Round 6, Pick 218: Ainias Smith, WR/RB, Texas A&M

Smith might lack a defined role on offense, as he appears to be half a wide receiver and half a running back melded into one player. Todd Monken is a creative coordinator, and getting him a player with Smith's natural talent this late in the draft could be a perfect situation for the Ravens.

Injuries and some size concerns (5-9, 190 pounds) that could make his success in the pros overly dependent on the scheme he goes to will limit Smith's stock. Even with those concerns, it would be one of the biggest steals of Day 3 if the Ravens are able to end up breaking his fall.

Round 7, Pick 228: Frank Crum, OT, Wyoming

Crum's testing numbers will help him stand out in the annual monsoon of non-Power 5 linemen that dominate their level of competition. If the Ravens want to double-dip at tackle this cycle, athleticism and the ability to get to the second level could be what sets players like Crum apart.

Crum will require patience, as he lacks technical polish and will have the jump from Mountain West pass rushers to a division with Myles Garrett and TJ Watt. With the tools he has put on display, however, he should get a longer leash than most draft picks in this range.

Round 7, Pick 250: Steele Chambers, LB, Ohio State

The Ravens have a fairly robust plan to replace Patrick Queen, as Trenton Simpson will likely be elevated to the starting lineup. At this point in the draft, the Ravens can take a flier on a possible special teams ace who has enough solid tape as a linebacker to warrant some attention.

Chambers isn't a great tackler or overly strong player, but he has shown fairly solid speed in quick bursts and well above-average in coverage. He is more than worth a dice roll this late in the draft, especially in a solid defensive culture like the one Baltimore has.
