Happy training camp! The Castle is buzzing as the Ravens are back in action to prepare over the next month for the 2021 season. Lets take a bird’s eye view of what the final 53-man roster could look like as we watch Day 1 of camp.
Lock: (1) Lamar Jackson
The franchise, the MVP, and the soon-to-be check casher. Lamar is locked into this spot for a long time in Baltimore.
TC & Preseason pending: (1-2) Trace McSorley, Tyler Huntley
Who will be Lamar’s back-up, Trace (Unitas) McSorley, Tyler Huntley, or both? The fellas on the Beatdown Podcast put it pretty well: if you needed a spot start, Trace McSorley would probably be the guy called on. He has that Moxy you look for in a backup quarterback, similar to a Taylor Heinicke. On the other hand, Tyler Huntley has a slighter higher ceiling and a skillset that more resembles Lamar in this offense. So unless one of these two really separates themselves in camp and shines in pre-season action, both will probably be on the 53.
Running Backs (3)
Locks: (3) J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards, Justice Hill
J.K. Dobbins is now a focal point of the offense. Gus “Bus” Edwards just secured a nice little payday as an important complementary role to both Dobbins & Jackson in the rushing attack. Justice Hill provides some juice in a pinch as the 3rd running back. He also serves as one of the best gunners
