Round 4, 108th Overall, Ravens: Channing Tindall, LB, Georgia

Linebacker is one of a number of offseason needs on the Ravens roster that has been overlooked to this point. Josh Bynes was a nice surprise in 2021, but he clearly isn’t the long-term solution.

The Ravens need another linebacker to pair up with Patrick Queen in the middle of their defense and Georgia’s Channing Tindall could be that player.

While Tindall is still a work in progress in coverage, he has the speed and athleticism to develop in that area. One strength of his game remains his run defense where he uses his speed and instincts to shoot gaps and make plays behind the line of scrimmage.

Tindall could play a rotational role as a rookie competing for snaps alongside Queen on early downs before hopefully developing into a three-down player in the near future.

Round 4, 117th Overall, Ravens: Andrew Stueber, OT, Michigan

The Ravens can’t just settle for one offensive line pick, however. Not when there are still glaring holes at both left guard and right tackle.

That’s why we gave them Michigan offensive tackle Andrew Stueber here in the fourth round. Stueber is a physically impressive lineman, standing at 6-foot-7 and nearly 340 pounds.

While he lacks the athleticism to project favorably as a left tackle, he has impressive raw strength and the length to get by as a right tackle.

He could compete for reps as a rookie and, with a little extra refinement, perhaps become the long-term right tackle of the future. He just has the attitude of a Ravens player.
