With the Ravens bringing back Eugene Monroe, grabbing an offensive tackle isn't as big of a need in the first two rounds.

Even if Michael Oher leaves, the Ravens have the option of moving Kelechi Osemele to right tackle or giving Rick Wagner a shot. One lineman to watch is Zack Martin, due to his versatility to play both tackle and guard.

But with the line somewhat secure (at least for now), perhaps the Ravens could add depth to the wide receiver position early in the draft. In addition, if Jacoby Jones heads elsewhere, there will be a need to not only have another receiving option, but to have someone that can return kicks and punts.

That's where LSU's Odell Beckham, Jr. comes into play. Beckham is projected to go in the mid-to-late first round and is someone that can be used in multiple roles. He's also a return specialist that can spring big plays in that facet of the game.

Here's a scouting report from SB Nation's Matt Ufford:
