This year’s draft marks the Baltimore Ravens’ highest first-round pick since 2016, when the team plucked offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley with the sixth overall selection.

With pick No. 14, the Ravens have plenty of reachable options who could satisfactorily plug in quite a few of their roster holes like center Tyler Linderbaum or defensive end Devonte Wyatt.

Sure, those “reachable” picks make sense and all, but what about living life on the edge? What if, by some unpredictable act of the football gods, the Ravens could actually pick one of their absolute dream targets in 2022?

The 2022 draft also promises to be more fickle than others with no de facto No. 1 prospect like Trevor Lawrence in the previous draft. If Baltimore could pick any top prospect to fall down to pick No. 14 (or if Baltimore were to trade up a few spots), who would the team want the most?

The team made several shrewd moves these past two weeks, including re-signing Calais Campbell and Josh Bynes, and though their free agency activity was minimal, it was productive.

Gone are the likes of Za’Darius Smith and Bobby Wagner — but if the Ravens pick up any one of these highly touted prospects, all their former disappointments will quickly fade away.

Here are three dream players in the 2022 draft who the Ravens should pray (on your knees, pray) will fall to the 14th pick.
