The Baltimore Ravens still have more additions to make but for the team to truly bounce back from a disappointing season they need some of their young players to develop.
Based on the moves that have already occurred, it’s clear that some Ravens will have the opportunity to earn more playing time and even starting jobs by the time training camp rolls around, and this slideshow breaks down six players with opportunities to break out in 2014.
For some, like second-year players Arthur Brown, Kyle Juszczyk and Brandon Williams, it is merely the next stage of their development as relatively high draft picks as they have a year of professional experience under their belts.
On the contrary, there are other players for whom this opportunity was not guaranteed. That is certainly true for former seventh-round pick DeAngelo Tyson, who has had to fight for his roster spot and will not see the fruits of his labor.
Make no mistake, however. These players will not be handed more snaps—that’s just not head coach John Harbaugh’s way. All they are guaranteed is the opportunity to prove themselves, and these six players will do just that by the end of the offseason.
