I just watched his combine on yt.  He is so fast and so powerful.  The concern is pad level.   They were telling him to get lower in shuttles and other drills.   If he can keep his pads down he could definitely be more than a 2 down tackle.  He can be a bigger more powerful Sapp.

Final look at who the experts think we could draft.


FLORIDA STATE • SR • 6'5" / 254 LBS
After transferring from Georgia, Johnson has a fantastic season at Florida State. And he told us at the combine that he felt like he had something to prove going from the SEC to the ACC. He did that and then some, then he dominated the Senior Bowl, and followed that up with an electric workout in Indy. The Ravens drafted Odafe Oweh a year ago and he'll get a running mate with Johnson here.
45. Baltimore: Luke Goedeke,  OT, Central Michigan





6-foot-6, 341 pounds | Age: 22 (1/12/2000)
Media Consensus Rank: 16

Davis is an impact starter right away in the NFL. He won’t be coveted for his pass-rushing skill set, but his ability to two-gap in the run game is second to none in this class. He’s the exact type of player who allows for NFL defenses to run light boxes without jeopardizing support in run defense, which combats at least some of the concerns surrounding his low snap volume at Georgia and positional value.

14. Baltimore Ravens: Trevor Penning, offensive tackle, Northern Iowa 

Kudos to Good Morning Football’s Peter Schrager for IDing Penning to the Ravens. The fourth tackle, clearly, on boards around the league would be a very good fit in Baltimore, where there’s a hole at right tackle (31-year-old Morgan Moses due to fill it as of today) and where left tackle Ronnie Stanley has struggled to stay healthy. Penning started 31 games at left tackle for Northern Iowa, and his size (6-7, 325) would play well on either side. I think the Ravens feel good enough about Stanley’s future to not be forced into taking a tackle here. Picking a corner (Trent McDuffie would be very good value) will not surprise me. 




Baltimore Ravens: Charles Cross, OT, Mississippi State

The Ravens have declined since Lamar Jackson's second season because of offensive line issues. Marshal Yanda retired, while Ronnie Stanley hasn't been able to stay healthy. There also have been issues at center, which could be fixed with this pick. However, if Charles Cross, who could go as early as No. 5, is still available, the Ravens may trip over themselves trying to hand their card into Roger Goodell.


Baltimore Ravens: Kaiir Elam, CB, Florida

The Ravens had severe coverage issues last year that they must address early in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Kaiir Elam has a good mix of length and quickness.

Baltimore Ravens: Jalen Pitre, S, Baylor

It would be a surprise if the Ravens didn't use one of their first three selections on secondary help.

Jalen Pitre was very smooth in the on-field drills at the combine. He can play safety and slot cornerback.


Baltimore Ravens: John Ridgeway, DT, Arkansas

The Ravens are interested in upgrading their defensive line, and they may do so as early as No. 14 overall.

John Ridgeway has a nice combination of size and speed.


Baltimore Ravens: Kyren Williams, RB, Notre Dame

The Ravens sorely lacked depth behind J.K. Dobbins last year. Dobbins may not be 100 percent entering 2022.


Baltimore Ravens: Terrel Bernard, OLB, Baylor

The Ravens had an issue defending the middle of the field last season, so some linebacker help is needed.

Terrel Bernard has three-down starting potential for the NFL.


Baltimore Ravens: Kalon Barnes, WR, Baylor

Cornerback was a big problem area for the Ravens last year, so it'll have to be addressed at some point.


Baltimore Ravens: Myjai Sanders, DE, Cincinnati

The Ravens will need a better edge rush to keep them from blitzing so often.

Myjai Sanders saw a decline in sacks last year, but was better than his numbers indicated.


Baltimore Ravens: Nick Zakelj, OT, Fordham

The Ravens are expected to select at least two offensive linemen to aid Lamar Jackson.


Baltimore Ravens: Damone Clark, OLB, LSU

Damone Clark would be a second-round pick under normal circumstances. Unfortunately, spinal surgery will push him into late-round or UDFA territory.

Barnes is a WR turned CB.  No Center?

14. Baltimore Ravens

  • Will pick: Charles Cross, OT, Mississippi State
  • Should pick: Charles Cross, OT, Mississippi State
  • Dark horse: Trevor Penning, OT, Northern Iowa

The Ravens would probably be ecstatic if Cross was available with the 14th overall selection. He could go as high as the No. 5, so getting him at this juncture would be a steal. Cross, a redshirt sophomore, was a two-year starter at Mississippi State and would be the team's long-term starter at right tackle ahead of veteran Morgan Moses.

Baltimore could opt to pass on Cross if they like Penning better. Penning is a massive 6-7, 325-pound tackle from Northern Iowa who has as much upside as any tackle in this class. He also is raw and needs time to develop, so the Ravens should take Cross here given his higher-level experience.




14. Baltimore Ravens (8-9)

  • Tyler Linderbaum, C, Iowa (6-2, 296 pounds)

The Ravens are looking for an interior stud and should focus on center with Kevin Zeitler serving well as right guard and Bradley Bozeman gone in free agency. Linderbaum, who has been working with former Iowa star turned Ravens legend Marshal Yanda, would be ideal inside.

45. Baltimore Ravens

  • Nicholas Petit-Frere, OT, Ohio State (6-5, 316 pounds)

The Ravens need some depth and versatility behind Ronnie Staley and newcomer Morgan Moses given the latter's injury history. Petit-Frere has experience starting well on either side.

76. Baltimore Ravens

  • JoJo Domann, LB, Nebraska (6-1, 228 pounds)

The Ravens love Patrick Queen but Malik Harrison has become a major liability inside. Domann can provide a huge boost for them with his special coverage skills.

100. Baltimore Ravens (compensatory)

  • Coby Bryant, CB, Cincinnati (6-1, 193 pounds)

The Ravens can wait to address their need at corner with good depth in the draft. Bryant, named after the NBA legend, complemented Gardner well with smart, strong coverage.

110. Baltimore Ravens (from Giants): Haskell Garrett, DT, Ohio State (6-2, 300 pounds)

119. Baltimore Ravens: Verone McKinley III, S, Oregon (5-11, 194 pounds)

128. Baltimore Ravens (from Cardinals): Spencer Burford, G, Texas-San Antonio (6-4, 304 pounds)

139. Baltimore Ravens (compensatory): DeAngelo Malone, EDGE, Western Kentucky (6-3, 243 pounds)

141. Baltimore Ravens (compensatory): Montaric Brown, CB, Arkansas (6-0, 196 pounds)

196. Baltimore Ravens (from Dolphins): Jalen Nailor, WR, Michigan State (6-0, 190 pounds)

A 1st round center?  I do like the OSU tackle.

Trevor Penning

Northern Iowa · OT · Senior (RS)

Love this fit, both for the landing spot and value. Lamar Jackson will relish playing behind Penning, who has a nasty streak the Ravens may have lost when they traded Orlando Brown Jr. a year ago.

I dont know.  I read that he could be great but he is a bit of a project.  I dont see that they have time for that.

Davis is pretty much exactly what I picture when I think about a Ravens’ defensive lineman: He’s big, long, extraordinarily athletic, and disruptive. He brings day-one impact potential as a run-plugging two-gap player but also has intriguing upside as a pass rusher.

We need a LT early. Strange is interesting.  Mostly a LG but has played some LT and center.





14. Baltimore Ravens: George Karlaftis, EDGE, Purdue

  Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Eyeing upgrades on the defensive side, the Baltimore Ravens find the combo of BPA and addressing needs. George Karlaftis is made for a 3-4 defense, bringing the brute strength and motor teams look for in defensive ends. He’s also capable of lining up in multiple spots, another quality Baltimore likes. It’s no surprise there is mutual interest between player and team.

14. Baltimore Ravens: LB Devin Lloyd, Utah

He is an active communicator, passing off routes in zone. Great eyes and locating skills in coverage allow him to take consistently favorable angles and be in the right place. Lloyd locates and carries tight ends up the seam and is able to get very good depth in his drops with his length making it tough for quarterbacks to layer the ball over him. -

45. Baltimore Ravens: 3-4 OLB Boye Mafe, Minnesota





14. Baltimore Ravens: Jordan Davis, IDL, Georgia

Jordan Davis ran an incredible 4.78 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine, the sixth-fastest ever for a defensive tackle. He’s a dominant run stopper that could take over for Brandon Williams in the middle of that defense.

After his great workout, it wouldn’t be a shock if he went even higher than this. Davis would be a fantastic fit in Baltimore.

45. Baltimore Ravens: Perrion Winfrey, IDL, Oklahoma

The Ravens took a defensive tackle in Round 1, but they take another here in Round 2. Winfrey is another athletic freak with pass-rushing upside. His rare length and size would allow him to play all over Baltimore’s defensive line.

76. Baltimore Ravens: Daniel Faalele, OT, Minnesota

Daniel Faalele is a monster right tackle who weighed in at the NFL Combine at 384 pounds. He’s a right tackle only in the NFL, but he needs a specific scheme to best utilize his strengths.

Baltimore had a similar player in Orlando Brown a few years ago and that worked out well, especially for being a third-round pick. Faalele isn’t quite as talented, but he could be a dominant run blocker in the NFL in one of the league’s most run-heavy schemes.

100. Baltimore Ravens: Luke Fortner, C, Kentucky

The Ravens lost Bradley Bozeman in free agency and could use some more interior offensive line depth.

110. Baltimore Ravens (via Giants): Josh Jobe, CB, Alabama

119. Baltimore Ravens: Jeremy Ruckert, TE, Ohio State

128. Baltimore Ravens (via Cardinals): Brian Robinson, RB, Alabama

139. Baltimore Ravens: Bo Melton, WR, Rutgers

196. Baltimore Ravens (via Miami): Matt Araiza, P, San Diego State


I do not like the Minny OT.  Zues Jr was undervalued and a steal in the 3rd.  This dude could just be an eating machine.  I love the Fortner selection.  Where is the LT? Why a punter?  Didnt Koch sign a new deal not that long ago?  They dont need a RB in the 4th.

14 Baltimore
Jordan Davis
Should they wish, at pick #14, the Ravens are in position to select one of the draft's top receivers. Miles Boykin has been released; a move more about giving up on a disappointingly ineffective player than it was about saving cap money. Let's not forget, however, that this is a team looking to re-establish a run-first style of offense. In that case, the team may feel they have all they need with Marquise Brown, Rashod Bateman, and All-Pro TE, Mark Andrews. Adding pass-catching weaponry feels like something Baltimore could do successfully in the later rounds.

The defense lacks leadership and a true difference maker. I like that Calais Campbell is back, but he'll be 36 this season, and not the player he once was. Other veterans left in free agency, so this is a unit in somewhat of a transitional period. Assuming the injury bug doesn't return, the secondary should be much improved in 2022. The biggest impact move would be to insert a playmaker into the D-line. I wouldn't have gone this route a few weeks back, but selecting 
Jordan Davis makes a ton of sense
45 Baltimore
Drake Jackson
If the Ravens come out of the 2022 Draft with two potential difference makers on defense, then that will constitute a successful few days work. Drake Jackson is a RD1 talent who has slipped down boards, but only because other Edge Rushers have leapfrogged him with strong Combine and Pro-Day workouts. Jackson has bulked up to 273lb without losing the athletic traits that will appeal to Baltimore's Front Office.
76 Baltimore
Christian Harris
Christian Harris will be a good-to-great player in the NFL if he goes to a team that knows what his strengths are. Harris won't succeed if he's asked to do the dirty work and constantly play the run. In coverage, or on blitzes, he'll excel; he's a great athlete. We can trust Baltimore to get the best out of the former Alabama LB.
100 Baltimore (Comp)
Justyn Ross
I expect a team like Baltimore to take a flier on Justyn Ross in the 3rd/4th round. After his sophomore season (2019) Ross looked every bit a future first rounder. Unfortunately, spinal surgery in 2020 meant he missed that entire season. 2021 saw Ross return to the field but, unsurprisingly, he didn't display the same spark, especially without Trevor Lawrence throwing him the ball.

Round 1 - Pick 14
NC STATE • SOPH • 6'4" / 310 LBS
Hello, exquisite fit. Ekwonu's run-blocking prowess will be a welcomed addition in Baltimore.
No. 60 overall: Ravens (from Buccaneers via mock trade) - DeMarvin Leal, DL, Texas A&M
No. 76 overall: Ravens - Brandon Smith, LB, Penn State
No. 91 overall: Ravens (from Buccaneers via mock trade) - Verone McKinley III, S, Oregon
No. 100 overall: Ravens - Tyler Badie, RB, Missouri
No. 119 overall: Ravens - Marquis Hayes, OL, Oklahoma
No. 128 overall: Ravens (via ARI) - Pierre Strong, RB, South Dakota State
No. 152 overall: Ravens (from Broncos via mock trade) - Chase Campbell, LB, Ole Miss
No. 196 overall: Ravens - Zakoby McClain, LB, Auburn
No. 206 overall: Ravens (from Broncos via mock trade) - Jaylen Watson, CB, Washington State

So this one has trades being made.  I am so in love with Ikey in the first round.  I keep looking at mocks and seeing how far he drops.  Thios is the only one that has him making it out of the top 10 so far.  No center?  Why a RB so early?
