The depth is very deep:
Along with the continuity between 2019 and 2020’s defenses, the Baltimore Ravens also have some ridiculous depth to match with the starters.

In the secondary alone Baltimore will roll out Earl Thomas and Chuck Clark at safety, with others like Anthony Levine and DeShon Elliott behind them. The starting three corners return as well in the forms of Marlon Humphrey, Marcus Peters, and Jimmy Smith. We can’t forget about slot corner Tavon Young‘s return, either.
The defensive line is another unit that is particularly deep. Brandon Williams returns, but the Ravens went and added Calais Campbell and Michael Brockers via trade and Free Agency to make the unit stout at the top. Behind them are Jihad Ward and Justin Ellis, both of whom were brought back for that depth, as well as 2019 fifth-round pick Daylon Mack.
The edge-rushing depth chart needs some work, but having Matt Judon back in the cards is huge for the Ravens. Tyus Bowser stepped up down the stretch last year, and there remains a lot of hope that second-year man Jaylon Ferguson can grow into a starting role for the team.
There are still moves that can be made, too, both in Free Agency and the 2020 NFL Draft. As it stands now, the depth is surreal and it can only get better.
