3. Ravens roster battle: Depth wide receiver spots

The top three wide receiver spots are pretty much set in stone with the likes of Rashod Bateman, Marquise Brown, and Sammy Watkins all solidified as starters.

With likely three other spots up for grabs, the battle for the depth receiver roles on the team should be competitive this summer.

Fourth-round rookie Tylan Wallace is virtually a roster lock as well and he made a strong first impression this spring. The same could likely be said for Devin Duvernay.

However, Duvernay and Wallace are both competing with each other for the de facto No. 4 wide receiver job. Duvernay shined in limited action last season and deserves a bigger role in the offense in 2021.

Things really get interesting when discussing who the sixth receiver on the roster might be.

Former third-round pick Miles Boykin has received ample playing time over his first two NFL seasons, but has failed to do much of anything with it.

Boykin remains the team’s best blocker at the wide receiver position, but will that be enough to earn him a roster spot? 2020 sixth-rounder James Proche is likely his biggest competition.

There’s also the likes of Jaylon Moore, Binjimen Victor, and Deon Cain who each made plays this spring, but it’s hard to see any of them making the final roster, barring injuries.

Although Moore and Victor, in particular, could be intriguing practice squad candidates.
