Hello Ravens. I have constructed my first mock draft and it would be made as if Jared Gaither, Chris Carr, Josh Wilson, Sergio Kindle, and Dawan Landry will all be playing for the Ravens this season. In my mock draft I have the Ravens trading out of the first round because the patriots provide them with an offer they can’t refuse, which is a trade for the Ravens # 26 first rounds pick for their # 33 & #60 in the second round.
Welcome to Jaz Baltimore Ravens Mock Draft
Pick# 33- WR Leonard Hankerson Ht: 6-3,Wt: 205, School: Miami
Leonard Hankerson will be the Ravens first pick in the second round and I know some probably would expect a defensive player but this year the draft is full of defensive talent. Leonard Hankerson provides just about everything the Ravens want in a receiver with his good speed, height, good hands, and ability to be a vertical threat. The Ravens just cannot pass up on him and finally they get their wide receiver they been dreaming of.
Pick#58-De/Olb Brooks Reed Ht: 6-3, Wt 255, School: Arizonia
Pick#58: Brooks Reed is a player that has a lot of upside, non stop motor, and can be very aggressive. Brooks Reed stock has been rising lately and has been compared to Clay Matthew (I think more because of his hair) because of how the way he plays. Brooks Reed has very good pass rush skills and The Ravens may have Sergio Kindle but you can never have too many good pass rushers.
Pick#60- C/G Tim Barnes Ht: 6-4, Wt: 310, School: Missouri
The Ravens still have center Matt Birk but it’s no telling if he may retire after this year. Tim Barnes is considered to be a very good center that is very smart, athletic, solid pass protector, solid foot work/agility, and etc. Tim Barnes could can also play guard and the Ravens love O-linemen that can be versatile; with this pick he can provide much depth for the Ravens in the interior O-linemen position.
Pick#90-CB Ras I Dowling- Ht: 6-2, Wt: 205, School: Virginia
The Ravens select Ras I Dowling and finally draft a cornerback with a height of 6’2”. Ras- I- Dowling has all the tools to become a very good cornerback in this league and becoming the next shut down cornerback in due time. Ras-I-Dowling will be considered a steal for the Ravens because he has first round quality but the injuries he recently have been going has dropped his stock this far.
Pick# 122- Olb/Ilb Mark Herzlich 6-4 238, School: Boston College
Mark Herzlich is said to be emotional leader on field and what could be better then to have him learn from the best linebacker of all time/ emotional leader Ray Lewis. Mark Herzlich doesn’t have speed like a Bart Scott/Tavares Gooden but he makes that up with good instinct. Ray Lewis/Ed Reed play with good instinct and we all know good instincts leads to a player become a playmaker
Pick#184- FB Henry Hynoski Ht: 6-2 Wt: 262 , School: Pittsburgh
Head Coach John Harbuagh clearly stated he wants to have a big physical fullback that could run the ball a little bit, run routes, and pass protect. Henry Hypnosis could provide just about everything John Harbaugh is looking for and probably become the next Lorenzo Neal.
Pick#186:- WR Ricardo Lockette Ht199 6-3 School: Fort Valley State
Ricardo Lockette could provide the Ravens with blazing speed and its was reported that he was the second fastest player to run the 40 yard dash at the NFL Combine. Ricardo Lockette could provide depth for the Ravens at the kick returner/punt returner position and provide the Ravens with a speedy vertical threat.
Pick# 217-T David Mims Ht: 6-8, Wt: 348, School: Virginia
David Mims has all the totals to be a successful right tackle/left tackle and some may consider him a project player but in my opinion every player coming from the draft needs some kind of help by coaches. David Mims plays aggressive, has good strength, good run blocker, long arms, and has good size; The Ravens lack an aggressive o-line last year and I’m sure they are still looking for that next Jonathan Ogden but with this selection they may have a steal on their hands.
