3 younger replacements for Ravens’ Calais Campbell in 2022
3. Devonte Wyatt
A few mock drafts have Devonte Wyatt being taken off the board by the 15th pick, most likely because Wyatt enjoyed a breakout season this past year. While we wouldn’t hold our breath waiting for Baltimore picking him with their No. 14 pick, we certainly think Wyatt deserves the consideration.
The Georgia product finished his final collegiate season with a career-high 39 tackles, seven tackles for loss, and 2.5 sacks, proving his consistency and elite production throughout his four years as a Bulldog.
As a stout run defender with strong pass-rush instincts and the quickness and athleticism to disrupt plays, Wyatt flies as one of the more under-the-radar prospects in a very talented Georgia front-seven. His production may not be as impressive as another highly touted prospect on this list, but he’s been described as a versatile, three-down interior defensive lineman, and he has the potential to elevate the Ravens’ D-line in his first year.
Compared to the other top-caliber players Baltimore could nab with their first pick, Wyatt admittedly pales as more of a fringe first-rounder, but it’s hard to ignore his tremendous upside.
Wyatt’s best football is still ahead of him.
