NCAA Football: Texas A&M at South Carolina Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

The last minute mocks are out and suddenly the shiny wide receiver skill position isn’t so pretty for the Ravens at pick 22 in the first round. After all the hullabaloo over D.K. Metcalf, Marquise Brown and A.J. Brown, the experts shift their attention to the interior offensive line. Well, at least most of them do.

22. Baltimore Ravens

Erik McCoy, C/G, Texas A&M

I expect the Ravens to try to trade down, but their biggest hole is at the interior offensive line. I have picked McCoy to the Ravens in previous mocks, and I’ll stick with it. — Kiper

Editor and Baltimore Beatdown Podcast host Vasilis Lericos picked McCoy as his first-round selection earlier this week. Great minds think alike.

22. Baltimore Ravens

Erik McCoy, C/G, Texas A&M

The Ravens will look to trade out of this pick, but they also could use an upgrade at left guard or center in helping protect mobile second-year quarterback Lamar Jackson. McCoy has excellent awareness and athleticism. — McShay

Well, if Kiper and McShay both agree, it sounds fairly plausible.

It isn’t all offense in the final mock draft season as PFF’s Steve Palazzolo sees the Ravens continue their defensively-minded ways.

22. Baltimore Ravens: EDGE Chase Winovich, Michigan

Talent is needed in the Baltimore front-7 and Winovich is a productive, under-the-radar talent who put up two straight years of 90-plus PFF grades. He can win with burst, bend or his hands off the edge, making him one of the best all-around defensive players in the draft. — Palazzolo

85. Baltimore Ravens: WR Parris Campbell, Ohio State

102. Baltimore Ravens: LB Mack Wilson, Alabama

I’m a huge Parris Campbell fan. I love the speed and route running. I think this is a great mock and getting a blue-chip edge rusher could really round out the defense.
