Richard Bradshaw’s mock draft
Kenneth Murray is a stud inside linebacker who has the sideline-to-sideline speed and instincts needed to make every play in the front-seven. He’s a Defensive Rookie of the Year candidate from day one.
The Baltimore Ravens need help on the interior of the offensive line due to injuries, a lack of depth, and the retirement of Marshal Yanda. Matt Hennessy can slide into one of the three interior spots and provide quality play from day one.
The Ravens just drafted Higgins, but the opportunity to get Bryan Edwards at the end of day two is too enticing to pass up. Edwards brings good hands and YAC ability combined with ideal size and play-style to round out Baltimore’s wide receiver room.
Anfernee Jennings is already at the same play level that Tyus Bowser is and can become an even better player. Jennings has heavy hands to the length to keep tackles off his pads. He’ll be a strong fixture in the pass rush early on.
Baltimore doubles down at edge rusher by adding a high-upside player in Alton Robinson. Robinson has all the tools to flourish and can be eased in through the Ravens deep rotation at the position.
Defensive line is far from a need for the Ravens, but adding Leki Fotu to the group is an appealing thought. Fotu can be eased and groomed into a role with the team behind guys like Brandon Williams and Daylon Mack.
Antoine Brooks Jr. is a do-it-all defensive back who is a playmaker throughout the defense. He’ll be a key backup and special-teams asset for the Ravens as they begin preparing for life after Anthony Levine.
