1. Offensive line depth

The Ravens' line has been ripped to shreds by free agency, as they have parted ways with three starters from last year. The planned replacements could end up being Andrew Vorhees, Ben Cleveland, and Daniel Faalele. That trio has eight starts between them, and Cleveland has seven of them.

The Ravens will assuredly add someone in the NFL Draft to boost the line, as Faalele, Josh Jones, and what is left of Ronnie Stanley don't seem to be the most dynamic collection of offensive tackles in the world. One injury to Stanley could be enough to send the line into a state of complete chaos.

The Baltimore Ravens need more offensive line help

Outside of Pro Bowl center Tyler Linderbaum, the Ravens' offensive line may not have one sure thing due to Stanley's health history. Signing Derrick Henry is an ultimate win-now move, and he needs one of the best offensive lines in the league to be as effective as humanly possible.

The Ravens need to come out of the offseason with at least one promising young offensive line prospect added via the draft and another addition from the free agent market. Without those additions, the Ravens are putting the utmost faith in players who are still greenhorns in the pros.
