The Baltimore Ravens are just a few days away from making some of the most impactful picks in franchise history, as they need to address some of their offensive line and wide receiver issues in the 2024 NFL Draft. Those who are into predicting such things seem to think Baltimore will attack those issues heavily with their premium picks.

Dane Brugler of The Athletic posted a full seven-round mock draft that features Baltimore using their premium picks on a possible left tackle for the future, a wide receiver who could become an instant starter due to his downfield playmaking, and a tremendous athlete who makes big hits as a hard-hitting safety.

Brugler's mock has the Ravens addressing many of the key areas Baltimore is currently lacking in going into this season. Did he manage to hit a home run by both checking all the boxes in terms of pressing team needs while also finding adequete value? If so, Baltimore may come out of this process smelling like a rose.

Grading every pick in The Athletic's Baltimore Ravens 7-round Mock Draft

Round 1, Pick 30: Jordan Morgan, OT, Arizona

Morgan has become the popular pick of late at No. 30 overall, which is a testament to his impressive power, quality run-blocking, and success against the best pass rushers in the Pac-12. Morgan may not be a starter as a rookie, but it's easy to see a Pro Bowl player if he keeps improving year after year.

Grade: A-

Round 2, Pick 62: Xavier Legette, WR, South Carolina

Legette is a speedy receiver with a legitimate 6-3 frame and as much muscle as any wideout in this class. When paired with the diminutive, quick Zay Flowers underneath, the Ravens could have a tremendous blend of physicality and electricity that could give Jackson the best wide receiver corps he has ever had.

Grade: A

Round 3, Pick 93: Malik Mustapha, SAF, Wake Forest

Mustapha may not be the most refined player in coverage, but the Ravens will likely roll the dice on a player that is well over 200 pounds, runs a 4.33 40-yard dash. While he is a bit of a reach at this range, the Ravens can justify this as a gamble on pure athletic ability.

Grade: C+

Round 4, Pick 113: Khyree Jackson, CB, Oregon

If Jackson lasts this late, the Ravens should be doing cartwheels on the stage. With a 6-3 frame and insane athleticism, Jackson's lack of starting experience (one year) will be overshadowed by the fact he is a perfect corner for Baltimore's style.

Grade: A+

Round 4, Pick 130: Mohamed Kamara, EDGE, Colorado State

Kamara has piled up the production in college, as his 30 career sacks help make him a classic Group of Five force with dominant numbers that will be picked in this range despite iffy pass rush tool boxes that will likely force them into a backup role early in his career.

Grade: B

Round 5, Pick 165: Matt Goncalves, OG/OT, Pitt

Goncalves played tackle in college, and there is some debate over his true position in the pros. While some teams might be turned off by that, a Ravens team that values versatility on the line might be more interested than most in bringing him to town.

Grade: B+

Round 6, Pick 218: Marist Liufau, LB, Notre Dame

While it might be unwise to use another draft pick on a linebacker due to the expected emergence of Trenton Simpson, Liufau is of tremendous value at this point in the draft. Flip on the North Carolina State game and be amazed by his raw pursuit talent.

Grade: B+

Round 7, Pick 228: Tarheeb Still, CB, Maryland

Still was up-and-down during his last year at Maryland, but his athleticism and aggressiveness in coverage are worth a look.

Grade: C+

Round 7, Pick 250: Logan Lee, DT, Iowa

Lee is a bit thin for a run-stuffing tackle, but he played a big role in anchoring an elite Iowa defense, and that has to count for something.

Grade: B
