#17 – C.J Mosely, LB, Alabama
This might come as a surprise to many, but I think Mosely will fall a bit. If he does, the Ravens should grab him. There are a lot of possibilities, but in the end, Mosely can contribute in multiple ways to the Baltimore defense.
#48 – Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State
In the biggest surprise of the draft, the Ravens get a guy here that they were rumored to grab in the first round. I think Benjamin’s fall will be one of the draft’s biggest surprises, and the Ravens might just capitalize.
#79 – Terrence Brooks, S, Florida State
The Ravens keep their trend of drafting former Seminoles here as they grab Brooks, another prospect who should fall right into the Ravens’ hands. The team needs a solid option next to Matt Elam on defense…Brooks can compete for a starting job right away.
#99 – Seantrel Henderson, T, Florida
Many might be surprised with this pick, but I can’t see a guy of Henderson’s talent falling outside of the top-100. He is very underrated, and while he had a few poor plays on tape, he has skill that I think will translate well to the NFL. He’ll battle with Rick Wagner for the starting right tackle job in Baltimore.
#134 – Walt Aikens, CB, Liberty
The Ravens struck gold with small-school corner Lardarius Webb, they could do it again with this pick. Aikens is rated higher than this by some, but I think he’ll be available at this time in the draft. Baltimore needs depth at the corner spot, like many teams in the AFC North.
#138 – Jake Murphy, TE, Utah
The Ravens did sign Owen Daniels, but he can’t be a sure-thing at this point of his career. Murphy can definitely come in and compete for snaps – the Ravens won’t be afraid from using three-TE sets, either.
#175 – Brandon Thomas, OG, Clemson
The Ravens need depth, and Thomas can provide that. His injury is a bit of a concern, but I still think he has the ability to be a very suitable backup moving forward.
#194 – De’Anthony Thomas – RB, Oregon
This pick doesn’t really need explanation, does it? Thomas is one of the most fascinating running back prospects in the draft, and the Ravens can take a chance on a low-risk, high-reward player.
What do you think, Ravens fans? Would you be pleased with this draft?
