After cutting their roster down to 53 just a few days ago, the Baltimore Ravens have screwed in all the bolts. What that means is that they have cemented each player’s spot on the depth chart – who will start, will be the second stringer, who will be third etc.
With that being said, let’s dive right into it.
As expected, Bernard Pierce will be the starting running back in the first two games during Ray Rice‘s short suspension. Rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro lead the league in rushing during the preseason and will be slotted as the backup running back.
C.J. Mosley is listed as the starting linebacker along side Daryl Smith. Derek Cox is the third-string cornerback behind starters Lardarius Webb and Jimmy Smith. Undrafted rookie James Hurst is the backup left tackle behind Eugene Monroe and rookie safety Terence Brooks is listed as the third-string free safety behind Darian Stewart and Jeromy Miles.
