Round 3, 93rd Overall, Ravens: Travis Jones, DL, Connecticut

The Ravens are desperate for defensive line help this offseason, and ideally, we would have addressed the position sooner. Nonetheless, Baltimore adds a promising young interior lineman here in Connecticut’s Travis Jones.

Jones stands at 6-foot-4, 328 pounds, and has been praised up and down for his work ethic and leadership. He has excellent functional strength and the versatility and athleticism to line up at multiple spots along the defensive line.

Jones could be an ideal addition with veterans like Calais Campbell, Brandon Williams, Justin Ellis, and even Derek Wolfe possibly departing in the offseason.

Round 3, 101st Overall, Ravens: Mykael Wright, CB, Oregon

The Ravens love drafting defensive backs and they’ll probably be forced to do so this offseason, even after adding a pair in the 2021 NFL Draft. Oregon’s Mykael Wright is who they target here.

Wright is a good athlete who doubles as both an effective man-cover corner and a proficient downhill tackler. On top of that, he also has plenty of experience on special teams and in the return game.

The Ravens have a decision to make on Anthony Averett in the offseason and it seems rather unlikely that he returns at this stage. Even with Marcus Peters due to return, the Ravens need secondary help.

They snag another member of Oregon’s defensive backfield here in Mykael Wright.
