Some Notes: 

Stop me if you have heard this before, but I think the Ravens will go with an offensive player throughout most of the draft. Remember that offense includes the offensive line as well.

Since the Ravens focused on defense during the 2017 draft, I would expect linebacker to be addressed at some point this year, but not much else on that side of the ball. The secondary seems solid, although you can never count out a cornerback being drafted. The front-four on the defensive line is deep as well. 

I think the Ravens are going to draft at least three wide receivers/tight ends this year, as the position rooms are pretty empty at this point.
