Outlook: Regardless of how Rice's legal issues play out, the Ravens are prepared to be without the three-time Pro Bowl running back for a couple of weeks of the season. It would be surprising if he was not assessed a suspension by the league. Pierce had a disappointing second season, and while he should be healthy enough to be full go by training camp, he's yet to prove that he can carry the load and he still struggles out of the backfield and in blitz pickup. The Ravens had the worst rushing season in franchise history last year and they really struggled in short-yard situations. A big, physical back, like Hyde or Williams, would be a welcome addition as the Ravens look to return to a punishing, downhill running attack. Last year marked the first time in 50 years that a running back was not selected in the first round and draft pundits feel like that will likely happen again this year. That could allow the Ravens to choose between a host of talented backs in the middle rounds. It would be a nice story for the Ravens to keep West home, but the former Towson star has attracted a ton of interest.
