The Baltimore Ravens are open to selecting a quarterback in the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft, according to general manager Eric DeCosta.
Speaking to reporters on Wednesday (H/T Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic), the GM declined to comment after being asked whether or not he’s spoken to Lamar Jackson since the QB requested a trade. But he did reveal that the team could bring in a signal-caller via the way of the draft depending on their board and where they have QBs ranked.
DeCosta has also disclosed that the Ravens are keen on edge rusher Will Anderson and will most likely pick him if he’s still available when they’re on the clock.

The team’s offense would have to be modified to accommodate Levis but Richardson already looks like a great fit.
If they’re simply looking for someone who could play behind Jackson, should he stay, there are options in the likes of Dorian Thompson-Robinson from UCLA and Malik Cunningham from Louisville. BYU QB Jaren Hall is also worth considering depending on the intent.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
