The Baltimore Ravens are just two days away from one of the most important days in franchise history, as the 2024 NFL Draft will be the Ravens' best opportunity to both add reinforcements for yet another championship run while also adding talent that could keep Baltimore competitive well into the latter half of the decade.

The Ravens can go in so many different directions. With holes at offensive tackle and wide receiver, the Ravens could stay at No. 30 and take the best at those respective positions. Taking the best player available (Baltimore's usual strategy) and trading down may be on the menu for Eric DeCosta.

If the Ravens follow this template in the 2024 NFL Draft, they could be set up nicely for the future with long-term assets while filling some of the big holes contenders exploited last season. This 7-round mock draft might need a little bit of luck to come true, but the Ravens shouldn't hesitate to make it a reality.

Round 1, Pick 30: Tyler Guyton, OT, Oklahoma

This offensive tackle class is deep, but there are many boom-or-bust players at the top. Names like Guyton, Georgia's Amarius Mims, and Alabama's JC Latham should all be grouped together as right tackles with supreme athletic ability and physical gifts, some technical shortcomings, and a lack of experience.

The Ravens have been willing to take a chance on raw potential with both their top selections (Odafe Oweh) and their offensive tackles (Daniel Faalele) in the past. Guyton only has one season of starting experience, but the 6-8, 322-pound tackle is built to survive and thrive when he hits the NFL.

Guyton's heavy hands and surprisingly quick footwork make him a better pass blocker at this point in time than a run-blocker. With one of the best mixtures of length and power in this entire class, Guyton is such a seductive prospect that he could be a plug-and-play performer at right tackle or a developmental left tackle who succeeds Ronnie Stanley.

While this offensive tackle class is deep, there's a sizeable gap between many of the fringe first-round players and some of the better Day 2 targets. The Ravens need to build Derrick Henry and Lamar Jackson the best offensive line possible to maximize their window, and Guyton's star potential makes him an obvious choice.
