The Baltimore Ravens were one of the NFL’s unluckiest teams in 2015, seeing at least 20 players wind up on injured reserve by the end of the season. With a high first-round draft pick, Baltimore will have a chance to nab a blue-chip player early at an impact position. And because Ozzie Newsome is one of the most highly regarded football minds in the universe, especially when it comes to scouting, it’s safe to say that Baltimore could land a potential superstar.

While the Ravens have needs all over the board, Baltimore will likely select the best player available. After all, it’s not often that Newsome gets one of the first picks in the NFL Draft. Whether it’s a weapon out wide to bolster the passing game, a defensive back to shore up the secondary or a pass rusher of the future that Newsome decides to select has yet to be decided, but odds are that Baltimore will end up with a phenomenal player.

With the right moves in the draft and free agency, the Ravens could be back in contention as soon as next season.
