Ravens Mock Draft 16.0

I'm trying to make my 2 drafts (the 1st round and the Ravens 7 round) correspond. So I'll throw in a trade where we move down to 30 and grab San Fran's second and fourth round picks as part of the deal. 2 4ths and 2 5ths as comps.

Standard Draft

Round 1 #16 or 17: Marqise Lee, WR, USC. Now here me out. I do not want to make a pick at 16/17 unless either Greg Robinson, Jake Matthews, or Sammy Watkins is on the board. Now considering the fact that none of them will probably be available at 17, my option is to trade down. I'm doing one mock where we don't, so we take the best WR available. If he regains his 2012 USC form, he will be worth this pick.

Round 2: Billy Turner, OT, NDSU. I am hoping Antonio Richardson falls here, but it probably won't happen. If he does, that is the pick. Assuming it's not, we take Billy Turner. He has the size and ability to start right away at LT for us.

Round 3: C.J. Fiedorowicz, TE, Iowa. This guy would be a great #2 TE for us. He is a good blocker as well and a big target for Joe Flacco.

Round 4 Comp #1: Tyler Larsen, C, Utah State. Here we get our C.

Round 4 Comp #2: Kenny Ladler, S, Vanderbilt. Here we get our FS to go next to Matt Elam.

Round 5 Comp #1: Deion Belue, CB, Alabama. I know Webb could be our slot CB, but he also can play outside. Here we take a good slot CB.

Round 5 Comp #2: Brent Urban, DE, Virginia. This guy looks like good depth at first and then could maybe start later on.

Round 6: Max Bullough, LB, Michigan State. This just gives us ILB depth.

Draft with Trade

Round 1 #30: Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt. We get our good all-around WR to complement Torrey Smith.

Round 2 #16/17: Travis Swanson, C, Arkansas. We get the best C in the draft to greatly help our O-Line.

Round 2 #30: Billy Turner, OT, NDSU. We get a good player who can start right away at RT.

Round 3: C.J. Fiedorowicz, TE, Iowa. We get our great #2 TE and he would work great with us.

Round 4 #30: Deion Belue, CB, Alabama. We get our good slot CB here.

Round 4 Comp #1: Kenny Ladler, S, Vanberbilt. We get our FS right here.

Round 4 Comp #2: Andre Williams, HB, Boston College. We get another good RB here.

Round 5 Comp #1: De'Anthony Thomas, HB/WR/KR/PR, Oregon. We get our Jacoby Jones replacement here. He could easily go higher if his 40 time is even better then what everyone expects it to be.

Round 5 Comp #2: Brent Urban, DE, Virginia. Here we get our D-Line Depth.

Round 6: Max Bullough, LB, Michigan. Here we get our ILB depth.

I'll do a positional rundown.

Standard Draft: WR, OT, TE, C, S, CB, DE, LB

Draft with trade: WR, C, OT, TE, CB, HB, OW, DE, LB

I know I probably overdid it on Joe Flacco weapons/targets. I know Andre Williams and De'Anthony Thomas might not be there at their picks where I put them. I almost thought about switching Swanson and Turner with Lamarcus Joyner and Antonio Richardson and then switching Ladler with Larsen to make our draft nearly perfect, but I know getting Joyner AND Richardson in the 2nd is impossible.
