The Baltimore Ravens may still be over four months away from the 2022 NFL Draft. But with a host of roster needs to address and plenty of draft capital, it’s never too early to start looking ahead.

The Ravens are currently projected to enter the 2022 draft with a total of 10 picks, although that number could change depending on how the compensatory formula works out.

With a number of players set to hit the open market, the Ravens might be forced to turn to the draft in an effort to replace some of them. And even now, this is still a roster with plenty of holes.

Both the offensive and defensive lines will need to be addressed in some way this offseason. Positions like safety, linebacker, and cornerback could become holes depending on what the team does in free agency.

This Ravens roster is hardly without flaws. And with Lamar Jackson’s impending extension set to eat into their salary cap, they will be forced to rely on building through the draft.

That’s what makes next year’s draft so crucial. The Ravens need to hit on their picks. The pressure will be on for general manager Eric DeCosta and the rest of the front office and scouting department.

With that being said, we used The Draft Network’s Mock Machine to run through one possible scenario of how the Ravens’ 2022 draft class might look. Here are our results.
