1. TE Charlie Kolar

The Ravens thought so highly of Kolar when they picked him No. 128 overall in the 2022 NFL Draft that the Iowa State star was selected ahead of Coastal Carolina's Isaiah Likely at No. 139. Through two seasons, Likely has become arguably the best TE2 in the league, while Kolar hasn't done much.

Kolar has caught just 11 passes for 136 yards and one touchdown despite the Mark Andrews injury last year giving him a chance to strut his stuff. Considering Kolar was regarded as a poor blocker in college, his receiving skill was supposed to be his meal ticket. A healthy Andrews in 2024 could spell doom for Kolar.

Charlie Kolar might not make the Baltimore Ravens

Kolar's biggest competition for the TE3 spot might be Scotty Washington, a converted wide receiver who profiles as someone who could make an impact as a pass-catcher. Baltimore may also choose to go into the season with Andrews and Likely as the two tight ends and fullback Pat Ricard in his traditional role. Kolar needs to show that he has made improvements.

Part of the problem with Kolar is the fact that he is an inferior receiver when compared to both Andrews and Likely, yet not good enough as a blocker to get on the field. The Ravens will likely give him one more shot to prove himself, but Kolar can't assume a third season in Baltimore is locked in.
