Ravens get seventh-round pick for Bryant McKinnie

After the 2013 season came to an end, tackle Bryant McKinnie said he’d like to return to the Dolphins in 2014.

Miami has since signed Branden Albert to play left tackle and shown little public sign of interest in having McKinnie return as a backup or contender for the right tackle job, but McKinnie’s future in South Florida won’t impact what they have to send to the Ravens as compensation for acquiring McKinnie during the 2013 season.

The Ravens announced that they will get a seventh-round pick in return for McKinnie, who was originally dealt for a conditional draft pick. The conditions on the pick had to do with playing time and McKinnie started 10 games for the Dolphins after arriving in Miami. Baltimore now has two picks in the seventh round and one pick in the first, second, third and sixth rounds. They dealt their fourth and fifth-round picks to Jacksonville for tackle Eugene Monroe, who they re-signed this month.

McKinnie recently amended his hopes for the 2014 season for a chance to compete for a job in Miami or anywhere else in the league. His play in 2013 didn’t do much to recommend him for that opportunity, but it still might be enough to help the Ravens in the future if they use their extra pick wisely.

  1. Per the draft trade value charts, the Ravens could trade down from 17 to 19 and pick up 4th and 5th round pics. I’m betting a big stack of dollars the Ravens trade down during the first round.

  2. & the Ravens also have 4 Comp Draft picks coming, so they should at least fill those 4th & 5th Round Picks back in.

  3. It’s slightly better than a ham sandwich, or in other words, fair market value for what was given up.

  4. Oh stop your chest pounding. A 7th is worth nothing! In fact, Miami could care less in that they get a 7th from San Francisco for that Big Sissy Martin we got rid of. So thanks for McKinnie, it cost nothing and he played well.

  5. i love the Steelers fans who no resort to bragging about the Ravens finishing in third. while technically this is true, the two teams did finish with the same record. how the mighty Steelers have fallen

  6. I read most posts on PFT with a bit of a tint. Fans will be fans, and loyalty usually trumps sense. This makes for good reading. However every Ravens thread is hammered by Steeler fans who are WAY out of the loop. If, I were a Steeler fan, I would take stock in the shape my own team is in before I make a complete dummy of myself on another teams thread. I am completely in tune with the rivalry and the emotion that these two teams bring but C’mon!!!!! Your team just lost Cotchery, They couldn’t sign MJD, and they are 30th out of 32 in cap space. And, you go onother teams threads and trash talk? Look around, its not just Ravens threads, its every other team…… They surely lack any substance and validity when your own team is in such a mess. I know ” We have 6 rings, blah, blah.” Clue to Steeler fans…….. THEY have six rings!! You however, are without a leg to stand on!

    LaxCoach37-McKinnie Played well???????? Why didn’t they resign him then???

    Idiotic comment

  8. It was well worth a 7th round pick to have a LT that actually knows how to block and doesn’t QUIT ON HIS TEAM at the first sign of adversity.

  9. Meanwhile the Steelers do not lose a draft pick for the Tomlin on the field incident. As it should be.

  10. A seventh round pick, that’s a steal

    I wonder why Steeler fans think it’s important to point out 2nd and 3rd in the division last year. You used to think bigger than the division.
