Baltimore Ravens: Ranking Need Level For Every Position
Level Of Need At Safety: 9
Assuming Webb gets cut, the Ravens will need to replace him. Eric Weddle is a great strong safety. The Ravens concerns will be at the free safety position. Baltimore is yearning for a ball hawk with speed and range. They saw Ed Reed show everyone how the free safety position should be played for years. Now, the Ravens need to find the next great safety.
Malik Hooker would make sense with the 16th pick in the NFL Draft. The safety from Ohio State is getting compared to Ed Reed on a daily basis. While I want a superstar wide out more than anything, Hooker would be the most obvious choice for the Ravens.

It would be hard to replace Webb in free agency. The Ravens aren’t going to win the Eric Berry sweepstakes. That leaves Christopher Conte as the next best option. Conte is a decent player but that wouldn’t be an overly thrilling signing. The Ravens need more speed and big plays in the back end of the defense. Finding the perfect match for Eric Weddle is imperative.
