Baltimore Ravens 2024 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 1.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2024 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:

EDSFootball - Kevin Hanson (5/9)

26. Maason Smith, IDL, LSU

Smith missed nearly all of 2022 with a torn ACL, and he missed three games as a true freshman as well. When healthy, the former five-star recruit is an athletic freak (12th on Bruce Feldman's 2022 College Football Freaks' List). As a freshman, he had five TFLs and four sacks in nine games.

CBS Sports - Josh Edwards (5/8)

25. Bralen Trice, EDGE, Washington

The Ravens have added a few pass rushers over the past two years but they have left a lot to be desired. They take another swing in an effort to correct the position.

ESPN - Todd McShay (5/4)

24. Chop Robinson, EDGE, Penn State

A transfer from Maryland, Robinson had a good 2022 season despite no sack production. He didn't start a game for the Nittany Lions but still accumulated 13.5 tackles for loss and 26 pressures. Baltimore needs more playmaking pass-rushers, and Robinson could be a good fit. But I also think the Ravens could consider cornerbacks or defensive tackles if those holes go unfixed by next April.

The Athletic - Dane Brugler (5/2)

22. Kris Jenkins, IDL, Michigan

I gave Jenkins a second-round grade based on his 2022 tape. If he takes the next step in his development in 2023, the first round could be in range. He is quick off the ball to make plays versus the run and as a pass rusher.

CBS Sports - Ryan Wilson (5/2)

25. Kris Abrams-Draine, CB, Missouri

Abrams-Draine would've been a top-100 player for us in the '23 class but he returns to Missouri to improve his draft stock.

Fox Sports - Rob Rang (5/1)

25. Cooper DeJean, CB, Iowa

With Lamar Jackson securely in the fold, the Ravens may be shifting their attention from quarterback to cornerback, at least when it comes to scouting for 2024. The Ravens have long boasted one of the league's better secondaries and that should continue with a pro-ready cornerback like DeJean.

PFF - Max Chadwick (5/1)

24. Michael Hall Jr., IDL, Ohio State

Hall only played 266 snaps this past season as a part of Ohio State's defensive tackle rotation. He flashed on those snaps though, with an 80.3 grade and six sacks on those snaps. After losing Calais Campbell, the Ravens could use another player on the interior of their defensive line.

For the Win - Christian D'Andrea (4/30)

18. Tyleik Williams, IDL, Ohio State

Re-signing Lamar Jackson means the Ravens don't need a quarterback. But bolstering the defense is always a priority, and Williams is just the kind of line-bending, lane-destroying tackle Baltimore loves. He had five sacks in nine games as a freshman.

USA Today - Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz (4/30)

21. Donovan Jackson, IOL, Ohio State

Everything is looking rosier in Baltimore after Lamar Jackson's extension. A remade offense could get an additional boost with Donovan Jackson, whose length, footwork and strength would situate him nicely for the Ravens if he were to take over for guard Kevin Zeitler.
