4. Rashee Rice could be a draft target for Baltimore Ravens

Rashee Rice blew up in 2022, and became the all-time leading receiver in a single season for SMU, passing Emmanuel Sanders. The year put him on the map and took him from a potential day-three pick to a firm lock for the second day of the NFL draft.

Rashee Rice also performed well at the Senior Bowl, and at the NFL Combine, and his stock is on the rise. We compared him to Brandon Aiyuk because he is a long-limbed athlete who works best with the ball in his hands.

Rice still has work to do with his route tree, but his thick size, and quick feet, combined with his long arms allow him to create space in the middle areas of the field, similar to Aiyuk. The Ravens would love to add a receiver who can work with the ball in his hands, and he certainly is not the small wideout like Hollywood Brown, James Prohce, and Devin Duvernay from recent years.

The question with Rice is how his stock went up. Is he a second-rounder now, or can the Baltimore Ravens consider him in round three?
