Draft weekend is officially in the rearview mirror and the Baltimore Ravens now look ahead to the 2019 season.
Here's the latest news surrounding the team.
1. With the conclusion of the 2019 NFL Draft comes NFL Draft grades. The Ravens selected eight players in six rounds, addressing most of their biggest needs on offense and defense, but how do analysis feel about their selections?
Even Fansided's Rucker Haringey listed the Ravens as one of the top five teams that won the NFL Draft.
2. The Ravens will be battling to defend their AFC North title this fall, and with the additions the Cleveland Browns made in the offseason it's primed to be just as good a battle as Sunday's Game of Thrones.
Bleacher Report put together their post-NFL draft power rankings and the Ravens are sitting third in the AFC North and 19th overall.
"If the Ravens can still get pressure on opposing quarterbacks this year despite those losses and Jackson improves as a passer, the Ravens will be a force to be reckoned with in their division," Bleacher Report wrote. "But if the defense backslides and Jackson's development stalls, the Ravens could also be a prime candidate to regress in 2019."
3. One of first-year general manager Eric DeCosta's goals this offseason was to keep the Ravens in good financial standing for the 2019 season and beyond. The NFLPA released their public salary cap report and Baltimore has $15,099,481 in cap space to use at their disposal.
It will cost the Ravens an estimated $6,691,942 to sign their rookie class, according to Over The Cap, leaving the Ravens with money to spend in the second wave of free agency.
