Here are the full letter grades for each pick made by the Baltimore Ravens in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Going into the 2020 NFL Draft, the Baltimore Ravens were armed with nine picks, four picks coming on day two that they turned into six with a trade back with the New England Patriots at the end of round two. As for needs, the Baltimore Ravens were pegged to address primary holes such as inside linebacker, pass rusher, wide receiver, and interior offensive line. Secondary needs that were rumored to be on the table were running back, safety, and back up tight end.

Despite the needs mentioned above, the Baltimore Ravens took a “best player available” that surprised quite a few fans on social media. With that let’s break down every Baltimore Ravens pick of the 2020 NFL Draft.

With their first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Baltimore Ravens made franchise history by drafting its first LSU player in the linebacker Patrick Queen. After losing C.J. Mosley in 2019, the Baltimore Ravens got by with Patrick Onwuasor and Josh Bynes playing in the middle. Now, they get a true number one linebacker to command the defense.

Queen is an extremely athletic linebacker who shows good range and tackles well in space. Queen is also an aggressive player against the run. Considered to be the second-best linebacker in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Baltimore Ravens got a steal at No. 28 overall.
