With the No. 94 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, the Baltimore Ravens select OL Ben Cleveland.

Cleveland is an absolute monster of a man, sizing up at 6-foot-5, 357 pounds.

This is an excellent pick for Baltimore. For the third time in three picks, Eric DeCosta and Co. have landed a great player at a need position. Cleveland was a dominant blocker for the Georgia Bulldogs and will compliment the Ravens scheme perfectly.

NFL.COM DRAFT PROFILE

“Cleveland isn’t just a burly interior lineman. He has a legitimate pro, wide-body frame with desired lean mass and proportional build. He’s an average athlete for his size, but there are athletic limitations that will put him into the “lumbering” category if he has to redirect his weight or sustain his movements. The fundamentals into his first strike are sound, but he loses the sustain phase faster than expected for a man with his size and strength. He can be a little slow to process the moving pieces in pass protection, which could become a big issue due to below-average reactive lateral quickness. He should become an average starter, but has a chance to upgrade to quality starter if a team can coach him up to become a more consistent people-mover.” — Lance Zierlein

His NFL comparison according to Lance Zierlein is D.J. Fluker, which fits rather well as the Ravens just lost Fluker in free agency.
