Round 2, Pick 62: Patrick Paul, OT, Houston

Even with Ronnie Stanley agreeing to stay with Baltimore on a reworked deal, it would behoove the Ravens to look at the available tackles and try to find a successor. With premium physical attributes and some impressive Senior Bowl tape, Paul would certainly suffice.

Paul needs work as a run blocker, as poor pad level and some stiff-looking reps on tape limited his effectiveness in this area. If the Ravens feel confident in their ability to improve Paul in that area, he could be a quality second-round target to either fill in for Stanley or follow Morgan Moses at right tackle.

Round 4, Pick 112: Andru Phillips, CB, Kentucky

Phillips has made a name for himself by climbing up recent draft boards on the back of a very strong NFL Combine showing. On the field, Phillips looks like a player that was amost created in a lab to be an ideal sub package defensive back for the Ravens.

Phillips not only offers versatility both inside and outside, but he is a willing and able hitter in run support that flies all over the defensive backfield. Phillips can go from good to great in Baltimore if he works on becoming more effective at causing turnovers and fighting for balls in man coverage.

Round 4, Pick 129: Javon Solomon, EDGE, Troy

At 6-1 and around 245 pounds, Solomon is likely going to be stuck in a role as a situational pass rusher at the next level. While that could limit his upside, Baltimore could have use for him as a promising role player who can eventually become a perfect third-down speed rusher who can get to the quarterback.

Solomon is fresh off piling up 16 sacks during his final year with the Trojans. For a player his size, he possesses fairly passable functional strength and some quality technique. Solomon could be a Byrce Huff-esque player who becomes a star in a very situational role for the Ravens.
