Baltimore Ravens Mock Draft Roundup 8.0


Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 NFL draft, we will update our Baltimore Ravens Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Baltimore Ravens from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Ravens:

EDSFootball - Hanson (4/1)

27. Rashod Bateman, WR, Minnesota

When playing with a lead, the Ravens run-first offense is tough to stop, but their passing offense (171.2) ranked 32nd (of 32) in 2020. Even though the Ravens have signed Sammy Watkins to a one-year deal, Bateman gives them a longer-term complement to the small-but-explosive Marquise Brown. Timing faster than expected in the forty, Bateman is a polished and productive receiver that finished his sophomore (and last full season) with a 60/1,219/11 receiving line.

ESPN - McShay (4/1)

27. Terrace Marshall, WR, LSU

The Ravens were the only team in the NFL with fewer than 2,000 passing yards when targeting wide receivers last season -- they were well short of even the second-worst team at 1,729 yards -- and their current solve is adding Sammy Watkins, who hasn't played 16 games since his 2014 rookie season and hasn't broken 700 yards since 2015. So while a pass-rusher could be in play with Matthew Judon and Yannick Ngakoue departing Baltimore, this one is a no-brainer for me. Marshall has 6-foot-4 size, is explosive downfield and caught 10 TDs last season for LSU.

Baltimore Sun - Doon (3/31)

27. Azeez Ojulari, EDGE, Georgia

The Ravens said goodbye to Matthew Judon and Yannick Ngakoue in free agency, leaving Tyus Bowser and Pernell McPhee to start at outside linebacker. They could use an infusion of young talent at the position, and Ojulari is a quick and bendy prospect who can get into the backfield in a hurry and, crucially for the Ravens, drop into coverage (77 coverage snaps, according to PFF). What Ojulari lacks in size and length (6-2, 240 pounds) he makes up for with heavy hands and a quick first step.

EDSFootball - Donahue (3/29)

27. Teven Jenkins, OT, Oklahoma State

With Orlando Brown requesting a trade, the Ravens now have an opening on the right side of the line that Jenkins can fill. Jenkins is considered one of the better run blockers in the class, which will fit Baltimore's style perfectly.

San Diego Union Tribune (3/29)

27. Gregory Rousseau, EDGE, Miami (FL)

Yannick Ngakoue and Matt Judon are gone. It's been almost two decades since a Hurricane defensive end was taken in the first round (Jerome McDougle in 2003). Rousseau finished with 15.5 sacks in 13 games as a redshirt freshman, but opted out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19 concerns.

L.A. Times - Farmer (3/29)

27. Alijah Vera-Tucker, IOL, USC

The Ravens could have changes coming at center, guard and tackle, so a versatile lineman such as Vera-Tucker would be invaluable.

The Ringer - Kelly (3/26)

27. Rashod Bateman, WR, Minnesota

After missing out on both Kenny Golladay and JuJu Smith-Schuster, the Ravens need to address their glaring lack of depth at receiver. Bateman is a good consolation prize, as he boasts size, excellent route-running skills, and the ability to take the top off a defense. He would complement Marquise Brown and give Lamar Jackson another top target in this offense.

Newsday - Klopsis (3/26)

27. Terrace Marshall, WR, LSU

Marquise Brown has shown big-play ability and Mark Andrews has been a reliable security blanket, but the Ravens still need a big-bodied receiver who can come down with jump balls. Terrace Marshall Jr. uses his 6-4, 200-pound frame, body control and leaping ability to make those contested catches, but he also has good speed -- something the Ravens value in their receivers.
