The 2018 NFL Draft is here and the Ravens have a lot of decisions to make. Here are all the Ravens picks in this year’s draft.
The 2018 NFL Draft is finally here, and after all the mock drafts, analysis, and predictions, we’ll finally get to see who the Baltimore Ravens will be drafting.
The Ravens certainly have a number of needs to address in this year’s NFL Draft. After losing wide receivers Mike Wallace and Michael Campanaro to free agency and releasing both Jeremy Maclin and passing-down running back Danny Woodhead, it’s clear the team’s offense needs work.
However, with some quality offseason moves, the Ravens may have less to address in this year’s NFL Draft than they did at the beginning of the offseason.
This offseason, the team signed a number of wide receivers, most notably former Oakland Raiders receiver Michael Crabtree, as well as former New Orleans Saints receiver Willie Snead, former Arizona Cardinals receiver John Brown, and former CFL star DeVier Posey.
The team still has former first-round pick Breshad Perriman on the roster, though it looks like he’s going to get even less playing time than he did last year with the new addition at receiver. They also have Chris Moore and Quincy Adeboyejo.
Last season also saw the rise of running back Alex Collins as one of the brightest budding stars in the NFL at the running back position. This season, Collins will look to cement himself as potentially the Ravens’ franchise starting running back.
Perhaps the Ravens’ biggest need in this year’s NFL Draft will be at the tight end and offensive line position. Tight end Benjamin Watson left the team and the Ravens were unable to sign any of the big-name tight end free agents like Jimmy Graham or Eric Ebron, leaving Nick Boyle as their likely starter.
The team also lost center Ryan Jensen to free agency, one of the better players on that line. It’s likely that the team will address the line needs in the NFL Draft this year.
There’s plenty of things the Ravens need, including depth at the linebacker position and in the secondary, as well as some more depth at the wide receiver position and even potentially a new quarterback.
