’s going to be a lot of fun.”WHAT’S NEXT?DeCosta isn’t done yet. His to-do list includes getting a middle linebacker to replace the departed C.J. Mosley.“We’re just starting out this offseason,” he said before the draft. “As Ozzie used to say, ‘We don’t have to play games in April. We wait until September. I believe we’ll have a good, competitive http://www.panthersfootballauthentic.com/christian-miller-jersey-authentic , hard-nosed typical Ravens team on the field when we start.”He added: “We have a history of doing well in undrafted free agency.” It’s hard to say whether the New York Giants are engaging in wishful thinking or there is something to their optimism these days.The reality is the Giants have a 1-4 record heading into Thursday night’s game against the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles (2-3) and they are facing long odds in a bid to make the playoffs in coach Pat Shurmur’s first season.The struggling Eagles have beaten New York in their last three meetings and seven of the last eight. The Giants are coming off an excruciating last-second 33-31 loss to Carolina on a 63-yard field goal by Graham Gano, and now they have to rebound with three days of preparation.But the Giants believe there is reason for hope. Their offense scored 30 points for the first time since the end of the 2015 season. The team rallied from an 11-point fourth-quarter deficit to take a lead with just over a minute to play, only to be denied by a near-record kick. And they did all this despite dealing with some ill-chosen words by star receiver Odell Beckham Jr., about Eli Manning and the team’s heart in the days leading up to the game.“Very optimistic,” Beckham said Tuesday when asked about the team. “I’ve always said, it’s a long season, and we have an opportunity to come in here in a big, big division game and be able to reshape our season. We know what we have in front of us, short week, just coming off of a tough loss, so we’re all just trying to get our minds wrapped around what the game plan is, how we can come out and best beat Philly.”The Eagles tend to bring out some of the best in the Giants. Despite winning only three games last season Jordan Scarlett Jersey , they lost two games to Philadelphia by eight points, with the first coming on a last-second 61-yard field goal by Jake Elliott. The second was 34-29 in a game New York trailed by two points entering the final quarter.The Giants also could be getting some key players back. Linebacker and leading pass rusher Olivier Vernon, who has yet to play because of a high ankle sprain, is very close to ready. Tight end Evan Engram, who missed the last two games with a sprained knee, was going to test his knee in practice on Tuesday. Both were limited.Engram watched the telecast of the game in Charlotte this past weekend and was encouraged.“There was a point in that game where maybe last year or the old DNA of this team would’ve given up or would’ve tapped out,” Engram said.Rookie halfback Saquon Barkley said the Giants scored 30 and left points on the field.“We got to continue to keep growing, continue to keep working and to be able to put up 30 points,” Barkley said. “I think that game showed it was the toughness, the grit, the passion that we played with as a team, and obviously the outcome wasn’t the way we wanted to be David Montgomery Jersey , but you could learn a lot of things from that game and take that game a long way.”NOTES: PK Aldrick Rosas, perfect on field goals and PATs this season, did not practice again because of a sore quad. The Giants have signed Marshall Koehn to their practice squad. He was in training camp. He was working for Randy’s Flooring in Coralville, Iowa when the Giants called Monday. “I looked at my phone because I was making a delivery and there were two calls from my dad, two from my mom and two more my agent. Everyone was freaking out.” Needless to say, he found his way to New Jersey. The Giants can wait until 4 p.m. on game day to active Koehn if needed. … LB Connor Barwin (knee) and WR Russell Shepard (neck) also did not practice. Barwin has been dealing with a knee issue all season.__
