When the 2021 NFL Draft begins in Cleveland April 29, the Baltimore Ravens will look to fill several key holes on the roster. While they have added players in free agency, one area of need they still need to address is wide receiver. The Ravens have six draft picks in 2021, so what if they decided to fix the wide receiver problem forever? Here are three receivers they could draft with each selection. In 2020 I suggested this. Let’s take a look at 2021.
Round 1, Pick 27
Might Be: Terrace Marshall Jr., LSU
Could Be: Kadarius Toney, Florida
Should Be: Rashod Bateman, Minnesota
Round 2, Pick 58
Might Be: Nico Collins, Michigan
Could Be: Amon-Ra St. Brown, Southern California
Should Be: Dyami Brown, North Carolina
Round 3, Pick 104
Might Be: Seth Williams, Auburn
Could Be: D’Wayne Eskridge, Western Michigan
Should Be: Tylan Wallace, Oklahoma State
Round 4, Pick 131
Might Be: Josh Imatorbhebhe, Illinois
Could Be: Sage Surratt, Wake Forest
Should Be: Austin Watkins, UAB
Round 5, Picks 171 and 184
Might Be: Frank Darby, Arizona State
Could Be: Cade Johnson, South Dakota State
Should Be: Cornell Powell, Clemson
Round 6, Pick 210
Might Be: Jonathan Abrams Jr., Arkansas State
Could Be: Simi Fehoko, Stanford
Should Be: Josh Palmer, Tennessee
Rico Bussey Jr., Hawaii
• Very solid, deep class.
• Value as far as the sixth round.
• A little bit of everything for everyone — size, speed, route runners … you can find what you are looking for in this year’s draft.
