8. Jeremy Lucien could improve on the Baltimore Ravens practice squad
Jeremy Lucien has to be an intriguing player in the eyes on the Baltimore Ravens. He was a cornerback from Vanderbilt, but the Ravens have him on track to play safety in the NFL. So far, he has made some strides.
Lucien played 139 in the preseason, some of the most of any Ravens defensive option. He also played well, arguably better than DeAndre Houston-Carson, who was released and not brought back to the practice squad. That may be why DHC wants to find a role on an active roster while Lucien is a rookie UDFA, but it still speaks to the Ravens trusting in Lucien.
The Ravens surprised some when they only kept three safeties. They had to keep eight cornerbacks, and they could technically move Brandon Stephens back to safety if they needed to. Still, they are rather thin at safety. Daryl Worley circled back to the practice squad, so this should be a redshirt year for Lucien. Still, he is not that far away, and next year, he could be much closer to making the roster as that fourth safety.
