Baltimore Ravens draft history: The second day of the draft
The Baltimore Ravens always want to load up on NFL Draft picks. With that in mind, how do the Ravens usually do on day two of the NFL Draft.
The Baltimore Ravens could theoretically load up on draft picks in the second and third rounds of the NFL Draft. They have the 28th overall pick so trading out of the first round isn’t all that unrealistic. They could tag and trade Matt Judon and that could get them something to do on the Friday of the NFL Draft. One thing the past two drafts have shown is that the purple and black are unafraid of making a series of trades over the course of the NFL Draft.
While it is unlikely to see the Ravens trade up in the first round of the draft, they could be more assertive in round two especially with their to be compensatory picks aiding them. DeCosta and Newsome have clearly trusted their ability in the draft so they want as many picks as possible. In 2018 the Ravens had 12 draft picks. That’s the dream scenario. They want 12 chances to improve the team. Because there are no promises with draft prospects it also gives them some forgiveness if they miss on a pick.
Understanding the history the franchise has had is a very helpful thing when it comes to the NFL Draft. The Ravens need to be aware of what they have done well and what they have done poorly. One interesting angle here is look at how the team has done in each round. Today we’re zoning in on the second day of the draft. This is the second and third round retrospection for the Ravens which will focus mostly on the last 10 years. How do the Ravens do on the second night of drafting? How can it inform their decision-making? Let’s get into that right now:
