2017: Mock Draft Monitor 5.0

Posted Apr 20, 2017

The draft is now one week away, and analysts are still all over the board on who is coming to Baltimore. Here's a roundup of who draftniks think the Ravens will select at pick No. 16 in the first round.

Ozzie Newsome will be on the clock in just a little over a week.

With the 2017 NFL Draft is right around the corner, here’s the latest on who the experts are projecting to Baltimore in the first round.

(For reference, take a look back at Mock Draft Monitor 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 and 4.0)

OLB Takkarist McKinley, UCLA
Junior, 6-foot-2, 250 pounds; 2016 stats: 61 tackles, 18 for loss, 10 sacks, 3 forced fumbles

“Baltimore needs pass rushers. Terrell Suggs, 34, was the only Raven to have more than five sacks last season (he had eight). McKinley is a speed rusher who could play outside linebacker in the Ravens' 3-4. He broke out in 2016 with 10 sacks and three forced fumbles for the Bruins.”

Todd McShay, ESPN

OT Cam Robinson, Alabama
Junior, 6-6, 310; 2016 stats: 15 starts at left tackle
“The Ravens spent the sixth-overall pick last year on LT Ronnie Stanley, and Robinson is a natural fit on the right side. He still needs to improve his technique, but Robinson possesses excellent length (35½-inch arms) and is an elite mauler in the running game.”

WR Mike Williams, Clemson
Senior, 6-3, 225; 2016 stats: 98 catches, 1,361 yards, 11 touchdowns
“The Ravens are in need of a rusher and top receiver. Let's give them a physical ball-winner who could become a heavily targeted favorite for Joe Flacco.”

Chad Reuter, NFL.com

OLB Takkarist McKinley, UCLA
“The Ravens' aging pass rush gets a boost from this long, strong, and relentless defender from UCLA.”

Bucky Brooks, NFL.com
Posted April 11
WR Corey Davis, Western Michigan
Senior, 6-3, 213; 2016 stats: 97 catches, 1,500 receiving yards, 19 touchdowns
“The Ravens need a WR1 to anchor the passing game after the retirement of Steve Smith.”

Rob Rang, CBS Sports
Posted April 17
WR Mike Williams, Clemson
“The Ravens need help at edge rusher and offensive tackle, as well, but General Manager Ozzie Newsome may have a hard time letting a prototypical split end like the 6-4, 218-pound Williams slip any further. His ability to box out defenders and win contested passes could make him a quick favorite for Joe Flacco, who lost similarly sure-handed receivers Steve Smith Sr. and Kamar Aiken over the offseason.”

Dane Brugler, CBS Sports
Posted April 17
WR Mike Williams, Clemson
“The Ravens have plenty of speed at receiver, but only average size. Williams has only average speed, but his body control, catch radius and overall size are where he shines”

Pete Prisco, CBS Sports
Posted April 17
WR Corey Davis, Western Michigan
“At some point, they have to get Joe Flacco more help outside. This is a player who will end up being the best receiver in this class.”

Will Brinson, CBS Sports
Posted April 17
OLB Haason Reddick, Temple
Senior, 6-1, 230; 2016 stats: 65 tackles, 22.5 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks, 1 interception, 3 forced fumbles
“The Ravens will figure out a way to deploy this freakishly athletic and extremely talented football player on defense.”

Dieter Kurtenbach, FOX Sports
Posted April 20
LB Haason Reddick, Temple
“Baltimore lands the inside linebacker and edge rusher they’re looking for with one pick. Reddick is as pliable a defensive talent as this draft will provide.”
