4. Baltimore Ravens
Just as easily as they fell due to free agent and trade losses, the Baltimore Ravens could easily climb if the young talent they brought in via the draft pan out. Uncertainty hurts them at this moment. Losing key players and bringing in young talent to replace them can take time; just ask your resident Steeler fan. The Ravens will have to overcome a rebuilding season to make them a viable contender.
The defense however will take a step back in my opinion this year. Although temporary, they will need to take steps back to get better. Ranking the Ravens at number four is not something that many fans will appreciate, but I remind you, as the season progresses and the uncertainty becomes more stable, they are probably the easiest candidate to go from worst to first in any NFL division.
