Before the Baltimore Ravens take the field for their preseason game, we wanted to get an initial view of what the 53-man roster will look like. Then, when we get closer to the NFL season in about a month or so, we will be able to see how it compares from then to now. So, keep an mind this is before the Ravens have done anything at training camp.

Quarterback (3): Lamar Jackson, Tyler Huntley, Josh Johnson

The new rule allowing teams to keep three quarterbacks, along with the Ravens injury history at this position, has the team keeping three this year. The only question is whether Anthony Brown makes it over Huntley or Johnson.

Running Back (5): JK Dobbins, Gus Edwards, Melvin Gordon, Justice Hill, Patrick Ricard

After the Baltimore Ravens signed Melvin Gordon, the odds of Keaton Mitchell getting on the roster hurt dramatically. Some of it was insurance for JK Dobbins, but Dobbins should be back by the start of the season.

Wide receiver (5): Zay Flowers, Rashad Bateman, Odell Beckham, Nelson Agholor, Devin Duvernay

Do the Baltimore Ravens keep a sixth wide receiver? If they do keep an extra running back and quarterback, they may not. With this much depth, it makes sense as well.

Tight End (3): Mark Andrews, Isaiah Likely, Charlie Kolar

There are not many options threatening here. You can probably put Patrick Ricard here as a fourth tight end because he will be the best blocker on the line.

Offensive Line (10): Ronnie Stanley, Morgan Moses, Patrick Mekari, Daniel Faalele, Ben Cleveland, Tyler Linderbaum, Kevin Zeitler, John Simpson, Sala Amuave-Laulu, Sam Mustipher

There are questions about who will start at guard and whether guys such as Faalele or SAL will play guard or tackle, but the ten should be pretty set, at least as we enter training camp.

Defensive Line (5): Justin Madubuike, Broderick Washington, Travis Jones, Michael Pierce, Brent Urban

Angelo Blackson will be right on the edge as the sixth defensive lineman. The Ravens will be thin here, but they have depth at linebacker and cornerback.

Edge rushers (4): Tyus Bowser, Odafe Oweh, David Ojabo, Tavius Robinson

The Baltimore Ravens could sign a veteran here, but Kyle Van Noy came and left without a deal. If Tavius Robinson can show enough, and Tyus Bowser is healthy for the start of the year, they can be set here.

Linebackers (5): Patrick Queen, Roquan Smith, Trenton Simpson, Malik Harrison, Josh Ross

The question here is whether Josh Ross, Kristian Welch, or DelShawn Phillips makes the roster as the fifth linebacker. The team could also just keep four and then add extra help on the defensive line.

Cornerbacks (6): Marlon Humphrey, Rock Ya-Sin, Pepe Williams, Trayvon Mullen, Arthur Maulet, Kyu Blu Kelly

There are a lot of questions surrounding the depth here. Jalyn Armour-Davis, Daryl Worley, and Ar'Darius Washington are probably the biggest names missing, but the other question is whether they keep six or if they cut one of the names above and add somewhere like the defensive line. Maulet was just signed, but he is the clear backup slot and may even make the roster ahead of PePe Williams.

Safety (4): Kyle Hamilton, Marcus Williams, Geno Stone, Brandon Stepehns

This group seems pretty locked in.

Specialists (3): Justin Tucker, Jordan Stout, Nick Moore
