My Ravens Mock Draft

1st Round: Odell Beckham Jr WR.: Good hands, has dangerous speed, and can serve as a slot guy after Steve Smith retires and a punt returner in case Jacoby gets injured (or declines) and Asa is either too good of a corner to risk in returns or gets suspended again.

2nd Round: Antonio Richardson RT: I don't trust Zack Martin as an RT, especially when most have him listed as a G/T. Antonio Richardson is a pure tackle and would allow K.O. to stay at LG, where I believe he would become a Pro Bowler.

3rd Round: Donte Moncrief WR: I understand the shock that I have the Ravens taking 2 WRs, but Torrey is set to be a free agent next year and while the Ravens are trying to get an extension, Torrey is represented by Drew Rosenhaus who isn't known for being rational. Also Steve Smith isn't getting any younger. While not the fastest Moncrief can gain separation from corners, has excellent hands, is tough as a downfield blocker, and can make highlight reel grabs like Boldin did. In fact he's the guy who comes to mind whenever I thought about him especially considering that at 6'2" they're of the same build.

3rd Round Comp: Ed Reynolds FS: At 6'2" and 205 he has the strength to take on tight ends over the slot and can be a force in run defense. Is also very instinctive and possesses the athleticism the Ravens are looking for.

4th Round Comp #1: Arthur Lynch TE: The first place where Lynch can make a contribution to the offense is as a blocking Tight End. The 2nd place is as a receiver where he can make the 3rd-down catch.

4th Round Comp #2: Tyler Gaffney RB: At 220 pounds he can be the 4th and 1 back the Ravens have been searching for and he doesn't go down easily. He doesn't have the burst or elusiveness that Ray Rice has, but he'll be the short yardage back to complement Rice and Pierce.

5th Round Comp: Tyler Starr OLB: Could be mentored by Suggs and Doom to have a spot at OLB while providing depth and allowing Pernell McPhee to return to the DL.

6th Round: CB Aaron Colvin CB: Why do I have the Ravens waiting until the 6th round to take a CB? Because it's a classic Ozzie pick. Colvin was seen as a 2nd-3rd round pick before his ACL tear. Now that he's torn his ACL he's projected to be anywhere from a 6th to a UDFA. The Ravens could take this guy and have a solid #3 corner and even if they can't start him immediately they could sign a vet or let one of the guys they already have play until he's ready.
