Another first-round receiver? Well, the Ravens are going to need another starter once Steve Smith moves on. Considering Smith will turn 37 a couple of weeks after the 2016 NFL Draft, Baltimore may have to address this position next spring.

Eddie Jackson, CB, Alabama
Ozzie Newsome has shown that he has an affinity for Alabama prospects, so perhaps he'll take a player from that school who can help fill the void across from Jimmy Smith.
Even if Courtney Upshaw breaks out in 2015, the Ravens will need to land another young pass-rusher to groom as a replacement for Elvis Dumervil (31) or Terrell Suggs (32).
Floyd is a speedy rusher who is just scratching the surface of his potential. He is a natural pass-rusher with agility and a knack for getting to the quarterback. In 2014, the sophomore had 55 tackles with six sacks, two forced fumbles and 8.5 tackles for a loss. Floyd's run defense was a liability, and it caused him to get benched for a time, so going back to Georgia to improve before going pro was a wise decision on his part.
In 2013, Floyd totaled 55 tackles with 9.5 tackles for a loss and 6.5 sacks. The 6-foot-4, 230-pounder played at Hargrave Military Academy for a season after high school.

KeiVarae Russell, CB, Notre Dame
Many thought the Ravens were going to address cornerback early in the 2015 NFL Draft, but that didn't happen. Baltimore was weak at corner last year, so adding some talent to pair with Jimmy Smith could be necessary next offseason.
Russell (5-11, 190) has some natural coverage ability. He is fast enough to maintain coverage with receivers in and out of their breaks, but also plays bigger than his listed size. Russell missed 2014 over an academic suspension. In his debut season, he had 58 tackles with two interceptions and two passes broken up. Russell continued his strong play for the Irish in 2013. The sophomore totaled 51 tackles, one interception and eight passes broken up.
