After finally winning a playoff game with Lamar Jackson at the helm, the Baltimore Ravens are looking at a make-or-break offseason.
Among the list of things the team must deal with this offseason is re-signing Jackson to an extension, improving their front four, and getting wideouts for the 2020 MVP quarterback.
This draft could be extremely vital, especially considering the team has to re-sign multiple starters and could be strapped for cash. If the team wants to avoid another Joe Flacco post-Super Bowl situation, they will need to hit on most picks in this draft.

The Ravens’ biggest loss last offseason was the retirement of future Hall of Famer guard Marshal Yanda. The team relied on Ben Powers and Bradley Bozeman at guard last season and the two graded towards the bottom of the league.
Regardless, the Baltimore Ravens did once again have one of the league’s most potent run games in the NFL with Jackson leading the way.
Adding Wyatt Davis may not give them Yanda off the bat, but as the draft’s top guard, Davis gives the team a major upgrade in year one. The team is focusing on extending both Jackson and tackle Orlando Brown Jr. and adding Davis could give them some much-needed flexibility along the offensive line.
