The Baltimore Ravens have made a habit of plucking some of the best talent from the University of Michigan. A popular spot for toolsy depth pieces, the Ravens have even plucked like DC extraordinare Mike Macdonald from Ann Arbor. However, the latest coaching moves could make it tough to take top talent.

Jim Harbaugh rejoined his brother, John Harbaugh, in the NFL, becoming the head coach of the Los Angeles Chargers. With the Wolverines fresh off a national championship, it would make a ton of sense for Harbaugh to bring some familiar faces over to Los Angeles.

With an obscene 18 different Wolverine players being invited to the 2024 NFL Combine, this draft will have such a Michigan flavor that they might pass out Vernors to everyone who attends. The maize and blue's uncommonly excellent season could give Baltimore a very clear set of targets to replenish their depth.

These four Wolverines could all be possible targets for Eric DeCosta and the Ravens as they try to guard against some of their best names leaving in free agency. Drafting all four might be overkill, but it could be tough if the Ravens come out of this draft without at least one of these players.

4. LB Junior Colson

The race for the top linebacker in this class is still very wide open, although Texas A&M's Edgerrin Cooper and Clemson's Jeremiah Trotter Jr. seem to be in the best position. If he blows up at the Combine, Colson might be able to sneak into that rarified air.

Colson was just a few tackles shy of back-to-back 100 tackle seasons as the most important member of Harbaugh's front seven. Tipping the scales at just under 250 pounds, Colson is a traditional thumper in the middle who provides a nice counterbalance to Roquan Smith.

Not only is Patrick Queen a free agent who could command big money this offseason, but Baltimore is also losing a hybrid linebacker/pass rusher in Kyle Van Noy. Colson might not be a no-doubt Day 1 contributor, but he could be entrenched as a starter by 2025 after learning under Zach Orr.

John could prevent Jim from reconstructing his ideal Michigan defense in Los Angeles, as Colson was one of the few constants on a team that underwent some big changes on both sides of the ball. Even if they retain Queen, Colson's talent is so bountiful that picking him wouldn't be that insane.
