ESPN -- Rank: 9
It's a critical time for Queen because the Ravens will have to decide whether to exercise his fifth-year option next offseason. He hasn't become the every-down middle linebacker that was originally envisioned. Queen has struggled in coverage and getting off blocks, which is why he was moved to weakside linebacker. But new defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald, who was Queen's position coach in 2020, said the game has slowed down for him. It took until Queen's third season before he broke out at LSU. The Ravens are hoping Queen can do the same this season after being Baltimore's first-round pick in 2020.

The bad news: Per TruMedia, there's no recent precedent for a team whose mascot suffered a season-ending injury going on to win the Super Bowl.
Nugget to remember: In Jackson's three seasons as a starter, the Ravens finished, in order, first, third and 11th in rushing DVOA. If they're going to reverse that trend line, they probably need a big season from J.K. Dobbins, who might not be ready when the regular season begins. It could be running back flotsam déjà vu.
