Here's what you need to know about the Ravens 2019 draft.

There’s plenty you might not know about the Ravens’ draft class — which includes a hair-cutting enthusiast.
Form the big-pay excitement of first-round pick Marquise Brown to the familiar draft maneuvering from general manager Eric DeCosta, here are five things we learned from the Ravens' 2019 draft.
Now that Eric DeCosta's first draft as general manager is in the books, let's see what experts around the country are saying about the Ravens' picks.
As the Ravens set out during this weekend’s NFL draft to give Jackson weapons, their methodology on offense became clear over six rounds and eight selections: They were not just trying to build the team around Jackson. They were trying to build something like a track team for him, too.
The Ravens appear to have upgraded because they attempted to fill needs at wide receiver, edge rusher and on the offensive line.
After trading their No. 22 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft to the Philadelphia Eagles, the Ravens selected Oklahoma wide receiver Marquise Brown at No. 25 overall on Thursday night.
Ravens first-round pick Marquise Brown has always faced doubts because of his size. But his rare determination and scintillating speed pushed him past those questions to the top of the 2019 receiver class and a vital place in the future story of the Lamar Jackson-led Ravens.
The Baltimore Sun's Ravens beat writers offer their instant reactions to the Ravens trading down and picking Oklahoma wide receiver Marquise Brown at No. 25 overall in the first round.
General manager Eric DeCosta made a bold move by picking Oklahoma wide receiver Marquise Brown in the first round, but with top defensive prospects still available and questions about Brown's size and fit in the Ravens offense, the selection raises some concerns.
Ravens draft pick Marquise Brown has always been Hollywood. He grew up in Hollywood, a South Florida city in Broward County not far from where teammate Lamar Jackson hails.
After trading their No. 22 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft to the Philadelphia Eagles, the Ravens selected Oklahoma wide receiver Marquise Brown at No. 25 overall on Thursday night.
It was hard to find anyone who thought that Oklahoma wide receiver Marquise Brown was a bad pick for the Ravens.
The NFL draft is the most exciting event of the offseason, and it always lives up to the hype — since that's pretty much all it is.
With the first of two third-round draft picks Friday night, the Ravens took Louisiana Tech edge rusher Jaylon Ferguson 85th overall.
After day one of the annual NFL draft, the Ravens came away with one of college football’s top receivers even though he was small and far from the prototype. But on day two, the Ravens might have gotten better by adding edge rusher Jaylon Ferguson and receiver Miles Boykin, both third-round picks.

After 23 years of apprenticing to Ozzie Newsome, Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta will run his first draft starting on Thursday night. But DeCosta's combination of drive, curiosity and personal touch with colleagues pointed him in this direction long ago.
After two offseason departures, and with a third possibly on the horizon, the Ravens could look to find their next sack artist at No. 22 overall — or not long thereafter.
The Ravens will likely try to trade down in the NFL draft and gain second- or third-round picks because they only have one in the top 84. If they can’t, the suggestion here is that the Ravens select a pass rusher, regardless of whether it’s an outside linebacker or defensive end.

Among the 12 teams that made the NFL playoffs last season, only the Ravens had a leading wide receiver finish with fewer than 750 receiving yards.

From the appeal of trading down to their elusive quest for a wide receiver, here are five things we learned from the Ravens' pre-draft luncheon Tuesday.
Ever since the Ravens moved to Baltimore from Cleveland in 1996, Eric DeCosta has been in the shadows of either head coaches or general managers. Now, it’s his time to step into the spotlight and under the microscope.
Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta, who has the No. 22 overall pick and a need for improved play at wide receiver, acknowledged Tuesday that the team is looking at D.K. Metcalf.
Maryland product Derwin Gray was twice an All-Big Ten honorable mention at tackle but has the size of an interior lineman.
Mississippi star D.K. Metcalf, who entered Indianapolis as a prospect heavily linked to the Ravens’ No. 22 pick, likely established himself as the class’ top wide receiver.
Some prospects rose out of the Ravens’ first-round range, while others might have entered the team's radar.
The Ravens need a top wide receiver and pass rusher, but an offensive lineman and running back are worth watching, too.
