The Baltimore Ravens are hard at work trying to figure out which stars from the 2024 NFL Combine will make the best potential additions in a year that promises to be pivotal for the status of the organization. After a tough AFC Championship Game loss, the Ravens need to knock it out of the park this year.

Historically, Eric DeCosta (and Ozzie Newsome before him) has made a living off taking raw, undisciplined boxes of tools in the middle rounds and molding them into players through John Harbaugh's tactful instruction. The "best player available" approach has also been a Ravens staple historically.

The Ravens would be very proactive if they spent some of their earlier draft capital on these four workout warriors who managed to prove themselves in Indianapolis. Some performances were so impressive that the Ravens may have found a new first-round draft pick as a result.

4 NFL Combine Standouts the Baltimore Ravens could select in 2024 NFL Draft

4. Isaac Guerendo, RB, Louisville

Guerendo came into the Combine with doubters, as he was a seldom-used backup for four seasons at Wisconsin before splitting carries with fellow 2024 prospect Jawhar Jordan with the Cardinals. After his splendid testing times, however, it seems very likely that Guerendo will be picked before Jordan.

Guerendo led all running backs with a 41-inch vertical jump and a 4.33 40-yard dash. Accomplishing both of those feats at once is incredible, but doing it with a bigger 6-0 and 221-pound frame gives him one of the best Relative Athletic Scores (or RAS) for any running back in history.

Issac Guerendo could be a Day 3 pick for the Baltimore Ravens

Guerendo recorded 832 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns on 132 carries, implying that he will have fresh legs when he comes into the pros. With tremendous straight-line speed, Guerendo might have more big-play potential than any other Day 3 running back in this class.

No matter what happens with Gus Edwards and JK Dobbins, Baltimore has shown they are willing to add running back depth on Day 3, irrespective of what the starting situation is. Guerendo and Keaton Mitchell behind a strong bell cow would give the Ravens arguably the strongest running back room in the league.
