The Baltimore Ravens have made a pretty clear commitment to getting younger this season. They jettisoned some older players like safety Eric Weddle and wide receiver Michael Crabtree. They picked eight players in the 2019 NFL draft, signed a number of undrafted prospects and are now looking at a few open spots where young players will have a real shot at starting.
It’s a golden age for the Ravens in a way. They were a playoff team last year and are looking to build on that success both immediately and for the long term through their core of young talent. While cornerback Marlon Humphrey was the only Baltimore player to make PFF’s “top 25 players under 25” list, the Ravens are stacked with talent at or under 25 years old. It’s a great spot to be in as Baltimore looks to march into the next era of football and remain competitive.
Just take a look at the number of key young players the Ravens have on their roster.

QB, Lamar Jackson, 22
