Another mock draft selecting my personal favorite at sixth overall, I'm already happy! Then landing a cornerback in the second round, topped off with a good third round pick; Mel Kiper you shouldn't have.
The first three rounds in Mel Kiper Jr.'s mock draft for the Baltimore Ravens:
Round 1 (6): Joey Bosa, DE, Ohio State
Round 2 (36): Mackensie Alexander, CB, Clemson
Round 3 (70): Vadal Alexander, G, LSU
In Kiper's analysis, he claims the number one need is offensive line and then pass rush. I would disagree with O-line being the weakness, but Bosa being the selection at six makes me happy. At this point pundits are taking measurements over game film, which is why fans are disagreeing with Bosa. I for one am still sticking by the selection of the Ohio State product after witnessing the man wreck Jim Harbaugh's Wolverines.
Next up, Mackensie Alexander, a definite need for Baltimore, and if the secondary consists Jimmy Smith, Eric Weddle, Lardarius Webb, Shareece Wright, and the Clemson rookie next season I will reach full optimism levels. I don't see Mackensie at 36th overall, instead being drafted much earlier.
I personally have been too enveloped in first and second round players to view Vadal's work, but at some point this squad needs to address Kelechi Osemele's loss, and the third round looks like Kiper's attempt. If he can play guard at a professional level the Ravens can easily re-boot the running game.
