Wide Receiver (6)
The wide receivers have been subject to plenty of talk during OTAs. The new group got the first chance to build chemistry with Joe Flacco and the deep ball was on display early and often during practices. Rookies Jordan Lasley and Jaleel Scott both earned praises during their time on the field and Chris Moore made a handful of impressive catches. It’s important not to overhype any offseason practices and take things with a grain of salt but the Ravens could see a new and improved receiving core this season.
As it stands, I have Chris Moore as the only returning starter from last season. Breshad Perriman is still on the wrong side of the roster bubble as the offseason continues to progress.

Tight End (3)
Taking only three tight ends may seem uncharacteristic but it’s not too farfetched. The Ravens took Nick Boyle, Maxx Williams, Ben Watson and Vince Mayle on the 53-man roster last season. Mayle contributed almost exclusively in special teams, leaving three viable tight ends on the offense. That’s essentially what I have here, without a special teams contributor. Maxx Williams has struggled to stay healthy and the former second-round pick hasn’t panned out as expected. Williams will have to prove and compete among two talented rookies and there’s a legitimate chance he won’t make the roster.
