Well, we got a good game — if you like upsets, or bet the under. Tampa Bay defeated Kansas City, 31-9, in the Super Bowl LV. Sadly, this marks the end of another NFL season, but the NFL never stops. The NFL Draft is now on the clock. I was thinking about the 27th pick the Ravens currently hold and the types of players the Ravens could select. Then I started to look at the history of the 27th pick in Rounds 1 and 2. Here are some highlights:

First Round, Pick 27:
2003: Larry Johnson, RB, Chiefs
2005: Roddy White, WR, Falcons
2010: Devin McCourty, CB, Patriots
2011: Jimmy Smith, CB, Ravens
2013: DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Texans
2017: Tre’Davious White, CB, Bills
2020: Jordyn Brooks, LB, Seahawks

Second Round, Pick 59:
1984: Jeff Hostetler, QB, New York Giants
2007: Ryan Kalil, C, Panthers
2017: Tanoh Kpassagnon, DE, Chiefs
2019: Paris Campbell, WR, Colts
2020: Denzel Mims, WR, Jets

The Ravens got a gem in Jimmy Smith in 2011. Can they do it again in 2021? This week, we will start diving into the 2021 NFL Draft with players the Ravens could select in the first round in April.
