Baltimore Ravens: Predicting Final 53-Man Roster

The Baltimore Ravens have finished up the 2023 preseason with a 26-20 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, bringing their preseason record to 1-2. The attention now turns to the regular season with week one against the Houston Texans just a week away. But first the Ravens will have some tough decisions to make on who will be apart of this Ravens team in 2023.

With the roster being cut from 90 to the final 53 lets predict the Ravens final 2023 53-man roster.


QB: Lamar Jackson

QB: Tyler Huntley

QB: Josh Johnson

The Ravens have long had a tradition of keep just two quarterbacks on the final roster, but with Tyler Huntley missing a majority of the preseason with injury and Lamar Jackson missing most of the last two seasons. The Ravens feel comfortable with the veteran Josh Johnson to be the third quarterback moving forward into the season after having a strong preseason.

Running Backs

RB: Gus Edwards

RB: J.K. Dobbins

RB: Justice Hill

RB: Keaton Mitchell

Likely the biggest surprise of the group may be undrafted rookie Keaton Mitchell making the final roster. The speedy running back made the most of his opportunities this preseason. Mitchell edged out veteran Melvin Gordon and it seems highly unlikely the Ravens keep more then four running backs, opting instead for the younger Mitchell.


FB: Patrick Ricard

No surprise here, Ricard has been the leading force in the Ravens rushing attack over the last few seasons. The Ravens attempted to move Ricard to the offensive line early in training camp, but keeping Ricard at fullback will ultimately be the correct decision for the Ravens moving forward into 2023.

Tight Ends

TE: Mark Andrews

TE: Charlie Kolar

TE: Isaiah Likely

The Ravens have one of the best tight end rooms in the NFL with Mark Andrews leading the way. Likely and Kolar both showed flashes last season of what they can become and this group will be a big part in the Ravens offensive success this season.

Wide Receivers

WR: Zay Flowers

WR: Odell Beckham Jr.

WR: Nelson Agholor

WR: Rashod Bateman

WR: Devon Duvernay

WR: Tylan Wallace

Once considered the worst position group on the team has quickly transformed into the best. With the additions of Odell Beckham Jr., Nelson Agholor, and first round pick Zay Flowers this group is poised for a big season. Based on other positional needs the Ravens will likely only keep 6 wide receivers giving the final to sports to Devin Duvernay and Tylan Wallace, who had a strong preseason. That leaves James Proches as the odd man out but is a strong candidate for the practice squad.

Offensive Line

G: Kevin Zeitler

G: John Simpson

G/C: Patrick Mekari

C: Tyler Linderbaum

T: Malaesala Aumavae-Laulu

T: Ronnie Stanley

T: Daniel Faalele

T: Morgan Moses

The Ravens return most of their core offensive line in 2023, while adding several young versatile rookies. The biggest question mark this preseason is who would take the final guard spot to replace Ben Powers. John Simpson, Daniel Faalele, Malaesala Aumavae-Laulu, and Ben Cleveland all got opportunities their with John Simpson emerging from the pack. With Falale and Aumavae-Laulu’s ability to play tackle Ben Cleveland becomes the odd man out as the Ravens move on from their disappointing 2021 third-round pick


S: Kyle Hamilton

S: Marcus Williams

S: Geno Stone

S: Brandon Stephens

S: Ar’Darius Washington

CB: Marlon Humphrey

CB: Kevon Seymour

CB: Rock-Ya Sin

CB: Jalyn Armour-Davis

CB: Ronald Darby

CB: Damarion Williams

CB: Kyu Blue Kelly

With Damarion Williams and Marlon Humphrey expected to be sidelined for the start of the regular season it will be a young group in the secondary expected to make an impact early. Ar’Darius Washington impressed this preseason and the additions of Ronald Darby and Rock Ya-Sin look to be major contributors throughout the year. Cornerback Arthur Maulet who was signed before the start of training camp doesn’t appear to make the final 53-man roster as he returned to practice for the first time last week, too little to late for a position group that needs healthy bodies.


LB: Patrick Queen

LB: Malik Harrison

LB: Roquan Smith

LB: Trenton Simpson

OLB: Tavius Robinson

OLB: Odafe Oweh

OLB: David Ojabo

Roquan Smith and Patrick Queen return looking to build off their impressive second half from last season. While Odafe Oweh and David Ojabo look to become the two-headed combo that give quarterbacks fits. This linebacker group is a young group with a lot of athleticism. Undrafted rookie and Baltimore native Malik Hamm was left off the final roster, not because of his play, but rather the numbers needed at other positions. He will be a player to keep an eye on as the Ravens will definitely look to staff him on the practice squad. Tyus Bowser, who has not practiced this preseason as he deals with a knee injury. Has remained on the NFI list and will likely be left off the initial 53-man roster as he will be moved to injured reserve meaning he will miss the first four games of the regular season.

Defensive Line

DE: Brent Urban

DE: Jadeveon Clowney

DT: Justin Madubuike

DT: Broderick Washington

DT: Travis Jones

DT: Michael Pierce

With the newest addition of Jadeveon Clowney this group may be the strongest on the defense. While not a lot of sacks are to be had amongst this group it will be hard to run against with the likes of Broderick Washington, Justin Madubuike, and Michael Pierce who returns after missing nearly the entire 2022 season.


LS: Tyler Ott

K: Justin Tucker

P: Jordan Stout

Long snapper Nick Moore is lost for the season after a torn Achilles this offseason. The Ravens were fortunate however to sign a pro bowl long snapper in Tyler Ott. While special teams relies on timing through three preseason games, this unit along with the greatest kicker of all time and second year punter Jordan Stout look ready to have another historic season.
