Previewing Day 2 of the NFL draft: Ravens picks, needs and potential targets in second, third round

The Ravens entered the first night of the NFL draft with just one first-round pick. They left Thursday having made two trades and two highly touted selections.

With two Day 2 picks and seven Day 3 picks, what will general manager Eric DeCosta do next?


“I don’t want to tip my hand, but I do think there are excellent players available in the next three rounds, really,” DeCosta said Thursday night. “One of our goals with this draft was to have as many picks as possible. ... I do think, though, our goal is to be pretty damn good with these upcoming picks. I think we’ve stacked an excellent board; our scouts and coaches have done a great job. And I think we’re primed to do very well in the next couple days.”

Here’s a look at what to expect Friday.


What time is the draft, and how can I watch it?

Coverage of the second and third round begins Friday at 7 p.m. and will be broadcast on ESPN, ABC and the NFL Network. After having a 10-minute window for first-round picks, teams get just seven minutes between selections in the second round and five minutes in the third.

When do the Ravens pick in the Day 2 draft order?

The Ravens have the No. 45 overall pick in the second round and the No. 76 overall pick in the third round.

What could the Ravens do?

The Ravens’ best-player-available approach Thursday led them to Notre Dame safety Kyle Hamilton at No. 14 overall and Iowa center Tyler Linderbaum at No. 25 overall.

But after trading away wide receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown and passing on several premium positions, their needs are many and their range of possible moves Friday is vast. Will they look to hold where they are in both rounds? Could they package a handful of their fourth-round picks to add a Day 2 selection?

Here’s how their most pressing positional needs stack up, along with a second- and third-round possibility at each spot.
