6. Ravens draft target: Spencer Burford, OG, UTSA

The Ravens will be looking to upgrade their offensive line this offseason, and one of the more intriguing options on Day 3 could be UTSA’s Spencer Burford.

A former four-star recruit, Burford played tackle at UTSA and there will be some teams who project him at that position in the NFL. The versatility to play both guard and tackle is certainly an appealing aspect of his game.

However, perhaps his strongest asset is his athleticism. That was on full display at the Combine with some even referring to him as the “smoothest athlete” at the event.

Burford’s athleticism and versatility could leave him in high demand, and the Ravens could be among those interested.

5. Ravens draft target: Zion Johnson, OG, Boston College

Once seen as more of a Day 2 prospect, it would be a shock if Zion Johnson fell out of the first round at this stage. And at this rate, making a case to be a top-20 pick come April.

Johnson carried over his momentum from a strong showing at the Senior Bowl by putting together a very impressive performance at the Combine. He might have been the best interior offensive lineman in Indianapolis.

Johnson’s 7.38 three-cone time ranked in the 92nd percentile while his 1.80 10-yard split was one of the fastest of the day. His athleticism could carry him to a top-20 pick in this year’s draft.

Is 14 a little too rich for Johnson? Perhaps, but don’t rule him out as a possible target for the Ravens on Day 1 if his stock continues to soar.
