Round 1, 14th Overall, Ravens: Kenyon Green, OL, Texas A&M

Restocking the offensive line has to be one of the top priorities for the Ravens this offseason, and we were fortunate enough to have one of the top offensive line prospects fall right into our laps at pick No. 14.

Texas A&M’s Kenyon Green is a perfect target for the Ravens in the first round. He has experience playing both guard spots and right tackle and could feasibly play any of the three positions at the NFL level.

At 6-foot-4, 325 pounds, Green is a former five-star recruit who started three years at Texas A&M establishing himself as one of the best offensive linemen in the country.

Green could immediately step in as a day-one starter either at left guard or right tackle and could even be used as future insurance for Kevin Zeitler at right guard. The possibilities are endless.

Round 2, 45th Overall, Ravens: Christian Harris, LB, Alabama

The emergence of Patrick Queen in the second half of 2021 makes the linebacker position slightly less of a need for the Ravens this offseason, but it absolutely still needs to be addressed.

Josh Bynes was a nice story in 2021, but he isn’t a part of the future. One player who can be, however, is Alabama star Christian Harris.

Harris started three years at Alabama and has everything teams look for in a three-down linebacker. He’s a very good athlete, can cover, can fill gaps and stop the run, and has the football IQ to be trusted as a defensive signal-caller, as he was at Alabama.

The Ravens love their Alabama prospects and, in terms of scheme fit and position need, they might not find a better one in this class than Christian Harris.
