Some notes:

  • With the losses of Marshal Yanda (retired) and James Hurst (released), the offensive line is a huge priority, especially the interior.
  • The Ravens have nine draft picks now with five of them in the first three rounds.
  • Adding playmakers should still be a priority.
  • This is a deep draft if you need a wide receiver (WR mock coming soon).
  • Inside linebacker is not the deepest position and like other years is very top heavy. If you do not draft a Kenneth Murray, Patrick Queen or Malik Harrison in the top two rounds, there is no need to reach before the fourth or fifth round for one.
  • IDL is no longer a priority for the Ravens after free agency.
  • You can never have enough defensive backs or edge rushers, so if the Ravens add to those positions, no one should be surprised.
  • BPA (best player available) is always going to be a Ravens strategy.
