Baltimore Ravens: Cameron Thomas, DL/EDGE, San Diego State
A couple of gutsy risks caused the Baltimore Ravens to miss the postseason in 2021.
That, and a number of injuries throughout the season, of course.
The Ravens are still a team that should threaten to go from worst to first in 2022, but they will need to do some reloading in the trenches on both sides of the ball.
There is almost no competition in the NFL with the Ravens as far as teams that can develop talent in-house on a year-to-year basis.
The Ravens also seem to do a great job of maximizing the talent of their rookies year in and year out, which leads me to believe a player like Cameron Thomas could thrive in their program, even if Wink Martindale is no longer calling the plays defensively.
Thomas can play all over the defensive front and cause a lot of havoc for opposing offensive lines.
During the 2021 season, he racked up 20.5 tackles for loss and 10.5 sacks. He has an instinctive way about making plays in the backfield both against the run and as a pass rusher, and the Ravens would probably love to add a player like this to the mix with young star Odafe Oweh also developing.
