10 Ravens Second-Round Options


The Ravens got a speedy, big-bodied wide receiver in the first round.

Now they could address some of their defensive needs, or perhaps arguably their largest need of tight end, in the second round. And there are a number of quality options that may be ripe for plucking.

Baltimore has done well in the second round in recent years, grabbing defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan in 2014, guard Kelechi Osemele in 2012 and wide receiver Torrey Smith in 2011.

Here are 10 possibilities for the Ravens with pick No. 58:

TE Maxx Williams, Minnesota
Sophomore; 6-foot-4, 254 pounds; 36 receptions, 569 yards, 8 touchdowns
The consensus top tight end in the draft is a big-bodied chain mover who can also stretch the field down the seam. He isn't the fleetest of foot, but he creates separation with his route-running and big frame. Williams is also one of the best blocking tight ends in the class. He could immediately help, but Baltimore may have to trade up to grab him.

TE/WR Devin Funchess, Michigan
Junior; 6-foot-5, 230 pounds; 62 receptions, 733 yards, 4 touchdowns
Funchess is a hybrid player who began his college career at tight end and switched to receiver for his junior year. His disappointing 40-yard dash time of 4.5 seconds has him now more considered a pass-catching tight end. He doesn't offer as much as a blocker, but he would be another weapon for quarterback Joe Flacco.

TE Clive Walford, Miami
Senior; 6-foot-4, 263 pounds; 44 catches, 676 yards, 7 touchdowns
Walford is a big-bodied receiving tight end who really stood out at the Senior Bowl. He was giving linebackers fits in coverage, especially in the red zone. Walford has the speed to challenge the middle of the field.

CB Jalen Collins, LSU
Junior; 6-foot-2, 198 pounds; 38 tackles, 1 interception
Collins is light on experience with just 12 college starts, and there's some cleaning up of fundamentals that needs to happen. But he has prototypical size and athleticism for the position.

CB P.J. Williams, Florida StateJunior; 6-foot-0, 196 pounds; 74 tackles, 1 sack, 1 interception, 10 passes defensed
The Ravens took two Seminole defenders last year with Jernigan and safety Terrence Brooks. Williams comes from the same lineage. He's an aggressive, polished player who was seen as a possible first-round pick before a recent DUI, of which he has since been cleared of.

CB Ronald Darby, Florida State
Junior; 5-foot-11, 195 pounds; 43 tackles, 4 passes defensed
Darby is a local prospect out of Oxon Hill, Md., who is considered a bit more raw. While he hasn't shown much in the way of playmaking with two career interceptions, he can keep up with any receiver. Darby is a world-class sprinter who won medals in the 2011 World Youth Championships.

CB Quinten Rollins, Miami (Ohio)Senior; 6-foot-0, 203 pounds; 72 tackles, 7 interceptions, 9 passes defensed
Rollins is a converted basketball point guard who switched to football for just one year and became the MAC Defensive Player of the Year. He has tremendous ball skills and athleticism. Rollins is still a bit raw considering he's new to the sport, but has the potential to be one of the draft's top corners.

OLB Eli Harold, Virginia
Junior; 6-foot-4, 250 pounds; 54 tackles, 14.5 tackles for loss, 7 sacks, 1 interception
Harold is a highly active pass rusher with a strong motor. He's explosive off the snap and has surprising strength for his thinner frame. He has the potential to be a standout pass rusher and strong edge setter.

OG A.J. Cann, South Carolina
Senior; 6-foot-4, 311 pounds
With Marshal Yanda and Kelechi Osemele both set to be free agents after next season, the Ravens could look for a replacement in this year's draft. Cann doesn't have massive size, but he overcomes it with athleticism. He was a four-year starter who was a consistent leader. He's been compared to Ben Grubbs, who the Ravens drafted in the first round in 2007.

RB Tevin Coleman, Indiana
*Junior; 6-foot-1, 210 pounds; 270 rushes, 2,036 yards, 15 touchdowns; 25 receptions, 141 yards
*Coleman is a big-time playmaker with speed, just like the Ravens' first-round pick. He ran the 40-yard dash in a blazing 4.35 seconds. Coleman had huge college production and finished seventh in Heisman voting. He's coming off toe surgery.
