The Baltimore Ravens are going to be needing to draft a safety, and it is not too early to begin to consider who that could be.

It is no secret that this has been one of the worst seasons in Ravens franchise history. A very painful season for the fans and the players.

Crockett Gillmore was placed on injured reserve yesterday and is now the 19th Raven to do so.

It is fairly ironic with all their injuries that their biggest need is one that has been barely effected by injuries, which is safety. Will Hill was the unsung hero of the Ravens defense last season after coming off his six-game suspension and was rewarded with a contract extension. Hill has been a bit above mediocre at safety this season, but his counterpart Kendrick Lewis has been abysmal.

The Ravens signed Kendrick Lewis to a three-year deal worth $9 million, but I would be pretty shocked to see him in a Ravens uniform next season.

At this moment the Ravens have the third selection in the 2016 NFL Draft, and I don’t expect them to manage to get out of the top 10 before it’s all said and done. With that mentality, here are three safeties that I think the Ravens could draft to fill their void at safety.
