Baltimore Ravens 7-Round Mock Draft

Eight draft picks.

That is all that stands between the Baltimore Ravens and the end of Ozzie Newsome at the helm of the annual pro football talent selection process. Newsome's final task will be to break Baltimore out of its recent draft funk as they seek to rebuild their offense and find eventual replacements for their aging stars. Below are my projections for the Ravens full 2018 draft.

Checkout my full first round mock here

Round 1 (16). D.J. Moore, Wide Receiver, Maryland

Ozzie Newsome and company won’t let Moore get away like they did with his fellow Terp Stefon Diggs. Moore’s strong hands, size, versatility, potential and playing style give him the nod over Calvin Ridley. Baltimore spent this offseason adding solid receiving options in Michael Crabtree, John Brown and Willie Snead. But ultimately they are all Robins. Moore has the tools to be Batman.

Round 2 (52). Ian Thomas, Tight End, Indiana

Joe Flacco has been at his most elite when he has had a tight end who can take advantage of mismatches and act as a security blanket. Thomas is raw but has loads of potential. He started 2017 by embarrassing an elite Ohio State secondary and is not afraid to do the dirty work as a blocker, holding his own against the likes of Penn State.

Round 3 (83). Orlando Brown, Offensive Tackle, Oklahoma

The son of Zeus was a popular link to Baltimore in round one before his well-documented struggles at the NFL Combine. But Brown has tantalizing size at 6-foot-8 and 345 pounds. His quarterback Baker Mayfield was quick to remind everyone he did not allow a sack during the 2017 season and he also was part of a top 20 rushing attack in 2016.

Round 4 (118). Mark Walton, Running Back, Miami

The Ravens are missing a dynamic change of pace back. Walton is a big-play three-down back who can be a threat as a receiver. He would be the smooth jazz to Alex Collins's rock and roll. He has the talent to go higher but injury drops him here. This pick is classic Ozzie.

Round 5 (154) . Scott Quessenberry, Center, UCLA

Replacing Ryan Jensen is a priority and Quessenberry would be an upgrade over Matt Skura. Quessenberry has ideal size and is praised for the hand usage he displayed during his time protecting Josh Rosen.

Round 6 (190). Riley Ferguson, Quarterback, Memphis

The best quarterback in Ravens' history was a small school product with ideal physical traits and good college production. Why not use the same formula to develop his successor? With Ferguson, the emphasis is on develop.

Round 6 (215). Charvarius Ward, Cornerback, Middle Tennessee State

The Blue Raiders made noise by producing All-Pro safety Kevin Byard. Next up is Ward, a 6-foot-1 corner with 4.4 40 speed who broke up 14 passes last year.

Round 7 (238). Jake Wieneke, Wide Receiver, South Dakota State

Wieneke is a huge receiver at 6-foot-4 with the same propensity for circus catches as teammate Dallas Goedert. Wieneke shredded TCU in 2016 and would be a great locker room guy.
