SI.com's NFL personnel expert Michael Lombardi evaluates the Ravens' units.

QB D
Looking for rookie Joe Flacco to emerge; it won't be this year.

RB B
Rookie Ray Rice offers some relief for McGahee.

WR C
Lack depth, big-time playmakers; Clayton had no TDs in '07.

TE B-
Heap is always getting hurt; unit needs a blocker, more depth.

OL D
Lost Ogden on the left; never replaced Tony Pashos on the right.

DL B
Aging but powerful, and balanced between run D and pass rush.

LB A
As a group, can cover the field and rush the passer.

DB C
Two corners over 30; newcomer Fabian Washington is the key.

ST C
Stover is reliable but short-legged; coverage teams improving.
