The Baltimore Ravens compiled yet another solid collection of new additions after the 2024 NFL Draft brought multiple future starters in Clemson's Nate Wiggins and Washington's Roger Rosengarten to town.

These youngsters are joining one of the best teams in the league, as Lamar Jackson and new running back signing Derrick Henry will try everything in their power to push Baltimore past the mighty Kansas City Chiefs and assert themselves at the top of the AFC. All 53 players on the roster will need to play a role in their success.

The Ravens' 53-man roster is still far from being finalized, especially with so many offseason workouts and preseason games. At this moment in time, however, the Ravens have a very clear picture of what their 53-man roster could look like.

Baltimore Ravens 53-man roster predictions after 2024 NFL Draft

Quarterback (3): Lamar Jackson, Josh Johnson, Devin Leary

Jackson is the starter (duh), but quotes from Harbaugh seem to hint that Johnson will begin the year as the backup quarterback while Leary stays at third string. Leary's arm is good enough to keep on the roster and worth developing.

Running Back (5): Derrick Henry, Justice Hill, Keaton Mitchell, Rasheen Ali, Pat Ricard

Henry is the top dog (duh, again), but the race for his backup job is wide open. The consistent Hill, speedy Mitchell, and elusive Ali could all make a case to take some carries away from the older back. Ricard will still be on the team as a fullback.

Zay Flowers will be a key part of the Baltimore Ravens 53-man roster

Wide Receiver (6): Zay Flowers, Rashod Bateman, Nelson Agholor, Devontez Walker, Deonte Harty, Tylan Wallace

Flowers, Bateman (who was recently extended), and Agholor figure to be the starters, but Walker has more than enough speed and downfield playmaking to evolve into a solid No. 3 target for Baltimore. Harty will be the team's top returner, while Wallace will be in a fight to stick around for one more season in Baltimore.

UDFA to watch: Dayton Wade, Ole Miss

Tight End (3): Mark Andrews, Isaiah Likely, Charlie Kolar

Andrews, should he stay healthy, will reassert himself as one of the best tight ends in the league in 2024. While Kolar hasn't shown a ton in the pros, Likely has evolved into an elite TE2 who could start for many teams across the league.
