The countdown until the Baltimore Ravens get back to training camp is on. While we countdown, we are looking at the best players on the roster. These are the players who will impact what happens the most and the players who are the least replaceable. We into the top 53, with number 52, punter Jordan Stout.
Baltimore Ravens 2023 roster ranking: No. 52 Jordan Stout
The special teams assets are some of the toughest players to rank, and Jordan Stout was no different. He is a former fourth-round pick entering his second season in the NFL. The signal of a fourth-round pick shows that the team has high hopes for Stout.
However, he was not very good as a rookie. The Ravens pride themselves on special teams value, and they were losing a bit with Stout in 2022. He ranked 26th out of the qualified punters last year. So, he enters 2023 with the hope that he will improve.
The Baltimore Ravens are one of the best teams in the NFL when it comes to scouting, developing, and utilizing special teams players to the best of their abilities. This gives you hope that Stout will take a big step forward this season. However, at this point, his skill set looks replaceable.
That is what pushes him so low on this list. Beyond that, the Baltimore Ravens roster is tight at the bottom. There are a lot of position battles, and some players who currently may be ranked higher may not even make the roster, but they are in such a tough race as we stand.
This includes spots like cornerback and offensive line. So, overall, you may be able to make the case that Stout is more valuable than some of the players in the 50s. However, his performance last year, combined with the depth at multiple positions, makes it easy to settle him just inside the top 53, but not much higher, until he proves more.
