Mock Draft Monitor 3.0

Posted Mar 4, 2014

Here’s a roundup of who the draftniks think the Ravens will select in the first round.


The pre-draft process is in high gear now that scouts around the league got a good look at the country’s top prospects during the NFL Scouting Combine last week in Indianapolis.

Teams will now review their assessments, and then re-shape their draft boards based on what they saw at the combine. Pundits are also updating their projections, and some of the pass catches are on the rise. That could mean they are gone before the Ravens are on the clock.

Here is the most recent roundup of mock drafts based on who the experts think the Ravens will take at No. 17:

OT Taylor Lewan, Michigan
Senior, 6-foot-7, 309 pounds
“Lewan’s combine effort could make it tough to let him linger on the board this long. As mentioned above, however, a few players are bound to tumble. Assuming the Ravens can retain either Eugene Monroe or Michael Oher (preferably the former), drafting Lewan would lock up their tackle spots. Oh, and that nasty streak Lewan has been criticized for in the past? Seems to fit the Ravens’ mold, no?”

Sports Illustrated, Don Banks

TE Eric Ebron, North Carolina
Junior; 6-foot-4, 231 pounds; 62 catches, 973 yards, 3 touchdowns
“Come May, once his game gets completely dissected in the long slog that is the draft scouting season, it might be laughable to think that the draft's best tight end was ever going to last all the way to the Ravens at No. 17. But Ebron is exactly the type of downfield target Baltimore needs. … USC receiver Marqise Lee is the other obvious available first-round upgrade for the Ravens passing game, and you can't rule out the selection of an offensive tackle, such as Alabama's Cyrus Kouandjio, with both Michael Oher and Eugene Monroe eligible for free agency.”

OT Taylor Lewan, Michigan
“The Ravens, as thin as any team outside the Jets at wide receiver, would have this pick's envelope in to Commissioner Goodell before the clock even starts if Mike Evans is still on the board. In this scenario, he’s not. So they go with Lewan, the accomplished offensive tackle who handled the competition in the loaded Big Ten.”

WR Marqise Lee, USC
Junior; 6-0, 195; 57 catches, 791 yards, 4 touchdowns
“Ozzie Newsome has made a career out of landing falling stars on draft day and in Lee he could find another one. Lee struggled with nagging leg injuries in 2013 but looked like a future top 10 pick in two previous dominating seasons in the Pac-12.”

CBSSports.com, Dane Brugler

WR Mike Evans, Texas A&M
Redshirt sophomore, 6-5, 225; 69 catches, 1,394 yards, 12 touchdowns
“The Ravens have deep threats at receiver with Torrey Smith, Jacoby Jones and Marlon Brown, but could use a larger, more physical talent for Joe Flacco to target. Evans won't run a blazing 40-yard dash but he's fast enough with the aggressive nature to win contested throws and be a threat after the catch.”

CBSSports.com, Pat Kirwan

ILB C.J. Mosley, Alabama
Senior; 6-2, 232 pounds; 108 tackles, 1 forced fumble, 5 passes defensed
“The Ravens were built around great linebacker play and C.J. could be a long-term answer. If the Ravens take a wide receiver or an offensive tackle in this spot it wouldn't surprise me.”

CBSSports.com, Pete Prisco
Posted Feb. 26
WR Marqise Lee, USC
“They need more help outside for Joe Flacco. Lee would be a nice complement to Torrey Smith.”

CBSSports.com, Will Brinson
Posted Feb. 28
ILB C.J. Mosley, Alabama
“A lot of what happens at this spot depends on the contract situations of Dennis Pitta and Eugene Monroe. While Baltimore needs help on offense Ozzie Newsome is still going to take the best player available.”

NFL.com, Daniel Jeremiah
Posted Feb. 27
TE Eric Ebron, North Carolina
“Ebron would flourish in Gary Kubiak’s system.”

NFL.com, Charles Davis
Posted Feb. 27
S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Alabama
Junior; 6-1, 208; 37 tackles, 5 interceptions, 9 passes defensed, 1 forced fumble
“Performed well at the combine. Rangy, center fielder who is better than advertised in man coverage.”

NFL.com, Bucky Brooks
Posted Feb. 21
WR Mike Evans, Texas A&M
“The loss of Anquan Boldin robbed Joe Flacco of a big-bodied receiver to target in the red zone. Evans is a jump ball specialist with the length and athleticism to dominate smaller defenders on the perimeter.”
