2. Darius Robinson, EDGE/DT, Missouri

While the Ravens had been linked to one of his teammates in cornerback Ennis Rakestraw Jr. with some regularity, the combination of his Senior Bowl dominance and very promising testing numbers might make Robinson the best former Tiger in this draft class and a possible Ravens first-round pick.

Robinson ran a sub-5.00 40-yard dash at 285 pounds, and a 35-inch vertical jump for a 6-5 player with his frame is downright scary. Robinson looked like a terrific athlete in Mobile who was starting to put it all together, and his traits would be what every defensive line coach dreams of working with.

Will the Baltimore Ravens draft Darius Robinson?

Robinson recorded 8.5 sacks while moving around the defensive line quite a bit. While he might seem like a bit of a tweener who some think is too small to be a defensive tackle and too big for edge work in the NFL, Baltimore's flexible defense could be the perfect situation for him.

Robinson could be a possible No. 30 overall pick if they are unable to keep Jadeveon Clowney and Kyle Van Noy. As an edge rusher, Robinson could be a perfect Clowney replacement. Inside, he and Justin Madubuike could be one of the best pass-rushing tandems in the game.
