Early Roster Prediction – Offense

With a week of camp just about in the books, it’s time to start thinking about how the roster will shake out when final are cuts are made in a month.  I think the Ravens will keep 25 players on offense, 25 on defense and 3 on special teams.  That number might fluctuate, but that is my guess right now.

Here is my offensive prediction:

QB – 3 – Flacco, T. Smith, Beck

RB – 3 – R Rice, McGahee, Peerman

FB – 2 – L McClain, Cook

TE – 4 – Heap, LJ Smith, Drew, E Jones

OT – 4 – Gaither, Oher, Cousins, Someone else

OG/C – 4 – Birk, Grubbs, Yanda, Chester

WR – 5 – Mason, Clayton, D Williams, Washington, Someone else

This is probably in line with most predictions at this point if they do keep 25.  The spots I think are up for grabs are the last spots for tackle, receiver and running back.  I think the running back will be Peerman since he was drafted.  I think the tackle will be someone that isn’t currently on the team or someone moved over from guard like Yanda.

The battle for the last wide receiver spot is probably the most contested battle right now.  It could actually end up being two spots with players like Marcus Smith and Justin Harper making the team depending on how many players the Ravens keep at other positions like tight end, fullback and linebacker.
