Round 4, 140th Overall, Ravens: Justyn Ross, WR, Clemson

Wide receiver may not be a pressing need, but don’t be surprised to see the Ravens explore their options on Day 3 of the draft. Clemson standout Justyn Ross could be one of those options.

At 6-foot-3, 205 pounds, Ross is one of the most physically dominant receivers in this year’s class with a basketball frame and an aggressive playstyle.

Ross overcame a potentially career-ending neck/spinal injury in 2020 to return and play an important role again in 2021. His injury concerns will likely cause him to drop in the draft, but that could be to the Ravens’ benefit.

Ross could be everything the Ravens once hoped Miles Boykin would be — a big-bodied red zone threat for Lamar Jackson to utilize.

Round 6, 194th Overall, Ravens: Thomas Booker, DL, Stanford

Even after adding John Ridgeway a few picks earlier, we opted to double-up on the defensive line adding Stanford standout Thomas Booker with the team’s last of 10 selections.

Booker is a well-rounded, intelligent defensive lineman who stands at 6-foot-3, 310 pounds. He has the versatility to line up all over on the defensive line with the athleticism to make a difference as both a pass rusher and in run defense.

While he lacks elite strength, Booker’s blend of athleticism, intelligence, and versatility means that defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald should have no trouble finding a role for him on defense.
