Ravens go defense, land Alabama linebacker Courtney Upshaw

Courtney Upshaw, outside linebacker, Alabama (6-2, 265)

The Ravens have a need for a strong side rush backer in their 3-4 front and Upshaw is a perfect fit. He’s not a dynamic pass rusher. However, he’s got a good motor, knows how to use his hands and turns speed into power well off the edge. Plus, he will instantly be able to stand up vs. the run game in the NFL and looks like a solid future starter.
