3. The Baltimore Ravens rookies have a lot to gain

It is so easy to list every draft pick for the preseason because this is their debut. So, we will just lump them as one player. Zay Flowers will easily be the most exciting player to make his debut. How does the speed look, does he make a game-breaking play on limited touches?

Trenton Simpson is still behind Del'Shawn Phillips on the depth chart, so you know he has work to do. That is common this early, but we will see a heavy dose of Simpson on defense this week to see how he stacks up.

Odafe Oweh will not play much, and Tyus Bowser is banged up, so the Rvaens will start Tavius Robinson and David Ojabo in most rushing situations. How does he look in that big role?

Kyu Blu Kelly is currently buried on the Ravens' depth chart. However, the depth chart is decimated with injuries, and Marlon Humphrey will not play, so this will be his prime chance to move up.

Then, arguably the second most exciting rookie happens to be one of the latest selected. Sala Aumave-Laulu is in a battle to start this season with John Simpson. Simpson may get the start, but it will be Aumava-Laulu who has a chance to earn a bigger role than Simpson, Robinson, or Kelly this weekend.

Andrew Vorhees obviously will not play, but the rest of the rookies will prominently be on display this weekend.
