We have a lot to talk about after the Baltimore Ravens used the 2020 NFL Draft to stock up on some key needs. Here is a projection of the 53 man roster, because it is not too early to think about training camp and roster battles.
Editor’s note, there will be 55 player rosters. This was originally posted as a 53 man roster.
The Baltimore Ravens could add a third quarterback to the 53 man roster. The reason I don’t think they go that way is because they have a couple of position groups they’ll want an extra body at. The two quarterbacks on this projected roster need no explanation. Jackson is the NFL MVP and Griffin is a solid back up that has a lot of trust in this franchise.
Running back and fullback (5)
There may almost be too many mouths to feed in this backfield. The Ravens are however a run first team who just broke the NFL record for rushing yards in a season. Adding J.K. Dobbins allows the Ravens to have another play-maker for the offense. Ingram, Dobbins and Hill are all players that can help out by catching the football. The versatility and the big play capability that this running back group group is going to be hard on the AFC North.
Patrick Ricard is one of the most underrated players in the NFL. The fullback is a big part of this offense and Ricard is an underutilized play-maker. With all these running backs, Ricard could get more touches as the Ravens secret play-maker that everyone forgets about coming out of the flat, or pounding the football up the middle.
Tight End (3)
You know all about Mark Andrews. He’s a Pro Bowl talent who led the Ravens in receptions last season. You know Nick Boyle. He’s the Ravens do it all tight end, who happens to be the best blocking tight end in the NFL. Jacob Breeland is the player that may spark some curiosity here. Breeland is a 6’5″ 250 pound tight end out of Oregon. He scored 13 touchdowns in four seasons for the Ducks. He has enough potential to stick around and he should be a part of special teams.
