The Baltimore Ravens have just one week until they need to cut down the roster from 90 players down to 53. While there are plenty of roster locks, some players who once were thought to be locks could be looking on the outside now.
Who are players that need to turn the tides in the next week to make the Baltimore Ravens roster?
6. Can Jalyn Armour-Davis still sneak on the Baltimore Ravens roster?
Jalyn Armour-Davis will be in a tough spot when it comes to making the Ravens roster. It feels like his stock has dropped consistently from the day he was drafted through now. When he was first drafted, he was a high-upside bet from Alabama. Now, injuries are the main story.
He missed the preseason of his rookie season and then was shoved into action two weeks into the regular season. Without a preseason, he was swimming in the deep end and struggled immensely. He missed more time due to injury after being benched. Armour-Davis came back at the end of the year, but the Ravens did not trust him on the field.
Now, he was supposed to make strides in year two. Injuries have derailed his preseason yet again. What crushes him is that the opportunity for major snaps was out there and he could not get on the field. Instead, Kevon Seymour has taken the snaps and has become a candidate to make the roster.
When you look at the numbers, Marlon Humphrey will not miss enough time to do anything but keep him on the roster. Rock Ya-Sin should be back by week one and should start with Ronald Darby and Ar'Darius Washington in the slot. When you add in that Brandon Stephens will make the team, you have five cornerbacks.
The numbers say that only one more has a shot to make the roster. Is it JAD? Did Seymour pass him, or could it even be Kyu Blu Kelly? What if they just keep their top five? Is JAD a player who could clear waivers due to how quiet he has been?
