The Baltimore Ravens addressed their suspect offensive line early in the 2024 NFL Draft, using a second-round pick on a possible right tackle of the future in Washington's Roger Rosengarten. If he is as dominant as he was with the Huskies, the Ravens will have two of their five starting spots locked up long-term.

In the short-term, however, the Ravens could stand to make one more impactful addition to the squad. Andrew Vorhees has a ton of potential, and Ben Cleveland might be ready to finally shine in the pros, but both of them have some questions to answer. Ronnie Stanley is far from a lock to play all 17 games.

The Ravens may not be overflowing with tons of money to spend in free agency, but they should feel reasonably confident in their ability to poach some competition on the open market. It would behoove Eric DeCosta to set his sights on one of these three veterans for either increased depth or a possible starting role.

3. Phil Haynes

Haynes has been jumping between the starting lineup and the bench quite frequently over the last five years, all of which he spent with the Seattle Seahawks. If the Ravens like their starting pair, the best option forward would be affirming their spot by signing a backup.

Haynes spent most of last season as the Seahawks' left guard, and he has played over half of Seattle's snaps in each of the last two seasons. Haynes played a small part in Geno Smith's resurgence by serving as part of an offensive line that kept him upright.

Haynes is an addition who would protect against Vorhees specifically failing to prove himself as a starting left guard in the league. Entering the NFL at 25 years old, fresh off one of the worst injuries an offensive lineman can sustain, is a challenging path that needs more protection than Baltimore's current depth chart allows.

Playing alongside one of the best centers in the league in Tyler Linderbaum and a left tackle in Stanley who can still get it done when his body allows it could make Haynes better than an inexperienced, uneven unit in Seattle. A change of scenery could do wonders for Haynes as a player.
