Offensive Linemen (9): Eugene Monroe, Kelechi Osemele, Jeremy Zuttah, Marshal Yanda, Rick Wagner, John Urschel, James Hurst, Jah Reid and Robert Myers

The first seven are the star players from last season, who led a dominant offensive line. I am not sure about the last two spots.

Almost everyone, including our own Joe Serpico, have the Ravens putting the rookie Myers on the 53-man roster, though I question the placement of a rookie. However, he is the obvious choice when looking at the depth chart, which may be the reason Baltimore drafted him.

Defensive Linemen (7): Brandon Williams, Timmy Jernigan, Chris Canty, Carl Davis, Lawrence Guy, Brent Urban and DeAngelo Tyson

It is a different look without Haloti Ngata, which is why I see Davis and Urban making the roster. Depending on how the defense pans out this offseason, they could add another lineman to add extra depth.

The absence of Ngata will certainly change the defense, which is most likely going to be seen in who’s on the roster and who’s not.

I would not be surprised to see Christo Bilukidi make the roster with his added experience. Kapron Lewis-Moore could be a backup, but he’s relying on the offseason to show coaches what he can do after spending no time on the field. He was placed on injured reserve after being drafted in 2013.

Outside Linebackers (4): Terrell Suggs, Elvis Dumervil, Courtney Upshaw and Za’Darius Smith

No surprises here. Suggs leads the linebackers with a strong three players following him. Smith is the new guy on the squad, but his offseason has been playing out that he’ll fit right in with the veterans.

Inside Linebacker (5): Daryl Smith, C.J. Mosley, Albert McClellan, Zachary Orr and Arthur Brown

Nothing much new here as well, and no one’s been added to drastically change things. Brown sits on the outside and could be added to special teams, but he has a lot to prove.
