5. Will the unknown edge rushers continue to step up?

A big story out of the first preseason game was how well the UDFA edge rushers played. Both the rookies, Kelle Sanders and Malik Hamm excelled in their preseason debut. Jeremiah Moon, a second-year UDFA, also got plenty of work.

The Ravens will not play Odafe Oweh with their track record of injuries, and Tyus Bowser is starting to seem unlikely to play in week one, let alone this week. So, David Ojabo and Tavius Robinson will probably start again, but then it will be the three UDFAs with a lot of time to work.

A real question is how much Robinson plays because the rookie UDFAs have looked better than the rookie draft pick so far. Do the Ravens want to see more of Robinson? Do they get to a point where one of the UDFAs has a better chance to make the roster than Robinson? We will see if any of them can string together strong games, or potentially get chances against better competition.
