Headliners: Weaver is the most complete player of this unit and the lone starter with ideal size for his position, but needs to produce more as a pass rusher. Gregg is a tenacious, undersized scrapper adept at the leverage game.
Headliners: Lewis is a perennial All-Pro returning from shoulder surgery and is viewed by many as the best defensive player in football. Boulware is an elite pass rusher, and Thomas is versatile and mobile.
Headliners: Reed represents a cerebral, aggressive presence. McAlister is a physically-gifted franchise player whom the Ravens hope will mature into a top corner.
Headliners: Boller has been thrust into the starting lineup despite an ugly track record for rookie passers. He has tremendous arm strength and good mobility, but must overcome a total lack of experience to keep Redman off the football field.
Headliners: The coaching staff hopes Taylor will finally fulfill his promise as a former first-round draft pick and have an extremely productive season.
Headliner: Ogden is a massive All-Pro who's the obvious strength on a line that is superior on its left side and a question mark on the right.
Headliner: Although Stover has lost some distance on deep attempts, he remains one of the most accurate kickers in league history with a career 81.6 percent mark.
