Projected Starters

The Ravens must replace starters at both guard spots and right tackle, which will be a major storyline this summer. Linderbaum made the Pro Bowl in his second season and is the anchor up front from his center position. Stanley enters training camp healthier than he's been since 2020 and believes he can return to being a premier left tackle. The other three spots are up for grabs. Vorhees (left guard), Cleveland (right guard) and Rosengarten (right tackle) may be the favorites. But Faalele, Jones and Aumavae-Laulu are challenging for starting spots, while Mekari is a valuable backup at all five positions and can start if needed.

Best Battle

Rosengarten, a second-round pick, must prove he's ready to start at right tackle, and if he doesn't, the Ravens have other options. Jones and Faalele can play either guard or tackle, and the Ravens could still opt to sign a veteran. Among the three starting offensive line positions that are undecided, right tackle may be the toughest to predict.

Under the Radar

Jones isn't getting a lot of buzz, but the Ravens signed the veteran in March for good reason. He has experience. Jones started 24 games during his four years in Arizona and Houston. He's bulked up and has position flexibility. Jones will be a prime contender for one of the open starting spots.
