Round 4, 140th Overall, Ravens: Romeo Doubs, WR, Nevada

For the first time in what feels like forever, the wide receiver position isn’t a pressing need for the Ravens this offseason. But that doesn’t mean they’ll ignore it altogether.

While I wouldn’t expect the Ravens to make any significant investments at the position, as GM Eric DeCosta hinted at, they could still target a player in the middle rounds of the draft.

Nevada’s Romeo Doubs is a downfield playmaker who could give the Ravens the vertical threat they’re expected to lose with Sammy Watkins likely departing.

Doubs blends good size, at 6-foot-2, with outstanding speed and tracking ability that make him one of the best deep threats in this class.

Round 6, 194th Overall, Ravens: Charlie Kolar, TE, Iowa State

The Ravens love having as much tight end depth as possible, which is why it must have been painful for the team to trot out the likes of Eric Tomlinson and Josh Oliver behind Mark Andrews for nearly half the season.

Nick Boyle returned from serious injury midway through 2021, and while his return was certainly heartfelt, he clearly didn’t look like the player he was pre-injury.

Iowa State’s Charlie Kolar is a player I was surprised to see still available at this stage of the draft. At 6-foot-6, 255 pounds, Kolar has an NFL-ready frame and the well-rounded skill set to play at least a rotational role early in his career.

He’s a good blocker with an underrated set of receiving skills who can serve as valuable depth behind Boyle and an upgrade over Oliver as the Ravens’ TE3 in 2022.
