With the 2022 NFL Draft fast approaching here are some things to lookout for, players the Ravens might draft and positions the Ravens need to draft players for.
Recent free-agent signings
The Ravens have made some free-agent signings such as Safety Marcus Williams, Offensive Tackle Morgan Moses and Defensive lineman Michael Pierce. These additions to the team have been amazing upgrades to positions we didn’t have the type of players at those positions we have now.
The Raven’s Top NFL Draft Needs
The biggest need I believe the Ravens have in the 2022 NFL Draft is cornerback. The Ravens had players such as Chris Westry and Anthony Averett leave the team. As if the Ravens didn’t already need depth at the cornerback position, these two players leaving the team didn’t help the Ravens whatsoever. Cornerback’s such as Ahmad Gardner, Derek Stingley Jr., Trent McDuffie and Andrew Booth Jr. are the top cornerbacks in this year’s draft class, and they could all be guys that the Ravens select with their first overall pick.
The next biggest need for the Ravens is the inside linebacker position.
The Ravens had some struggles at the inside linebacker position last season. I believe part of that is because of coaching but the Ravens could draft players such as Devin Lloyd and Nakobe Dean in the first round who could be good players to pick in the first round.
The next and last biggest need for the Ravens is offensive tackle. Obviously, we all know current starting Ravens Offensive Tackle Ronnie Stanley has had injury problems the past two seasons which has left some uncertainty on if Ronnie Stanley will be ready to play this season. Reports came out that he would be on pace to start next season but with the severity of his injuries, the Ravens still need to be cautious about if Stanley will be able to start or even play next year. Don’t be shocked if guys like Trevor Penning or Kellen Diesch are selected as the Ravens have a huge hole at offensive tackle.
