04/30/2012 - The Ravens' haul of eight draft picks included four players apiece on offense and defense. The Ravens needed to identify potential replacements at guard with Pro Bowl offensive guard Ben Grubbs signing a $36 million contract with the New Orleans Saints; at strong-side linebacker after Jarret Johnson signed a $19 million contract with the San Diego Chargers and at running back after Ricky Williams abruptly retired after the season. "You always try to draft the best player out there and try to make your team as strong as you can," Harbaugh said. "There's also the element of need.
