5 draft prospects the Ravens have met with at the NFL Combine
4. The Ravens have met with: Travon Walker, DE, Georgia
Travon Walker is a player who’s frequently been mocked to the Ravens in the first round, and it’s not hard to see why. Although he was overshadowed by the larger Jordan Davis on a talented Georgia defensive line, Walker is still a rock-solid first-round prospect with a high ceiling.
At 6-foot-5, 275 pounds, Walker is more of a tweener with the versatility to line up both on the edge and in the interior. There are shades of Rashan Gary to his game given his versatility and obvious athletic traits.
Walker is a former five-star recruit with a basketball background that’s evident when you watch his tape. His explosiveness is unmatched and he plays with a high motor and a relentless drive to get to the opposing quarterback.
The Ravens could use some extra pass rush help and Walker would give them just that. He would make for an enticing chess piece in Mike Macdonald’s defense.
5. The Ravens have met with: Josh Paschal, DE, Kentucky
Josh Paschal has flown under the radar for the majority of the pre-draft process to this point, but he’s finally starting to pick up some momentum and climb up draft rankings.
At 6-foot-3, 278 pounds, Paschal is another tweener-type, and although he doesn’t possess the same physical gifts that Walker does, he does offer the same level of versatility.
Paschal was used all over Kentucky’s defensive line and has been praised for his technical refinement and on-field leadership. As Kyle Crabbs of The Draft Network puts it, he’s “someone you’re going to want to have in your locker room.”
The Ravens need to bolster their defensive line with young talent and Paschal is exactly the type of player they should be targeting on Day 2 or 3 of the draft.
