4. Ravens draft target: Trevor Penning, OT, Northern Iowa
No player has been more frequently mocked to the Ravens than Northern Iowa offensive tackle Trevor Penning. Hailing from a small school, the Combine was always going to be an especially important event for a prospect like Penning.
And, to his credit, he more than lived up to the hype.
Penning clocked an incredible 4.89 40-yard dash time which at his size is almost unheard of. The Northern Iowa product measured in at 6-foot-7, 325 pounds, yet still ran faster than guys significantly smaller than him.
The Ravens are in the market for a new right tackle and Penning offers more physical upside than almost any other tackle prospect in this class. His nasty demeanor makes him a perfect fit in the Ravens’ offense.
3. Ravens draft target: Travon Walker, DE/DT, Georgia
We’ve reached the Georgia portion of this article. No school had as much success at the NFL Combine as Georgia did, due in large part to the outstanding performances of their three defensive linemen.
First up is Travon Walker, another player who has been frequently mocked to the Ravens in the first round. Walker posted an absurd 4.51-second 40-yard dash and a ridiculous 6.89-second three-cone time.
The former Georgia star was often overshadowed in a loaded front seven in college, but Walker projects as someone who could be a much more productive player in the NFL.
His athleticism and versatility are reminiscent of Rashan Gary, and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him land in the top-15, especially after his performance this week.
