2016: Ravens Mock Draft Monitor 3.0


The NFL Scouting Combine is over and draftniks' boards have changed.

The Ravens have the sixth-overall pick and there's a fairly wide spread of predictions.

First, here's a look back at the picks in Mock Draft Monitor 1.0 and 2.0.

And now the latest post-combine mocks:

DE Joey Bosa, Ohio State
Junior; 6-6, 275; 12 games, 35 tackles, 16 tackles for loss, 5 sacks, 1 interception, 1 forced fumble
"The Ravens need help in the secondary, which makes the guy coming off the board at No. 9 tempting [Vernon Hargreaves], but it's hard to pass on a talent as complete as Bosa at this spot."

Todd McShay, ESPNPosted March 2
OT Ronnie Stanley, Notre Dame
Senior; 6-foot-6, 315 pounds

"Stanley didn't test off the charts at the combine, but his long arms (just over 35½ inches) and big frame (6-foot-6, 312 pounds) are what you're looking for in a left tackle prospect. The Ravens would have the luxury of easing Stanley into his role at left tackle with Eugene Monroe still under contract. Two other options the Ravens could look at here: (1) RB Ezekiel Elliott and (2) trading back. Ozzie Newsome loves to stockpile picks and a team like the Rams could be tempted to jump ahead of San Francisco and take Goff."

DE DeForest Buckner, OregonSenior; 6-7, 300; 13 games, 83 tackles; 17 tackles for loss, 10.5 sacks, 1 fumble recovery
"Buckner has a rare combination of size/agility/motor and he's built to play in the AFC North."

Charles Davis, NFL Media
Posted March 3
DE Joey Bosa, Ohio State
"The Ravens will use him to help anchor their DL. He's able to rush the passer from the edge and inside in sub or nickel packages."

Bucky Brooks, NFL Media
Posted March 2
OT Ronnie Stanley, Notre Dame
"After watching Joe Flacco falling victim to an injury, the Ravens could make fortifying the front line a top priority."

Lance Zierlein, NFL Media

OT Ronnie Stanley, Notre Dame
"Stanley is one of the premier pass protectors in this draft and has the plug-and-play talent that teams will covet on the left side."

Nate Davis, USA Today
Posted March 4
CB Vernon Hargreaves III, Florida
Junior; 5-11, 199; 12 games, 33 tackles, 4 interceptions, 4 passes defensed, 1 forced fumble 
"Depending how free agency plays out, the O-line could become a priority. But the secondary has been vulnerable in a division where the football flies, and Baltimore's six interceptions in 2015 were a league low. Hargreaves is athletic yet tough and can cover outside or in the slot. He could hasten Lardarius Webb's move to safety."

Dane Brugler, CBS Sports

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."

Rob Rang, CBS Sports

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."

Dan Kadar, SB Nation
Posted Feb. 29
DE Joey Bosa, Ohio State
"It seems like some of the luster is off Bosa following the combine because of an ordinary 40-yard dash. Don't let that fool you, though, Bosa is still the best player in this year's draft. If he happens to slide, this should be as far as he goes."

Steve Palazzolo, Pro Football Focus
Posted March 2
OT Laremy Tunsil, Ole MissJunior; 6-5, 305
"Tunsil is an option for a number of teams slotted above, but they made the right choices in going with defensive playmakers. He'll slot in nicely for Baltimore who is expected to release starting left tackle, Eugene Monroe, shortly. Tunsil was limited to only six games, but he handled a great slate of pass rushers (only five pressures on 235 pass blocking attempts) while showing his explosiveness in the run game at plus-12.1."

Eric Edholm, Yahoo! Sports
Posted March 3
DE Joey Bosa, Ohio State
"The last time GM Ozzie Newsome drafted in the top 10, he took a pass rusher with a slower-than-expected 40-yard dash. It worked out well with Terrell Suggs, and it would do the same with Bosa."

Chris Burke, Sports Illustrated
Posted March 2
OT Ronnie Stanley, Notre Dame
"Even with a run on defensive players occurring in picks 1–5, the Ravens wouldn't mind this board. They get their pick between Stanley, Vernon Hargreaves, Mackenzie Alexander and every pass rusher not named Bosa. Stanley just happens to hit both the "best player available" and "position of need" bullets. Kelechi Osemele is an impending free agent, and Eugene Monroe can't stay healthy."

LB Myles Jack, UCLAJunior; 6-1, 245; 3 games; 15 tackles, 0 sacks, 1 interception (season ended early by knee injury)
"Jack, even after losing part of his final collegiate season to a knee injury, might not last until the Ravens' pick at No. 6. If he does, the do-it-all linebacker could be the explosive athlete the defense has been lacking. He can even be a long-term complement to C.J. Mosley at inside linebacker if that's where the team deploys him, or he can play outside and bolster an aging pass rush."
