Round 2, Pick 62: Ja'Lynn Polk, WR, Washington

The Ravens could be spoiled for choice at this point, as receivers like Florida's Ricky Pearsall, Western Kentucky's Malachi Corley, and North Carolina's Tez Walker are all viable prospects. Polk may not be the best with the ball after the catch, but there's a lot to like about his polish as a vertical target.

Polk has tremendous hands, vertical speed, and playmaking ability in an offense that attacked downfield as often as possible. While Polk benefitted from playing next to Rome Odunze, his skillset could turn him into a 1,000-yard receiver if he connects with Jackson early.

Round 3, Pick 93: Gabriel Murphy, EDGE, UCLA

The Ravens need more edge depth with or without Jadeveon Clowney coming back to town, as it seems unwise to immediately place David Ojabo into such a prominent role after injuries have limited his pro effectiveness. While first-rounder Laiatu Latu got all the shine, Murphy was a premium athlete and speed rusher on the outside.

Murphy has tremendous explosion off the snap, sub-4.7 speed in the 40-yard dash, and surprising technique. While he might be a bit more situational than someone like Latu due to average run defense, the Ravens clearly love pure athletes off the edge (see Odafe Oweh), and that could attract them to Murphy.
