The Baltimore Ravens 2019 season was filled with lots of success, but in the playoffs when it matters most, they struggled again. There is no doubt a lot of talent on this team, but there is still some untapped potential that could be in line for a big season. Let's take a look at three potential breakout players for Lamar Jackson and company.
If running back J.K. Dobbins gets enough playing time, he is going to be in line for a big season. Dobbins looks to be the long term starter for the Ravens after being drafted out of Ohio State.
The Ravens have Ingram, Gus Edwards, and Justice Hill, so playing time might be hard to come by early, but there is no doubt about the talent that Dobbins has. In 2019 at Ohio State, Dobbins had 301 carriers for 2,003 yards and 21 touchdowns.
The Ravens are a run first team, and with Lamar Jackson's ability to run, it really opens up more lanes for the running back. When the ball is in Dobbins' hands, he is going to be a difference-maker for Baltimore.
This is one player who might not even be included on this list, because it's so obvious, but Marquise Brown is ready to have an elite 2020 season. Brown dealt with a foot injury last season, which hurt his production, but still had a strong season catching 46 passes for 584 yards and seven touchdowns.
Brown has elite speed that caused all kinds of issues for opposing defenses. especially with all the other playmakers on the Ravens offense.
Brown is 100 percent healthy for 2020, which is going to be a game-changer for his offense. It wouldn't be shocking to see if Brown had at least 1,000 yards receiving yards and 10 touchdowns this season.
Malik Harrison was drafted in the third round by the Ravens, but he has a chance to come in right away and be a difference-maker for their offense.
Patrick Onwuasor moved onto the New York Jets, opening up the linebacker spot that can be filled by Harrison if he wins the job during training camp. Harrison was a standout linebacker at Ohio State, finishing the 2019 season with 49 tackles including 16.5 tackles for a loss.
Harrison still needs to improve his coverage skills, but that is something he can work on while he is a standout in the run game. In the weakside linebacker role, Harrison should have a lot of success.
