Offensive Line: Ronnie Stanley, Bradley Bozeman, Creed Humphrey, Kevin Zeitler, Orlando Brown Jr.
Rounding things out is the updated offensive line wish list, and it’s pretty safe to say this group would have no problem making life difficult for opposing front sevens. Ronnie Stanley will hopefully return to form as one of the top blindside tackles in the league, despite a rough ending to his 2020 season there have been no reports of setbacks to indicate he won’t be good to go.
Bradley Bozeman did some really good things this past season as well, but in all likelihood, there will still be a competition between him and Ben Powers for who fills the left guard spot. This position is one that will certainly be interesting to watch when camp starts, but both candidates should be rock solid, especially with the talent around them.
Another pre-draft darling of the Ravens Flock, Creed Humphrey out of Oklahoma would give the Ravens a much-needed consistency at the center position that was on full display in the playoff loss to Buffalo. For this scenario to play out, Humphrey would have to fall to late in round 2 with the Ravens selecting Bateman first. While a betting man would say it’s more likely that an offensive line needy team would snatch him up before the 58th overall selection, far crazier things have taken place on draft night.
The signing of Kevin Zeitler fit the mold of everything that the Ravens do in free agency. The veteran presence he brings to the group alone will likely far outweigh the impact any draft day selection or current roster member would’ve brought to right guard. Despite not playing the exact same position, Zeitler could have a Matt Birk-Esque strong ending to his career in Baltimore.
Orlando Brown Jr. continues to scour the market for a trade opportunity, but the Ravens have yet to jump at any offers as of this moment. As draft day draws closer and closer, the chances of him continuing to be in purple and black for 2021 only increase with every second. The Ravens would ideally prefer not to lose him next year for zero compensation, but they’re also in win-now mode. Having a talent of Brown’s caliber bookending the right side of the offensive line is an obvious plus for their Super Bowl chances, even if it means letting him walk away in 2022.
