Baltimore Ravens 2023 rookie draft class stock report before preseason finale

Zay Flowers' stock is obviously on the rise. Can any other Ravens rookies join him?
Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Baltimore Ravens draft class is not as big as in recent years, and it was a lot of players on the third day and not many on the second. So, the expectations were not sky-high. Still, things could be better for the Baltimore Ravens rookies. How are things trending so far?

Baltimore Ravens rookie stock report before preseason finale

Round 1 Zay Flowers - Stock Up

Zay Flowers has looked the part in the preseason, and we probably do not even need to see him in the preseason opener. He beat the Washington secondary with ease, and that included first-round rookie Emmanuel Forbes, who was drafted ahead of Flowers. He may be on track to lead the Ravens in receiving.

Round 3 Trenton Simpson - Stock Down

Trenton Simpson still has not beaten Del'Shawn Phillips for the backup spot behind Patrick Queen, and fans thought that he may push Queen out by now. Some of it is injury-related, but a lot of it is coming from being positionless at Clemson. He is processing slowly and has a ways to go to get on the field as a rookie.

Round 4 Tavius Robinson - Stock Down

Tavius Robinson started in the preseason opener but struggled. In the second week, he came in as the backup behind Jeremiah Moon. Moon is in his second NFL season, but he is a former UDFA. Beyond that, rookie UDFA Malik Hamm has shown as much upside as Robinson.

Round 5 Kyu Blu Kelly - Stock Down

Kyu Blu Kelly is on the verge of being cut. The Baltimore Ravens made sure to sign Ronald Darby because they could not fathom a world where Kelly sees the NFL field this year. He has not beaten out Kevon Seymour and is behind Marlon Humphrey, Darby, Rock Ya-Sin Brandon Stephens, Jalyn Armour-Davis, and Seymour, and that is just on the outside, without including the slot cornerbacks. He is best served on the practice squad.

Round 6 - Sala Aumavae-Laulu - Stock Down

This one is a bit unfair because Sala Aumavae-Laulu was in the running to start just two weeks ago, and that is impressive for a day-three player. At the same time, his work in the preseason ended the training camp competition with ease. If anything, he showed that if John Simpson did not win the job, the team would be in trouble, and that is concerning.

Round 7 - Andrew Vorhees - Stock Up

Andrew Vorhees is a stock-up because he is healthy, and the right guard job remains wide open next year. We have not seen him play.
