It’s mock draft season for the 2020 NFL Draft and Ebony Bird’s Darin McCann has his first seven-round mock for the Baltimore Ravens!
I have done, maybe, 914,216 mock drafts for the Baltimore Ravens in the past few months. There have been drafts that add beef to both lines, drafts that bring speed to every outfit on the offense and drafts that involved three wide receivers, two safeties and an exorcist from one of the directional schools in the Gulf region.
The board changes from draft to draft, my mood is different based on something Ian Schultz wrote that morning or, honestly, sometimes I just want to shake it up and imagine something different from what I regularly have in mind. But after all these exercises, and God knows how many hours spent on YouTube or scouting websites, I have some general ideas of what players I might like in each round.
So, here is the first one I am sharing here. I went through the draft simulator at The Draft Network and didn’t include any trades (though that is now a cool feature they offer on the site for premium accounts). All in all, I’m pleased with how the draft went, though there were a few things that weren’t my ideal. For instance, I’m pretty much in love with Baylor’s Denzel Mims, but he was gone by the 28th pick. I was also hoping to grab an interior offensive lineman sooner than I did, but the board is what the board is, right?
So, for your disgust and rage, here’s my first public seven-round mock draft for the Ravens.
