The Baltimore Ravens drafted University of Connecticut defensive lineman Travis Jones with the 76th overall pick in the 2022 NFL draft. Jones was expected to fall nowhere near the third round, and Baltimore took advantage by securing an extremely talented player at a great value on the draft board.

During rookie mini camp, Jones was asked about how he felt he improved during his pre-draft process and how excited he is to get the NFL coaching from the Ravens. Jones talked about what he got better at during the Senior Bowl in particular, and said that he’s only going to get better.

“Throughout the Senior Bowl, I feel like I became more consistent with my hands as a pass rusher. I feel like now that I’m in the league, getting a little better coaching and going against better competition, I’m only going to get better from here. So, it’s going to be good to see.”

Jones will receive quality NFL coaching in Baltimore, but will also be able to learn from veterans on the team’s defensive line such as Calais Campbell, Michael Pierce and others. A hopefully improved Ravens secondary should make quarterbacks struggle to find open receivers, which would give Jones and company ample opportunities to get a lot of pressure on opposing signal callers.
