They will need some help here...

 

 

Baltimore Ravens: After rookie signal-caller Lamar Jackson took over in Week 11, the Ravens threw the ball on fewer than 38 percent of their snaps. New play-caller Greg Roman has vowed more balance during Jackson's second season, but Baltimore is a solid bet to again finish top-three in rushing attempts using a stable of backs -- and Jackson's unusual talents on the ground. Coach John Harbaugh recently called Gus Edwards "our No. 1 running back," but the Ravens could use more horses. Alex Collins is out of the picture after last week's thorny arrest led to his quick release. Kenneth Dixon is entering his contract year, while Buck Allen and Ty Montgomery (both free agents) are unlikely to return. How about free agent Mark Ingram as a potential fit for one of the NFL's obvious committee jobs?

“My philosophy is winning comes first,” Roman said. “I’m not chasing stats. Job justification stats, water cooler talk – I’m not really into that. I’m into whatever helps the team to win. Along with that, though, a physical style. Meaning we’re in control. It starts up front, but it extends everywhere. It’s a mindset. [I’m] very big on approaching the game from that perspective.”

There should be plenty of running backs available on day 2-3 of the draft. I don't think it's a good idea to draft one until round 3 or 4 at the highest.

Roman knows, in order to stay ahead of the curve, he’ll have to reinvent his attack – at least to some degree. It’s always a cat and mouse game in the NFL. One team debuts something new and innovative (Jackson’s speed), opponents adjust, and then teams adjust to the adjustments.

No on  a FA back.  Agreed with later in the draft.

Not a huge Ingram fan (already have one of them); I feel and see a need for speed and wheels :)
