No. 8: Odafe Oweh (2021)

Oweh was such an amazing athlete (4.37 40-yard dash at 260 pounds) that he was taken in the first round despite never recording a sack in his final season at Penn State. The pros have been an exercise in frustration for Oweh, as he has piled up just 13 sacks in three years with Baltimore.

Oweh will be in a more prominent role this season, as the loss of Jadeveon Clowney and looming uncertainty around Kyle Van Noy will pencil him in as one of the starters. If Oweh takes a Justin Madubuike-type leap this year, he will end up with a very nice payday that sets him up well.

Zay Flowers looks like a solid pick for the Baltimore Ravens

No. 7: Zay Flowers (2023)

Flowers looks like a limited receiver due to his size, but he is magnificent at creating space for himself and using his speed to stretch the field. Even as a rookie in a run-heavy offense with tons of tight end action in the passing game, Flowers caught 77 passes for 858 yards and five touchdowns.

Flowers has shown that his peak is that of a regular 1,000-yard receiver, even in a Baltimore offense that is built on the running game and doesn't ask him to catch 10 passes every game. If Todd Monken airs it out more this year, Flowers could really start to strut his stuff in this offense.
