Baltimore Ravens Mock Draft Roundup 6.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2022 NFL Draft, we will update our Baltimore Ravens Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Baltimore Ravens from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Ravens:

SI - Kevin Hanson (4/1)

14. George Karlaftis, EDGE, Purdue

Karlaftis often faced double or even triple teams at Purdue, but he wins with power, heavy hands, a quick first step and a relentless motor. At 275 pounds, the true junior has inside-outside versatility and ran a 4.71 40-yard dash at Purdue's pro day this week.

CBS Sports - Kyle Stackpole (4/1)

14. Trent McDuffie, CB, Washington

McDuffie's biggest knock is that he's 5-foot-11 and has sub-30 inch arms, but aside from that he's rock solid. He's scheme versatile, position versatile, a great athlete, instinctual, physical and a stout tackler. He would thrive in the Ravens secondary playing alongside the elite trio of Marlon Humphrey, Marcus Peters and Marcus Williams.

Yahoo! Sports - Eric Edholm (3/31)

14. Charles Cross, OT, Mississippi State

I think the trade-down option is an attractive one to them, and as long as only one (or fewer) QB is off the board, it's in play. A bit lower, maybe the pick would be Tyler Linderbaum. I also considered Jordan Davis, corner and pass rusher here. But Cross could be the left tackle in time if Ronnie Stanley's injuries keep mounting.

ESPN - Mike Tannenbaum (3/30)

14. Tyler Linderbaum, IOL, Iowa

This one is pretty easy. Bradley Bozeman left Baltimore to sign in Carolina, and Linderbaum is a Day 1 starter at center for a team that needs to open running lanes for running back J.K. Dobbins and quarterback Lamar Jackson.

NFL.com - Bucky Brooks (3/29)

14. Trent McDuffie, CB, Washington

As a man-heavy team, the Ravens cannot resist adding a talented cover corner with outstanding instincts and skills.

The Draft Network - Brentley Weissman (3/28)

14. Jordan Davis, IDL, Georgia

With the loss of free agents Calais Campbell and Brandon Williams, the Ravens have a massive hole along the inside of their defensive line. Who better to fill that massive hole than the massive Jordan Davis? Davis' combine performance will go down as one of the best in recent memory and the fact that he showed he could move that well at the size will surely help ease concerns of him being a potential two-down-only player.

The Athletic - Beat Writer Mock (3/28)

14. Jermaine Johnson, EDGE, Florida State

Jeff Zrebiec: Odafe Oweh was an exception last year, but the Ravens typically put a lot of emphasis on production when it comes to evaluating college pass rushers. After transferring from Georgia, Johnson led the ACC in sacks (11.5) and tackles for loss (17.5) in his final college season, and he also was dominant at the Senior Bowl, an event Ravens officials put a lot of stock in.

The Ravens didn't land an elite pass rusher in free agency with Za'Darius Smith backing out of a verbal agreement, and that's arguably their biggest need. Johnson not only should bring some juice off the edge, but he's touted as a solid edge setter against the run. It would have been nice to get an offensive tackle or a cornerback here, but there was no obvious fit. Johnson is well more than a consolation prize.

Brugler: It seems to happen every year: Good players fall to the Ravens in the draft. And that is the case in this scenario with Johnson landing in Baltimore. Equally talented versus the run and as a pass rusher, he is instinctive, ferocious and sound with the athleticism to give blockers trouble. It might be tempting to draft Johnson's former Georgia teammate Jordan Davis, but Johnson would be the easy pick for Baltimore if he's still available.

PFF - Austin Gayle (3/28)

14. George Karlaftis, EDGE, Purdue

A former Greek national water polo player, Karlaftis possesses rare lower-body strength that shows up in his pass-rushing ability and run defense consistently. There are also zero question marks surrounding his work ethic and motor, as Purdue head coach Jeff Brohm has called out multiple times that there wasn't a player who worked harder or as consistently as Karlaftis with the Boilermakers. He earned a career-high 87.2 PFF grade and 90.7 pass-rushing grade as a junior in 2021.
