Early Projections for the Baltimore Ravens' Final 53-Man Roster

NFL rosters are nearly 70 percent larger right now (90 players) than they will be when the final cut is made (53 players).

Now that the draft is over, coaches can begin studying their personnel in earnest. Free agents, draft picks and veterans from last year will compete for one of the precious 53 roster spots.

It's no surprise the Baltimore Ravens wanted to get younger and more athletic, particularly on defense. Although that's a good goal to have, that goal comes with no guarantee a prospect will deliver.

On offense, the Ravens are pretty much intact. They traded Anquan Boldin, but locked up Joe Flacco on a long-term teal. They were also able to re-sign left tackle Bryant McKinnie, who can be very effective when he's "on."

In 2012, Baltimore was 17th in total defense and set a team record for points scored (398). Do the math.

Thanks to ourlads.com, we're able to get a peak at the Ravens' current depth chart. Although the final cuts are likely to be made on Aug. 30 (the day after the final preseason games are played), these next 116 days will pass easier with banter about who will make it and who won't.
