Baltimore Ravens 2012 Draft Rewind

Let's take a quick look back at how the Ravens fared in the memorable 2012 NFL Draft

Players drafted: Eight

Players drafted still on roster: four

First round pick: None

Notable late round pick/UDFA: Justin Tucker K, Texas

Baltimore wouldn't actually make a selection until the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft, after trading out of the first round with Minnesota.

The Ravens first selection would be Alabama outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw, who was drafted to provide a complimentary piece across from Terrell Suggs at outside linebacker. After a good rookie season, Upshaw hasnt been able to match the same level of production, in part due to the Ravens signing Elvis Dumervil. Grade: 1 

Iowa State offensive tackle Kelechi Osemele was the Ravens additional  second round pick. The former Cyclone has proven to be a valuable offensive lineman and has seen regular time at both tackle and guard in his three seasons with Baltimore. Grade: 1

Third round tailback Bernard Pierce from Temple spent two seasons spelling Ray Rice before he was released from Baltimore prior to the 2014 season after an arrest. He is signed with Jacksonville for 2015. Grade: 0

Delaware guard Gino Gradkowski was another versatile lineman who was the Ravens’ starting center in 2013 but didnt start any games the following year and was traded to Denver following the 2014 season. Grade: 0

Another fourth round pick, safety Christian Thompson from South Carolina State spent one full season in Baltimore before being cut in October of 2013. Grade: 0

Fifth round corner Asa Jackson from Cal Poly only saw some spot starts in his first few seasons but saw a solid amount of playing time in 2015, logging career highs in tackles and pass breakups. Grade: 2

Wide receiver Tommy Streeter, a sixth round pick from Miami, spent one season in Baltimore and has been with multiple teams since being cut. Grade: 0

Deangelo Tyson, a defensive lineman from Georgia and Baltimore’s final pick of the draft in the seventh round, has been a spot starter along the defensive line in his three seasons with Baltimore. Grade: 3

One of Baltimore’s biggest contributors from this draft was a UDFA, in kicker Justin Tucker from Texas. The Pro-Bowler has been Baltimore’s kicker for the last three season. Grade: 4


Total Grade: 11

The 2012 draft is another example of how the Ravens are one of the best teams when it comes to evaluating talent. Although they haven't gotten a ton of production out of their early picks, they have gotten great value out of their later round picks while also retaining those impact players.
