It's a tough pill to swallow, but the Baltimore Ravens are on to the offseason following a loss in the AFC Championship Game.
While a lot of critics out there will take their shots at Lamar Jackson, the Ravens know their quarterback shouldn't be to blame. Instead, the organization should be doing what they can to go out and get Jackson even more to work with.
Boasting the 30th pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, the Ravens should once again be looking at wide receiver help, to start with, and that's exactly what they do in our latest mock draft.
The Ravens work on giving Lamar Jackson what he deserves in this 2024 NFL mock draft
In the first round, we're likely to see LSU wide receiver Malik Nabers go within the top 10 picks. But, his counterpart should also hear his name called before Day 1 is up, and the Ravens would be thrilled to have him.
Brian Thomas is next up in the long line of NFL wide receiver talent coming out of LSU. Standing 6-foot-4, Thomas presents defenses with that real alpha type of frame. He has everything it takes to be a legitimate WR1 in this league, too.
Thomas has excellent footwork, being able to start and stop on a dime, which also allows for fluid and crisp cuts in and out of his routes. After the catch, Thomas is always a threat. It's not just his size that helps the yards after the catch, but his ability to cut and make defenders miss.
This is a guy Lamar Jackson will love throwing it downfield to, as well. Thomas averaged a whopping 17.3 yards per reception this last season, coming up with 68 receptions for 1,177 yards and 17 scores.
