When the 28 NFL teams open the doors to the college draft cupboard today, they'll find the shelves aren't well stocked."I guess it's about an average draft," said Bob Ackles, director of college scouting for the Arizona Cardinals.Ackles is being kind, because as the teams prepare for the 59th annual draft, which begins at 3:30 p.m., the scouts aren't exactly salivating."It's a cyclical thing," said Dick Steinberg, general manager of the New York Jets. "We've been of the opinion that the talent lately has not been as plentiful as it was in the 1970s and early 1980s, but we've had better drafts than this in recent years."

The Ingram family might want to consider delaying its NFL draft celebration one day.Steve Ingram will be the guest of honor at a party in Fairmont Heights on Saturday, in anticipation that he will be taken in the first two rounds of the NFL draft. Ingram is one of the best offensive linemen to play at Maryland, but he knows that factors like a slow 40-yard -- time at the national scouting combine could cost him.When Joel Buchsbaum ran a mock draft in the January edition of Pro Football Weekly, he had Ingram as the second-best guard prospect and going to the Miami Dolphins with the 25th pick in the first round.

COLLEGE PARK -- When the seniors on the Maryland football team lined up for the final wind sprint of their college careers at a practice before last week's Emerald Bowl in San Francisco, junior linebacker Erin Henderson was notable for his presence. Terrapins coach Ralph Friedgen said later that it could have been taken as a sign of Henderson's intention to forgo his senior year. Yesterday, Henderson announced he would enter his name in this year's NFL draft, scheduled for April 26-27.

When the Ravens came within striking distance of picking a viable offensive tackle during the NFL draft, the options disappeared. Demand for quality offensive tackles quickly outweighed the supply Thursday as four were taken ahead of the Ravens' selection in the first round, including Notre Dame's Zack Martin by the Dallas Cowboys one pick before the Ravens drafted inside linebacker C.J. Mosley. The Cowboys won a coin flip over the Ravens at the NFL scouting combine in February for the 16th overall pick.

ASHBURN, Va. -- For Rob Johnson, Chad May and John Walsh, big-name quarterbacks from big-name schools, it was a day of disappointment.For Rich Owens, an unheralded defensive lineman from a school noted more for academics than football, it was a day for celebration.Those are the typical reactions on the second day of the NFL draft, when the players who thought they were going higher wonder what went wrong and the players who thought they might not be drafted are thrilled to get selected.Southern Cal's Johnson, Kansas State's May and Brigham Young's Walsh hoped to go high in the draft.

The first round of the 2012 NFL draft is three weeks away, and the Ravens have a similar list of needs as they did when free agency began four weeks ago. In some cases, like with the offensive line, their holes have become even more pronounced. The Ravens don't have an experienced left guard or long-term answers at center or left tackle. They also haven't added an impact pass rusher, another wide receiver or an explosive kick returner. And they haven't addressed depth concerns at running back, linebacker, defensive line and safety.

The first round of the 2011 NFL draft takes place in New York City next Thursday with plenty of uncertainty and intrigue -- and indifference from some disenchanted fans -- as the football freeze unthaws for draft weekend. It will be interesting to see how the draft unfolds during the lockout. Usually, free agency takes place before the draft, but not this year, so draft philosophies will be changed. Players can't be traded, so that could cut down on the number of trades. And with a rookie wage scale likely to be in place post-lockout, teams might be willing to gamble on high-risk players since it won't cost them as much to roll the dice.
