At the moment, running back is quite the conundrum for Baltimore. It is mostly due to the fact that J.K. Dobbins is sitting out and awaiting a new contract. Just a few days ago, the Ravens went out and signed veteran Melvin Gordon, who appeared in 10 games for the Denver Broncos last season. So far, Gordon has actually been pretty impressive in camp, proving he still has some left in the tank.

With Dobbins on the sideline, it's Gus Edwards who figures to be the starter until that situation gets figured out. Edwards is familiar with the Ravens, obviously, after having been here for his entire career dating back to 2018. Behind Edwards is veteran Justice Hill, who is also a valuable backup when healthy. Both of these guys figure to make the team, and if Gordon continues to perform well, he could too.

That leaves the undrafted rookie Keaton Mitchell as possibly an odd man out, and he'll especially stand no chance if Dobbins' situation is resolved before the final cuts happen. Mitchell is an undersized, but electric, back out of East Carolina and can be used in the passing game or even on special teams. His potential was once pretty exciting, but with the addition of Gordon, it makes things a lot tougher for Mitchell and his quest to make this team.
