Baltimore Ravens 2022 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 7.0

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:

ESPN - Mel Kiper (4/13)

14. Trent McDuffie, CB, Washington

The Ravens could go in several directions here, including offensive tackle (will Ronnie Stanley ever be the same again?) and defensive end (Calais Campbell is back, but he's 35). When I look at this depth chart, though, I see corner depth as an issue. McDuffie has the versatility to play outside and in the slot, and he also will wrap up and bring down ball carriers in the run game. He's physical.

The Draft Network - Keith Sanchez (4/13)

14. Derek Stingley Jr., CB, LSU

The Ravens do it again. At the 14th pick, they are able to select arguably the best corner in this draft and fill an immediate need for them.

The Ravens' cornerback room is aging and is also injured, so the addition of a player like Derek Stingley Jr. will help revitalize that room. If he reaches his potential, the Ravens have a Pro Bowl-caliber player that they were able to get at pick 14. - Lance Zierlein (4/12)

14. George Karlaftis, EDGE, Purdue

Karlaftis is a rugged edge defender who can play with a hand down or standing up. He'd fit the Ravens' culture and has underrated power rushing talent.

CBS Sports - Will Brinson (4/12)

TRADE - 22. Tyler Linderbaum, IOL, Iowa

Bradley Bozeman bounced to Carolina in the offseason leaving a hole at center for Baltimore, and they get some picks out of the exchange as well.

PFF - Anthony Treash (4/11)

14. Ikem Ekwonu, OT, North Carolina State

Baltimore might not "need" an offensive tackle, but the thought of taking Ikem Ekwonu and kicking him inside to guard is too good to ignore.

From a run-blocking standpoint, Ekwonu seems destined to be an impactful NFL lineman right away and would add to a potent Baltimore rushing attack. He was one of the nastiest run-blockers of the PFF College era and boasted a 93.8 run-blocking grade for the 2021 season -- the highest mark in the Power Five.

Ekwonu's pass sets are still a concern, and it's likely going to take some time for him to be a quality pass-protector in the NFL ranks, though he made strides in that department this past season by raising his pass-blocking grade year-over-year from 55.3 to 78.3.

ESPN - Jordan Reid (4/11)

14. Jermaine Johnson, EDGE, Florida State

After getting five sacks and three forced fumbles from rookie Odafe Oweh, their first-round pick last year, the Ravens could try to pair him with another edge rusher in Johnson.

He is a ready-made run defender as well as a mature pass-rusher. Johnson is firm at the point of attack and has a determined mentality throughout games and a playing style that would fit well in Baltimore.

CBS Sports - Ryan Wilson (4/11)

14. Jermaine Johnson, EDGE, Florida State

After transferring from Georgia, Johnson has a fantastic season at Florida State. And he told us at the combine that he felt like he had something to prove going from the SEC to the ACC. He did that and then some, then he dominated the Senior Bowl, and followed that up with an electric workout in Indy. The Ravens drafted Odafe Oweh a year ago and he'll get a running mate with Johnson here.
