2. Dominick Puni, OT/IOL, Kansas

Puni is another player who could move to guard, but he has been getting hype as a Top 100 prospect irrespective of what position he sticks at. In a Jayhawks offense that loved to run the ball in very creative ways, Puni was consistently turning the best defensive linemen in the Big 12 into a fine paste every week.

Puni's testing could shoot him firmly into the second round discussion. The Ravens could go OT at No. 30 overall, but if not, adding a mauler like Puni with versatility, solid athleticism, and success in a run-heavy offense could make for a natural transition to Todd Monken's offense.

The Baltimore Ravens could select Khyree Jackson

1. Khyree Jackson, CB, Oregon

The Ravens might need to address the secondary in the draft, no matter what happens with Marlon Humphrey. Baltimore has had success with longer cornerbacks that also have straight-line speed in the past, making the physical-hitting Jackson someone Zach Orr can develop into a fringe Pro Bowl talent.

If you have length and speed as a cornerback, teams will exhaust every effort to make up for technical flaws. Even though Brandon Stephens stepped up, Jackson has enough physical talent to eventually succeed him as CB2 or play a huge role in establishing a post-Humphrey chain of command.
