The 2013 Baltimore Ravens have already taken the practice field as a unit, and their roster and depth chart are starting to crystallize as a result. While the on-field action must be taken with a grain of salt, it is still valuable in determining where exactly the Ravens' new additions stand in relation to their teammates.
In a lot of cases, new additions will be taking the field with the starters on opening day. Michael Huff and Matt Elam are two obvious examples in the Ravens' defensive backfield, but several other new Ravens will also get a chance at a starting job.
Still other new starters will come not from free agency or the draft, but from the Ravens' own roster. Guys like Deonte Thompson and Jimmy Smith could be looking at promotions this year.
OTAs certainly helped clarify this picture, but there is still a lot of action before an opening-day depth chart is crafted. With this in mind, here is a very early look at the 2013 Baltimore Ravens' depth chart.
