The Ravens' roster is looking as deep as ever after the draft,

3 of 3

Linebacker (4): Roquan Smith, Trenton Simpson, Malik Harrison, Chris Board

While the Ravens did choose to bring Harrison back, all signs point to Simpson becoming a starter after the departure of Patrick Queen. He'll slide in as a starter alongside Smith, an All-Pro linebacker who just may be the best linebacker in the AFC and a contender for the best linebacker in the league.

Cornerback (6): Marlon Humphrey, Nate Wiggins, Brandon Stephens, T.J. Tampa, Arthur Maulet, Damarion Williams

Humphrey has already mentioned that both he and Stephens can play the slot, paving a path for the much-hyped first-rounder in Wiggins to become a starter. Tampa's length and ball skills will help him play a role as a rookie, and Maulet was effective enough to warrant another season. In this hypothetical, Williams beat out Jalyn Armour-Davis for the final spot.

Kyle Hamilton will lead the DBs on the Baltimore Ravens' 53-man roster

Safety (4): Kyle Hamilton, Marcus Williams, Ar'Darius Washington, Sanoussi Kane

Williams is a quality safety who hist hard, but Hamilton is an All-Pro player who could reset the whole market for safeties when it comes time to ask for a payday. Washington is a nice do-it-all backup, and Kane has enough athleticism to make the final roster as a special teamer.

UDFA to watch: Beau Brade, Maryland

Special Teams (3): Justin Tucker, Jordan Stout, Nick Moore

There are no changes here. Stout is serviceable, and Moore did his job. Tucker may not be the All-Pro automatic leg he was in the past, but you can still count on one hand the number of teams who would take their current kicker over the future Hall of Fame specialist.
