The Baltimore Ravens are in a position where they can go any direction in the 2024 NFL Draft to tweak a roster that was on the brink of a Super Bowl berth.  The team did lose starters at some key positions in free agency, but their depth at those positions should allow them to be okay.

With needs along the offensive line, cornerback, edge rusher and wide receiver, NFL mock drafts are linking the Ravens to some interesting prospects.  Who is the best fit for a team that is expected to be a Super Bowl contender again in 2024?  Let’s compare who some mock drafts have the Ravens selecting with the No. 30 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.

CBS Sports Mock Draft has Ravens selecting Florida State defensive lineman

While most mock drafts have the Ravens selecting an edge rusher at No. 30, CBS Sports’ Chris Trapasso has the team taking an interesting shift with the selection of Florida State defensive lineman Braden Fiske.

In adding depth behind Justin Madubuike, the Ravens will go with a player who has the kind of motor they love.  While the 6-foot-4, 292 Fiske is listed as a defensive tackle entering the draft, he does have some pass rushing ability that could see the Ravens use his athleticism and versatility anywhere along the line.  It is that athleticism that Trapasso feels will entice the Ravens to select him.

Trapasso writes:

“The Ravens are typically a big measurables team in the draft, and Fiske has very short arms for the interior defensive line. But he's a freaky athlete and was supremely productive in his final season at Florida State.”

With names like Missouri’s Darius Robinson and Penn State’s Chop Robinson being linked to the Ravens in various mock drafts, Fiske is an interesting prospect because of that versatility he can bring along the defensive line.

Ravens find value at the end of the first-round in latest Mock

With the addition of running back Derrick Henry and the multi-dimensional talent of Lamar Jackson, beefing up the offensive line is one of the key areas to address for the Ravens.  As intriguing as it will be to select a defensive talent or even a wide receiver at No. 30,’s Chad Reuter has the Ravens selecting Oklahoma’s Tyler Guyton to add to the O-line.

In selecting Guyton, Reuter feels the Ravens will find that value pick as they always seem to do in the draft.

He writes:

“Baltimore's patience in past drafts has resulted in it finding excellent value late in each round. Guyton would be a perfect Ravens pick in that way, and he meets a need after the Morgan Moses trade and the inconsistent availability of veteran Ronnie Stanley.

Standing at 6-foot-8, 322 pounds, Guyton would bring power, length and above average footwork to the Ravens offensive line at either tackle positions.  Again, with the addition of Henry and how the Ravens like to lean on the run name, Guyton’s ability as a lead blocker in space makes him a nice addition and would definitely beef up the line in front of Jackson. ranks Guyton as one of the 5 best offensive tackle options for the Ravens

If the Ravens selected Guyton, it wouldn’t be a bad pick for Mike Luciano at our sister site  In ranking the best 5 options for the Ravens at tackle, Guyton ranks as No. 4 ahead of Arizona’s Jordan Morgan who some mocks have linked to Baltimore.

In his ranking, Luciano sees Guyton as a solid starter who lacks experience as the tackle position, but an athlete at the position the Ravens can work with.

Luciano writes:

“Guyton is inexperienced as a tackle, as he has just one year of high-end starting experience and came into college as a defensive end. If the Ravens are ready to work with him, taking Guyton at 30 might help them add yet another Pro Bowler to their growing stable over the years.”

Whether it is Fiske or Guyton, the Ravens would be adding athleticism and players who could turn into solid starters on either side of the line.  But NFL Mocks predicts the Ravens will go with either Chop Robinson or Darius Robinson at No. 30 or trade back out of the second round for an additional mid-to-late round pick.
