Starters: Eugene Monroe, Marshal Yanda, Kelechi Osemele, Jeremy Zuttah, Rick Wagner

Backups: James Hurst, Ryan Jensen, John Urschel

Practice Squad: Kaleb Johnson, De’Ondre Wessley

The Ravens are rolling the dice a bit by carrying only 8 offensive linemen into the season, especially with various injuries still plaguing the position.  They do, however, return all five starters on one of the NFL’s best offensive lines from last season.

It might also be the last year we see guards Yanda and Osemele playing together, as both are up for free agency after the 2015 season.  The Ravens don’t have an obvious successor for either, and their trio of backups largely struggled when pressed into action last season.

The health of the offensive line will be the key to the Ravens success in 2015.  They are the key to this offense, both on the ground and through the air.
