There are many ways to build a team, and free agency is certainly one key component.

General Manager Ozzie Newsome made a key move by re-signing left tackle Eugene Monroe on Tuesday within an hour of free agency opening.

But a look at the current Ravens roster shows Baltimore is built much more through the draft.

Of the 46 players currently on the roster, 36 were originally acquired via the draft, eight through free agency and two via trade.
