Baltimore Ravens 2023 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 2.0

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:

CBS Sports - Wilson (9/7)

21. Tyree Wilson, EDGE, Texas Tech

Baltimore had Odafe Oweh and Justin Houston and not much else in terms of pure pass rushers. The defense, which is much healthier than a season ago, will be better, but there's room on the roster for more edge rushers, and Wilson would make sense at this point in the round.

The Draft Network - Crabbs (9/5)

23. Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU

Quentin Johnston was a pick I made for the Ravens in my previous NFL mock draft and I'll be doing it again, thank you very much. Vertical receiving ability in a bigger frame to play on the outside is the perfect mix to layer into the Ravens' passing attack as they attempt to find the right balance of weapons to place around QB Lamar Jackson—you know, assuming he's going to be there long-term. To be continued...

Sporting News - Iyer (9/3)

25. Jaelyn Duncan, OT, Maryland

The Ravens can look around the corner to College Park for a big developmental tackle who could replace oft-injured Ronnie Stanley soon opposite new right tackle Morgan Moses. Duncan's size, power and quickness make sense in their scheme.

SI - Hanson (8/31)

23. Jordan Addison, WR, USC

Addison posted elite production (100/1,593/17) in 2021 at Pitt. With Kenny Pickett off to the NFL, the Biletnikoff Award–winning wideout transferred to USC to play with Caleb Williams in Lincoln Riley's offense. While he's not the biggest or strongest receiver, Addison uses his quickness, fluidity and savvy route running to make plays at all three levels.

The Athletic - Baumgardner/Tice (8/31)

25. Clark Phillips III, CB, Utah

It's funny how these things shake out, even in a hypothetical sense, because Phillips feels like a Baltimore Raven all the way. The Ravens will surely have an eye on cornerbacks next offseason with Marcus Peters entering the final year of his deal. A tough corner (albeit an undersized one), Phillips' best trait is his fearlessness in coverage. He's a Raven if there ever were one.

The Draft Network - Weissman (8/29)

24. Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU

It feels like the Ravens have needed a No. 1 receiver for the past decade. Maybe they do have their guy in Rashod Bateman, but only time will tell. Even if Bateman takes that next step, he will still need a running mate.

TCU's Quentin Johnston is the perfect player to pair next to Bateman as he is a big-bodied pass-catcher who excels on vertical routes down the field as well as in contested situations. With Johnston winning over the top and Bateman doing his work in the shallow and intermediate areas of the field, the Ravens will finally have a dangerous receiver duo.

Pro Football Network - Fragozza (8/27)

22. Bryan Bresee, IDL, Clemson

One look at Bryan Bresee, and you see why he was the No. 1 overall recruit in the 2020 cycle. He's a well-proportioned 6'5" and 300+ pounds, looking like a massive defensive end. Yet, Bresee can prevail from any position along the front four. An ACL tear robbed him of the final games in 2021, but a return to form in 2022 would cement Bresee's Day 1 billing.

ESPN - Reid (8/25)

19. Jordan Addison, WR, USC

Addison would be an obvious target for the Ravens, who have unproven options that lack high-end upside on the perimeter. He is great at gaining separation and is a true route technician, able to create throwing lanes for quarterbacks. Now in a Lincoln Riley-led offense that has produced first-round receivers like Marquise Brown and CeeDee Lamb, Addison could be in store for an even bigger season. And that's saying something since he had 100 catches for 1,593 yards and 17 touchdowns at Pitt in 2021.
