These Baltimore players will be in for a rude awakening

While the Baltimore Ravens have already said goodbye to many of their veteran players in preparation for the 2024 NFL Draft, their surplus of draft picks means that even more of their fringe roster players will be put on high alert as competition for limited roster spots starts to heat up.

On top of the fact that Baltimore, who often seems to wait until the last few stages of free agency to start adding key contributors, will bring in some veterans to plug some holes after the initial wave of departures, the draft will bring even more hungry players who could unseat incumbents.

The Ravens have developed a reputation for some very intense training camp battles, as multiple late-round picks and undrafted free agents will lock horns like two clashing rams as they try to make the final roster. The spirit of competition will be in the air once again once the NFL Draft goes down.

These four Ravens players might need to gear up for the fight of their football lives in the offseason. With the Ravens projected by many to add a cornerback, wide receiver, and offensive lineman at various stages of the 2024 NFL Draft, those positions could set the stage for some ferocious competition.

4 Baltimore Ravens who won't make the 53-man roster in 2024

WR Tylan Wallace

The Ravens spent a fourth-round pick on Wallace with the hope the former Oklahoma State star would eventually become a solid vertical threat, but he has been nothing more than a garden-variety special teams player. The heroic punt returner has just seven catches in three seasons, and it seems like Baltimore will replace him in the 2024 NFL Draft.

OG Tashawn Manning

Manning was an unusual free agent signing when the Ravens picked him up from Kentucky, as his last year of tape keeping Will Levis upright was wildly inconsistent. With some new faces coming in via the draft, Manning will need a tremendous preseason to save his skin and earn a roster spot over a late-round pick.

DT Bravvion Roy

A space-eating defensive tackle who has had a tough time finding work since Matt Rhule (his coach at Baylor) was let go by the Carolina Panthers, the contract extension given out to star lineman Justin Madubuike and expected enhanced role offered to former third-rounder Travis Jones gives Roy even fewer opportunities to impress Zach Orr and this new defensive staff.

CB Jalyn Armour-Davis

The Ravens will likely add a defensive back in the 2024 NFL Draft, meaning it is unlikely that both Armour-Davis and fellow 2022 fourth-rounder Damarion Williams will both stick around. Given how Williams managed to put some solid tape together in 2022 before his injury troubles, JAD might be on the chopping block after playing in just 78 defensive snaps during the last two seasons.
