2. Jordan Travis

While the Ravens won’t draft a quarterback high, there are many Day 3 prospects who could catch their eye. Travis, Tulane’s Michael Pratt, and Tennessee’s Joe Milton are just a few of the names who could be picked in this range and become worthwhile developmental pieces behind Jackson.

Travis is a smaller prospect at 6-1 and 210 pounds, doesn't have the greatest arm in terms of talent, and is coming off a severe leg injury that ended his Florida State career. Those may not appeal to all teams, but the Ravens managed to turn Huntley into a viable pro quarterback when he came out of Utah with a similar profile.

The Baltimore Ravens could draft Jordan Travis.

Travis ran for 28 touchdowns in the last four years, throwing 65 touchdown passes against just 19 picks. A very cerebral player who can go through progressions and throw from a variety of arm angles, Travis, at his best, can whip the ball to all levels without making the big mistake.

With the Seminoles star reportedly getting a clean bill of health after his injury, teams like Baltimore should have an interest in bringing him into the fold. Travis will never be a Jackson-level runner (will anyone ever be?), but many of his best traits as a prospect could translate well to Baltimore.
