Here are five potential late-round targets for the Baltimore Ravens in the 2020 NFL Draft.

While much of the attention is put upon the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, teams are built on day three.

The Baltimore Ravens are one of the few teams in the AFC, or the NFL for that matter, who do not possess a lot of glaring needs. The Baltimore Ravens have a defensive core that now includes the newly acquired Calais Campbell and Michael Brockers after the first wave of free agency moves. On offense, they have an MVP quarterback in Lamar Jackson, a pair of bookend tackles and other reliable pieces at the skills positions.

Going into the 2020 NFL Draft, the Baltimore Ravens have two big needs at inside linebacker and at outside pass rusher. And despite double-dipping at the receiver position in the 2019 NFL Draft, Eric DeCosta told Baltimore Ravens digital host Garrett Downing after the Combine that they’ll “probably draft a receiver”.

In the same interview, DeCosta mentioned the interior offensive line as another need they could address during the draft. With Marshal Yanda‘s retirement and the Matt Skura coming off of a brutal knee injury, this could be a possibility sooner rather than later in the 2020 NFL Draft.

As far as draft capital goes, the Baltimore Ravens have nine picks total, with five in the first three rounds of the 2020 NFL Draft. Their additional four picks include two fourth-round picks, a fifth and a seventh-round pick.

The Baltimore Ravens have had some success hitting on the third day of the draft, although it’s worth noting they were, like others in this list, developmental players. With that, here are five potential sleepers for the Baltimore Ravens.
