Eric Weddle, Mike Wallace headline changes in Ravens' depth chart

A week into free agency, here is a projected depth chart for the Baltimore Ravens:


QB: Joe Flacco (injured), Ryan Mallett

RB: Justin Forsett, Buck Allen

FB: Kyle Juszczyk

WR: Steve Smith Sr., Kamar Aiken

WR: Mike Wallace, Breshad Perriman

TE: Ben Watson, Crockett Gillmore (injured), Maxx Williams

LT: Eugene Monroe, James Hurst

LG: John Urschel, Ryan Jensen

C: Jeremy Zuttah, John Urschel

RG: Marshal Yanda, Leon Brown

RT: Rick Wagner, De'Ondre Wesley

Outlook: The big battles will be at running back and left guard. Coach John Harbaugh didn't endorse Forsett as the team's primary back, which means it will be an open competition with Buck Allen. With Kelechi Osemele gone, the Ravens will choose between Urschel, who started at guard in the 2014 playoffs, and Jensen, who finished last season as the starting left guard. Monroe is penciled in at left tackle, but Baltimore could replace him with a high draft pick (Ronnie Stanley has been linked to them in the first round). The two free-agent additions, Wallace and Watson, are the other changes to the starting lineup after Baltimore invested $7.5 million in guaranteed money in them.


DT: Timmy Jernigan, Kapron Lewis-Moore

NT: Brandon Williams, Carl Davis

DE: Lawrence Guy, Brent Urban

OLB: Terrell Suggs, Brennen Beyer

ILB: C.J. Mosley, Albert McClellan

ILB: Zachary Orr, Arthur Brown

OLB: Elvis Dumervil, Za'Darius Smith

LCB: Shareece Wright, Kyle Arrington

SS: Eric Weddle, Matt Elam

FS: Lardarius Webb, Kendrick Lewis

RCB: Jimmy Smith, Will Davis

Outlook: There are two openings in the starting lineup after Baltimore released inside linebacker Daryl Smith and defensive end Chris Canty. Orr split time with Smith toward the end of last season, which should make him the early frontrunner. But there's a good chance that the Ravens will address inside linebacker early in the draft (UCLA's Myles Jack is a candidate at No. 6 overall). Guy started six games for Canty last season, but Urban will be given a chance to unseat him. The safety position has been revamped with the signing of Weddle and the move of Webb from cornerback.
