There weren’t many teams that were struck as much by the injury bug in 2021 as the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens hope a healthy Lamar Jackson, along with some timely selections, can get them back to the playoffs in 2022.
Baltimore has ten selections in the 2022 NFL Draft. They have four in the first 100 selections and nine in the first 141.
Let’s see how it plays out.
BALTIMORE RAVENS: 7-ROUND MOCK DRAFT
1-14: Tyler Linderbaum, C, Iowa
Linderbaum is one of the best offensive linemen in this class. Some will dock him for his short arms but no one can question his blocking ability. Linderbaum would be a plug-and-play starter.
2-45: Travis Jones, DL, UConn
Travis Jones has insane power and has pass-rush upside. He is incredibly athletic for a man of his size. I also wouldn’t be surprised if he was drafted higher than this. The Ravens need capable bodies on their defensive interior and Jones is much more than that.
3-76: Josh Jobe, CB, Alabama
Jobe struggled with injuries and consistency in 2021. His 2020 tape was good and the Ravens can maybe afford a gamble at the corner position.
3-100: Max Mitchell, OT, Louisiana
I feel like this would be a reach but the consensus is much higher on Mitchell than I am. However, Mitchell could be a swing tackle for Baltimore in 2022 and replace Morgan Moses in 2023.
THE REST OF THE DRAFT
4-110: Cole Turner, TE, Nevada
4-119: Jesse Luketa, EDGE, Penn State
4-128: Otito Ogbonnia, DL, UCLA
4-139: Zach Tom, C, Wake Forest
4-141: Isaiah Thomas, EDGE, Oklahoma
6-196: Ty Fryfogle, WR, Indiana
