Ravens' Lorenzo Taliaferro: Working behind West
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Taliaferro mostly worked behind Terrance West throughout the Ravens' offseason program, ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley reports.

A 2014 fourth-round selection, Taliaferro has often served as Baltimore's goal-line/short-yardage back when healthy, but a foot injury limited him to just three games last season. He now finds himself on the roster bubble, with Justin Forsett, Javorius Allen and Kenneth Dixon all locks to make the team. Taliaferro's chances got a slight bump when it was announced that Trent Richardson (knee) needs arthroscopic surgery, but it appears West might be the real winner from that development. In any case, the two are likely just competing for the No. 4 spot on the depth chart, which means the battle could be determined on special teams.

Ravens' Terrance West: Working ahead of Taliaferro
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

West worked ahead of Lorenzo Taliaferro during the offseason program, ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley reports.

West, Taliaferro and Trent Richardson (knee) were expected to compete for (possibly) one roster spot, but it appears the latter may have fallen out of the competition after having arthroscopic surgery. It's actually a bit surprising that West worked ahead of 2014 fourth-rounder Taliaferro, who often served as the Ravens' short-yardage/goal-line back when healthy his first two seasons. Granted, foot/ankle injuries have limited Taliaferro to just 16 appearances, and West is reportedly in the best shape of his career. This isn't a high priority battle, as fellow running backs Justin Forsett, Javorius Allen and rookie Kenneth Dixon are all considered locks for the final roster. The competition between West and Taliaferro might ultimately be decided on special teams.

Ravens' Ryan Mallett: Struggles during offseason program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mallett's play was erratic during the offseason program, The Baltimore Sun reports.

Mallett joined the Ravens in December and ended up starting the final two games, with his performance decent enough to make him the clear favorite for the backup job this season. Despite his reported struggles during OTAs and minicamp, the former third-round selection (2011) remains a heavy favorite to serve as Joe Flacco's top backup, as the Ravens didn't put much effort into finding competition. Jerrod Johnson and Josh Johnson will also get some reps during training camp.

Ravens' Jerraud Powers: Has inside track for slot role
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Powers has the inside track for the slot corner role, The Baltimore Sun reports.

Powers impressed teammates during OTAs and minicamp, reportedly showing a knack for interceptions, of which he has just 11 in 87 career regular season games (82 starts). Although he was known as the weak link in Arizona's secondary the past few years, Powers should actually represent an upgrade for a Baltimore team that has struggled with poor cornerback play for the last half decade. Though he only signed a one-year contract, Powers could even push Shareece Wright for a starting job on the outside across from Jimmy Smith (foot). In such a scenario, Powers might still shift inside in nickel and dime packages, which could make him an interesting IDP option in leagues that use specific positions. It's still speculative at this point, as Wright will enter training camp as the favorite to start.

Ravens' Dennis Pitta: Looks good at camp
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Pitta (hip) was one of the Ravens' more active offensive players during the offseason program, The Baltimore Sun reports.

Attempting to bounce back from a second dislocation of his right hip, the 30-year-old Pitta apparently looked good at OTAs and minicamp. He was once a leading target for close friend Joe Flacco, but even if Pitta proves to be much the same as he once was, the Ravens have a ton of competition for snaps at tight end, with Ben Watson, Crockett Gillmore (shoulder) and Maxx Williams also in the mix. Pitta hasn't played in a game since September of 2014, and he will always be at added risk for suffering another severe hip injury, which would almost certainly spell the end of his career. He already considered retiring, but instead decided to give it one last shot after sitting out the entire 2015 season.
