The interior of the Ravens’ defensive line is one of the best in the league with a rotation of Michael Pierce, Justin Madubuike, and last year’s third round pick Travis Jones. Last year, teams found very little running room as the Ravens allowed the second-fewest rushing yards per game with only 51 yards per game.
This shouldn’t stop them from adding more depth to the position and that is why a player like Zacch Pickens is a great selection here in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft. He is a player who not only can help against the run but also bring a little bit of pressure as evidenced by his 7.5 sacks with South Carolina.
It may be considered a luxury pick when considering the other defensive tackles currently on the roster but with Justin Madubuike set to be a free agent after the 2023 season, it wouldn’t be surprising to see them look to address this position in the later rounds.
