With the number fifty-six pick in the 2013 NFL draft, the Baltimore Ravens have selected Kansas State linebacker Arthur Brown. Brown was another player potentially linked to the Bengals and was also thought of as a potential first rounder. Injury concerns surrounding his shoulder, however, drove him to the bottom of the second round, where the Ravens swooped in and traded up to get him. They swapped picks with the Seahawks and threw in an additional fifth and sixth pick to accomplish the move.
Brown, if healthy, is an instant upgrade for the Ravens. He is small but extremely instinctual, and has the speed and toughness to be a three-down player for Baltimore. This is the second pick the Ravens have used on defense thus far in the 2013 draft.
