Marc Anthony Drafted in the 7th Round by the Baltimore Ravens

After a surprising fall into the late 7th round, Marc Anthony has been drafted by the Baltimore Ravens

Harry How

Although he was projected to go anywhere from the 4th to the 6th rounds, Marc Anthony was not drafted until the seventh round of the 2013 NFL Draft. He is the final piece in a defense-heavy draft from the defending champion Baltimore Ravens.

Because Baltimore has solid depth at CB, Anthony may start off as a special teams player.

Anthony was looked at being as high as a third round pick, but remained available until the end of the draft. He has decent size but his speed is lacking so he needs to resort to being a physical cover corner. He will be used mostly on special teams as the Ravens are stocked with cornerbacks, especially if Lardarius Webb makes an expected full recovery to be ready for the 2013 season. Mel Kiper's analysis: "Rare to see a fifth year senior cornerback with this much ability."
