6. Kamren Curl, SAF, Washington Commanders

The Ravens love to run three-safety looks on the defensive side of the ball, and the impending free agency of Geno Stone could complicate things. Curl would not only be a high-level starter, but he would make a very flexible Ravens defense even more lethal and multifaceted.

While Kurl lacks Stone's coverage skills, he more than makes up for it in versatility and hard-hitting. Kurl playing in the box while Marcus Williams does more traditional safety coverages and Kyle Hamilton keeps unleashing his unique skillset against unsuspecting coordinators could make for a hellacious Year 1 defense for Zach Orr.

The Baltimore Ravens need to sign a RB like Saquon Barkley

5. Saquon Barkley, RB, New York Giants

Reports seem to suggest the Ravens will aim for the stars in their quest to get Jackson a high-end running back with more skill than Gus Edwards, and Barkley would fit the bill. Even a casual observer can see the former No. 2 pick's Pro Bowl potential behind a more robust Baltimore offensive line.

Even with subpar quarterback play and terrible lines in front of him with the Giants, Barkley amassed just under 3,000 yards from scrimmage with 20 touchdowns in the last two years. Imagine those stats and Barkley's raw talent added to a backfield that contains Jackson making magic happen. As a running back, his cap hit won't sink the team's financial flexibility.
