Baltimore Ravens Roster 2018 Ravens Roster

8-6, 2nd AFC North

9:05 pm UTC, 12/23

The Ravens have been a team that is throwing players at the wall and seeing what sticks. That is sort of the case here again. Running back has been a committee approach, but Alex Collins, Buck Allen, and Kenneth Dixon are the three backs all competing for snaps. There is speculation that Baltimore is getting tired of Joe Flacco. Lamar Jackson was a late draft pick in the first round, and is going to be someone who pushes Flacco throughout the season. If he struggles, do not be surprised to see Jackson get some time. The Ravens wide receivers improved a little bit by adding Michael Crabtree, John Brown, and Willie Snead. Brown has had health issues, and if Snead is the getting passed on again by players, then this will not be a good passing offense yet again. Baltimore drafted two tight ends, which is no shocker as they drafted tight ends in each of the last two drafts, yet none have worked out just yet.

Flacco Feeling the Pressure

While a 9-7 record may seem like a success story, ties within the conference led to the elimination of playoff hopes for the Ravens in 2017-18. This posted record left much for the team to hang their hat on. The team faced a treacherous strength of schedule average, giving a few perennial playoff teams a run for their money. Battling through adversity on the offensive side of the ball comprised the makeup of the 2017-18 team. The defense submitted 3 players to the pro-bowl, rounding out a successful season on that side of the ball.

With the offensive woes in the balance, the team needed to use the off-season to act. The wide receiving core got a major upgrade in the role-filling department. A veteran acquisition in Michael Crabtree should add some consistency to a position that has been lacking. His skill set benefits red zone looks, accrediting multiple seasons with 8 touchdowns or more. Despite age concerns, Crabtree will be a reliable target for any quarterback the team wishes to head under center. Willie Snead was a second player the team acquired this off-season. Snead has spent his career under the wing of Drew Brees in New Orleans, increasing his knowledge of the game and field awareness. He's a long-yardage guy that strives in the down and distance game. His route running capabilities will need to improve, due to his time spent within a crowded receiving group. The last player the team acquired was John Brown. Brown is a speedster and a deep-ball threat. His burst out of the gate is second to none, fitting a role once occupied by JaCoby Jones for the team. This re-vamped receiver core affords the team plenty diversity in their offensive sets.

The biggest question mark faced by the team this season is who is going to start at quarterback. The buzz within media outlets places the situation in limbo. While we are almost certain the team has their ducks in a line, we can't be certain. The team drafted Lamar Jackson earlier than expected in the draft, potentially tipping their cap to other NFL teams as to how much they like this guy. Joe Flacco won this team a Super Bowl just a few seasons ago, but the winds of change are coming due to Flacco's age. It is Flacco's job to lose as the team has gone public in saying they are willing to utilize Jackson at different positions. Either way, Jackson affords the team the opportunity to run wild cat sets and trot him out in the backfield or on the line as a receiver. The possession of his talents is something the team is looking forward to showcasing this season.

The defense is poised for a stronger return come this season. Their outspoken leader, Terrell Suggs, is returning for his 15th season in the league. His illustrious career numbers undersell his ability to vocally influence the team. He has a younger talent at his side in C.J. Mosley, who looks to be progressing at a high rate. This mentorship is the stuff of legend and an honor that was passed onto Suggs via Ray Lewis. Suggs keeps this linebacking core consistent and performing at a high level. The team also returns standout safety Eric Weddle. The only hole on the defense is at the cornerback position. The team got burned one too many times last season, and the play of Jimmy Smith and Marlon Humphrey will have to improve. They need to mesh and co-exist with one another on the field. Too many miscommunications and errors marked crucial defeats for the team last season. If they can subdue their ego and let their play overcome off-field mindsets, this secondary could help keep contests within reach.
