Attempting to project the Ravens' 53-man roster

The Ravens' season opener is four weeks from today, so now seems like a good time to take a crack at predicting the team's 53-man roster. Coach John Harbaugh has until September 4 to whittle it down, and a lot will be decided in the Ravens' final three preseason games, but here's how I think things would shake out if Harbs had to do it today.

Think I have no clue what I'm talking about? Let me know in the comments section (and fill out your roster here to win a trip to the Ravens' "Monday Night Football" showdown against the Jets.)


Here's what I got:

Quarterbacks: Joe Flacco, Marc Bulger


Running backs: Ray Rice, Willis McGahee, Jalen Parmele, Curtis Steele

Fullbacks: Le'Ron McClain, Mike McLaughlin
