Baltimore Ravens Wide Receiver Depth Chart: Post 2023 NFL Draft
Now that the 2023 NFL draft is over we will be looking at each position and seeing how the depth chart stacks up. One position the Baltimore Ravens made plenty of moves to change up the room was wide receiver.
What does the Baltimore Ravens depth chart at wide receiver look like?
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver depth chart
X: Rashod Bateman
One question we will learn about soon from the Baltimore Ravens is how they will utilize all three wide receivers. For now, the assumption should be that Rashod Bateman will remain as the team X. Between Odell Beckham and Zay Flowers Bateman is the biggest, and also is the least likely to take any snaps in the slot. This should free those other two up to move around and be playmakers off of the football.
Z: Odell Beckham
As noted, Beckham can move in and out of the slot, but he will likely take the role as the Z wide receiver on the outside.
Slot: Zay Flowers
The question will be how much Zay Flowers plays in the slot as a rookie. He played outside for the most part at Boston College, but the team needed him to be that primary outside target. With Beckham and Bateman in the mix, it would be best to ease Flowers in by giving him slot work. He was dynamic from the slot going back to Boston College.
Nelson Agholor went from the big move of the offseason to being forgotten about very quickly. Still, when you realize that Bateman and Beckham have injury questions, and Flowers is still a rookie there will be plenty of chances for Agholor to make him impact. What helps his case is that he can play all three spots.
5. Devin Duvernay
Devin Duvernay still has special teams in his back pocket to hold him on the roster and in the top five. Beyond that, he was always better off as a gadget player than he was as a legitimate wideout, and now he should be entrenched in that role. This could be for the better for Duvernay.
6. Tylan Wallace
Tylan Wallace will be hanging onto his roster spot by a thread right now. It will be interesting to see how they view him compared to some of the other names.
7. James Proche
It is feeling like this is the end for James Proche with the Baltimore Ravens. He never made a big enough impact, and now they have enough other options on special teams.
8. Donte Demus
Most local fans want Demus to be above guys like Wallace and Proche already. There is a reason he went undrafted, and it is because injuries have taken away from what he once was. We have to wait to see if he can still make an impact in the NFL.
The names below are going to struggle to even get in the mix. Between Demus, Proche, and Wallace they probably can only keep one of those three, and it would be news if any of the names below ended up competing with the three names mentioned above.
9. Mike Thomas
10. Shemar Bridgers
11. Andy Isabella
12. Tarik Black
13. Sean Ryan
