The Baltimore Ravens are getting their first looks at what promises to be a very deep and talented 2024 NFL Draft Class at OTAs. GM Eric DeCosta received some noteworthy praise across the board for both addressing areas of need and finding solid value later in the draft.

As much as DeCosta would like for this to be the case, not all of these picks are created equal. Some of them will be more impactful than others, and a few of them will likely age poorly if they are unable to break into Baltimore's starting lineup at any point in the near future.

As OTAs start to wind down and the draft class recovers from their first shot at impressing the coaching staff, it's time to take stock of this class and how ready they are to make an impact in 2024. If DeCosta nails it yet again, the Ravens at the top of this list could become long-term pieces.

Ranking all 9 Baltimore Ravens 2024 draft picks from worst to best

9. C Nick Samac, 7th Round

While Samac will likely get some reps at both guard spots, Baltimore picked him with the intention of backing up Tyler Linderbaum at center. With Linderbaum fresh off a Pro Bowl season, it seems unlikely that Samac will see the field early in his career.

Rasheen Ali could be a nice pick for the Baltimore Ravens

8. RB Rasheen Ali, 5th Round

Ali is likely going to start his professional career buried on the depth chart, and he will likely need to beat out one of either Justice Hill or Keaton Mitchell to get significant reps. While his playmaking and nose for the end zone are promising, he needs some lucky bounces to go his way.

7. SAF Sanoussi Kane, 7th Round

Kane actually has a shot at getting some playing time during his rookie season. If he beats out undrafted free agent Beau Brade and fourth-year backup Ar'Darius Washington, he could earn the No. 3 safety spot that was left vacant when Geno Stone chose to join the rival Bengals.

Kane has always been a solid tackler for his size, and he has quality athletic ability in the open field, but he needs to show that his coverage skills are up to par if he is going to last in the pros. If they aren't Kane profiles as someone who could become an ace on special teams.
