OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome has been extremely successful in the NFL draft over the past 16 years, mainly because he and his staff are so adept at judging talent.
Another big reason: Newsome rarely plays a pat hand.
Baltimore has the 29th overall pick and seven subsequent selections in the 2012 draft later this month. Before the draft ends, the odds are favorable that Newsome will make a deal to move up or get more picks.
Newsome has made a trade before or during every NFL draft since Baltimore won the Super Bowl in 2001. Newsome said Wednesday that the Ravens will soon discuss scenarios in which they trade up 10 spots or back 10 spots.
Previous trades netted quarterback Joe Flacco and tackle Michael Oher.
