The Baltimore Ravens finish training camp Tuesday at the Under Armour Performance Center in Owings Mills, Maryland. Teams must reduce their roster to 75 players on Sept. 1 and get down to the 53-man limit by Sept. 5.
As camp ends, here’s a 53-man roster projection:
Wide receivers (6): Steve Smith Sr., Breshad Perriman, Kamar Aiken, Marlon Brown, Michael Campanaro, Darren Waller (cut: Jeremy Butler, DeAndre Carter, Tom Nelson, Aldrick Robinson, Daniel Brown, Trent Steelman). Comment: Waller edges out Butler, who hasn't been as impressive as he was in the spring.
Tight ends (3): Crockett Gillmore, Maxx Williams, Nick Boyle (PUP: Dennis Pitta; IR: Allen Reisner; cut: Konrad Reuland). Comment: It's looking like Pitta will remain on PUP to start the season, which means he'll miss at least the first six games.
Offensive tackles (4): Eugene Monroe, Rick Wagner, James Hurst, Jah Reid (cut: Marcel Jones, Darryl Baldwin, Blaine Clausell, De'Ondre Wesley). Comment: Reid has been one of the biggest surprises of camp, which earns him a spot.
Guards (3): Marshal Yanda, Kelechi Osemele, John Urschel (cut: Robert Myers, Leon Brown, Kaleb Johnson). Comment: The Ravens probably don't have a spot to use on a developmental pick like Myers, but they don't want to lose him by cutting him. It's going to be a tough decision.
Defensive ends (2): Chris Canty, DeAngelo Tyson (IR: Brent Urban; cut: Kapron Lewis-Moore, Christo Bilukidi). Comment: It's difficult to only go with two defensive ends, but Lewis-Moore and Bilukidi have not looked good this summer.
Outside linebackers (5): Terrell Suggs, Elvis Dumervil, Courtney Upshaw, Za'Darius Smith, Steven Means (cut: Brennen Beyer, Zach Thompson). Comment: Means gives the Ravens an additional pass rusher behind the aging Suggs and Dumervil.
Inside linebackers (4): C.J. Mosley, Daryl Smith, Albert McClellan, Zach Orr (cut: Arthur Brown, Andrew Bose). Comment: It's going to be hard for Brown to make this team. The Ravens might look to trade the disappointing second-round pick for a reserve safety.
Cornerbacks (6): Jimmy Smith, Lardarius Webb, Kyle Arrington, Tray Walker, Rashaan Melvin, Quinton Pointer (cut: Asa Jackson, Chris Greenwood, Tramain Jacobs, Cassius Vaughn). Comment: Pointer gets the nod over Jackson because he's had a better camp and is more dependable.
