Round 2, 45th Overall, Ravens: Jaquan Brisker, S, Penn State

Ideally, we would have addressed either the offensive or defensive line with this pick, but with Penn State safety Jaquan Brisker staring us in the face at pick 45, we just couldn’t pass on the opportunity.

In a normal, non-Kyle Hamilton year, Brisker would be a safe bet to be the best safety in his class. He’s a high-IQ, versatile, rangy safety who can step in as an immediate starter in Mike Macdonald’s defense.

With DeShon Elliott set to be a free agent, the Ravens could look to secure a more durable upgrade and Brisker gives Baltimore exactly what they need.

His skill set can complement Chuck Clark and provide the Ravens with the athletic free safety they’ve been searching for since Earl Thomas departed.

Round 3, 76th Overall, Ravens: Chad Muma, LB, Wyoming

Chad Muma is maybe my favorite prospect in this class, and he just so happens to fill an important need for the Ravens as a three-down MIKE linebacker.

Muma was a do-it-all linebacker at Wyoming flashing his coverage ability, downhill run-stopping skills, and on-field leadership as the centerpiece of his team’s defense.

Patrick Queen made some important progress in his second season, but a lot of that progress came after he shifted over to more of a weak-side role.

Adding Muma would allow Queen to continue building off of his promising 2021 season while giving the Ravens a younger, perhaps better alternative to the aging Josh Bynes.
