Can Michael Campanaro stay healthy?

Michael Campanaro has shown that he can be a playmaking slot receiver when he is healthy. Key phrase being when he is healthy. Campanaro had some issues with his hamstring during mini-camp last season, he missed a solid portion of the 2014 season with injuries and missed most of mini-camp with injury. If Campanaro can stay healthy in 2015 he can be a part of the Ravens offense and take the job as the Ravens return man, if not someone else will take the job.

When will Breshad Perriman take the #2 job?

Breshad Perriman will be the #2 wide receiver for the Baltimore Ravens. The only question is when. Kamar Aiken has currently been running with the first team on the offense and he's been impressive. Perriman has done some impressive work with the number ones and if he can build on that in camp and pre-season, he should be the #2 receiver at the start of the season.

How much can Rick Wagner do?

Rick Wagner says that he can participate in camp and the Ravens obviously share some of his confidence, as he has not been placed on PUP with Dennis Pitta and Terrence Brooks. But the Ravens have said that they're going to be cautious with Wagner. Wagner's status will be something to follow during training camp, as it will determine whether the best Right Tackle in football is ready to start Week One.

Have Matt Elam and Arthur Brown finally taken the next step?

Matt Elam was impressive in training camp last year, but failed to show any of it during the preseason and that carried over to the regular season. Arthur Brown was just plain invisible last year and spent most of 2014 as a healthy scratch. Both are entering a vital point in their career and both are said to be in the best condition they've ever been. If the two of them can prove it when the pads come on that will be a step towards keeping the bust label off.

Who wins the last wide receiver spots?

The Ravens have four wide receivers who are guaranteed to make the roster in 2015. The Ravens have promising receivers in Darren Waller, Michael Campanaro, DeAndre Carter, and Jeremy Butler. We know that the Ravens will carry at least six wide receivers on the roster and could carry seven, but definitely not eight. That means that at least one of those four will be out of a job come September. The battle between those four will be something to follow throughout the season.

Do any undrafted rookies make the roster?

The Ravens are one of the best teams when it comes to undrafted free agents making the roster. That tradition might be in danger this year as the Ravens have a lot of depth on the roster currently and it could be difficult for an undrafted to make it on the team. DeAndre Carter has the best shot out of any undrafted to make the team.

Who wins the last cornerback spots?

The Ravens have four cornerbacks guaranteed to make the roster. They have Cassius Vaughn, Rashaan Melvin, and Asa Jackson fighting for what will probably be two spots.
