The Baltimore Ravens set the 53-man roster for the first time. It is important for fans to remember that there will be plenty of changes, starting about 20 hours after the initial cuts were made. Still, it is worth looking at the initial view of the roster and see where things will change from here.

Quarterback (2)

Lamar Jackson

Tyler Huntley

There were questions about Josh Johnson making the team, and he may even make it after the team places Huntley on the short-term IR.

Running Back/ Fullback (5)

J.K. Dobbins

Gus Edwards

Justice Hill

Keaton Mitchell

Patrick Ricard

Keaton Mitchell is another short-term IR candidate, but for now, he makes it on the initial 53-man roster, which is impressive for a UDFA rookie.

Wide Receiver (6)

Nelson Agholor

Rashod Bateman

Odell Beckham Jr.

Devin Duvernay

Zay Flowers

Tylan Wallace

This was pretty expected. Tylan Wallace made it over Laquon Treadwell, who said he will get back to the practice squad with the Ravens.

Tight End (3)

Mark Andrews

Charlie Kolar

Isaiah Likely

This had been locked in for a bit.

Offensive Line (9)

Malaesala Aumavae-Laulu

Ben Cleveland

Daniel Faalele

Tyler Linderbaum

Patrick Mekari

Morgan Moses

Kevin Zeitler

John Simpson

Ronnie Stanley

The question was mainly whether they would keep Sam Mustipher as the tenth offensive lineman or not. Ben Cleveland was also close to being on that roster edge.

Defensive Line (9)

Broderick Washington

Jadeveon Clowney

Malik Hamm

Travis Jones

Justin Madubuike

David Ojabo

Odafe Oweh

Michael Pierce

Tavius Robinson

The Baltimore Ravens kept just four interior defensive linemen, but both Brent Urban and Angelo Blackson did not need to clear waivers, so it would be easy for both to circle back after the team places a few players on short-term IR.

Linebacker (5)

Malik Harrison

Del'Shawn Phillips

Patrick Queen

Trenton Simpson

Roquan Smith

Del'Shawn Phillips seemingly locked a spot down a few weeks ago.

Defensive Back (11)

Ar'Darius Washington

Damarion Williams

Jalyn Armour-Davis

Ronald Darby

Kyle Hamilton

Marlon Humphrey

Arthur Maulet

Brandon Stephens

Geno Stone

Marcus Williams

Rock Ya-Sin

The Baltimore Ravens kept an unprecedented eight cornerbacks, and they still cut rookie draft pick Kyu Blu Kelly. Both Pepe Williams and Arthur Maulet are IR candidates, so they will get some defensive line depth by losing cornerback depth.
