Ideal Round 3 targets for the Baltimore Ravens in 2023 NFL Draft: Tuli Tuipulotu, EDGE, USC

Another area of need for the Ravens is at edge rusher, and if USC pass rusher Tuli Tuipulotu is available for them at pick 86, it would be very, very difficult to pass on him. He's graded out as a second or third-round pick, depending on which outlet you trust. But, he's a very talented player who would be a solid selection in Round 2.

In the third round, though, the Ravens would feel like they cheated a little if they were able to get Tuipulotu. His production, especially last year in college, was out of this world. If you want top-tier production out of a Power Five conference, look no further.

In 2022, Tuipulotu totaled a ridiculous 22.0 tackles for loss, which included 13.5 sacks. Those numbers would be impressive for a second or third-round prospect, coming over two collegiate seasons, but Tuipulotu put up those numbers in just one year.

Tuipulotu is a versatile player, being able to line up in a variety of spots so long as he gets to do the one thing he does best: attack. If Tuipulotu is allowed to simply go after the football and isn't forced back into coverage for some odd reason, he will make plays. He's going to finish each play close to the football, and those are the types of players Baltimore needs to go after.
