Ravens NFL Draft: Top 25 players available for Day 2
Trevon Diggs, Cornerback (Alabama)
A.J. Epenesa, Edge (Iowa)
Yetur Gross-Matos, Edge (Penn State)
J.K. Dobbins, Running Back (Ohio State)
Jaylon Johnson, Cornerback (Utah)
Best fit for the Ravens: The three players stuck in the middle of this tier are all suitable options for the Ravens. A.J. Epenesa is probably falling because his NFL combine numbers weren’t great. He’s a rock solid prospect. At this point Epenesa may not offer the highest ceiling, but he might be the safest pick left on the board. Both Epenesa and Yetur Gross-Matos were commonly picked to the Ravens in mock drafts for the first round. Gross-Matos is a boom or bust prospect in my opinion though the ceiling is very high.
J.K. Dobbins is a very underrated prospect for the Ravens. He’s a running back from Ohio State that does a bit of everything. He was an explosive play-maker for the Buckeyes, the commentators seemingly said his name on a loop on Saturdays. With the running back position it really boils down to where they are on DeCosta’s board. The best player available mindset could theoretically get the Ravens a running back.
I have a hard time imagining the Ravens would take a cornerback this early with the amount of talent they have at the position. That being said Jaylon Johnson out of Utah fits the Ravens mold at cornerbacks like a glove. You can never have enough help at the cornerback position. Keep this thought in the back of your mind just in case the Baltimore brass surprises you tonight.
