Tavon Young's status makes the CB situation a bit cloudy, but I get the feeling Cyrus Jones is making the team regardless. 

 

I think Bethel and Trawick are both 50/50 at best. I wouldn't be surprised if neither make it. Canady is firmly on the bubble too

 

Sieler and Willis are also both bubble players for me, especially with how good Ricard has looked. I give Sieler a better shot, but I think both might be cuts.

 

On offensive line I am thinking we carry 9 now with Patrick Mekari making the cut and Greg Senat on the outside looking in.

 

WR there are 4 locks with Roberts, Scott and Wesley competing for 1 maybe 2 spots. Really a toss up who makes it in right now. I'd let Roberts walk...it's hard to evaluate dead money vs potential.

 

RB I do think all 4 are kept.

Willis got hurt at practice today...doesn't sound major but any injury he has puts him closer to IR status.

That wouldn't surprise me at all given the Ravens history of using the IR to stash players

So who are guys we're considering on the bubble right now:

 

QB - Lamar, RG3

FB - Ricard

RB - Ingram, Edwards, Hill, Dixon

WR - Brown, Boykin, Moore, Snead

TE - Andrews, Hurst, Boyle 

OL - Brown, Stanely, Skura, Hurst, Yanda, Powers, Bozeman, Eluemenor 

 

CB - Averett, Carr, Humphrey, Marshall, Smith, C. Jones

S - Clark, Elliott, Jefferson, Thomas, Levine

DL - Henry, Pierce, Williams, Wormley, Mack

OLB - Judon, Williams, Bowser, Ferguson, McPhee

ILB - Onwuasor, Board, Young

 

ST - Tucker, Cox, Koch

 

IR: Young

 

There are 51 guys here, so you get to keep 2 more. 

 

McSorely, Roberts, Scott, Canady, Sieler, Willis, Alaka, Ray, Trawick, Bethel 

 

I made some adjustments to that quote above, there are 51 guys on that roster, and that's essentially moving McPhee and Dixon into starting role. You get two more of:

 

Roberts or Scott, McSorley, Canady, Sieler, Willis Alaka, Ray, Trawick, and Bethel 

 

That's tight, but if I had to bet, I'd have take Scott and one of Bethel, Trawick, McSorley, Canady (and it'd be Bethel because you give a comp pick up for him). I wonder if Canady is healthy he gets the inside track just because he's a CB over the other 3 guys. 

 

 

Phantom injury watch: Marshall and Mack. No way they cut either but I don't see a pathway for them to actually play. So they could be replaced by McSorley and Canady/Sieler/Willis.

Have they stored higher draft picks on IR in the past with “injuries”?

Jaleel Scott and DeShon Elliott last year come to mind.

N. Siragusa the year before. Kaufusi the year before that. My memory is failing me for the years prior to that, though. And I could be forgetting others.

Yea but they had actual injuries.  I mean "injuries".

 

Elliott was a 6th rounder.  Scott was a 5th rounder, right?

I think the Ravens "injuries" are all more real than you have let on...it's really a question of IR versus a couple of weeks or even maybe 1/2 a season type consideration. 

 

Elliott and Scott both had broken arms? Is that right? But I think neither was in an IR only type situation. And I don't remember their disclosure until well into the preseason if not right before the 53-man. 

 

And I'm pretty sure that's right, 5th or 6th.

Marshall might be IR'd. Scott has looked good on ST's. Not sure about Clark either. So I'd remove Marshall & Clark and add Scott & Canady and last 2 will Bethel & a LB ( Alaka ) or a player picked up on cut down day.

I think Clark is a lock on the roster, which is why I don't think Trawick has a shot...but your point about another player we're not talking about is totally reasonable, too.

If they only carry 3 ILB they better have a few on the practice squad.

This is purely speculation, but I wouldn't be surprised if they see Bowser as a fall back option if someone gets hurt.

So it sounds like the Ravens are going to sign Worrilow. So that's a near death knell for Alaka's spot. 

 

I've kind of been thinking McSorely is out, I wonder how much attention he's getting after the performance last night and if the Ravens worry they'll need to keep him...

I honestly don't understand signing a dude who just got cut and who hasn't been good for years over keeping a promising rookie. I guess it's not set in stone yet, but I hate that move if it happens.

Agree 100%.  I don't think Worrilow is a Daryl Smith-type pick up.

I think Canady really hurt his chances of making the team last night.

Yeah, seems likely that he is left off the 53.

Hopefully Worrilow is just to have a body for next week.
