The 14-2 Baltimore Ravens were the NFL’s best regular-season team in 2019. Many experts also assess the Ravens to be the team with the best performance during the 2020 NFL Draft.

A solid top-to-bottom effort in the selection process through three days of drafting has also left the Ravens as solid contenders to win Super Bowl 55.

The Ravens are listed at +700 in the Super Bowl odds. Only the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs (+600) currently show shorter odds.

Which other NFL contenders helped themselves through the draft process? Let’s look at analysis of the some of the key players in the draft.

Raving About the Ravens

A significant area in need of upgrading for Baltimore was at linebacker. The Ravens didn’t waste any time in addressing it.

LSU linebacker Patrick Queen was rated a top-15 pick by most NFL scouts. The Ravens got him 28th overall. He’s a protoype for the type of LB who works best in the Baltimore system – fast and physical.

Ohio State ILB Malik Harrison might not have the physical tools to be an every-down performer but is quick and a punishing hitter who should contribute as a role player.

Harrison’s teammate, Buckeyes running back JK Dobbins, was also expected to be a first rounder. Baltimore got him at #55. Last season, he rambled for 2,250 yards from scrimmage and 23 touchdowns.

Chiefs Fill Need

Patrick Mahomes told the Chiefs he wanted a running back to bolster their offence. The Kansas City brass listened to their MVP and Super Bowl-winning QB and selected Clyde Edwards-Helaire in the first round.

The LSU back ran  for 1,414 yards and an SEC-best 16 touchdowns in 2019. He averaged 6.6 yards per carry.

Mississippi State’s Willie Gay Jr should help at linebacker but KC did little early in the draft to upgrade in the secondary.

Gronk Launches Big Week

After luring tight end Rob Gronkowski out of retirement to reunite with Tom Brady, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were already having a good week. After the draft, it got even better.

Iowa’s Tristan Wirfs gives them a right tackle to protect Brady. Vanderbilt’s Ke’Shawn Vaughn offers Brady the versatile type of back he loved to utilize in New England. Vaughn is a dynamic runner who can also catch passes out of the backfield.

The oddsmakers took notice. Tampa Bay’s Super Bowl line shortened from +1500 to +1100.

Niners Got Finer

On the surface, the betting line on the reigning NFC champion San Francisco 49ers remains unchanged at +900. But no one is doubting that San Fran is a better team today.

In South Carolina defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw and Arizona State wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, they found instant replacements for the departed DeForest Buckner and Emmanuel Sanders.

On top of that, they made the bold move to acquire tackle Trent Williams from the Washington Redskins to replace the retiring Joe Staley.

Saints Add Vital Pieces

New Orleans first-round pick Cesar Ruiz of Michigan can play center or guard. He’s viewed as the best interior lineman in this draft class.

Wisconsin linebacker Zack Baun may turn out to be the steal of this draft in the third round at pick #74. Baun can drop into coverage and also rush the passer. He was viewed by some as first-round material.

Packing It In

All the Green Bay Packers managed to do with their first-round pick was anger their best player. Not very well-played strategy by the Pack.

Selecting Utah quarterback Jordan Love raised the ire of Green Bay’s All-Pro QB Aaron Rodgers.

After reaching the NFC Championship Game last season, the Packers didn’t add a single player who figures to be a major contributor to  the team’s cause in 2020.

Eagles Land With a Thud

The defending NFC East champion Eagles watched the Dallas Cowboys load up on draft day while they fiddled.

Many scouts viewed LSU’s Justin Jefferson and Clemson’s Tee Higgins as better options at WR than TCU’s Jalen Reagor.

Philly’s second-round pick of Oklahoma QB Jalen Hurts was equally puzzling, considering Eagles QB Carson Wentz isn’t even entering his prime years under center.
