Mark Walton- RB Miami
Seeing as how the Ravens won’t be picking at 52 tomorrow night, after trading that asset to the Eagles in exchange for the 32nd selection. The likelihood of a Derrius Guice being there at any point when The Ravens are on the clock tomorrow evening is at about a zero. They will have to look elsewhere to fill the need. While some believe they are set with Alex Collins, Kenneth Dixon and Buck Allen, there are others that tend to disagree. Enter Mark Walton.

Walton had quite a year in 2016. Rushing for over a thousand yards for 14 touchdowns and 5.3 yards a carry. Also, catching 27 passes for 240 yards and a touchdown. And was most likely going to go on another tear before reinjuring his ankle and ultimately ending his season. In four games with the Hurricanes, Walton racked up 428 yards and three touchdowns before ending his year vs the Seminoles. Before the injury if you asked draft experts who the top draft eligible running backs were, Walton most likely would’ve been one of those names.
Taking him at the top of round three with the 65th selection would be quite a reach. But drafting the running back with the 83rd overall selection, wouldn’t be the worst idea. Giving Alex Collins a running mate so to speak, would pack a nice one-two punch. Hoping offensive coordinator Marty Morningwig will stick to the run game in 2018. Walton could possibly help give the Ravens offense a much-needed boost in 2018.
