The Ravens still have two players from the 2019 draft class


OWINGS MILLS, Md. — With the release of cornerback Iman Marshall, the Ravens have just two players remaining in their 2019 eight-man draft class.

Here is a breakdown of those players.

Round 1

Marquise Brown wide receiver

Analysis: The Ravens traded wide receiver Marquise Brown and the 100e pick — third-round, compensatory — in the 2022 NFL Draft to the Arizona Cardinals in exchange for the 23rd overall pick, who turned into center Tyler Linderbaum. In 2021, Brown and tight end Mark Andrews each eclipsed 1,000 receiving yards. It was only the second Ravens tandem to hit the 1,000 yard mark in the same season, joining Michael Jackson and Derrick Alexander who accomplished the feat in 1996.

Round 3

Outside Linebacker Jaylon Ferguson

Analysis: Ferguson died in June from the combined effects of fentanyl and cocaine, according to a spokesperson for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. Ferguson looked much leaner and faster in recent voluntary workouts. He had 4.5 sacks over three seasons.

Round 3

Wide Receiver Miles Boykin

Analysis: The Ravens released Boykin after being unable to find a suitable trade partner. Boykin had 33 receptions for 470 yards and seven touchdowns in his three seasons in Baltimore. He signed with the Steelers.

Round 4

Running back Justice Hill

Analysis: Hill is one of two players still with the draft class team. However, he is trying to come back from a season-ending Achilles and will have to fight to make the roster. Hill has established himself as a key player on special teams.

Round 4

Guard Ben Powers

Analysis: Powers is the other draft-class player still with the team. He has seen action in 13 games (12 starts) at left guard in 2021 and will challenge for a starting position this season. He has appeared in all 16 games (seven starts) in 2020.


Round 4

Cornerback Iman Marshall

Analysis: Marshall has been hampered by injuries throughout his Baltimore career. He has played three career games and had a total of four snaps on defense.

Round 5

Defensive tackle Daylon Mack

Analysis: The Ravens released Mack on August 1, 2020, after an injury-plagued rookie season. Mack appeared in one game – Week 4 against the Cleveland Browns – and was limited to nine snaps. Mack last played for the Tampa Bay Bandits of the United States Football League.


Round 6

Quarterback Trace McSorley

Analysis: McSorley was removed from the Ravens practice squad by Arizona in November. In three career games with Baltimore, McSorley completed 3 of 10 passes for 90 yards and a touchdown.
