EDGE Pass Rusher
A top priority entering the draft is finding a young pass rusher off the edge. Suggs isn't getting any younger, and his perform showed signs of age last season.
If Takk McKinley drops this far, the Ravens wont hesitate to snatch him off the board. McKinley is viewed by some as a top 10 draft pick, while others keep him in the top 20.
McKinley would be the perfect answer to help their depleting pass rush. He's also big against the run, and has good lateral agility to close opposing running lanes. He's also athletic enough to be used in coverage.
The other possibilities with this pick are Haason Reddick, and Jarrad Davis. Either of these two players would give the Raven's pass rush an upgrade, but unless McKinley is available, it's hard to imagine the Ravens not selecting a receiver with this pick.
Baltimore needs to upgrade their ground game following a couple of rough seasons. Dalvin Cook could be available, if he is the Ravens will give him a long look.
Cook has all the skills, and talent to be a top 10 draft pick, but he will fall do to lack of needs outside of the top ten. Baltimore's backfield would get a huge upgrade by adding a potential 1000 yard back.
Arguably their top need entering the draft, the Ravens must upgrade their receiving core. Baltimore could luck out with combine stud John Ross possibly being availale. His combine didn't make him a top 10 prospect, but it did cement him being a top 20 pick.
Clocking in with a 4.2 forty at the combine, Ross has top notch speed to burn past slower corners at the next level. He has good hands, and runs routes well, and has good moves to avoid being jammed at the snap.
At 5'11 he is a bit undersized for a receiver, which could be an issue against taller corners at the next level. Ross might develop into a solid 1WR at the next level, but entering the draft he's the best 2WR in the first round.
If you were the GM of the Baltimore Ravens, who would you pick?
