Our 2013 Big Blue View Community Mock Draft closes this afternoon in disappointing fashion. The Baltimore Ravens have the 32nd pick, having won the Super Bowl. I reached out to our selected GM, 'Kung_Fu_vio,' for a few days and got no response. So, I will make the pick myself.

Manti Te'o, LB, Notre Dame

I think you know the reasons. Ray Lewis has retired and the Ravens need a middle linebacker of the future. Te'o, whatever you think of him, is good value and a good fit here. Some think the Ravens might go for a safety here, but for me Te'o is the pick.
