2017: Ravens Mock Draft Monitor 3.0


General managers, coaches, scouts and media analysts all had a chance to see the country's top prospects compete at the NFL's Scouting Combine a couple weeks ago.

The combine always creates some movement on draft boards, and free agency has also altered every team's roster. To keep up with the changes, the experts have released a new round of mock drafts.

 For reference, here's a look back at Mock Draft Monitor 1.0 and 2.0.

Todd McShay, ESPNPosted March 15
WR John Ross, WashingtonRedshirt junior, 5-foot-11, 190 pounds; 2016 stats:  81 catches, 1,150 yards, 17 touchdowns, eight carries, 102 yards, 1 touchdown

"If the Ravens opt to take a second first-round wide receiver in three years, they'd have a tough decision between the electric speed of Ross and the size/jump-ball ability of Mike Williams. Ross' tape shows his 4.22 40 is no fluke, and his savvy route-running ability and reliable hands make him a great all-around prospect."

Daniel Jeremiah, NFL Network
Posted March 13 OLB Charles Harris, Missouri
Junior, 6-3, 255; 2016 stats:  61 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, 9 sacks, 2 forced fumbles

"Harris is a very productive edge rusher who is plenty athletic enough to drop in coverage if needed."

Charley Casserly, NFL NetworkPosted March 7
WR John Ross, Washington

"Joe Flacco gets much-needed speed at receiver."

Rob Rang, CBS SportsPosted March 13
S Jabrill Peppers, MichiganJunior, 6-1, 205; 2016 stats: 46 tackles, 3 sacks, 1 interception, 1 pass defensed

"With starting safety Matt Elam a pending free agent and Eric Weddle poised to enter his 11th NFL season, the Ravens may very well be looking for help in the secondary in the 2017 draft. Peppers starred as a linebacker in 2016 but possesses the agility and speed to handle coverage."

Dane Brugler, CBS SportsPosted March 13
WR Mike Williams, ClemsonSenior, 6-3, 225; 2016 stats: 98 catches, 1,361 yards, 11 touchdowns

"The Ravens have plenty of speed at receiver, but only average size. Williams has only average speed, but his body control, catch radius and overall size are where he shines."

Pete Prisco, CBS SportsPosted March 7
WR Mike Williams, Clemson

"They have to get more weapons for Joe Flacco. With Steve Smith retiring, it makes sense."

Will Brinson, CBS SportsPosted March 7 OLB Takkarist McKinley, UCLAJunior, 6-2, 250; 2016 stats: 61 tackles, 18 for loss, 10 sacks, 3 forced fumbles

"The Ravens need pass-rushing youth and are in a bit of retool on defense anyway. McKinley's a versatile athlete with a ton of upside."

Steve Palazzolo, Pro Football FocusPosted March 14
OLB Carl Lawson, Auburn*Junior, 6-22, 261; 2016 stats: 30 tackles, 14 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks, 1 forced fumble *

"Finding pass-rushers is still a priority for the Ravens, and Lawson is coming off a 2016 season in which he finally showed what he's capable of when healthy. He recorded the fifth-best pass-rushing grade in the nation with his nine sacks, 13 QB hits, and 45 hurries on 364 rushes, and can step right in as a designated rusher as he develops as a run defender after ranking 161st in the country last season."

Brent Sobleski, Bleacher ReportPosted March 13
OLB Derek Barnett, Tennessee*Junior, 6-5, 259; 2016 stats: 56 tackles, 19 tackles for loss, 13 sacks, 1 interception, 2 forced fumbles *

"Production matters. Derek Barnett's dominant career at Tennessee cannot be completely dismissed because he's not a premium athlete in the same vein as Texas A&M's Myles Garrett or Stanford's Solomon Thomas.  Even so, Barnett's workout at the NFL combine wasn't a disappointment. The 6'3", 259-pound defensive end posted a 4.88-second 40-yard dash, 31-inch vertical and 9'9" broad jump. His most impressive number came in the three-cone drill, though. Barnett's 6.96-second effort ranked fifth among defensive linemen."
