D-Day has arrived, folks, and that means that we're less than 12 hours away from reaching the NFL trade deadline later today, on Halloween of all dates!

Baltimore Ravens General Manager Eric DeCosta faces crucial decisions ahead of the trade deadline and it's still unknown whether or not the franchise will go all-in on a 2023 run to the Super Bowl by putting together a package to trade for a player or not.

We know the main needs the Ravens have to address (at least to some extent): running back and pass-rushing depth.

Despite the productivity of veteran free agents Jadeveon Clowney and Kyle Van Noy, it's never too late to add some young blood to the unit. The running back situation has everything to do with J.K. Dobbins' season-ending injury, and it would be great to add a bonafide RB1 to the backfield with Gus Edwards getting relegated to a more apt RB2 role.

Financially, the team boasts fewer than $3 million in cap space, although the Ravens can open some room by restructuring contracts in their books.

As the trade deadline approaches, the Ravens are positioned to make strategic moves to bolster their roster and enhance their competitiveness in the league to become a legitimate, undisputable contender ahead of January's postseason.

Here are four players we expect Baltimore to trade for during Tuesday, with at least one of them virtually guaranteed to end up in the Ravens roster by 4 p.m. ET's trade deadline. Or so we hope!
