Round 4, 108th Overall, Ravens: Alec Lindstrom, C, Boston College
This pick largely depends on what happens with Bradley Bozeman this offseason. If Bozeman is re-signed, there really isn’t a reason for the Ravens to explore the center market.
But if the expected happens and Bozeman walks, Boston College’s Alec Lindstrom becomes an intriguing mid-round target. Coming from a successful NFL lineage, Lindstrom is a technically-sound blocker who projects as a starting-caliber center at the NFL level.
At 6-foot-3, 298 pounds, Lindstrom is agile with good lateral mobility. He doesn’t have ideal length or raw power, but he makes up for it with a competitive drive and an NFL-ready skill set.
Lindstrom could compete for the starting center job as a rookie with the hope that he could develop into a long-term answer at the position.
Round 4, 117th Overall, Ravens: John Ridgeway, DT, Arkansas
The Ravens need to add some youth to their defensive line this offseason, and if they’re in the market for a new nose tackle, Arkansas’ John Ridgeway makes plenty of sense.
A former Illinois State standout, Ridgeway transferred to Arkansas in 2021 and immediately stepped in as the team’s starting nose tackle. The 22-year-old was the anchor of his team’s defense setting the tone up front against some of the best offensive lines in college football.
Ridgeway is a plus run defender who plays with heavy hands and a powerful anchor. He’s an ideal mid-round replacement for Brandon Williams and someone who can contribute early in his NFL career.
