2015 Ravens Mock Draft Monitor 2.0

04_MDM2_news.jpg


The combine is over and mock drafts have been updated to reflect the prospects' latest movement up and down the board. 

The Ravens have the 26th pick in the first round and there's still not much of a consensus on who they'll take.

Here's the previous MDM 1.0.

And here's the most recent roundup:

CB Marcus Peters, Washington
Junior; 6-foot-0, 190 pounds; 25 tackles, 7 passes defensed, 3 interceptions
"This is a spot where the Ravens can either look to help their own passing game by adding a wide receiver, or look to stop the opposition's by hitting a big need at cornerback. Last year, injuries played a big role in Baltimore's pass defense essentially falling apart, a reminder that depth at cornerback is crucial. I've noted before Peters has some question marks -- he was dismissed from the team at Washington this past season -- but if it's purely a question of talent, he's a potential steal at this point in the first round. He has loads of natural ability, with playmaker instincts to go with very good ball skills."

ESPN, Todd McShay

CB Marcus Peters, Washington
"Cornerback and safety have to be the priority positions for the Ravens this offseason, although they could also go with a wide receiver, running back or pass rusher at this spot depending upon how the board shakes out. Based strictly off his tape, Peters is the best all-around cornerback in the class, with a good combination of instincts, cover skills, toughness and ball skills. The reason I have him sliding this far is that he was kicked off Washington's football team this fall for repeated behavioral issues. The Ravens would have to feel comfortable with his character before drafting him, but they took a chance on a corner with similar baggage in Jimmy Smith a few years back, and Smith has fallen in line while becoming a productive player for Baltimore."* *

CB Jalen Collins, LSUJunior; 6- foot-0, 193 *pounds; 33 tackles, 1 interception, 0 passes defensed*
"I wouldn't rule out a receiver or a running back in the first round, but the way the Ravens went through cornerbacks at a near-record rate last season, giving the secondary the first-round love seems the most logical move two months-plus out from the draft."

CBS Sports, Pete Prisco

WR Devin Smith, Ohio State
Senior; 6-foot-1, 199 *pounds; 33 catches, 931 yards, 12 touchdowns*
"With Torrey Smith likely moving on, they get another Smith to become their deep speed outside."

NFL Network, Daniel Jeremiah

RB Melvin Gordon, Wisconsin
Junior; 6- foot-0, 207 *pounds; 2,587 rushing yards, 7.5 average, 29 touchdowns, 19 receptions, 153 yards, 3 touchdowns*
"Justin Forsett had an outstanding season, but he's not under contract for next season. Gordon would represent an upgrade, should Forsett depart for another squad."

NFL Network, Bucky Brooks
Posted Feb. 27
WR Dorial Green-Beckham, Missouri
Junior; 6- foot-6, 225 *pounds; 59 catches, 883 yards, 12 touchdowns*
"The Ravens have struck gold in the first round over the years by taking calculated gambles on blue-chip talents. Green-Beckham has some character concerns that need to be addressed, but he has the physical tools to be an elite receiver early in his career."

NFL Network, Charles Davis
Posted Feb. 25
RB Todd Gurley, Georgia
Junior; 6- foot-1, 236 *pounds; 911 rushing yards, 9 touchdowns, 12 catches, 57 yards*
"Without the knee injury suffered late last season, Gurley would be long gone. The Ravens can be patient due to the emergence of Justin Forsett."

SB Nation, Dan Kadar
Posted March 2
CB Jaelen Collins, LSU
"Although the Ravens have some talent in the secondary, neither Jimmy Smith nor Lardarius Webb can stay healthy. If the Ravens don't go with a running back or a Pernell McPhee replacement with this choice, a talent like Collins will be hard to pass up."
