As we roll on with our Ravens Draft Central Big Boards, the guys take a look at the safety position, where the Ravens surely lack depth on the roster in it’s current construction. Who makes the most sense for the Ravens? Who would be a sneaky under-the-radar draft pick for Baltimore?

Let’s dive in…

Safety

Jake Vogel (@RealJakeVogel)

1. Xavier McKinney, Alabama

2. Jeremy Chinn, Southern Illinois

3. Antoine Winfield, Minnesota

4. Grant Delipt, LSU

5. Ashtyn Davis, Cal

6. Kyle Dugger, Lenoir Rhyne

7. K’Von Wallace, Clemson

8. Alohi Gilman, Notra Dame

9. Terrell Burgess, Utah

10. JR Reed, Georgia

Analysis: “This safety class is full of tweener safety/LB players. Jeremy Chinn and Kyle Dugger are two high caliber safeties that have the versatility to play some matchup/position-less football. Chinn is skyrocketing up boards, while Delpit is sliding because of his poor tackling in 2019. Derwin James is a complete freak, so it’s crazy when one hears comparisons between Chinn and James (there is some truth to this comp). For the Ravens, I’d like EDC to draft a guy that can legitimately be a single-high free safety. That position is very valuable, and there are far fewer prospects with that ability than those with the strong/box safety tools. Ashtyn Davis from Cal is billed as a rangy free safety (perhaps in mold of Nasir Adderley).”

1. Xavier McKinney, Alabama

2. Grant Delpit, LSU

3. Antoine Winfield, Minnesota

4. Kyle Dugger, Lenoir Rhyne

5. Jeremy Chinn, Southern Illinois

6. Ashtyn Davis, Cal

7. Terrell Burgess, Utah

8. K’Von Wallace, Clemson

9. Alohi Gilman, Notre Dame

10. Antoine Brook Jr., Maryland

Analysis: “Grant Delpit gets a lot of “boom or bust”, but I personally think he’s got a pretty high floor – it’s hard to envision a scenario where he’s not a contributor. I always love tweeners, especially from the context of the Ravens, but Winfield has a higher ceiling than Duggar and Chinn as a true safety. Antoine Brooks Jr. remains my mid-round gem”

1. Xavier McKinney, Alabama

2. Jeremy Chinn, Southern Illinois

3. Grant Delpit, LSU

4. Ashtyn Davis, Cal

5. Antoine Winfield, Minnesota

6. K’Von Wallace, Clemson

7. Kyle Dugger, Lenoir Rhyne

8. Terrell Burgess, Utah

9. Antoine Brook Jr, Maryland

10. Brandon Jones, Texas

Analysis: “As swiss army knife-type players with the ability to play all over the field, McKinney and Chinn could be in play for the Ravens with the 28th overall pick. K’Von Wallace is one of my personal favorite players in the class. He has the ability to play in the slot and affect the opposing offense in a wide variety of ways. Wallace would be a nice mid round option for a Ravens team that seems hell bent on having the most versatile defense in the NFL.”

1. Xavier McKinney, Alabama

2. Jeremy Chinn, Southern Illinois

3. Grant Delpit, LSU

4. Kyle Dugger, Lenoir Rhyne

5. Antoine Winfield, Minnesota

6. Ashtyn Davis, Cal

7. K’Von Wallace, Clemson

8. Antoine Brook Jr, Maryland

9. Alohi Gilman, Notre Dame

10. Terrell Burgess, Utah

Analysis: “McKinney is the clear-cut S1 in this class & I wouldn’t hesitate to pull that trigger if he’s there at 28. Chinn has a high floor to me, with plenty of versality which is why I have him at S2 above one-time S1, Grant Delpit. After 2019 I’m not a Delpit guy, but his 2018 keeps him (barely) in the top-3 for me. Dugger is a name we’ve heard attached to the Ravens plenty (in fan mocks, particularly) & that tweener ability would marry well with Wink in Baltimore. Hell, a lot of these guys with the ability to move around would fit nicely here! A local favorite & player I’d love to see in Baltimore after this draft is Antoine Brooks Jr.”
