"“I don’t go in with any preference on one side of the ball. Sometimes there are more needs on defense and the board is set up that way, so we stay with the board. But I don’t go in with any preconceived ideas of that.” —Ozzie Newsome"
The Baltimore Ravens have been able to maintain their perennial success in the NFL by building through the draft. This year will obviously be no different, but they do enter the draft with more holes and question marks than usual after a roster gutting offseason.
There are obvious holes at wide receiver and tight end. The offensive line is a strength, but features two starters in the last year of their contracts. Justin Forsett had a good year in 2014 but is 29 years old, and the Ravens could look to get their starting running back of the future in this draft. They are thin all across the defensive line and in the secondary, and have some aging pass rushers on defense.
The most difficult part of completing a full seven round mock draft for a particular team is predicting what the other 31 NFL teams will do. I’ve taken Scouts Inc. draft grades (Insider Content), combined them with the list of pre-draft visits and other contact the Ravens have made with draft prospects, and cross-referenced other seven round mocks to get an idea of who might be available at each Ravens pick.
So without further ado, here is your complete 2015 Baltimore Ravens mock draft.
