Baltimore Ravens Mock Draft 2.0: Do Ravens draft a Quarterback?
Now that the Baltimore Ravens have finished their pre-draft press conference, they just have a few more top 30 visits before the 2023 NFL Draft. So, it is a good time to update the mock draft. This draft is hoping to predict what the Ravens will do. However, it will not feature trade downs, although the Ravens admitted they may trade down.
So, who will the Ravens be looking at?
Baltimore Ravens Round 1, Pick 22: Jordan Addison, WR, USC
Jordan Addison is a player that we highlighted and wondered if he would fall to the 22nd pick. However, as we have gotten closer to the NFL draft, the odds of Addison falling to the Ravens have gotten higher. His NFL combine did not help things, and his 2021 was better than his 2022.
Zay Flowers is getting a lot of buzz, and Jaxon Smith-Njigba did well enough at the combine that most see him as a player with more upside. So, Jordan Addison could be in play at pick 22.
Addison is not the tallest wide receiver, but he is more of a professional in his route running, and movement. Beyond that, his catch radius impresses for his size, as well as being able to haul in combatted plays.
He also would be a nice compliment to Rashod Bateman. When you add in what he can do with the ball in his hands, of the top wide receivers, you could argue that Jordan Addison would be the best fit for the Baltimore Ravens. For as much as the Ravens may want to trade down, if Addison is sitting there, and they see him as the top wide receiver, it will be hard to pass him up.
