Here are three players the Baltimore Ravens may look to trade up for in the 2020 NFL Draft.
The 2020 NFL Draft is getting closer each day and NFL teams are beginning to widdle down their big boards for the big event in April. Depending on how free agency and trade market plays out, the Baltimore Ravens final team big board will most likely consist of the following positions; edge, center, wide receiver and inside linebacker. While the board will obviously be far more nuanced than those four positions, they are, as of now the Baltimore Ravens’ four biggest needs.
Sometimes in the NFL Draft, the player you want at a major position of need may not be there for you, potentially prompting a trade up to occur. With that here are three prospects that the Baltimore Ravens could conceivably trade up for at some point within the first two rounds of the 2020 NFL Draft.
With rumors circling of veteran pass rusher Matthew Judon potentially receiving the tag and trade treatment this offseason, the Baltimore Ravens find themselves with a big need at outside linebacker. Even with Judon back in Baltimore, for a team that is a “win now” type of mindset, adding a blue-chip prospect across from Judon may be on the table.
As such, the player I could see the Baltimore Ravens making a move for is LSU pass rusher K’Lavon Chaisson. Chaisson is an uber-athletic outside linebacker with bend and burst for days and could be a great fit in Don Martindale’s defense.
In order to position themselves for such a player, which would be anywhere from picks 10-20, Baltimore would need to give up quite a bit for that kind of move. The compensation could come in the form of their 2020 first-round pick plus multiple Day Two picks.
