Round 4, Pick 113: DJ James, CB, Auburn

James' biggest issue as a prospect is his size, as there aren't many 6-0, 175-pound corners with shorter arms starring in the pros. Even taking those issues into account, Baltimore might be willing to use a pick on him based on his sticky coverage and buttery smooth mobility in the open field.

If the Ravens feel confident enough in Marlon Humphrey and Brandon Stephens on the outside, James has legitimate slot corner potential if he manages to add a bit of weight. Baltimore let Geno Stone and Ronald Darby walk in free agency, which warrants at least one cornerback pick.

Round 4, Pick 130: Isaiah Adams, IOL, Illinois

Adams has versatility at both tackle and guard, and the Ravens always love to see that in their linemen. Comparing Adams to Ravens backup Patrick Mekari isn't too outrageous, as Adams has a wide base with powerful hands and surprising athleticism that helps him move well in the open field.

Even if the Ravens want to lean on young players like Andrew Vorhees and Ben Cleveland to replace John Simpson and Kevin Zeitler, they need more backups to give fans some added security. Adams should be treated as a guard above all else, but his ability to play tackle in a pinch is valuable.

Jordan Travis could be a backup quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens

Round 5, Pick 165: Jordan Travis, QB, Florida State

The Ravens need a better backup quarterback, as well-traveled Josh Johnson is very long in the tooth and Malik Cunningham could be ready to convert to wide receiver. While Travis is working his way back from an injury and possesses less-than-ideal size, he has several plus traits that will make him a high-end NFL backup.

Travis has some of the best mobility in this class, a whip of a right arm with more than enough talent to last in the pros, and an accuracy that helps him fit the ball into tight spaces. Much like Tyler Huntley, Travis can run the Ravens' run-heavy offense without too much adjusting.
