Ravens draft picks 2021: All of Baltimore’s selections, NFL draft results, team order

Mike Florio and Chris Simms dive into the most important draft need for every team in the AFC North ahead of the 2021 NFL Draft.

The 2020 Ravens were among the teams hardest hit by COVID-19 but still earned a playoff berth at 11-5. Lamar Jackson finally got his playoff win with a 20-13 comeback victory over the Titans before losing to the Bills 17-3 in the Divisional Round.

The Ravens will now have nine picks in the 2021 NFL Draft after trading Orlando Brown the Chiefs in exchange for Kansas City’s first, third and fourth-round picks this year. Along with Brown, Baltimore sent a 2021 second-round pick and a 2022 sixth-round pick to the Chiefs.

Despite getting that playoff win, Jackson, the 2019 league MVP, struggled in 2020, emphasizing the need to surround him with additional skill players and offensive options. Baltimore addedSammy Watkinsbut could target additional wide receiver talent in the first round to help diversify the offense (the Ravens led the league in rushing last season but finished last in passing yards).

Defensive line/linebacker will likely also be a focus for the Ravens in this draft. Defensive end Yannick Ngakouesigned a two-year deal with the Raiders in March and edge rusherMatthew Judondeparted for the Patriots for a reported four-year, $54.5 million deal. Defensive end Jihad Wardis also gone after signing with the Jaguars in March.

Another potential defensive priority is at safety: Baltimore cut former Seahawk Earl Thomasduring last season’s training camp, citing conduct violations. The duo of Chuck Clark and DeShon Elliott had a strong season in 2020 but leave room for improvement in coverage. TCU’s Trevon Moehrigis one of the top safeties in the draft class and could still be available with the 27th overall pick. Of note: No safeties were taken in the first round of the 2020 draft.
