1. Would Keion White be a reach for the Baltimore Ravens?

There is a little bit of smoke pointing to Keion White being drafted in the first round. White was invited to the NFL draft, so the league has some idea that he is respected higher than some mock drafts do. Beyond that, the Baltimore Ravens brought White in for a visit. White has a much higher chance of being on the board when the Ravens pick.

So, the last time Nolan Smith may get picked is 22nd, and the first time that White may get picked is 22nd. White is another player who is a great fit for the Baltimore Ravens. White is 6'5", and 285 pounds. He is basically in the Pernell McPhee size of being an edge rusher, but having the size to be an interior defensive lineman.

However, some of the best work that White does is off of the ball and his ability to drop into coverage. The Baltimore Ravens could line up White with his hand down and drop him and then have Tyus Bowser rush from a standing point. This would be surprising because it would not be a cornerback or wide receiver. It also would veer off of consensus. However, it is a fit, the interest is there, and he may end up going round one.
