Several of the Ravens' top decision makers predictably didn't tip their hands at their annual draft luncheon yesterday in Owings Mills. However, as General Manager Ozzie Newsome, Director of Player Personnel Eric DeCosta, Director of College Scouting Joe Hortiz and head coach John Harbaugh took turns answering questions from reporters in Owings Mills, the Ravens had a representative in Madison, Wisconsin, where former Badgers center Peter Konz was...

Weather watchers described Hurricane Sandy's path as unusual as it plowed into the New Jersey coast, and satellite images may show just how strange it looked. The view from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's GOES-14 satellite shows the storm churning through the Bahamas and off the Carolinas before it makes a beeline for the Jersey shore. The animation was compiled by the Space Science and Engineering Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. GOES-14 acts as a backup to two other main weather satellites that cover the western and eastern sides of the U.S. but because of problems with GOES-13 in the east, GOES-14 was activated for October.

Mike Preston, columnist: Good move by Ravens - there are still several players they value who are available. Chris Korman, reporter: We won't know why the Ravens moved back until we see who they pick (unless they opt to tell us in the press conference we're heading to any minute), but they obviously favored Alabama's Dont'a Hightower over Courtney Upshaw. It also seems they would have liked Wisconsin guard Kevin Zeitler, but  weren't sold on drafting Badgers center/guard Peter Konz this early.

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 Wisconsin center Peter Konz. Konz, who declared for the draft after his junior season, is widely viewed as the draft's consensus top center. Background: After sitting out as a true freshman, Konz, a native of Wisconsin, started for the Badgers as a redshirt freshman. He garnered many accolades during his three seasons and in 2011 was a finalist for the Rimington Trophy, which is awarded to the nation's top center.

In advance of the first round of the 2012 NFL draft, Baltimore Sun columnist Mike Preston gives his take on six college prospects who are linked to the Ravens   in the latest mock drafts from prominent national analysts. --- Peter Schrager, FOXSports.com: Dont'a Hightower, ILB, Alabama. “Hightower played both inside and outside linebacker at Alabama and was also used at DE in some sub-packages. Ray Lewis isn't getting any younger and there still isn't an eventual “replacement” in-house.

There are no bubble-topped space colonies on the moon, or ships carrying trailblazers to tame the Martian landscape. Yet exotic new space-age products from the next frontier already are making life here on Earth a lot more interesting.Imagine zero-gravity farming; musical instruments played by touching clear plastic or by walking into a special room; helmets and vests with built-in air conditioners; and advanced industrial positioning systems for everything from computer chips to aircraft wings.

If the Ravens want Alabama linebacker Dont'a Hightower as much as some people believe that they do, I suspect their first call when Round One starts to unfold will be to the Detroit Lions, who hold the 23rd overall pick. The significance of that spot is that it's one ahead of the Pittsburgh Steelers, who reportedly covet Hightower. If the Ravens are convinced that Hightower is their guy and they are willing to pay the cost of moving up six spots, which would probably be a third or fourth-round pick, a deal shouldn't be too hard to work out. Lions senior personnel executive James Harris is the former director of pro personnel for the Ravens and he remains very close with Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome . Lions coach Jim Schwartz also is a former Ravens staff member and he remains friendly with a couple of people at the Castle, including Newsome.

The Pro Bowl guard is gone. The bookend tackles aren't great. So how does a center become the player most linked to the Ravens' first-round pick? For Peter Konz, at least, it's by offering a quick fix and a long-term answer. With left guard Ben Grubbs off to New Orleans, the Ravens need immediate help at one interior line position. With center Matt Birk's uncertain future, they'll need help at another before long. That's where Konz comes in. Among the handful of prospects the Ravens could consider Thursday night with their No. 29 overall pick, perhaps none better accommodates the team's best-player-available criteria and front-five uncertainties than the versatile Wisconsin center.

Three weeks into free agency, the Ravens have retained starting linebacker Jameel McClain, added to their defensive back depth and upgraded their special teams. But one of their glaring offseason needs remains virtually untouched. "We have to upgrade the offensive line," Ravens coach John Harbaugh saud during the owners meetings Tuesday at The Breakers hotel in Palm Beach, Fla. "I don't even know if we have a full complement of linemen to be on our 53-man roster right now. " The Ravens did re-sign veteran center Matt Birk, but they have yet to replace Pro Bowl left guard Ben Grubbs, who signed with the New Orleans Saints a couple of days into free agency.

As the Ravens await word on whether free agent left guard Evan Mathis will accept their multi-year offer, they addressed one spot on their offensive line Friday, agreeing in principle to a three-year deal with veteran center Matt Birk that is pending a physical. The re-signing of Birk, who has played the last three seasons with the Ravens, capped a busy day for the Ravens, who couldn't finalize a deal with Mathis before he returned home to Arizona to mull his options, and then watched two more of their free agents (reserve safeties Haruki Nakamura and Tom Zbikowski)
