2016: Second Round Mock Draft Monitor


A couple of pundits (by far the minority) recently predicted the Ravens would take Notre Dame left tackle Ronnie Stanley with pick No. 6 Thursday night.

Well, the draftniks are back Friday predicting how they think Round 2 will play out.

Here are their projections for the Ravens at No. 36:

Steve Muench and Kevin Weidl, ESPN DE Jonathan Bullard, Florida
Senior; 6-foot-3, 285 pounds; 63 tackles, 18 tackles for loss, 6.5 sacks
"The team cut ties with Chris Canty this offseason and Brandon Williams enters a contract year. Carl Davis, a 2015 third-rounder, was ineffective in his rookie season, and Bullard plays with a physical and relentless edge that the Ravens covet at the position."

Lance Zierlein, NFL Media OLB/DE Noah Spence, Eastern Kentucky
*Senior; 6 -2, 251; 22.5 tackles for loss, 13.5 sacks
*"Ravens address their edge concerns with a boom-or-bust talent."

Nate Davis, USA Today LB Myles Jack, UCLA
Junior; 6-1, 245; 3 games; 15 tackles, 0 sacks, 1 interception (season ended early by knee injury)
"His unfortunate free fall could end here. GM Ozzie Newsome may not be able to bypass the talent and value Jack represents at this point, given his ability should have dictated a selection at least 30 spots sooner. But what a great destination this would be for Jack, even if his career does turn out to be abbreviated by his troublesome knee. Still, he could step into a starting role for a franchise that preaches defense and would allow him to immediately compete for Super Bowls."

Projected trade back to No. 49

Dan Kadar, SB Nation OLB/DE Noah Spence, Eastern Kentucky"With the age of Baltimore's top pass rushers Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil, the Ravens could look to get young and bring in a pass rusher like Spence."

Chris Burke, Sports Illustrated
OLB Shilique Calhoun, Michigan State
Senior; 6-4, 251; 49 tackles, 15 tackles for loss, 10.5 sacks

Dane Brugler, CBS Sports CB Mackensie Alexander, ClemsonSophomore; 5-11, 195; 13 games, 23 tackles, 0 interceptions, 5 passes defensed
"With zero career interceptions, Alexander fell out of the first round, but he won't have to wait very long on Day Two."

Justis Mosqueda, Bleacher Report
ILB Reggie Ragland, Alabama
Senior; 6-1, 247; 97 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss, 6 passes defensed
"Reggie Ragland was considered by some to be the best healthy off-the-ball linebacker in this draft class. Unfortunately, a report of an enlarged aorta, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, via Chase Goodbread of NFL.com, forced him out of the first round. … The last time an Alabama linebacker fell, Baltimore Ravens General Manager Ozzie Newsome, a former Crimson Tide player, stole C.J. Mosley. We're in a position to see history repeat itself."
