As we count down until the Baltimore Ravens report to training camp, we count down the Baltimore Ravens roster. This will look at each player on the roster and decide how valuable their performance will be to the 2023 season. We will be looking only at the 2023 season lens, so players with upside down the road or past stars may be lower.
As we keep going down the list we are at number 86, Jeremy Lucien, a cornerback.
Baltimore Ravens roster ranking: No. 86 CB Jeremy Lucien
Jeremy Lucien started his career at UConn. However, after he struggled early into his career, a strong 2021 season saw an offer to transfer to Vanderbilt. Lucien spent the year in the SEC, and that may have helped get him on the radar of NFL teams. The issue is that he struggled with the jump in competition, so he remained undrafted.
Lucien comes into the NFL at 6-foot, and just about 200 pounds. It is a solid size, but the issue is that he ran over a 4.6 in the 40 during his pro day. Cornerbacks who run like that do not last long.
The other reason Lucien is so far down this list is that the roster is wide open at cornerback, but it is deep for players like Lucien. Across from Marlon Humphrey is Rock Ya-Sin. Behind them is Kyu Blu Kelly, Trayvon Mullen, Jalyn Armour-Davis, and Daryl Worley and that does not mention slot options such as Pepe Williams and Kevon Seymour.
The reality is that none of these names are keyed into being trusted starters, but all of these names have more experience or team buy-in from the front office compared to Jeremy Lucien.
There will always be the chance that Lucien puts on a show at training camp and finds himself on the roster. However, at this point, we would view a solid season as Lucien being able to make it to the Baltimore Ravens practice squad.
