Eric Edholm gives Ravens a Grade A draft performance

It was a pleasure having Eric Edholm of Yahoo Sports on with Nestor as they recapped the Ravens’ 2020 NFL Draft. As has become custom in Baltimore over the years, the Ravens’ front office is once again earning high praise.

“Sometimes you have to be a little aggressive like they were with the Lamar Jackson pick,” Edholm said. “Sometimes you have to be a little more passive and move back. For the most part, they sort of let it come to them, and they really found great value and talent at every spot. The whole class made perfect sense to me. I had the Cowboys, Ravens, Cardinals, ad maybe one other that had A’s. I only gave out four A’s this year and they were one of them.”

Eric touched on the Ravens’ unexpectedly taking a running back in JK Dobbins in the 2nd round.

“That pick in particular excited me,” Edholm said. “I tend to gravitate a little bit more towards the teams that aren’t so hellbent on getting the quote unquote need…”I think they said look, we got this guy really high on our board. Let’s grab him.”
