The Baltimore Ravens are scouring the furthest reaches of the NFL Draft landscape to add prospects who could help them become a championship team, but the Ravens might be better off looking at some of the local prospects who are hoping the more recently successful of the two DMV teams takes a chance on them.

The Ravens have a bounty of standout local products who could be selected in the 2024 NFL Draft, as there are standout edge rushers, stout offensive linemen, and pesky defensive backs who could assimilate into Baltimore's culture and help their push for another championship.

The Ravens need to take a long look at each of these four prospects, all of whom either grew up in the Baltimore area or played at one of the local schools. With some luck, they could have a few fortuitous bounces and end up starring for their hometown team.

4 players with Baltimore ties the Ravens could select

Chris Braswell, EDGE, Alabama

Braswell is one of the most underrated players in this draft class, as he is one of the premier speed rushers in 2024 that was overshadowed by teammate and likely top-10 selection Dallas Turner. Based purely on his how converts speed to power and pressured the quarterback, Braswell is worth a Top-50 pick.

Braswell grew up in northeast Baltimore and went to St. Frances Academy. A former running back in high school Braswell kept his elite athleticism after converting to defense. In Baltimore, the Ravens' defense will give him plenty of opportunities to strut his stuff in an elite unit.

Curtis Jacobs, LB, Penn State

A 240-pound thumper who could fly around the field and deliver big hits, Jacobs could be worth adding if the Ravens want to get more competition for Trenton Simpson. Jacobs grew up just south of Baltimore, and he could become a big part of the Ravens' championship push as a solid depth piece.

Cam Hart, CB, Notre Dame

A freaky 6-3 cornerback who played excellent man coverage as much as any DB in the Day 2 range, Hart may be one of the rare third-round corners who could become a starter on the outside as a rookie. Hart would be heading back home if the Ravens picked him, as he grew up in Greenmount East and went to Our Lady of Good Counsel.

Delmar Glaze, IOL, Maryland

While there aren't a ton of future Terrapins who project as high-end starters in this year's class, Glaze, who has already met with the Ravens, seems to be the one with the best potential. A versatile lineman who could slot in at guard or tackle, Glaze has plenty of road-grading power and improved pass protection tape.
