The Baltimore Ravens own the No. 30 pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, as they lived with the consequences of a tremendous 2023 season that saw them just a few plays short of making it to the Super Bowl. Eric DeCosta has the benefit of waiting to select the best player available when they make their pick.

The Ravens may once again lean on their old philosophy of taking whichever stud falls to them, but the offense may need some serious attention outside of MVP Lamar Jackson and star addition Derrick Henry. The Ravens could use plenty of offensive line help in addition to a possible wide receiver move.

The Ravens will likely be proactive in figuring out ways to get talent around Jackson and set up an offense that is both equipped to win now in 2024 and sustainable enough to keep the winning ways up for the next few years. A strong seven rounds in April will be more than good enough to set the Ravens up well.

Round 1, Pick 30: Tyler Guyton, OT, Oklahoma

The Ravens may have signed Josh Jones, but that is nowhere near enough to call the new-look offensive line a done deal. The Ravens lost three of their five starters from last year's standout unit, watching John Simpson and Kevin Zeitler leave in free agency and trading away Morgan Moses.

Very few players benefitted from a strong Senior Bowl showing more than Guyton, who became a first-round target after showing the power and mauling demeanor from his Oklahoma tape translated against professional-level athletes. As a road-grader, there are few right tackles in this class better than him.

Guyton may not be the most athletic tackle in the world, and his inconsistent technique means he will need to get used to winning with more than just raw talent at the professional level. If that can be coached out of the 6-7, 328-pound tackle could be an impactful tackle for years to come.

Guyton starting at right tackle brings to mind memories of another mammoth tackle from Oklahoma in Orlando Brown Jr, who managed to parlay a solid Ravens career into a big contract with the Bengals. Guyton is a gamble on potential, but he could be a Pro Bowler regularly if it all fits.
