Round 2, 50th Overall, Ravens: Travon Walker, DE/DT, Georgia

The Ravens will need to completely reshape their defensive line in the offseason with Brandon Williams and Calais Campbell set to depart, not to mention the uncertain future of Derek Wolfe.

And although they missed out on drafting the best Georgia defensive lineman in the first round, they can still snag another excellent one here in Travon Walker. Walker is one of the most unique prospects in this year’s class.

At just 6-foot-4, 275 pounds, he’s a little undersized for a typical 3-4 defensive end role. But his raw power and strength give him tweener flexibility and allow him to play an interior role.

His versatility will go a long way in Wink Martindale’s defense and he has the strength and athleticism to become an All-Pro player in due time. Don’t let the overbearing hype surrounding college teammate Jordan Davis overshadow how good of a prospect Walker is.

Round 3, 82nd Overall, Ravens: Jalen Pitre, S, Baylor

The Ravens have long abided by a philosophy that you can never have too many defensive backs, and they learned that is absolutely the case this season given their injury issues.

Baylor’s Jalen Pitre is an intriguing prospect they can add on Day 2 of the NFL Draft with his versatility also serving as a major selling point. Pitre was named the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year after a standout senior season that saw him emerge as one of the best defensive backs in the nation.

He originally committed to Baylor as a linebacker before switching to more of a hybrid safety role. But Pitre has been able to excel everywhere from single-high safety to box linebacker to slot corner. He lined up all over the field in Baylor’s defense.

Pitre can give the Ravens some insurance at safety in case DeShon Elliott leaves and also provide extra depth in the slot given Tavon Young’s injury history. He’s a valuable player to have around on any NFL defense.
