2016 NFL Draft: Baltimore Ravens have a higher chance to get first overall pick

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Our buddies at NumberFire have hit us up with the latest projections for the Baltimore Ravens and the 2016 NFL Draft. With a loss to the Miami Dolphins in week 13, the Ravens fall to 4-8 on the season and hold the fourth overall pick currently if things were to end today.

With that loss, the Ravens have also raised their odds of getting the number one pick. Going up 0.58 percent to 1.82% overall, the Ravens are still slim shots at seeing their names on the board first, but with each loss, the odds look to improve.

NumberFire even projected out the top-10 picks in the draft. The Ravens stick with their fourth overall pick according to the site, while the Cleveland Browns take the top spot just like they hold now.

  1. Cleveland Browns
  2. San Diego Chargers
  3. Tennessee Titans
  4. Baltimore Ravens
  5. Dallas Cowboys
  6. Jacksonville Jaguars
  7. San Francisco 49ers
  8. St. Louis Rams
  9. New Orleans Saints
  10. Detroit Lions

If things work out this way, it would tie the highest overall pick the Ravens have ever held with the 1996 and 1997 seasons. The Ravens would select Jonathan Ogden with the fourth pick in 1996 while grabbing linebacker Peter Boulware with the same pick in the 1997 season. With both of those players going to multiple Pro Bowls, the Ravens have pretty great odds of selecting another winner in the top-5 of the NFL Draft if given the chance again.
