2016: Ravens Mock Draft Monitor 2.0

Before next week's NFL Scouting Combine, it's time for another look at who the draftniks project to the Ravens.

The Ravens have the sixth-overall pick in the draft and mocks do not predict any trades.

Here are the latest mock drafts since Mock Draft Monitor 1.0:

Mel Kiper, ESPN

DE Joey Bosa, Ohio State
*Junior; 6-6, 275; 12 games, 35 tackles, 16 tackles for loss, 5 sacks, 1 interception, 1 forced fumble
*"At this point, a team that has multiple needs will find it hard to pass on Bosa, who is the best player on the board here. He comes in with the ability to immediately upgrade the pass rush, and unlike many rookies who can get after the passer, Bosa is also a dynamic run defender."

Todd McShay, ESPN

OT Ronnie Stanley, Notre Dame
*Senior; 6-foot-6, 315 pounds
*"When picking this high -- and the Ravens rarely do -- you'd ideally like to draft a priority position (QB, OT, pass rusher, CB or WR, with the order depending on team needs). Stanley benefited greatly from returning to school for his senior season, during which he showed improved strength and technique. He is a fine athlete for his long frame and would give the Ravens a long-term solution at left tackle."

DE DeForest Buckner, Oregon
*Senior; 6-7, 300; 13 games, 83 tackles; 17 tackles for loss, 10.5 sacks, 1 fumble recovery
*"The Ravens usually stick to their draft board and take the best player available. Buckner has a high ceiling and a high floor."

OT Ronnie Stanley, Notre Dame"The Ravens appear ready to move on from Eugene Monroe, a disappointment at left tackle since being acquired in a trade with Jacksonville. Scouts wish Stanley was a little nastier in the running game, but his long arms and light feet make him a quality pass blocker."

Dane Brugler, CBSSports.com

OT Ronnie Stanley, Notre Dame
"Baltimore inked Eugene Monroe to a lucrative extension, but he hasn't been able to stay healthy, making it tough for the Ravens to rely on him to start 16 games in 2016. Stanley not only adds instant depth, but gives Baltimore a long-term plan at a position of need."

Peter Schrager, FOX Sports

CB Vernon Hargreaves III, Florida
*Junior; 5-11, 199; 12 games, 33 tackles, 4 interceptions, 4 passes defensed, 1 forced fumble *
"The Ravens don't typically have top-6 picks. They'll be happy to see either Ramsey or Hargreaves III on the board. Hargreaves is a star who held two of the top wideouts in the country -- Travin Dural and Laquon Treadwell -- under 100 receiving yards this year. He lacks ideal size (5-foot-11), but has the instincts to be a star."

Chad Reuter, NFL.com

DE Joey Bosa, Ohio State
"Terrell Suggs is near the end and Courtney Upshaw is a free agent. Bosa might not be quite as explosive as Suggs once was, but he's a damn fine player who will wreak havoc and play assignment-sure."

Steve Palazzolo, Pro Football Focus

WR Laquon Treadwell, Ole Miss
Junior; 6-2, 210; 13 games, 82 receptions, 1,153 yards, 11 touchdowns
"Baltimore was depleted in the secondary the last two seasons, but Treadwell's playmaking ability is too much to pass up. He has the size to win the downfield battle against cornerbacks, and QB Joe Flacco is known for giving his receivers plenty of those opportunities. Treadwell can also make guys miss after the catch, as indicated by his 17 forced missed tackles that tied for 13th in the country."

Nate Davis, USA Today

DE DeForest Buckner, Oregon
"The Ravens could go in any number of directions, including tackle, receiver, cornerback or edge rusher. But you can bet they'll take the top player on their board, and in this scenario, that could very well mean Buckner. Buckner's ability to solidly defend the run and pass would make him a welcome addition, especially by veteran pass rushers Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil.

Dan Kadar, SB Nation

OT Ronnie Stanley, Notre Dame
"With Ramsey off the board, choosing Stanley would be a smart choice for Baltimore. He would improve an average offensive line, and likely push Eugene Monroe to the right side."

Matt Miller, Bleacher Report

OT Ronnie Stanley, Notre Dame
"The left tackle position is a big question mark for the Baltimore Ravens headed into the offseason. Eugene Monroe was paid as a top-tier starter, but he only played in six games this season. And while his replacement, Kelechi Osemele, played well in relief, he's a natural guard and a free agent. That opens the door for Ronnie Stanley at No. 6 overall. Stanley isn't a perfect left tackle prospect, but he's a high-level athlete with big upside, given his movement skills. And if he can improve the power in his punch as a pass-blocker, he could become an All-Pro-caliber player."

Jon Meoli, The Baltimore Sun
Posted Feb. 15
LB Myles Jack, UCLA
Junior; 6-1, 245; 3 games; 15 tackles, 0 sacks, 1 interception (season ended early by knee injury)
"This isn't a pick you're seeing in a lot of mock drafts, but Jack was in the conversation to be the top overall pick as a do-it-all linebacker at UCLA before a knee injury ended his last season. Jack probably could play any linebacker position for the Ravens once he's healthy, and would add an element of speed to their defense that will complement their young defensive core well."

Ben Standig, CSN Mid-Atlantic

OT Ronnie Stanley, Notre Dame
"The Ravens haven't exactly received proper bang for the many bucks they gave left tackle Eugene Monroe with a hefty extension in 2014. That's why he might not be in Charm City for 2016. Stanley would have been a top-10 selection if he entered the draft last season. Taking a wide receiver for the post-Steve Smith era works and perhaps someone like Mississippi's Laquon Treadwell emerges as a top-5 pick. Based on need and standard draft value, finding a future Terrell Suggs also makes logical sense this high."

Here are nine college prospects who pundits have projected to the Ravens in mock drafts.
