Adrian Killins Jr. is my needle in a haystack prospect for the 2020 Draft because absolutely no one is talking about him when they should be. Heck, he wasn’t even invited to the combine which was a surprise to NFL Networks Daniel Jeremiah. Killins played four years at UCF and in three of those seasons he averaged 6.5 yards per carry or more which is impressive. The trait that sticks out to me the most is his acceleration and speed, he reportedly ran a 4.39 40-yard dash at UCF which is blazing fast.
The Ravens don’t necessarily need a running back which is why I think it would be lazy to pigeon-hole him to a single position. He could be an explosive gadget type player on offense as well as an electric returner. Most seventh round draft picks don’t make the final roster so taking a chance on a potential play-maker isn’t such a bad idea.
First Round: Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama
Second Round: Curtis Weaver, EDGE, Boise State
Second Round: Willie Gay Jr, LB, Mississippi State
Third Round: Hunter Bryant, TE, Washington
Fourth Round: Ben Bredeson, IOL, Michigan
Fourth Round: Alton Robinson, EDGE, Syracuse
Fifth Round: Quintez Cephus, WR, Wisconsin
Seventh Round: Adrian Killins Jr., RB/ST, UCF
This may have been one of my favorite mock drafts and it’s not because Jerry Jeudy landed in Baltimore, it’s because every pick makes sense. Of course there’s a few things I would change such as drafting a linebacker earlier. That’s just how the board fell this go around and I had to go with the best player available while still addressing needs.
I wish I could have drafted another defensive lineman for depth purposes but that’s the sacrifice I made to make sure Jerry Jeudy was a Baltimore Raven. Other than that, I think all of the selections makes sense and would be massive additions to the 2020 Baltimore Ravens.
