A prospect that could fit great in Baltimore.

The Ravens have four safeties currently on the roster. Their starting duo of Chuck Clark and DeShon Elliott are locked in for 2021, and the team re-signed Anthony Levine Sr. and reacquired Geno Stone in free agency. All in all, this is a formidable group.

However, to supplement a position of strength and add more versatility and depth in the secondary, the Ravens could look to add another safety in the draft....

Ravens Triple-Option Mock Draft

Three options for every draft slot

After several shrewd veteran signings in free agency, Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta has constructed the foundation for another contender. Baltimore will now enter the 2021 NFL draft requiring just a few specific pieces to overtake the elite clubs.

The obvious need is at edge defender, where the depth chart shows only three viable players at a position that relies on a heavy rotation and will likely carry at least...

Justin Houston to visit the Ravens

Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

The Baltimore Ravens came into the 2021 offseason slated to have five of their six edge rushers from 2020 hit unrestricted free agency. While they were able to re-sign Tyus Bowser and Pernell McPhee to team-friendly deals, Pro Bowlers Matthew Judon and Yannick Ngakoue signed lucrative deals elsewhere and Jihad Ward followed Joe Cullen to Jacksonville.

General Manager Eric DeCosta has yet to bring in any outside help at the position during the initial wave of...

Red zone weapon and contested catch specialist.

Earlier this offseason Baltimore Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh expressed his desire to bring in a big-bodied pass catching threat that could come via a wide receiver or tight end. Wake Forest’s Sage Surratt possesses the traits to be a weapon for Lamar Jackson in the red zone and come down with contested catches.

Surratt opted out of the 2020 season to focus on preparing for the 2021...

2021 NFL Draft Profile: OT Stone Forsythe

A day two sleeper that could prove to be a steal at a position of need.

In an unusually deep offensive tackle class, one prospect that has been flying under the radar — but is beginning to pick up some steam as the draft nears — is the University of Florida’s Stone Forsythe.

The Baltimore Ravens need to come away with at least one offensive tackle in this year’s draft, whether they oblige Orlando Brown Jr.’s trade request or not. Forsythe...

DraftKings Sportsbook places Ravens high in projected wins for 2021 season

Is it too high, or too low?

DraftKings recently released their NFL Team Futures sportsbook and with it comes the Baltimore Ravens 2021-2022 regular season win totals. The gambling website places high expectation on the Charm City franchise, with the line set at 11 regular season wins.

While the book is high on the Ravens, DraftKings Nation writer Will Kennedy is not a believer in the Ravens.

“The Ravens made their way to the AFC Divisional Round of the...

The Ravens should avoid drafting a receiver in the first round

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Other positions should be prioritized in the early rounds of the draft

As much as fans would love to see Eric DeCosta and the Ravens provide Lamar Jackson with more legitimate receiving threats, the Ravens would be wise to address the defense early and select a wide receiver in the middle rounds of the draft.

In a very deep class of wide receivers, starting options could be available in rounds 2-5. With the loss of key pass-rushers in Matthew Judon and...

2021 NFL Draft Profile: WR KJ Stepherson

Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

The 2017 Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team included Chase Claypool, Miles Boykin, and Equanimeous St. Brown, but it was actually KJ Stepherson who led the team in receiving yards per game and receiving touchdowns. Stepherson played 17 total games at Notre Dame in 2016 and 2017; he had a total of 44 receptions, 821 receiving yards, and 10 touchdowns. He also had five carries for 76 rushing yards.

At Notre Dame, he played against top-level competition. He played...

Co-Cap is coming back!

The Baltimore Ravens value special teams perhaps more than any other franchise in the entire league. On Wednesday, they agreed to bring back their unquestioned leader of the often forgotten third phase of the game for one more season in Anthony Levine Sr.

Levine’s agent announced the news on Twitter:

From a Ravens perspective

With the first wave of free agency officially complete, the focus has shifted to the next phase of the NFL offseason, the 2021 NFL draft that will begin on April 29th.

Between coronavirus opt-outs and the lack of a traditional scouting combine, evaluating the prospects available in this unique draft cycle has been a challenge. NFL front offices always arrange their individual draft boards differently and this class will likely...

As much as I’d want the cost certainty of a long-term deal Patrick Mahomes signed, I would be reluctant to go that route with Lamar just because we’ve seen over time that running quarterbacks don’t last if they continue to run, particularly at the rate Lamar has. What I expect to have happen with Lamar is he’s going to...

The Ravens deserve credit for draping an attack around Lamar Jackson that maximizes his unique gifts. Still, another offseason of opponents poring over film will further challenge an offense that had defenses “calling out our plays,” according to Jackson. The Ravens must grow more versatile, raising the possibility of doing more at wideout than...
