Though the Ravens are a preseason juggernaut dating back to 2016, Baltimore is expected to rest several key pieces, headlined by Lamar Jackson, for the opener.

Willis is a dual-threat talent who ran for more than 1,800 yards in two seasons at Liberty. He has a big arm that helped him generate nearly 2,900 passing yards and 27 touchdowns last season at the college level.Why the Ravens can cover

Huntley generated 294 yards on 47 carries, averaging 6.3 yards per tote, and produced two rushing touchdowns. He also has extensive preseason experience,
