Head Coach John Harbaugh and his staff came out of the Titans game, during the playoffs, displeased with their team’s performance along the line of scrimmage. No area of the roster received more attention in the offseason than the defensive line. The Ravens hope the additions of Defensive Ends Calais Campbell and Derek Wolfe to Nose Tackle Brandon Williams can improve the pass rush and stop the run.
The Ravens emphasized power as they rebuilt their front seven in the wake of a playoff loss to the Tennessee Titans in which Derrick Henry trampled them for 195 rushing yards. Despite the defense’s overall success in 2019, the Ravens received virtually no production from their interior pass rush, and they struggled to set the edge against outside runs. Campbell, Wolfe and perhaps Madubuike and Washington should help in both areas.
