The Baltimore Ravens are currently slotted to pick No. 30 overall in the 2024 NFL Draft, but the idea of trading down is always on Eric DeCosta's mind. While he has made some aggressive moves up in recent years, a move down might be in the best interest of the team.

Without one gigantic glaring need that needs to be addressed and some deep classes at offensive tackle and wide receiver, the Ravens might need to take a look at auctioning off No. 30 to the highest bidder and stockpiling a handful of selections in the middle rounds that could become impact playmakers.

If the Ravens decide to adhere to this strategy and stockpile Day 2 picks, they need to come out of the 2024 NFL Draft with some of these three studs. The Ravens could trade down and pick up three players who will all play an important role in turning Baltimore into a Super Bowl contender.

3. Kingsley Suamataia, OT, BYU

Suamataia is what you would want if you were sketching up an offensive lineman on a board. With tree trunk legs and an aggressive style that leaves edge rushers beaten down by the end of the game, some team is going to have a field day with him should the former Cougars star ever reach his full potential.

Suamataia is a better second-level blocker and puller than most tackles in this range, which could be even more appealing for a Ravens team that is going to run the ball until Derrick Henry throws up from exhaustion (in the regular season, at least).

Suamataia is one of those players who can win on pure physical gifts, and he needs to improve on his overall positioning and lateral mobility if he wants to handle NFL-level speed rushers. If he sits his rookie year on the bench, he could get slowly brought along as he tries to hone his skills.

Suamataia has enough power to might to right tackle and hold up. If the Ravens want to keep him at left tackle, he could spend his rookie year on ice while eventually taking over for Ronnie Stanley. Suamataia fits in with the profile of many other strong tackles the Ravens have picked in recent years.
