I can't say I ever thought of Joe Flacco while watching Cam Newton terrorize SEC defenses this past fall. But based on Newton's pro day workout at Auburn this week, NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock thinks a comparison can be made between the Ravens quarterback and the Heisman Trophy winner. No, seriously. " I might draw a parallel with Joe Flacco ," Mayock said. "A couple of years ago, Joe Flacco came out of a spread offense [at Delaware]. He’s a big guy and I think what people needed him to do was kind of hasten the process.

The Ravens are optimistic they will find the type of wide receiver they are looking for this offseason. And after listening to Mike Mayock's conference call on Tuesday, you can see why they are so confident. The respected NFL Network analyst feels this is “the best wide receiver draft” that he has “seen in years.” The top wide receiver in Mayock's eyes is Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins, but he predicts that Watkins will be “long gone” before the Ravens are on the clock with the 17th overall pick in May's draft.

Months before the NFL draft launches in May, the Ravens are unofficially on the clock. The Ravens are in major need of reinforcements, particularly at wide receiver, offensive line and tight end, after a disappointing 8-8 season in which they failed to qualify for the playoffs for the first time since the 2007 season. As the Ravens arrived Wednesday at the NFL scouting combine to evaluate college football prospects, draft analysts are praising this incoming rookie class as the kind that can provide an immediate influx of talent.

It might be hard to imagine that anyone is more psyched-up for Thursday night's matchup between the Ravens and 49ers than Baltimore and San Francisco fans. But there is. The team at NFL Network, which is cablecasting the game from Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium at 8 p.m. Thanksgiving day, is sky high. Executives and announcers at the league-owned cable channel see the match-up between two division-leading teams coached by brothers as one of the biggest contests and most compelling story lines in its six seasons of telecasting games in prime time.

If you must tear down new Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, could you please leave his school out of it? Stick to his choice of fabric softener. Maybe the guy tips only 15 percent. Maybe he introduced a future Hall of Fame pitcher to a young country music singer. But does he have to catch so much flak-o for playing at the University of Delaware? So his team dressed like the University of Michigan, without the Big Ten schedule as an accessory. Big deal. So his passing graded out to an A+ against Football Championship Subdivision opponents.
