10. Will the Baltimore Ravens get Keaton Mitchell onto the 53-man roster?

Although the Ravens signed Melvin Gordon, and he is a notable name, it is starting to get pretty clear that if the Ravens keep a fourth running back, it would be Keaton Mitchell and not Melvin Gordon. Gordon is slammed down the depth chart and did not get in until after guys like Mitchell.

So, J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards, and Justice Hill are the locks. The question is whether they need another running back. If Dobbins is out, both Mitchell and Gordon will move up the rankings. However, with Dobbins in the lineup, all three running backs seem to have defined roles, and it is hard to find a need for a fourth.

In the case of Mitchell, he could make it on the back of his kick return abilities. Still, Devin Duvernay is one of the best kick returners in the NFL, so while it is nice that Mitchell can do that, this is not the team where that will move the needle for the Ravens.

Mitchell looks electric, and if he hits a big play, he will make it tough, but that is why we rank him 10th on the list where only five can make it.
