Baltimore Ravens Draft: 3 players to target with 3 4th round picks
The Baltimore Ravens have three fourth round picks. If they had their druthers, who should they take in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft:
The Baltimore Ravens have rebuilt the offense this offseason. They have finally retooled the wide receiver position through the NFL Draft and there is reason to be hopeful. Marquise Brown is a play-maker and Miles Boykin has real potential. They signed Mark Ingram to be the star in the backfield alongside Lamar Jackson. Jackson is entering his first full season as a starting quarterback. The Ravens got an edge rusher in Jaylon Ferguson out of Louisiana Tech. It’s been a good start. Here are the players that the Ravens should look at in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
1. Michael Jordan G (Ohio State)
Michael Jordan is a player that has a ton of upside and he’s the most athletic offensive lineman on the board. He’s raw but he could end up being a day 1 starter at left guard. Jordan is a powerful run blocker with a big build. If the Ravens draft Jordan they will have drafted at least one player for every area of need for the offense. Eric DeCosta has given Lamar Jackson weapons. Now he must add to the interior of the offensive line. It will help the Ravens new look passing attack and it will help them run the football.
2. Vosean Joseph, LB (Florida)
This is a productive linebacker who has been tested in the SEC. He had 93 total tackles last season with four sacks. Joseph is the best downhill linebacker remaining on the board. He would be able to come in and compete for a starting job after the departure of C.J. Mosley. At the very least he could prove to be part of a rotation with Kenny Young and the leader, Patrick Onwuasor. This would be a great value pick.
3. Anthony Nelson, Edge (Iowa)
If the Ravens want to keep adding to the outside linebacker group Nelson is a player that could fit the bill. Nelson is a lengthy athlete and he’s the best edge rusher remaining in terms of run defense. Nelson is a productive pass rusher who could also play on the defensive line. He’s a versatile player who would help the front seven. Nelson reminds me of Jarret Johnson, but with more potential as a pass rusher. This would be a steal in the fourth round.
The Ravens have a lot of exciting things that can happen in the fourth round. The third day of the draft will be a marathon but the Ravens three picks in the fourth round should give the Ravens Flock a boost for the day.
