Baltimore Ravens get third round compensatory pick
The Baltimore Ravens have received a third round compensatory pick for the 2019 NFL Draft:
According to reports, the NFL has awarded the Baltimore Ravens with a compensatory pick in the third round. The Ravens now have eight draft picks for the 2019 NFL Draft. The compensatory pick is for the Ravens losing Ryan Jensen last year. The Ravens now have two picks in the third, fourth and six rounds of the draft. This could mean the Ravens will be very busy on the second and third days of the NFL Draft, or it means they have ammunition to complete trades.
The Ravens traded back into the first round last year to get Lamar Jackson. That lost them their second round pick in 2019. At pick 22, the Ravens could trade back to get back into the second round. The Ravens have made a habit of trading back to acquire more picks. It’s why the Ravens had 12 picks in the 2018 NFL Draft.
This will be Eric DeCosta’s first year as the decider in the Ravens’ war room. It’s safe to say that the compensatory pick is welcome news to him. The Ravens have proven that they can find starters in the third and fourth rounds. Mark Andrews and Orlando Brown Jr. were taken in the third round last year.

Not having a second round pick isn’t the end of the world for the Ravens. This round has given Baltimore some trouble in recent years. Kamalei Correa, Arthur Brown and Maxx Williams were all second rounders who didn’t live up to their billing, while the jury is still out on Tyus Bowser. The third and fourth rounds, where the Ravens have four picks have been where many of their most solid picks have come from.
