1. Lorenzo Taliaferro
Instead of at running back, Taliaferro will be given a chance to replace Kyle Juszczyk as the fullback. Taliaferro os vying for the job against Ricky Ortiz.
The fullback position is extra important this season. With a potentially troubling offensive line the Ravens need a great lead blocker. This season is all about getting the running game going, so the fullback could see more snaps throughout the year. Taliaferro needs to earn a spot at fullback, otherwise he may not earn a spot at all.
It’s not just being a lead blocker for the running game. He has to be good at pass protection, catching the ball out of the backfield and carrying the football. It is important to remember how pivotal Juszczyk was to the passing game.
