Here is your Baltimore Ravens 2024 NFL Draft class

2024 ravens nfl draft class

The 2024 NFL Draft is in full swing.

With a 13-4 record in 2023, the Ravens entered the first round of the draft on Thursday night with the 30th pick and a total of nine selections over the three-day draft weekend.

The Ravens couldn’t be happier how it started with their pick of cornerback Nate Wiggins. He is one of the fastest players in the draft and the Ravens had him rated as a top-20 prospect, so to get him that late in the first round could end up being the steal of the draft. He fills a need for the Ravens, and many in the organization were surprised by the pick. (More first-round analysis here.)

Baltimore went into day two of the NFL draft with a priority at offensive line and edge rusher, managing to fill both needs with a pair of talented players that could make an immediate impact on the team. (More second-round analysis here.)

(ORIGINAL STORY) Draft preview: With several veterans departing this offseason, don’t be surprised to see the Ravens target an offensive tackle or guard early in the draft. The team could also look to add additional firepower to the offense with a young wide receiver. The defense could use some shoring up on the back end, so a cornerback would make sense.

However, much like his predecessor, Ozzie Newsome, Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta values a “best player available” mentality — so don’t expect the team to reach for a position of need.

No. 30: CB Nate Wiggins

With their first pick in the draft, the Ravens selected cornerback Nate Wiggins out of Clemson. He made first-team All-ACC in 2023, notching nine pass breakups and two interceptions.

Wiggins will join Marlon Humphrey and Brandon Stephens at corner.

“We were looking for Nate,” head coach John Harbaugh said. “It worked out, it came true. We’re excited.”

“Early in this process, I asked Nate when he came for a visit, I was like, ‘Man, I don’t know if you’re going to be here at (pick) 30, but if you are, I’m going to make sure that I fight on the table for you.’ And, obviously, we were able to get him,” said Ravens defensive coordinator Zach Orr. “Just speaking about Nate, he’s tall, he’s fast, he’s athletic, plays hard, plays physical, plays like a Raven.”

No. 61: OT Roger Rosengarten

With their second round pick, the Ravens selected offensive tackle Roger Rosengarten out of Washington.

Rosengarten held down the right side for the Huskies, protecting the blindside of left-handed quarterback Michael Penix Jr. The team won the Joe Moore Award in 2023, recognizing the best offensive line in the nation.

He’ll join a young group of guys competing for a bookend spot opposite Ronnie Stanley, including Daniel Faalele, Malaesala Aumavae-Laulu and Andrew Vorhees.

No. 113: WR Devontez Walker

A great target for Lamar Jackson: In 2023, North Carolina’s Devontez Walker was a third-team All-ACC player. He has 20 total career TDs and 1,796 total yards.

“Soon as he told me it was the Baltimore Ravens, I teared up … I’ve been waiting for this moment since I was 4 years old,” Walker told the Ravens.

Big and fast, he was a second- or third-round talent in past drafts, but with so many quality receivers this year, he slides all the way to 113 overall.

The 6-foot-3-inch, 180-pound pass catcher had seven TDs last year, averaging 17 yards a catch in Chapel Hill. His first two years at Kent State were wildly productive.
