7. Ravens target: Tyler Linderbaum, C, Iowa
Tyler Linderbaum only makes sense as a target for the Ravens if Bradley Bozeman walks. But if that does happen, Linderbaum instantly becomes one of the most intriguing first-round targets for the organization.
The Iowa product is an excellent athlete and that should be out on full display at the Combine. He’s already the unanimous top center in this class, but how much further will he climb up draft boards?
8. Ravens target: Bernhard Raimann, OT, Central Michigan
Bernhard Raimann is your classic developmental offensive tackle prospect. A native of Austria, Raimann originally played tight end at Central Michigan before switching to the offensive line.
At 6-foot-7, 305 pounds, Raimann has all the physical tools to be a stud in the NFL. Expect him to solidify that notion with scouts this week.
9. Ravens target: Tyler Smith, OT, Tulsa
Tyler Smith is another mid-round offensive tackle prospect who deserves more love than he’s getting. At just 20-years-old, Smith has the athletic traits to give him an All-Pro ceiling in the NFL.
He’s a little rough around the edges, but that shouldn’t matter at the Combine. Smith could turn a lot of heads with a standout performance in Indianapolis.
10. Ravens target: Leo Chenal, LB, Wisconsin
Moving away from the offensive line for a moment, Wisconsin’s Leo Chenal is one of the more intriguing linebackers in this year’s class. And that intrigue doesn’t end with his on-field abilities.
Chenal should tear it up on the bench press, and while that should be his primary selling point, he likely won’t test poorly in the athletic drills either. His blend of power and agility should pique the interest of numerous NFL teams.
