The 2022 NFL Draft may not be in the front of many Baltimore Ravens fans’ minds. With the team sitting at 5-2 and looking forward to a postseason push, most probably aren’t thinking about the offseason.

But now that the bye week has arrived, it’s probably time to start taking a look at a few players the Ravens could look to target in the coming months.

The first round of the NFL Draft has been hit or miss for the Ravens in recent years. For every Lamar Jackson, there’s been a Hayden Hurst.

For every Marquise Brown who’s beginning to come into his own, there’s a Patrick Queen who’s still plagued by inconsistencies.

Overall, it’s hard to argue with general manager Eric DeCosta’s draft record. And the 2022 NFL Draft will offer yet another opportunity to add some young talent to the roster.

This is a Ravens team that’s very much in transition. Despite an extensive amount of young cornerstone players, the Ravens still have quite a few veterans who might be departing in the offseason.

They’ll need to turn to the draft to replace many of those players, not to mention those on expiring contracts who the team might not be able to afford to re-sign.

Let’s take a look at five potential prospects the Ravens could target in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft.
