Locks: *Terrell Suggs, *Elvis Dumervil, *Daryl Smith, *Josh Bynes, Courtney Upshaw, Pernell McPhee, Arthur Brown, Albert McClellan, John Simon On bubble: Adrian Hamilton, Nigel Carr (above) Long shots: Bryan Hall, D.J. Bryant (Randallstown), Brandon Copeland (Gilman), Meshak Williams, PUP list or injured reserve: Jameel McClain (spinal cord contusion) Skinny: The Ravens are really deep at outside linebacker, which is why a talented yet raw pass rusher like Hamilton is on the bubble despite the fact that he's made a good impression in camp. As it stands, Dumervil and Upshaw will rotate on run and passing downs. On the inside, Smith, Bynes, Brown and McClellan are pretty established as the top four. The Ravens remain in wait-and-see mode with McClain who won't be allowed back on the field until he has a clean magnetic resonance imaging test.
