The Baltimore Ravens could draft a quarterback
The Baltimore Ravens have a murky situation at quarterback heading into the 2023 NFL Draft. The Ravens applied the non-exclusive franchise tag to starting quarterback Lamar Jackson this offseason. Because of their position with Jackson, Ian Rapoport reported the Ravens are keeping tabs open at quarterback in the draft.

Ravens’ general manager Eric DeCosta recently made a bold suggestion about quarterbacks in this year’s draft. According to Nick Shook with the NFL.com, DeCosta said there should be quarterbacks to take anywhere in the draft:
“The fact is that we think that you can get a quarterback in the first round, or the third round or the fourth round who have a chance to develop. Go back to Tyrod Taylor, when we drafted him in the fifth round or sixth round.
Years and years and years ago, Derek Anderson, we took him in the sixth or seventh. So you can get good quarterbacks. You saw what the Niners did last year with Brock Purdy. It’s quite possible to get a good quarterback at any point in the draft. Obviously, the G.O.A.T., Tom Brady, was a sixth-round pick.”
The Ravens, who have the 22nd overall pick in the draft, could be taking a quarterback there or in a later round that they think can help the team this season.
