K’Von Wallace, Safety Clemson
Best fit for the Ravens: This is the least profitable tier for the purple and black. They don’t need a safety and here are three options for them. Their best bet here is Logan Sternberg, who has been one of my favorites in this draft process. Sternberg looks the part. He’s just a very solid guard who fits well in an offensive like the Ravens that gets him moving for run blocking. If you’re looking for a Marshal Yanda replacement, Sternberg isn’t a bad option. I have him as the third best interior lineman in this draft class.
If the Ravens are going to take a defensive lineman they should take Blacklock or Davis. I know my colleague Michael Natelli is very high on Neville Gallimore, so that’s a bonus name to consider here. Defensive line isn’t the priority though.
Let’s talk about these safeties. Earl Thomas isn’t going to last forever and defensive backs are often good investments. Grant Delpit is a player that I like because he’s aggressive and he’s a good athlete. My question with him is he just another Matt Elam who just attacked the football? I love aggressive safeties yet they don’t always work out and he’s a boom or bust player. Ashtyn Davis and K’Von Wallace are tough and really like to be enforcers from the safety position. They’re on my board so I’m not ignoring them, it’s just not the way I would prefer Baltimore to go tonight.
