Bateman has been the receiver I have banged the table for all season long for the Baltimore Ravens. His skill set not only is something much needed for the Ravens offense but it also compliments the receivers on the roster. Bateman is a receiver that won’t take the top off a defense, but will definitely have your secondary frustrated. He reminds me a lot of Davante Adams with his ability to make space between him and a defender. The idea of drafting Marquise Brown was to let him loose down field but Baltimore needs more weapons to let him get loose.
With the loss of Orlando Brown the Ravens could now address tackle or interior offensive line. Drafting someone like Leatherwood can give you both. At Alabama he was an All-American offensive tackle, but can play on the inside as well. Leatherwood gives the Ravens a back up plan if Villanueva doesn’t work out or get hurt. If that doesn’t happen he can help the interior of the offensive line and slide Bozeman to center.
I think Teven Jenkins could be the Tristan Wirfs of this draft. He dominates at right tackle and would be a great replacement for Orlando Brown. Jenkins plays right tackle for Oklahoma State and was one of the best offensive tackles in college football last season. Teven Jenkins could be too rich for the Ravens blood with the 27th pick, but he sure would be a perfect plug and play tackle for Baltimore.
Safety isn’t the biggest need on the Ravens roster, but it still is one. If someone like Jevon Holland were to fall I would not blame the Ravens for possibly trading up into the late second to grab him. Holland is a versatile defensive back that has pretty good size and ball skills. He has nine career interceptions and 10 pass break ups in his two seasons at Oregon. In a division that has pass happy teams like the Bengals and Steelers it would be wise to select someone that can come down with interceptions.
Jayson Oweh is going to be a project, but show tonight of potential. He had the most productive zero sack season you could ask for as an edge rusher. His physical attributes are off the charts, and his play style reminds me of Yannick Ngakoue. The Ravens lost two very talented edge rushers this off season and need to find someone to fill those snaps.
