The second-ranked rushing offense in the league is hiring a Quantitative Analyst and offered the question “Do running backs matter?” as an example project for prospective applicants.
The Ravens topped the league with 547 rushing attempts last year, and placed second overall in rushing yards with 2,441 yards. This includes rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson’s 147 rush attempts and 695 rush yards last year as well. Jackson was the highest-ranked rushing quarterback and scored five rushing touchdowns.
Notably, the Ravens have not drafted a running back in the first three rounds of the NFL Draft since 2012, when they drafted Bernard Pierce in the third round.
As for their current depth chart, Mark Ingram II (signed as free agent this offseason), Gus Edwards (undrafted free agent from Rutgers in 2018), Justice Hill (fourth round selection in 2019 Draft) and Kenneth Dixon (fourth round selection in 2016 Draft) make up Baltimore’s backfield.
