    Another team forum that's been in a deep freeze.

    Looking at OurLads' current depth chart, the Ravens have three Whites listed as starting on the o-line -- LG Bradley Bozeman, RG Kevin Zeitler, and RT free agent signing Alejandro Villaneuva.

    Nick Boyle and Mark Andrews are listed as co-starters at tight end but of course Andrews is one of the premier receiving TEs in the NFL. Patrick Ricard, listed at anywhere from 280 to 300 pounds, is the fullback. Pretty much the standard Ravens depth chart year after year.

    Derek Wolfe starts at defensive end and appears to be the only melanin-challenged player on the Baltimore defense.

    This is a pretty big year for Lamar Jackson, who slipped noticeably last year. As he gets older he'll have to prove that he's at least a league average passer for a starting quarterback if he's to have a long career.

    I'll be rooting heavily against Lamar Jackson! The Ravens have invested high round draft picks in wide receivers as well as signing veteran players. There won't be enough targets to go around and Mark Andrews will again serve as the security blanket. The Ravens drafted Ben Mason who is essentially a Patrick Ricard lite. Ricard has become one of the better unsung players in the game. Curious to see how Mason turns out.

    Trace McSorely will battle yet another quotaback for the number 2 role (now that all time bust RGKnee/The Gremlin seems to be fishing for network broadcasting jobs). I found this blurb from weenieworld amusing since McSorely is actually more athletict than the quotaback Huntley but also had more rushing yards in college (1697 yds/30 TDS).

    Ravens QBs Tyler Huntley and Trace McSorley will compete for backup QB duties this summer.
    Both Huntley and McSorley saw game action in 2020 when Lamar Jackson was sidelined. Huntley, 23, completed 6-of-13 passes for 60 yards and rushed for 32 yards in the Ravens' Divisional Round loss to the Bills. The team then signed him to a futures contract in January. A mobile quarterback who rushed for 1,146 yards in three years as Utah's starter, Huntley allows Baltimore's offense to operate similarly to how it runs with Jackson at the helm. McSorley -- who completed three of ten attempts for 90 yards and a touchdown last year -- is a more traditional pocket passer. Huntley's rushing upside gives him some fantasy appeal in deeper superflex formats in case Jackson misses time in 2021.

    6 starters for Baltimore, I guess we've seen worse?! Agreed cheering against Eraserhead and Harbaugh.

    McSorely is another Young White QB that's in a good position roster wise.
