Baltimore Ravens Virtual Program: Depth Chart Analysis, X-Factors and More

The Baltimore Ravens are a team on the rise after a subpar 2013 season. For the first time in the John Harbaugh era, Baltimore didn't have a winning record after finishing 8-8 in 2013. That was also the first time in the Harbaugh era, which began in 2008, that the Ravens didn't make it to the playoffs.

It didn't come as a big shock though. Following their Super Bowl winning-season in 2012, the Ravens lost a host of key players to free agency and retirement. 

Center Matt Birk and inside linebacker Ray Lewis retired, while cornerback Cary Williams, outside linebacker Paul Kruger and inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe all left to sign lucrative deals with other teams in free agency. 

All of those players were vital to the Ravens' success in the years prior to their departures, and not adequately replacing them played a big part in the team's struggles in 2013. 

Baltimore took its lumps, and now it has reloaded and are ready to get back to its winning ways in 2014.

Here's my preview of the 2014 Baltimore Ravens.
