2. Baltimore Ravens find a strong trade back option

Most fans will be pushing for a cornerback or wide receiver in the first round. However, we all probably know what the Baltimore Ravens want. They want to trade back. The reality is that this may be their best move.

The Ravens have as few of picks as we have seen them in the recent run of franchise history. A team that is conscious about winning through the draft currently does not have the capital to do so. This is why trading back seems so likely.

Beyond that, the team has serious needs across the board. Sure, wide receiver and cornerback stand out, but defensive line and guard as issues as well. They could use some depth at linebacker, and both starting tackles have questions about their age and health status.

So, the Baltimore Ravens are in a spot where they have more needs than usual, and they have fewer picks than usual. A dream scenario is trading back, getting more picks, and filling more needs. In a perfect world, someone like Will Levis falls, but even Hendon Hooker may start to get attention by the Ravens' 22nd pick. Who else could be on the board at 22 that would give the Baltimore Ravens their best chance of trading down?
