The Ravens still have a little time left to decide who will make the final roster and there are still some questions left to be answered. BaltimoreRavens.com writer Ryan Mink joined Zinno on “Last Call” to break it all down. Wide receiver is still one of the biggest questions left to answer. Will the Ravens keep six, like last season, or will they take seven. “I wouldn’t be surprised,” said Mink.

Other positions left to answer was the other inside linebacker postion. Darryl Smith is doing a solid job at filling in for Ray Lewis, but the other position is still up for grabs. “I think Josh Bynes is going to be your starter. He’s earned it. He’s played really well,” Mink said. Rookie Arthur Brown will also see time there, especially on passing downs.
Tight end Dennis Pitta is out for the year with a hip injury and the tight end position is uncertain. Not only were there additions of Dallas Clark and rookie Matt Furstenburg, rookie fullback Kyle Juszczk could play a factor in that role as well. Mink said, “I think the wild card here is Kyle Juszczyk. If they feel like he can be their third tight end, because a major role of the third tight end is special teams.”
The Ravens roster is currently at 75 players and will have to be down by 53 right after the final pre-season weekend is over.
