2015 Depth Charts: Baltimore Ravens
• The biggest debate we had when looking at the Ravens offense was Ricky Wagner. Is it slightly generous to call him Very Good at this stage in his career? Perhaps, and that was the debate, but he was amongst the best right tackles in the league last year.
• Brandon Williams was another second year player to get the Very Good rating, with the nose tackle proving himself to be a force in the middle of the Ravens defensive line last year, outshining everyone including Haloti Ngata.
• Lardarius Webb was so up and down last year that we didn’t feel we could have him any higher than average. We know he can be better than that, but with several knee injuries in his career, we need to see him prove that once again after seeing his play slip in 2014.
• Matt Elam has perhaps been played slightly out of position, with the former first round pick seemingly better suited to a role closer to the line of scrimmage that as a deep safety or in the slot. However, his play in coverage has been so poor that we couldnt justify having him any higher.
Cornerback: Even is Lardarius Webb can get back to his best, the Ravens still need support at cornerback. The position was hurt by injuries throughout 2014, but there isn’t really a third cornerback on the roster that you would trust so it would be surprising not to see several new faces in the defensive backfield this offseason.
Wide Receiver: Do the Ravens look to bring back Torrey Smith, and if so how much will it cost to do so? A solid number two for Baltimore since arriving, he might command a price that the Ravens aren’t willing to match and, even if they do bring him back, they could do with adding another solid receiver.
Running Back: Justin Forsett has earned his pay day this offseason with an impressive 2014, and it’s easy to see why the Ravens would want him back. If he doesn’t return they are left with Bernard Pierce, who has struggled since an impressive rookie season, and the relatively untested duo of Lorenzo Taliaferro and Fitzgerald Toussaint.
