We’re not quite sure what to make of Means’ chances to make the squad just yet. He was selected in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Although being in the league for two seasons, Means has only appeared in 11 games and made just 6 tackles. He has yet to record a sack in a professional career. So why is he even on this list? It’s because of his potential.

Means was pretty dominant in his college career at the University of Buffalo. He recorded 185 tackles, 29.5 for a loss, 18.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, two interceptions, and five blocked kicks in his career.

Means is looking for a fresh start with the Ravens and his pass-rushing ability could be what ultimately earns him a roster spot. Getting the opportunity to learn behind Pro Bowlers like Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil may serve him well. He surely won’t beat out Courtney Upshaw, but he might have to outplay fourth-round pick Za’Darius Smith to make it.
