The Baltimore Ravens have chosen guard Kevin Zeitler, with a pretty wide margin, too. The Ravens certainly need a new starting guard now that Ben Grubbs has left for the New Orleans Saints, but Zeitler isn't really an improvement over Grubbs. This feels more like treading water than anything else for the Ravens. Still, they have a talented team, and if Flacco can improve his play they should be Super Bowl contenders once more.

Now we come to the New England Patriots, again. Somehow, they manage to have three or more first- and second-round picks in every single year. It's quite impressive. They used their first pick to select Josh Robinson, helping their secondary. But they still have needs, especially on defense. Another defensive back would help, but the Pats are always looking for new pass rushers. So, who do you think they'll select?
