This offseason, many believe that the Baltimore Ravens biggest need is at wide receiver. But this is a team that has always believed in defense first, which could indicate that in the 2015 NFL draft the Ravens will draft heavy on that side of the ball once again. Not to mention the brain trust seems dedicated to doing just that according to recent comments.
The Ravens finished 23rd in pass defense last season and got burnt for several big plays. They signed unrestricted free agent safety Kendrick Lewis, who they believe will solidify the free safety position. The Ravens will be looking to team Lewis up with restricted free agent Will Hill or Matt Elam, who was a first round pick two years ago. This leaves the biggest defensive need at cornerback.
With Ladarius Webb almost 30 and Jimmy Smith’s contract expiring after this season, the Ravens are definitely in the market for a cornerback and the draft would present an ideal opportunity. The position has depth and the Ravens will probably be able to draft one of college football’s top four cornerbacks with their first round pick (26th overall).
