Baltimore Ravens End-of-Season 2021 NFL Mock Draft
6th Round (186) – Khyiris Tonga, IDL (BYU):
Damien Harris ran all over the Ravens when they were missing a few interior linemen in Week 9. Especially with Brandon Williams a possible cap casualty, Baltimore needs another run-stuffer in the mix, At 6″4, 322 pounds, there are few better in this draft than BYU’s Khyiris Tonga. What stands out most about Tonga is that he is more than pure mass. He has remarkable strength at the point of attack and is also surprisingly quick for someone his size. Tonga was also occasionally deployed as a fullback on goal-line sets in college, so he could add another wrinkle to Baltimore’s goal-line offense.
7th Round (193) -Dayo Odeyingbo, DE (Vanderbilt):
Vanderbilt’s Dayo Odeyingbo is considered a defensive end but can line up just about anywhere in the front seven. For as often as injuries hurt the Ravens in 2020, quality defensive depth should be a priority this offseason, and finding a versatile asset like Odeyingbo can check several boxes at once. Odeyingbo’s versatility also plays perfectly into Wink Martindale’s scheme that often deploys players out of their conventional positions.
With Derek Wolfe, Jihad Ward, and Justin Ellis all currently not under contract next year, the Ravens could also simply be looking for bodies to group with Calais Campbell along with the defensive interior next season. Odeyingo would almost certainly not start right away but could see the field more than the average depth piece because of his positional flexibility.
