1. Baltimore Ravens drafted Myles Boykin over Maxx Crosby

The Baltimore Ravens drafted Myles Boykin with the 93rd pick in the 2019 NFL draft. Then, Maxx Crosby went 102nd. That one is going to sting. The Ravens already took Jaylon Ferguson just a few picks earlier, so you can argue that there was not a need, but that is too close for the Ravens to get a pass on.

Maxx Crosby is one of the best egde rushers in the NFL right now. He is entering the portion of his career where he may take that step to become an elite player. Meanwhile, Myles Boykin now plays special teams for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Baltimore Ravens have needed an edge rush pressence, and last season they called on guys such as Justin Houston and Jason Pierre-Paul because there was such a need. If they had Corsby, they may have had a Super Bowl caliber defense in the past few years, and they may have gotten over the edge. It was staring them in the face at pick 93.
