6. Ravens target: Benardrick McKinney, LB

Back to the linebacker position with the most accomplished player on this list in Benardrick McKinney. A former Pro Bowler, McKinney’s career in Houston came to an unceremonious end when he was shipped to the Miami Dolphins in the offseason.

Miami shockingly released McKinney before he could ever play in a game and he’s expected to garner some interest on the open market.

Baltimore doesn’t have much cap space left, but McKinney would be an excellent addition and his presence would likely take some of the pressure off of Malik Harrison.

5. Ravens target: Marvin Wilson, DT

Marvin Wilson was one of the most highly-touted undrafted players this May. The former Florida State standout was a hot commodity before landing with the Cleveland Browns shortly following the draft.

The Ravens only have five defensive linemen on their roster (unless they re-sign Justin Ellis) meaning that they could certainly use another body.

Wilson has the upside to make a waiver claim worth it.

4. Ravens target: Tyrell Cosby, OT

Perhaps the ideal swing tackle candidate on the waiver wire, it came as a sizable surprise that the Detroit Lions opted to move on from fourth-year lineman Tyrell Crosby who started 11 games for the team at right tackle last season.

He played alright too earning a 64.2 Pro Football Focus grade that ranked 54th out of all offensive tackles. Crosby is still young and could give Baltimore much more reliable depth behind Ronnie Stanley and Alejandro Villanueva.
