With the NFL combine wrapping up on Monday, Luke Easterling of Draft Wire took an updated look at the draft with a four-round mock. In Easterling’s mind, the Baltimore Ravens and new general manager Eric DeCosta should load up on offense early on in the draft.
With Lamar Jackson now the quarterback in Baltimore, it only makes sense to build around him and give him choice weapons — something the team failed to do with outgoing QB Joe Flacco. Given the state of the Ravens’ receivers room and the poor free agent market at wide receiver this offseason, opting to take a wide receiver at No. 22 makes perfect sense for Baltimore.
At 6 feet 3 and 221 pounds, Harmon profiles as a prototypical possession receiver with exceptional hands. At the combine, Harmon confidently declared that his ball skills made him the best receiver in the draft, saying that “those 50/50 balls are 90/10 balls when they’re thrown my way.” However, concerns persist surrounding the North Carolina State product’s athleticism and ability to get separation, and a mediocre combine showing from Harmon that seems to legitimize those worries could nudge his draft stock well below pick No. 22.
