Ravens coach John Harbaugh said, at the post-draft press conference, that he was glad to see who his team got because now there's a better idea what the depth chart is going to look like.

In other words, now the Ravens know who they've got and what else they might need.

"It’s good to see the draft shake out," Harbaugh said that night. "It’s one thing to have draft picks and have prospects and guys you are evaluating. It’s another to have Ravens, to have players on your depth chart."

The Ravens clearly are big on competitions and the depth chart. They don't want to just hand someone a job and let it stay that way forever. They believe in battling and pushing and trying to get better. They're not afraid to make moves based on that. 

Take a look at what they did with the offensive linemen during the playoffs last season. They shook up the whole offensive line, and that really paved the way for the Super Bowl championship.

That's why the depth chart is so important to them. They want to have depth because the deeper a team is, the more talent they've got available. Simply put, it gives the coaches more cards to play during the season. 

"One of the things I do during this process is kind of fill out the depth chart as we go, and it’s a lot stronger, it’s a lot deeper right now," Harbaugh said. "We have competition at most spots. I am really excited about our personnel generally, and I am really excited about these 10 guys [picked in the draft this year]."
