Months after trading veteran wide receiver Anquan Boldin to the San Francisco 49ers following a contract dispute, the Ravens waited until the seventh round to draft a wide receiver. Ravens assistant general manager Eric DeCosta attributed that to how their draft board stacked up with only a few elite receiver prospects like former Dunbar star Tavon Austin, but didn't rule out the possibility of acquiring an established receiver prior to the regular season. "I think the hunt goes on," DeCosta said Monday night during The Baltimore Sun Sports Forum.

Bowie Baysox general manager Brian Shallcross routinely hears from parents who plead with him to look at up-and-coming players or from fans who question strategic moves the Class AA minor-league baseball team makes. They do not realize that his job is a different ballgame from that of the general manager of a major-league team. While the GM of the Baltimore Orioles or the Washington Nationals spends much of his time tackling player personnel issues, Shallcross' role is more like that of a business owner, juggling ticket holders, sponsors, vendors at Prince George's Stadium and community events involving the team.
