4. Javon Baker, WR, UCF

The Ravens need to add at least one more wide receiver to their ranks in the draft, preferably one that can make big plays down the field. Baker, who transferred from Alabama in search of more playing time, gave the Knights a dose of adrenaline thanks to his route-running and ability to win 50/50 balls in contested situations.

Baker, who averaged just under 22 yards per catch last year, is being limited by a lack of great long speed. If he can end up in the 4.5 range at the Combine in the 40-yard dash, the Ravens should use a third-round pick on him, play him over Nelson Agholor, and not think twice about it.

The Baltimore Ravens could add Mohamed Kamara.

3. Mohamed Kamara, EDGE, Colorado State

Kamara may never be an every-down defensive end due to his shorter stature (6-1, 245 pounds), but he has more than enough craftiness as a pass rusher to carve out a solid role as a rotational sack master. If Baltimore brings back Jadeveon Clowney, Kamara could be a nice speedy complement in the rotation.

With 13 sacks this past season, production has never been a question with him. Baltimore's defense won't throw too much at him, allowing him to become better at defending the run while using legitimate edge-bending speed at the professional level to pile up the sacks as a rookie.
