1. Zack Martin, OT, Notre Dame
Some scouts question his frame (6'4", 308 lbs) and whether he can play tackle in the NFL. If you watched him shut down every pass-rusher he faced while lined up at left tackle this season (including in the Senior Bowl), you won't be as concerned about his ability to play tackle.
He is incredibly smart, uses phenomenal technique and doesn't miss plays. That would be a refreshing change for the Baltimore offensive line. Martin is a safe pick: If he doesn't work out at tackle, he's a Pro Bowl guard. His spot on the Ravens big board depends on whether they think he's a tackle or not, but he's a first-round prospect.
2. Marqise Lee, WR, USC
There will be some debate as to the order of Marqise Lee and Mike Evans, but the Ravens will be getting an exciting young player with either pick. Lee is more well-rounded right now, with the electrifying speed to beat defenders deep, gain separation from defensive backs and make would-be tacklers miss in the open field.
3. Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
Size. That's what you notice with Mike Evans. He's 6'5" and 225 lbs. Whoa.
He will tower over NFL cornerbacks, and he has the hands, coordination and leaping ability to come down with every jump ball thrown his way. As a red-zone threat and contested-catch receiver, there's nobody better in this class.
There are, however, drawbacks. His route running is rudimentary, and he doesn't possess great quickness or footwork to separate from defensive backs. The upside is abundantly clear, but he may not put it all together.
4. Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
Taylor Lewan's draft stock is lower than it would have been last year, but he's still an elite tackle prospect. With tremendous size at 6'7" and 315 lbs, he is a people-mover and possesses the requisite mean streak to be a devastating run-blocker at the next level. He has the potential to be a left tackle from Day 1, but he would thrive as a right tackle opposite Eugene Monroe.
5. Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina
The Ravens aren't drafting Eric Ebron if they re-sign Dennis Pitta. But if he walks, Ebron might even be an upgrade. He's a terrific athlete with the speed and body control to dissect defenses up the seams and across the middle of the field. Built in the mold of Jimmy Graham, Ebron is the best tight end in the class.
6. Hasean Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama
It would be risky to start two young safeties, but Hasean Clinton-Dix is better than a number of NFL free safeties. He's a tough hitter with excellent recognition skills and closing speed to cover a lot of ground on the back end.
7. Calvin Pryor, FS, Louisville
Clinton-Dix is the best safety in the draft, but Calvin Pryor is hot on his tail and rising fast. He is an excellent cover safety with the ability to play deep-half coverage or as a single-high safety. The Louisville prospect is no longer one of the draft's best-kept secrets.
