After 11 games, the Baltimore Ravens were the No. 1 seed in the AFC. Lamar Jackson was a legitimate MVP candidate and the Ravens seemed like a lock to make the playoffs. But Baltimore lost its final six games and finished the season at 8-9.
The good news for the Ravens is that Jackson is healthy and should be ready to go in 2022. They also have a ton of draft capital with nine picks in the first four rounds. This was already one of the best rosters in the NFL and they should improve dramatically via the draft. In addition, online sports betting in Maryland is on the legislative agenda in the state this year, with hopes it could be passed in time for the start of the new NFL season in September.
So who might the Ravens pick in Round 1 and who is the current favorite to be the selection at No. 14? Take a look at who the Ravens are most likely to select at No. 14 overall, with these NFL odds via Adam Thompson, our oddsmaker at Bookies.com.

Who Will The Ravens Take In The NFL Draft?
After adding several veteran offensive linemen this offseason and drafting Rashod Bateman in Round 1 last year, it feels likely that the Ravens will use their top pick on a defender this year. But who might that be?
Jordan Davis (Georgia) would be a perfect fit in the middle of their defense as the team could be moving on from both Brandon Williams and Calais Campbell. Davis had an all-time great combine performance, running a 4.78 40-yard dash at 341 pounds. While he isn’t a developed pass rusher, he’s an elite run-stopping defensive tackle that could plug up the middle of the defense for the Ravens for years to come. He’s very similar to a player like Haloti Ngata, who the Ravens took at No. 12 overall in the 2006 NFL Draft.
Davis might be the ideal pick for the Ravens at No. 14, but he's not a lock to be available at that spot in the draft. If he's gone, look for the Ravens to continue to upgrade their secondary. Baltimore's cornerback depth was tested last season and it could not compete against the better teams. So if a player like Derek Stingley (LSU), Trent McDuffie (Washington) or Ahmad "Sauce" Gardner (Cincinnati) is available at No. 14, it'll be hard for Baltimore to pass on their elite talent. All three players project as high-end cornerbacks in the NFL, which the Ravens have always had on their defense.

The Ravens could also use more edge-rush help despite selecting Odafe Oweh in the first round last year. They need more size and athleticism on defense and Jermaine Johnson (Florida State) is someone who would fit nicely into their defense. Johnson is a proven pass rusher and has shown flashes of being a good run defender. On a defense that needs more athletes, Johnson would make a ton of sense.
It’s also worth mentioning that because Baltimore has so many picks in this year’s class, they could be open to moving up or down the board. If a player like Kyle Hamilton (Notre Dame) or Kayvon Thibodeaux (Oregon) were to fall, don't be surprised to see Baltimore be aggressive in this draft. They certainly have the draft ammunition to move up and down the board.
