Round 1 - Pick 27
 
KENTUCKY • SR • 6'5" / 345 LBS

PROJECTED TEAM

Baltimore

PROSPECT RNK

41st

POSITION RNK

1st
 
Baltimore is committed to its identity as a run first team. Kinnard is a run blocker first and foremost, but he has steadily improved in pass protection. Although listed as a tackle, he is best suited to kick inside at the next level. When a healthy J.K. Dobbins returns, the Ravens could be a force on the ground.
 
 
I am not liking the sound of him.  We are set at guard.  They need tackles who can play tackle.

27. Baltimore Ravens OT Trevor Penning Northern Iowa

"Despite an underwhelming and unorthodox season, Northern Iowa’s roster is home to several legitimate NFL Draft prospects. Trevor Penning may be the best of the group. The Panthers’ blindside protector boasts impressive size and excellent athletic traits."

58. Baltimore Ravens DT Devonte Wyatt Georgia

"Versatile defensive lineman who lines up anywhere five- to zero-technique for the Bulldogs. Wyatt has a quick first step, allowing him to attack gaps. Once at the outside shoulder of blockers, he uses a rip move to keep his frame clean."

89. Baltimore Ravens: OT Blake Freeland, BYU

"The BYU football program took off in 2020 behind an explosive offense that featured several breakout stars. One such player was Blake Freeland. Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of the Cougars’ standout’s game is the fact that he is still new to the tackle position. The former quarterback has grown in every game and experienced a significant jump between 2020 and 2021."

102*. Baltimore Ravens ILB Leo Chenal Wisconsin

"The University of Wisconsin has long been recognized for its hard-nosed playstyle on both sides of the ball. One player who has heavily contributed to the team’s defensive success since 2020 is Leo Chenal. A well-built linebacker, the 6020 and 261-pound defender moves well for his size."

 

 

Wow.   Build up the trenches.  Love the 2nd round pick.  We need a center I think bc I think Bozeman will be on the move.  I am impressed with this.

27. Baltimore Ravens | Minnesota OT Daniel Faalele

This offense has desperately missed the presence of Orlando Brown Jr. and Ronnie Stanley, making offensive tackle a huge need. Faalele is still learning how to use his ridiculously massive frame, but he’s got all the traits that made Brown such a dominant right tackle.

Looks like otis the consensus.   I like that.

27. BALTIMORE RAVENS: S JAQUAN BRISKER, PENN STATE

The Ravens love versatile and athletic secondary defenders — and that’s Brisker. He’s been consistent as can be, too, with overall grades of 82.0, 82.8 and 82.4 in his three seasons at Penn State.

 

 

I can see that.  We definitely need some help at safety.

27) Baltimore Ravens: Trevor Penning, OT, Northern Iowa

Arguably the top senior offensive tackle prospect in the draft heads to the Baltimore Ravens at No. 27. Trevor Penning is a terrific pass protector but an even better run blocker. His fit with the Ravens is perfect — he’ll routinely take two defenders out of the play, one at the first level and another at the second.

 

Liking this kid the more I read.

Baltimore Ravens: Ikem Ekwonu, OT/G, N.C. State 
The Ravens signed a right tackle to replace Orlando Brown, but they need a long-term solution.

Ikem Ekwonu has gotten rave reviews from talent evaluators. Some project him as a late-first-round pick.

Baltimore Ravens: Alec Pierce, WR, Cincinnati 
The Ravens drafted Rashod Bateman in the first round, but they still could use another receiver.

The 6-3 Alec Pierce has a great size and speed combination.

Baltimore Ravens: D'Vonte Price, RB, Florida International 
We've learned that the Ravens don't have the best depth at running back behind J.K. Dobbins.

D'Vonte Price has a nice combination of size and quickness.
 

 

This is a horrific draft.  A questionable tackle.  There is no need at wr.   There is no need at rb.

27. Baltimore Ravens: DeMarvin Leal, EDGE, Texas A&M

Baltimore has a couple of young and talented edge players in Odafe Oweh and Tyus Bowser, but they're scheduled to see Calais Campbell and Justin Houston walk this offseason. Leal would give the team depth at a spot where it likes to rotate bodies to keep rushers fresh. 

 

 

I don't get this pick.

27. Baltimore Ravens

  • Jaquan Brisker, S, Penn State (6-1, 200 pounds)

The Ravens could use an upgrade in safety as they haven't been the same since the Ed Reed days and didn't get what they needed from Earl Thomas. Brisker is adept at making plays all over the field with his great speed and range plus smarts to read quarterbacks well in coverage.

 

I just don't see this as an immediate need.

25. Baltimore (8-4) — Daniel Faalele, T, Minnesota, Sr.

Alejandro Villanueva is signed through 2022, but there’s a potential out in his contract after this season. Faalele achored one of the best offensive lines in the nation this season. He’s a massive man — 6-foot-9, 379 pounds — who is relatively new to the sport. He grew up playing basketball and rugby in Australia. He learned football in 2016 so there’s a lot of clay to mold. Top needs: OL, CB, LB

 

very interesting.  Looking at this description could he be another Ogden?

Depnding on where the Ravens draft, and if Nakobe Dean falls to say 15 or lower, I would love to see them move up and draft him. As giod as Bynes and company have faired this year, they are limited and still struggling with consistency. Dean would fill the mike backer roll tremendously.

I know, the Ravens need ot, cb, edge rusher and maybe dt in the draft, pending what Williams does in the offseason.

But Dean is desperately needed...

"We're excited. We have nine draft picks at this time in the first four rounds. We're not sure exactly how that's going to break down and where those picks will be in the first four rounds, but we know we have nine picks in the first four rounds. For me, as I look at it and as we project and we model and see where those picks will fall … If you think about our list, our master list, if we have 100 players ranked, we feel like all of those nine picks will probably come within our Top 80 players. So, if we do our job correctly, if we stack the board the right way [and] if we're able to play the combinations correctly – what I mean by that is drafting the players with an eye toward maximizing each pick positionally – I think we have a really good chance to build some serious and quality depth to help this team be the best it can be." Eric DeCosta

 

Penning is incredible. I doubt that he will be there at #14. Faalele is a beast. The Ravens can't lose if they get him.

"Our inability this year to create turnovers was probably an issue for us, and I would love to see us make the play this year coming up – intercept more passes, cause more fumbles, be more disruptive. So, if the opportunity presents itself and we see a dynamic corner or a dynamic safety, of course, that would be something that would be attractive to us." Eric DeCosta

14. Baltimore Ravens: Ahmad Gardner, CB, Cincinnati

The Ravens don’t have much room to work with cap-wise heading into 2022. But they can free up $10 million if they move on from Marcus Peters in the offseason. Ahmad Gardner is a long, aggressive CB who moves incredibly well laterally when cognizant of his pad level.

And he wouldn’t be a huge departure from the type of player Peters is, because his eyes get a bit too wide at times, and he’ll make mistakes chasing the turnover. I’ve come to appreciate that type of DB more as the years go on. Turnovers decide football games, so the risk is often worth the reward. But what he runs at the Combine will decide whether he goes this high come April. Gardner could tumble in a future 2022 NFL Mock Draft if he doesn’t run well in Indianapolis.

The Ravens' defense could lose its two starting interior linemen to free agency (or retirement), and the unit also finished in the bottom third of the league with just 34 sacks. Walker could help in both areas, as he can line up inside and outside and tallied six sacks for the national champion Bulldogs this past season.

14. Baltimore (8-9) — Tyler Linderbaum, OL, Iowa, Jr.

You might want to constantly replenish the talent on your offensive line if running the football is your team’s identity. Starting center Bradley Bozeman is an unrestricted free agent and may have priced his way out of Baltimore. Drafting the Rimington Trophy winner and unanimous All-American would be a prudent move. Linderbaum was a multisport athlete in high school who earned multiple letters in wrestling, track, baseball and football. Top needs: OL, CB, LB

That is way to high for a center.

14. BALTIMORE RAVENS: T IKEM EKWONU, NORTH CAROLINA STATE

Baltimore was battered by injuries in 2021. The Ravens secondary was decimated and they lost their entire running back stable at one point or other, but the offensive line could use some contingencies even if Ronnie Stanley returns to play at 100 percent.

Ekwonu is flying up some draft boards with 85.0-plus PFF run-blocking grades in each of his college seasons and above 90 in his last two. In Baltimore's offense, he is a dream fit.

  • Kaiir Elam, CB, Florida (6-2, 196 pounds)

The Ravens ended the season with an injury-riddled mess at cornerback. They need to rejuvenate their coverage to boost their blitzing scheme. Elam's strength and length stand out. He is very efficient in coverage because of his athleticism.

14. Baltimore Ravens: CB Derek Stingley Jr., LSU

"Top tier athletic cornerback with good length. Stingley Jr. burst onto the scene in 2019 as a true freshman and quickly became the best cornerback in all of college football. Instinctive reactionary quickness at the line of scrimmage to slide feet and mirror releases while utilizing a kick step to cut off vertical releases."

If he comes back into the 2019 version this is a steal.

Baltimore Ravens: Charles Cross, OT, Mississippi State 
The Ravens signed a right tackle to replace Orlando Brown, but they need a long-term solution.

Charles Cross has great feet as a former five-star recruit. Charlie Campbell reported that Cross has impressed team evaluators this season.

.

Baltimore Ravens: Justyn Ross, WR, Clemson 
The Ravens drafted Rashod Bateman in the first round, but they still could use another receiver.

Justyn Ross is a 6-4, 210-pound monster who catches everything. Alabama had no answer for him in the national championship. Unfortunately, he missed all of 2020 with an injury.

.

Baltimore Ravens: Kenneth Walker, RB, Michigan State 
We've learned that the Ravens don't have the best depth at running back behind J.K. Dobbins.

Kenneth Walker is a tough back who runs with great balance.

Baltimore Ravens: Coby Bryant, CB, Cincinnati Cincinnati_logo.gif
The Ravens need to bolster their depth at cornerback, given their woes from last year.

Coby Bryant made some clutch shots, I mean interceptions during the 2020 season. He has some speed concerns.

.

.

Baltimore Ravens: MoMo Sanogo, LB, Ole Miss 
The Ravens struggled to defend the middle of the field last year, so that must change.

.

.

Baltimore Ravens: Kingsley Engabare, DE, South Carolina 
The Ravens need to add more talented pass rushers so they don't have to blitz as often.

Kingsley Engabare has solid speed and athleticism.

This could be the worst mock I have ever seen.  It has no basisin the reality of this team.

Derek Stingley Jr.

CB, LSU

The Baltimore Ravens do it again. They simply take a good football player and believe in their process as an organization. At pick No. 14, the Ravens draft cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. Stingley Jr. spent the majority of his college career as the No. 1 corner, but due to injury concerns, he slipped a bit. However, I believe that the Ravens will do their due diligence and find his injury concerns to be minuscule compared to the talent that they are getting at this pick. Plus, it immediately fills a position of need.

Fastest recorded wide receiver class in NFL history. The curmudgeon in me says the stop watches were fixed. Some of those times were sick, just sick. Not all of those guys have great hands, even the ones that do, some will just not be able to acclimate to the NFL game for one reason or another.

Should be interesting to see who shakes out.  The Ravens need more speed, on both sides of the ball, the speed at wide out is rarely seen. They tend to struggle off of the line, or only have straight line speed.

While you can't teach speed, speed alone is not good enough, quickness is the most important. Will the Ravens reach for one of the speed demons in the 2nd?
