2. Isaiah Likely (Tight End)

Another pass catcher that Baltimore will likely build around moving forward is Isaiah Likely. The tight end was selected by the Ravens in the fourth round of the 2022 NFL Draft.

Obviously, Mark Andrews is still the top tight end for the team, but Likely has shown that he’s ready to be featured in the offense as well, and that could happen as soon as this upcoming season.

Playing in 16 games as a rookie last year, Likely caught 36 passes for 373 yards and three touchdowns. The bulk of his production came when Andrews was dealing with an injury. In Week 18, when he started against the Cincinnati Bengals, Likely caught eight receptions for 103 yards. That momentum should roll into this season.

With Todd Monken now running the show, both tight ends should be utilized a lot in the passing game. If Likely has improved his blocking, he should be on the field much more, and will have the chance to have a breakout season. If he excels like everyone thinks he can, the Ravens will have two dominant tight ends.
