The Baltimore Ravens are gearing up for the 2022 NFL draft, and currently hold 10 draft picks. There are many different directions that the team could decide to in each time they’re on the clock, especially with the No. 14th overall selection, which is higher than Baltimore is generally custom to select in the first round.
In his latest two-round 2022 NFL mock draft, Ryan Wilson of CBS Sports has the Ravens taking a talented player on both sides of the ball with Baltimore’s first two selections. First off at No. 14, Wilson has the Ravens selecting former Florida State edge rusher Jermaine Johnson II, talking about how Johnson would become a running mate for outside linebacker Odafe Oweh.
“After transferring from Georgia, Johnson has a fantastic season at Florida State. And he told us at the combine that he felt like he had something to prove going from the SEC to the ACC. He did that and then some, then he dominated the Senior Bowl, and followed that up with an electric workout in Indy. The Ravens drafted Odafe Oweh a year ago and he’ll get a running mate with Johnson here. ”
Next, Wilson has Baltimore taking former Central Michigan offensive tackle to Luke Goedeke. The 6-foot-5, 310 pound offensive lineman projects as more of a utility player at the NFL level, but is a strong player that has a good anchor.
Addressing edge rusher and the offensive line in the first two rounds of the draft would be a good investment. Outside of those two positions, the cornerback could be another big need that the Ravens could look to add early on, but Johnson and Goedeke would be a solid start to Baltimore’s 2022 rookie class.
