The Ravens haven't drafted a quarterback since taking Joe Flacco 18th overall in 2008. With Troy Smith and John Beck gone and Marc Bulger set to become a free agent, there is a decent chance the Ravens will take a quarterback for the first since they decided the lanky kid Delaware with a rocket arm was their guy for the future.
“It’s probably not going to be in the first round, but if there’s a [quarterback] available that we like, we’ll pull the trigger if we think he’ll make us better,” Ravens director of player personnel Eric DeCosta told the team's website.
That's not to say the Ravens are looking to replace Flacco, nor should they be. But at 26, he is no longer a kid, and the Ravens might draft a quarterback that they can eventually cultivate into an asset a few years from now (kind of like what the Eagles did with Kevin Kolb).
