Baltimore Ravens Offense: Depth Chart, Analysis & Draft Needs

Rich Hribar breaks down the offensive depth chart by position for the Baltimore Ravens, identifying areas where the team could improve in the upcoming 2024 NFL Draft.

Ravens Offense Infographic

Quarterback Depth Chart, Ravens:

  1. Lamar Jackson
  2. Josh Johnson
  3. Malik Cunningham

After missing crucial chunks of the 2021 and 2022 seasons, Lamar Jackson was able to stay healthy for a full season.

With Jackson on the field, the Ravens went 13-3 in the regular season.

The Ravens now have a 58-19 record in the regular season with Jackson as their starting quarterback and an 8-14 record in games he does start since drafting him in 2018.

Jackson won his second MVP Award.

He set career highs with a 67.2% completion rate and 8.0 yards per pass attempt.

His 12.0 yards per completion was his highest since his rookie season.

The Ravens are now just looking to get over the hump with more postseason success.

Splitting the postseason with a win and a loss, the team’s postseason record with Jackson is 2-4.

Jackson signed a five-year extension last offseason, which has his salary escalating and providing some restrictions that this team did not face with him on his rookie deal.

After a cap hit of $22.1 million in 2023, Jackson jumps up to $32.4 million this season and then $43.7 million, $74.7 million, and $74.7 million cap hits over the remainder of his deal.

The Ravens lost Tyler Huntley this offseason in free agency.

Behind Jackson, they have veteran Josh Johnson and project Malik Cunningham on one-year deals. The team has exclusive rights on Cunningham after 2024.

Running Back Depth Chart, Ravens:

  1. Derrick Henry
  2. Justice Hill
  3. Keaton Mitchell
  4. Owen Wright
  5. Patrick Ricard (FB)

With the Ravens already losing Gus Edwards in free agency, Keaton Mitchell suffering a late-season injury that could impact the start of 2024, and J.K. Dobbins no longer on the roster, Baltimore was aggressive in not kicking the can this season on their backfield.

This team has thrown a lot at the running back position over the past four seasons.

Their issues with retaining a healthy backfield go beyond just the ill fortune of Dobbins, as we have seen the ghosts of Devonta Freeman, Le’Veon Bell, Kenyan Drake, and Melvin Gordon log snaps for this team over the past three seasons.

With that, Baltimore added Derrick Henry on a two-year contract.

Henry turned 30 this January and is coming off a career-low 4.2 yards per carry last season with the Titans.

He also played just 53% of the snaps last season, his lowest rate in a season since 2018.

Over his previous four seasons, Henry played 64%, 66%, 71%, and 67% of the snaps.

But make no mistake, Henry was still a workhorse back.

Despite giving away more snaps in 2023, Henry still led the NFL in rushing attempts for the fourth time over the past five seasons.

When Henry was on the field, he was getting the football.

The Titans ran the ball on 58.2% of the snaps that Henry played last season.

The only running back with a higher rate who also played more than 200 snaps was Tyler Allgeier (60.6%).

If looking down the board a few pegs, Gus Edwards sported a 54.3% rate, which was the sixth highest among running backs.

Although Henry did have some peripheral decline, he also still managed to clear 1,000 yards rushing and rush for double-digit touchdowns for the sixth consecutive season.

Henry found paydirt that many times on a Tennessee team that ranked 27th in points per game (17.9) and was 26th in points per drive (1.65).

He is joining a Baltimore team that was fourth in the NFL in points per game (27.7) and sixth in points per drive (2.35).

The Ravens had 74 red zone possessions in 2023 (fifth) while the Titans had 48 (23rd), and Henry still found his way to double-digit touchdowns.

The Ravens ran the football 59.6% of the time in the red zone, which was second in the league behind the Eagles (63.0%).

Going further under the hood, Henry’s 8.2% explosive run rate was a career low.

At his age, we should expect some recoil in that area.

But Henry remained a bulldozer, ranking eight in the league in yards after contact per rush out of 49 running backs to carry the ball 100 or more times.

Henry has rarely played behind a good offensive line in his career.

Of those same 49 running backs, he was 44th in yards gained before contact in 2023.

Baltimore running backs averaged 1.59 yards before contact per rush in 2023, which was sixth in the league.

There are questions about the current state of this Baltimore offensive line, but this should be an overall upgrade in the offensive environment for Henry.

Justice Hill is coming off a career-high 112 touches and 5.3 yards per touch. He had a lock of passing situations, running 233 pass routes while the next closest running back was at 165.

Hill will concede touches with the addition of Henry but should retain that role in passing situations since Henry has always shared those opportunities with another back.

Hill is only under contract for 2024.

Keaton Mitchell looked electric with 8.7 yards per touch on his limited sample as a rookie.

Unfortunately, Mitchell tore his ACL in December.

His surgery was on December 30, which puts the start of the season right at a nine-month recovery period, but we should expect the Ravens to take his return slow.

The Ravens could add another body here given Henry’s age, Hill’s expiring contract, and Mitchell potentially not being ready to start the season. But if they do add another back, it will likely come on Day 3.

Wide Receiver Depth Chart, Ravens:

  1. Zay Flowers
  2. Rashod Bateman
  3. Nelson Agholor
  4. Tylan Wallace
  5. Deonte Harty
  6. Sean Ryan
  7. Scotty Washington

The Ravens selected Zay Flowers in the first round last spring, and he immediately led the team in receiving.

Flowers caught 77-of-108 targets for 858 yards and five touchdowns, adding a rushing touchdown to his totals.

He ended the season third among rookie wide receivers in route participation, running a route on 85.6% of the team dropbacks.

Flowers finished seventh among rookies in yards per route run (1.65) and sixth in target rate per route (20.7%).

Behind Flowers, this is the same old tale for the Ravens.

Even when they have a hit on a rookie wide receiver, they are still chasing the position overall.

The rest of this depth chart is not inspiring.

The Ravens had the opportunity to keep Rashod Bateman on a fifth-year option in 2025, but they instead signed him to a two-year extension through the 2026 season that will pay him a lot less than that option year.

Bateman did play in a career-high 16 games after two injury-filled seasons, but he only caught 32 passes for 367 yards and one touchdown.

After averaging 42.9 and 47.5 yards receiving per game over his first two seasons, Bateman averaged 22.9 yards per game last season.

Bateman ran nine fewer pass routes on the season than Nelson Agholor, who caught 35 passes for 381 yards and four touchdowns.

Agholor will turn 31 this May, failing to reach 500 yards in a season since 2020.

The only wide receiver currently on this roster who is signed beyond the 2024 season is Flowers.

With Jackson’s contract spiking, the Ravens have to go back to the well to find upside-receiving production paired with lower-end monetary commitments.
