2. Ravens draft target: Devonte Wyatt, DT, Georgia

Travon Walker was hardly the only Georgia defensive lineman who showed out, however. Devonte Wyatt made sure to make some waves as well.

Wyatt’s 4.77 40-yard dash is one of the fastest times by a defensive tackle since 2003, and at 6-foot-3, 304 pounds, that type of speed is just downright scary.

Much like Walker, Wyatt was often overshadowed by his much larger teammate, Jordan Davis, at Georgia. And in reality, that was the case again this week.

But while many will be talking about the performances of Davis and even Walker, it’s important not to overlook Wyatt who has every chance to be a top-50 pick as well.

1. Ravens draft target: Jordan Davis, DT, Georgia

Perhaps no player stole the show more than Jordan Davis did this week. Davis showed up and measured in at 6-foot-6, 341 pounds already making him one of the largest players in the entire draft.

But it’s hard to put into perspective just how dominant his Combine performance was. Davis’ 10’3″ broad jump set a new record by any player in NFL history over 300 pounds. Again, Davis weighs in at over 340 pounds.

His insane 4.78 40-yard dash was faster than any player over 310 pounds since at least 2006. Once again, Davis weighs 341 pounds. There’s a metric called “Relative Athletic Score” that measures just how athletic any given player is based on their testing numbers, size, and position (among other factors).

Of the 17,565 players in the RAS database, Davis received the second-highest score behind just Calvin Johnson. That’s how unprecedented what Davis did this week was.

The Ravens need defensive line help, and it might be hard to pass on a player as talented as Jordan Davis if he’s available at pick 14. He’s a certified freak.
