Ravens 7-Round Mock Draft


Although about 95% of the focus of Ravens draft coverage thus far has been on their first round pick, some of the team’s best players have come from late rounds in the draft.  Pro Bowler Le’Ron McClain was a 4th-round pick, Dawan Landry was a 6th-round pick, and several great Ravens were undrafted free agents (Bart Scott, Adailus Thomas just to name two.)  Here’s my Ravens-specific 7-round projection:

Notes: Asterisk (*) means that the pick is compensatory, and for some odd reason, the “School” box in the table for Jared Veldheer isn’t working. His school is the Division II school Hillsdale, in Hillsdale, Michigan.

Round Pick Selection Position School Height/Weight Analysis
1 25

Jermaine Gresham

TE

Oklahoma 6’5″, 261 lbs. When all is said and done, the Ravens will get a free agent receiver. That makes TE a big need, and Gresham is a solid pick.
2 57

Mardy Gilyard

WR/KR Cincinnati 6’0″, 187 lbs. The team will need a 4th receiver who can step up when Mason does actually retire. His returning skills are a bonus.
3 89

George Selvie

DE/OLB South Florida 6’3″, 252 lbs. Selvie is the quick pass rusher the Ravens like, and would be a good replacement for Trevor Pryce.
3 97*

Akwasi Owusu-Ansah

CB Indiana (PA) 6’0″, 207 lbs. Newsome showed last year he has no problem with lower competition drafting Lardarius Webb. More depth at CB is never a bad thing.
4 124

Mike McLaughlin

ILB Boston College 6’0″, 242 lbs. An intimidating guy, McLaughlin is one of those guys who can make a solid impact in his first season.
4 133*

Myron Rolle

SS/FS Florida St. 6’2″, 215 lbs. It’s unlikely he’ll fall this far, but if he does, the Ravens will snap him up. I’ve heard his interview went phenomenally and hopefully his athletic ability returns after his year at Oxford.
5 158

Manase Tonga

FB BYU 5’11″, 245 lbs. Tonga is a very good fullback from a school known for strong players. He can back up McClain and even step in at FB to let McClain run more.
6 197

Levi Brown

QB Troy 6’3″, 229 lbs. A great senior season gets him drafted, and adds QB depth for the Ravens.
6 207*

Brett Swenson

Kicker Michigan State 5’8″, 178 lbs. John Harbaugh has said he’ll look at kickers in the draft, and Swenson is as good as they get.
7 236

Jared Veldheer

Offensive Guard 6’8″, 312 lbs. Sure, the Ravens probably won’t draft two small-school players, but this guy’s huge, and could be a diamond in the rough being that big if he could make the team out of camp.
7 245*

Clint Gresham

Long Snapper TCU 6’3″, 236 lbs. Why not? Matt Katula lost a game or two for the team, so some competition at least won’t hurt.

    I don’t think we will be getting that many compensatory picks. Check out AdamJT’s blog. He predicts fairly accurately how many picks each team will get and he said in he precalculation blog article that we probably wont be getting very many since we signed almost as many players (foxworth,birk,carr, lj smith) as left us (bart, leonhard, brown, neal).
