2. Pass rushers

The Ravens entered the offseason with their three top sack producers from last season in Madubuike, Jadeveon Clowney, and Kyle Van Noy on the free agent market. With only Madubuike brought back and Tyus Bowser getting cut, Baltimore is in need of more reinforcements on the edge.

The current starters on the defensive line are Odafe Oweh, who still hasn't reached his ceiling after three pro seasons, and David Ojabo, who can't be counted on much due to his perpetual injury concerns. The Ravens need to bring back Clowney above all else, but the draft could be a big help as well.

The Baltimore Ravens need more pass rush depth.

The free agent pass rusher market is quite thin after most of the big names already signed, leaving the Ravens in an unenviable position. Even if they draft someone high, asking three players on rookie contracts to replace experienced veterans like Clowney and Van Noy could be a tall order.

While Baltimore has one of the best secondaries in the league, part of why they are so great is how they work in tandem with a ferocious front four. Without Clowney or Van Noy (or a worthwhile replacement), the Ravens' defense as a whole could take a step back in 2024.
