Michael Natelli releases his first 2020 NFL Draft mock and makes a jump up in the first round to grab an exciting play-maker.

On a recent call with reporters, Baltimore Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta said his goal this offseason is to build an offense that is, as he put it, “undefendable.”

Up until the disappointing playoff loss to the Titans, you could make the case that it already was in 2019. The Ravens set the new NFL team rushing record (3,296), had two 1,000-yard rushers in Lamar Jackson and Mark Ingram. They also saw Jackson put up 36 passing touchdowns and a 113.3 passer rating en route to becoming the second unanimous MVP in NFL history.

But the 12-point playoff performance and the drops that accompanied it surely still ring loud in the ears of DeCosta, John Harbaugh, and Greg Roman. The Ravens already made some big moves to bolster the defense in March, but Baltimore is a team driven by scoring now and is looking to push their revolutionary offense to the next level; “Revolution, 2.0”, as BaltimoreRavens.com’s John Eisenberg put it.

Some mock drafts exist just to guess what will happen, others put the writer in the GM chair. I opted to do some of both here. I’m in the GM chair, and put my spin on doing what it looks like the Baltimore war room is out to accomplish next week.

Without further ado, I present: “The Revolution 2.0 Mock Draft.”
