2014 NFL Mock Draft And Projected Ravens Picks

Posted on February 20, 2014 by Ken Zalis

Below are an initial mock first-round NFL Draft and some round-by-round Ravens draft projections. After losing a coin toss to Dallas, the Ravens currently do not have a fourth-, fifth- or seventh-round pick, but they are expected to receive four compensatory picks, which will be announced in March.

• Quarterback Blake Bortles (University of Central Florida) could be the first overall pick if he throws well.
