Some NFL scouts have cited the Baltimore Ravens as a winner on this yr’s NFL draft partially due to the group’s first-round choice, Clemson cornerback Nate Wiggins.

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler relayed that data on SportsCenter on Saturday:

“There’s a variety of buzz from scouts I am speaking to about who gained, who misplaced the draft. They create up Baltimore. Is that this one other yr the place they obtained a very good first-round steal as a result of he wasn’t essentially the highest cornerback within the mock drafts however a number of scouts I talked to say they’d him because the premier man based mostly on his cowl abilities capability. Somewhat undersized however he overcomes that with toughness.”

This is not the primary time NFL executives have praised the Ravens for Wiggins, the No. 30 total selection.

“Nate Wiggins was the perfect cowl nook within the draft,” one in every of them instructed Mike Sando of The Athletic. “He falls slightly as a result of he didn’t compete as persistently as you want, however going into that Baltimore tradition, they must really feel good. They don’t seem to be a group you actually query.”

The 6’1″, 182-pound Wiggins earned First-team All-ACC honors in 2022 and 2023. He completed final season with 29 tackles, six go breakups and two interceptions.
