Offensive line

How many they'll keep: 9

Locks if healthy: Jeremy Zuttah (center), Kelechi Osemele (guard), Marshal Yanda (guard), Eugene Monroe (tackle), Rick Wagner (tackle), John Urschel (guard-center), James Hurst (tackle), Robert Myers (guard)

On the bubble: Ryan Jensen (center-guard), Jah Reid (guard-tackle)

Long shots: Nick Easton (center-guard), Leon Brown (guard), Kaleb Johnson (guard), Darryl Baldwin (tackle), Blaine Clausell (tackle), Marcel Jones (tackle), De'Ondre Wesley (tackle)

Skinny: A case could be made that the Ravens have never started a season with more offensive line depth and fewer questions at the position. That could change if Zuttah (hip) and Wagner (foot) aren't recovered from surgeries in time to be ready for the start of the regular season. For now though, the Ravens appear set with their top seven linemen. Myers, a massive guard out of Tennessee State, looks raw, but the Ravens aren't likely to immediately move on from a fifth-round NFL draft pick, so his spot is probably secure. That leaves one or two jobs available for a group of players that includes Reid, Jensen (a 2013 sixth-rounder) and six undrafted free agents. Reid is the top backup at right tackle, so he has the edge over Jensen, whose roster chances are hurt by Urschel's ability to play center.
