With the NFL Season now complete many analysts have already started looking at the NFL Draft. Who doesn’t enjoy a good mock draft? Here is a look at who NFL Draft Analysts are looking at for the first round target for the Ravens.
Dane Brugler – Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
Rob Rang – Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
Matt Miller – Marqise Lee, WR, USC
Daniel Jeremiah – Marqise Lee, WR, USC
Josh Sanchez – Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
The consensus among these four mock drafts is that the Ravens will be looking for a wide receiver with their first pick. There is the posibility that Jacoby Jones and Brandon Stokley could both be gone next season. Jones is a free agent and Stokley had mentioned that retirement is a possibility. This offense is in need of weapons for Joe Flacco.
Another possibility would be for the Ravens to look the way of a tight end. Ed Dickson, Dennis Pitta and Dallas Clark are all free agents. If Eric Ebron is available at 16/17 he should get some looks. He is the best all around tight end in the draft. Another possibility would be a pass catching tight end in the second round should Jace Amaro still be available.
There is still a long way to go but with the season behind us, now is the time to look at the future for this franchise.
