QUARTERBACKS

7 Chris Redman

Ht: 6-3 Wt: 223 Age: 24 Year: 3

College: Louisville Acquired: D3 '00

From third string to starter, Redman will have ample opportunity to keep the job.

11 Jeff Blake

Ht: 6-0 Wt: 210 Age: 31 Year: 11

College: East Carolina Acquired: UFA '02

Former Pro Bowl player gives Ravens viable option if Redman struggles.

12 Wes Pate

Ht: 6-2 Wt: 228 Age: 23 Year: Rookie

Athletic passer who rushed for 423 yards as sophomore.

9 Cleo Lemon

Ht: 6-2 Wt: 226 Age: 22 Year: Rookie

College: Arkansas State Acquired: FA '02

Should have interesting battle with Pate to be the third quarterback.

RUNNING BACKS

31 Jamal Lewis

Ht: 5-11 Wt: 231 Age: 22 Year: 3

College: Tennessee Acquired: D1 '00

Coming off knee surgery for second time. If Lewis is limited, season is shot.

29 Chester Taylor

Ht: 5-11 Wt: 213 Age: 22 Year: Rookie

College: Toledo Acquired: D6 '02

Favorite to be Lewis' backup. Rushed for 4,721 yards, 55 TDs in college.

33 Tellis Redmon

Ht: 5-11 Wt: 210 Age: 23 Year: Rookie

College: Minnesota Acquired: FA '02

With reliable hands, he could be the third-down, long-yardage back.

35 Derek Homer

Ht: 5-8 Wt: 197 Age: 24 Year: 1

College: Kentucky Acquired: FA '02

Had a good training camp with Ravens last year. Intense practice player who should get more carries in the preseason.

23 Dameon Hunter

Ht: 5-11 Wt: 221 Age: 23 Year: Rookie

College: Utah Acquired: FA '02

Could fill the backup fullback spot.

FULLBACKS

39 Alan Ricard

Ht: 5-11 Wt: 237 Age: 25 Year: 2

College: NE Louisiana Acquired: FA '00

Patience the past two seasons will pay off with a starting role.

41 Sean Gregory

Ht: 5-11 Wt: 214 Age: 23 Year: Rookie

College: Georgia Tech Acquired: FA '02

Mainstay during off-season conditioning program. Work ethic could gain him roster spot.

30 Marvin Brown

Ht: 6-0 Wt: 252 Age: 21 Year: Rookie

Showed ability in versatile offense with the Crimson Tide.

WIDE RECEIVERS

89 Travis Taylor

Ht: 6-1 Wt: 200 Age: 24 Year: 3

Will be go-to receiver for first time in NFL career.

80 Brandon Stokley

Ht: 5-11 Wt: 197 Age: 25 Year: 4

College: SW Louisiana Acquired: D4 '99

Was a non-factor at times last year. Needs to develop a rapport quickly with Redman to keep offense from sputtering.

83 Ron Johnson

Ht: 6-2 Wt: 225 Age: 21 Year: Rookie

College: Minnesota Acquired: D4 '02

Uses size well to make up for lack of blazing speed. Should find favorable matchups if used in slot.

81 Kenyon Hambrick

Ht: 6-0 Wt: 190 Age: 23 Year: 1

College: Alabama A&M Acquired: FA '01

Returned punts and kickoffs well last preseason but was one of last cuts.

17 Randy Hymes

Ht: 6-3 Wt: 211 Age: 22 Year: Rookie

College: Grambling State Acquired: FA '02

Impressive during off-season minicamps. Has great hands.

84 Javin Hunter

Ht: 5-11 Wt: 190 Age: 21 Year: Rookie

College: Notre Dame Acquired: D6 '02

Possibility to replace Jermaine Lewis as kickoff returner. Could play in four-receiver sets.

87 Lonny Mitchell

Ht: 6-1 Wt: 200 Age: 25 Year: 1

College: San Diego State Acquired: FA '02

Former college quarterback is heading into third training camp with as many teams.

13 D.J. Humphries

Ht: 6-4 Wt: 205 Age: 22 Year: Rookie

Standout basketball player scored 1,263 career college points. Played two years as a receiver.

18 Marc Lester

Ht: 6-4 Wt: 200 Age: 22 Year: Rookie

College: Morgan State Acquired: FA '02

Local player who impressed scouts with a competitive spirit during tryouts.

TIGHT ENDS

86 Todd Heap

Ht: 6-5 Wt: 252 Age: 22 Year: 2

College: Arizona State Acquired: D1 '01

His year as understudy to Shannon Sharpe should pay dividends for Ravens.

88 John Jones

Ht: 6-4 Wt: 255 Age: 27 Year: 3

College: Indiana, Pa. Acquired: FA '00

Finally gets chance to make impact in two-tight end sets.

85 Jonathan Burrough

Ht: 6-4 Wt: 256 Age: 23 Year: 1

College: New Mexico Acquired: FA '01

Practice squad player last year. Needs team to keep four tight ends to make roster.

82 Terry Jones

Ht: 6-3 Wt: 265 Age: 22 Year: Rookie

College: Alabama Acquired: D5 '02

Coaches love his blocking, a strength not always associated with Ravens tight ends.

10 Joshua Bright

Ht: 6-5 Wt: 235 Age: 22 Year: Rookie

Only offensive player without a question heading into training camp.

64 Edwin Mulitalo

Ht: 6-3 Wt: 340 Age: 27 Year: 4

College: Arizona Acquired: D4 '99

Makes switch back to college position of tackle. Even if he struggles early, he will be better than the play at this position last season.

62 Mike Flynn

Ht: 6-3 Wt: 300 Age: 28 Year: 5

College: Maine Acquired: FA '97

Versatile player who might have to switch back to guard after playing all last year at center.
