The Ravens, along with all other NFL teams, cut their roster to 75 players today. Between now and Saturday, September 5th, the Ravens will need to decide which players will make their final 53 man roster. Luckily, the coaching staff and scouts have one more preseason game that should help them make their final roster cuts. This process is extra important to the Ravens, who have one of the leagues best scouting departments. Many good NFL players have been picked up off the Raven's practice squad. The last thing that the Ravens want to do is let a hidden gem go to another team.
The following is a graphic that includes the current 75 man roster. Obviously, there are many players that are definitely going to make the final roster. Using that, we can narrow down the current roster and try to determine which players make the final roster. Obviously, it won't be long before the final roster is determined. However, watching the last preseason game versus the Atlanta Falcons will be more interesting if we know who's fighting for their job.
Purple indicates a player that will make the final roster. Yellow indicates a player that will probably make the final roster but could possibly lose their job if another player beats him out. Tan indicates a player that is on the roster bubble and fighting for a job in the final preseason game.
With an extra spot because Rolle is on the PUP list, the final roster should look something like this:
FB: Le'Ron McClain
This is a very hard list to come up with. K.J. Gerard, Prescott Burgess, Yamon Figurs and Brandon McKinney could very easily miss the roster. K.J. Gerard is competing with Martin for Rolle's spot, and it could really go either way. I believe that Gerard has more upside, and that's why I picked him over Martin. Burgess has had an excellent preseason, but the Ravens have excellent depth at linebacker. I also kept Figurs on the roster since the Raven's receivers are banged up. The problem is that there are so many good players fighting for the last few spots on the roster.
