Update 9:48 p.m.: With the Jets picking North Carolina defensive end Quinton Coples, it creates more of an opportunity for the Ravens to land either Alabama linebackers Courtney Upshaw or Dont'a Hightower. The Ravens also like South Carolina defensive end Melvin Ingram, who had 10 sacks in 2011. Ingram could also play outside linebacker.    Update 9:28 p.m.: Like most teams and fans around the NFL, the Ravens couldn't predict the amount of trades in the top 10 picks, but they at least have been able to match up the teams with the players they chose.

Each day this week leading up to Thursday's NFL draft, we will highlight one prospect whom the Ravens could draft with the 29th overall pick. Today's player is Alabama inside linebacker Dont'a Hightower, one of four Crimson Tide defenders who are expected to be selected in the first round. Background: Born and raised in Tennessee, the now-22-year-old started as a true freshman for Alabama coach Nick Saban. He blew out his knee in 2009, but returned a year later to captain a Tide defense that allowed an NCAA-best 8.8 points per game.

David Shepeta, 21, of Glen Burnie was sentenced to 15 years in prison yesterday in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court for second-degree murder in the February 2000 death of Robert Hightower, who would have turned 20 tomorrow. The sentence was part of a plea bargain. Shepeta had entered an Alford plea last year, in which he did not admit guilt but acknowledged that sufficient evidence existed to convict him. His testimony against Shane Pardoe helped secure a first-degree murder conviction against him. Circuit Judge Pamela L. North sentenced Shepeta to 30 years in prison, with half of the time suspended, followed by five years of supervised probation.

A Glen Burnie man convicted of first-degree murder lost his bid for a new trial yesterday when an Anne Arundel County judge said she did not believe defense claims that jurors wrongly discussed the case. The ruling sets the stage for sentencing Shane E. Pardoe, 21, who could receive up to life without parole for his role in the death of a neighbor, Robert E. Hightower. After a hearing in which testimony was taken over three days this spring from defense witnesses who made the allegations and from jurors and alternates who heard the case against Pardoe, Circuit Judge Pamela L. North upheld the verdict.

In a gray shirt with a collar low enough to show the word "murder" tattooed on his neck, Shane E. Pardoe stood before Anne Arundel County Circuit Judge Pamela L. North yesterday and begged for a second chance. "I'm sorry a thousand times," the 20-year-old convicted murderer from Glen Burnie told the judge. "I know I need to be punished for the wrongful things I did do, but I beg you to have mercy on me." Calling Pardoe a "very, very dangerous person," North sentenced him to 55 years in prison for the killing of his neighbor, Robert E. Hightower, in February 2000.

Two 20-year-old Glen Burnie men have been charged with first-degree murder after they led police to the body of a 19-year-old man who had been missing since he attended a party at one of their apartments last week, Anne Arundel County police said yesterday. Shane Earl Pardoe of the 300 block of Lori Drive and David Joseph Shepeta of the 100 block of Kent Road were arrested Wednesday after police interviewed them and reportedly learned the body of Robert Edward Hightower was removed from Pardoe's apartment early Feb. 11. Police said they were then led to Hightower's body in a wooded area near Shot Town Road about 20 miles from Pardoe's apartment.

Herma J. Hightower has barely begun to unpack the boxes that transported her office paraphernalia from Iowa to Baltimore, where she now occupies the director's suite for one of the Internal Revenue Service's largest districts. But she has retrieved a few favorite items that made the trip.There's a giant "good luck" card adorned with the colorful palm prints of children from the day care center Ms. Hightower established in her previous IRS position. And then there's the dinosaur poster with the poignant caption, "History is full of giants who couldn't adapt."

Does hip-hop have heart?" a journalist repeatedly asks in G, as though the answer is both mysterious and revelatory. Of course, as anyone who's ever heard Diddy sing "I'll Be Missing You" can attest, hip-hop has plenty of heart. And that's pretty much the problem with G, too: It tries way too hard to find answers that everyone already knows. Envisioned as an African-American version of The Great Gatsby, with hip-hop replacing jazz as the soundtrack of Long Island's opulent Hamptons community, G tells its story in strokes way too broad for its own good.
