Round five: Malcolm Koonce, EDGE, Buffalo
Michael Koonce is a bit of a raw talent at edge rusher but he can be molded into a more than capable starter with the right coaching staff. Like we mentioned with Gregory Rousseau, this is an area that the Baltimore Ravens are intimately familiar with. Koonce would be a great stash-and-develop guy for Baltimore and feels like someone they can turn into a stud a couple of years down the road. This just feels like a classic Ravens pick.
Round five: Adrian Ealy, OT, Oklahoma
Another raw talent on day three, Adrian Ealy could become a replacement for Orlando Brown Jr. down the road. Ealy is a product of Oklahoma like Brown Jr., so he’s already a good run blocking tackle with some nasty hands to match. Ealy’s potential is starting-caliber and he’s available later in the draft because he’s a bit of a project. Similar to edge rushers, Baltimore is good at developing late-round offensive linemen. I like the chances of the Ravens being able to develop Ealy into something special.
Round six: Alaric Jackson, IOL, Iowa
Alaric Jackson played tackle in college but he’s much better suited to be a guard at the next level. If one thing is for certain though, it’s that he has the potential to be a road-grader. Iowa has a great track record for developing offensive line talent and the Baltimore Ravens haven’t been shy about their trench players. Jackson could wind up being the all-important swing tackle and sixth offensive lineman for the team and any fan of the team can tell you how pivotal that position is to the offense. Jackson is the absolute best-case scenario for drafting an offensive lineman in round six or later.
