Jared Gaither from Maryland. He was an OT who shut everyone down. I had him rated higher than Joe Thomas. He was the perfect prospect until his off the field stuff that caused him to become a supplementary draft pick to the Ravens I believe. He was a top 3 OT prospect I've ever scouted.

He's talking about Gaither

The Ravens selected him in the 5th rd. of the sup. draft

He gave the Ravens a great return on a small investment IMO.

Unfortunately BM will not allow our team to take chances on these type of players.

It's our loss in my opinion

I really liked Gaither alot but knew we wouldn't get him.

To think that we weren't willing to take a chance on a potential franchise LT for the cost of a 2008 5th rd. pick & he could have gotten seasoning during the 2007 season.

It also would have eliminated the need to take D. Brown in the 1st rd.

It is McNairs unwillingness to take chances that has led us to 0 playoff games.

The Smithiak regime has done a great job considering the personel (drafting & FA) constraints that BM has given them. (Character issues are not allowed no matter how minor thy may have been or when they occured).

This would be fine if the rest of the NFL played the personel game the same way but they dont & we miss out on some great players.

Okam was our 5th rd. pick. (What a shame)
