Defensive Line

In: Brandon Williams, Timmy Jernigan, Chris Canty, Carl Davis, Lawrence Guy, Kapron Lewis-Moore

Out: DeAngelo Tyson, Micajah Reynolds, Christo Bilukidi

The Ravens kept only five defensive linemen on the final roster last season, but may not be 100% comfortable doing so this year with a group of young players.

With Williams, Jernigan, Canty, and Davis the obvious locks, the real battle comes down to Lewis-Moore, Tyson, and Bilukidi.

The Ravens have kept Lewis-Moore around on I.R. for two straight seasons, but he’ll have to show them something soon to get his shot.  I think his upside is still there.

Bilukidi was signed off the Bengal’s practice squad last season and is a replaceable talent.  Tyson has done nothing to this point to earn a roster spot and his time may be up.
