Five for Friday: Positions where depth is an issue for Ravens
A healthy squad for the Ravens means we get a full view of the team's roster, and thus, depth at the start of training camp. With different units rotating in and out of practice, it's clear to see where the Ravens would experience the biggest downgrade if second- or third-teamers were suddenly forced into the lineup. This week's Five for Friday hits on five positions where the Ravens might not feel wonderful about their depth entering training camp.

The Ravens are going to need more than one tight end this year, and realistically, they only have two on the roster who are true pass-catchers -- Dennis Pitta and veteran Owen Daniels, signed in the offseason from Houston. Tight ends thrive in Gary Kubiak's offense, but behind them are block-first players like rookie Crockett Gillmore (pictured) and a host of unheralded backups. The Ravens' offense had many issues last year, but losing Pitta was a huge blow. Even if Kubiak improves the scheme, one injury at tight end could limit what they can do.
