I’m fine letting Boykin develop. But if add a good veteran WR.... Amari Cooper and Randall Cobb are a couple of options

Cooper will sign a huge deal.  I dont see a lot of free agents that interest me.  This draft is Deeep at WR, and given DeCostas "more bite of the apple" comment, I think we see one drafted somewhere along the line.

I’ve been looking at mock drafts now that our season is over and we’re locked into the #28 pick.  An interesting name is Terrell Lewis (we’ve had some success with people named Terrell and Lewis 😂), DE from Alabama.  Former 5 star recruit from DC who chose Bama over Maryland.  Lead Bama in QB pressures this season.  Maybe @Roll Tide can chime in on him since he’s an Alabama fan.  We desperately need another pass rusher.

We need O line and D line help.  I think those would be my top areas to target.   Probably slight edge to Defense.

The WR coming out in this draft ate nutty levels of talented.  Having draft capital to move up and be able to get 2-3 high impact players would be nice.

I'm thinking WR, edge, MLB in the top 2.5 rounds.

I'm onboard in part with your thinking. Give Jackson some more weapons and reduce his need to run with the ball so maybe he develops into a more complete QB. I wouldnt mind adding another RB with a premium pick either. Then work on OL and LB.

Yeah, I would go overboard trying to add WRs. Draft a legit one and sign Robby Anderson. We just saw what happens when you're relying on scrubs in the post season.

Beef up at WR and both lines and we should be in really good shape.

What website is most reliable to get information on drops?

We had at least 6 in this game, I'd like to see the details.

Probably pro football reference.

Linebackers appear to be the one spot I'm seeing mocked to the Ravens at #28. Queen and Murray are the two I see most often. I believe an Edge Rusher is priority #1, but naturally one worthy of that pick must be available.

Tee Higgins would be a great fit.

Yes, Lamar would love another jump ball specialist to go with Andrews. I also think Laviska Shenault would be a very fun piece. 
 

A player I like in later rounds with similar Shenault-like versatility is Antonio Gibson out of Memphis.   He also returns kicks, which is low-key an area of need for us.

check out his tape:

I think D-line may be the thinnest it's been in 20 years. I'd go D-Line, MLB/OLB, OL as my top 3. I think a veteran WR will want to come here for the chance at a ring so that shouldn't be a top 3 round priority.

Too many defensive needs to go WR in the first three rounds unless some stud falls.  They need multiple linebackers and a stud edge rusher.  If they do go offense I am betting it will be a OL Yanda replacement.

I agree on WR.....They need to address DE and MLB to really have a chance. We got handled when teams exploited weaknesses at LB. ranking in the middle in sacks despite leading in blitzing says a lot.

Get Murray in RD 1 and the best edge guy at 2. And sign Clowney to go with Judon.

Plenty of cuts that make sense this year including Jefferson, Carr, Hurst, and Koch add a cool $20 million.

I think they trade Judon.  I like him, have always supported him, but dont think he is worth what he gets paid.

I think you could take the money you would pay Judon and Clowney and fill 3-4 spots with very capable players.

Blake Matinez or Littleton are at the top of my list, followed by some edge guys.

The good thing is if DeCosta follows the Newsome model he will have most of the holes filled by the draft so they can go BPA.

Calculations like "d-line and MLB are shallow in this draft so we should pick there first" is how bad teams are built, and I trust the Ravens will keep their options open come round 1.
