9. Ravens target: David Sharpe, OT

One spot on the roster that doesn’t seem very clear is who the Ravens’ swing tackle will be. Right now, it’s really anyone’s guess with guys like Patrick Mekari and Tyre Phillips having seen time at tackle in the summer.

The Ravens could add an experienced swing tackle in David Sharpe to provide some stability to the tackle position. Sharpe started two games for the Washington Football Team last year and has 34 games of NFL experience under his belt.

8. Ravens target: Devonta Freeman, RB

How much does Devonta Freeman still have left in the tank? That’s the question the Ravens will be asking themselves after he was released by the New Orleans Saints on Tuesday.

Freeman rushed for just 172 yards on 54 carries (3.2 average) with the Giants last season after a lackluster final year in Atlanta.

His NFL career could be coming to an end soon, but perhaps a stint in Baltimore could help light a fire under him.

7. Ravens target: Javian Hawkins, RB

A younger, perhaps more interesting running back the Ravens could target is Javian Hawkins. Signed as an undrafted free agent out of Louisville, Hawkins is undersized but quick having run a 4.44 40-yard dash at his pro day.

While smaller than Dobbins, Hawkins has a similar running style to his position-mate and could push for playing time in a backfield rotation featuring Ty’Son Williams and Justice Hill.
