Ravens expect rookie LBs Patrick Queen and Malik Harrison to play a lot this year

The Ravens had one of the league’s top defenses last year and a pair of rookie linebackers are set to play a big role in their attempt to do so again this year.

Patrick Queen was the team’s first-round pick and Malik Harrison came aboard in the third round to give the Ravens a pair of young players to plug into their defense. With Josh Bynes and Patrick Onwuasor gone in free agency, head coach John Harbaugh said the plan is to have both guys front and center from the jump.

“Those two guys will kind of be roaming in there at those two linebacker spots, both base and sub, and we’ll just see how much playing time they earn,” Harbaugh said, via Jeff Zrebiec of TheAthletic.com. “We expect them to play a lot of football this year. We’re really fired up about those two guys.”

The Ravens also signed veteran inside linebacker Jake Ryan, but it sounds like their first option will be to go young in the middle of their defense.

  1. Ohio State pros are pretty weak save for Ezekiel Elliott.

    Should be a hoot, and with a late start to the year, an abbreviated camp and covid19 issues likely to bubble up, Baltimore’s lack of quality experience at lb, should prove to be a dream for opposing offenses.

    Harbaugh loves him so Harbaugh. Meanwhile, you don’t hear a peep out of Foxborough.

    Par for the course.

    One team is obnoxious, runs their mouth and is arrogant, the other quiet, professional and classy.

  2. Malik Harrison reminds me of former ravens LB Jamie sharper. Big thumper in the middle on first and 2nd down and the ability to line up on the edge as a pass rusher on 3rd down.

  3. Nick Bosa, Terry McLaurin;
    Denzel Ward, Tyquan Lewis, #Jerome Baker, Sam Hubbard;
    Marshon Lattimore, Malik Hooker, Gareon Conley, Curtis Samuels, #Raekwon McMillian;
    Joey Bosa, Zeke Elliot, Eli Apple, Taylor Decker, Michael Thomas, Vonn Bell.

    Yeahhhhh – real weak lately

  4. Defenses will catch up to Jackson like Kaepernick, and Vick and VY… they’ll win a few but never consistently

    NFL defensive rookies of the year:
    2016 – Joey Bosa (Ohio State)
    2017 – Marshon Lattimore (Ohio State)
    2019 – Nick Bosa (Ohio State)

    It must be embarrassing for you to post so much yet know so little about football.

    If you’re going to be obnoxious, at least know what you’re talking about.

  6. Patrick Queen should have been drafted much earlier. I didn’t see any weakness. I know there isn’t a perfect player, but the guy really doesn’t have any weaknesses. He’s too little, but he doesn’t play like he’s little. He’s not that smart, but he plays extremely smart. They call it paralysis by analysis (I think). They just over-analyze guys if they’re not the perfect height, weight, and speed.

    Wait until Parris Campbell gets healthy and in a groove with Phillip Rivers in Indy. He’ll become one of the best WR’s in the game. This years group might be their best ever.

    Why would you? Bradys gone, now sit down and enjoy being perennial also-rans for the foreseeable future.

    The patriots defense couldn’t stop Devonte Parker and Derrick Henry.

    The Pats allowed 14 points to Tenn. Baltimore allowed 28, because, you know, Baltimore thinks they are better than they really are. lol

    And, Brady sucked.

    The QB spot in 2020, won’t suck.

  10. The pats QB in 2020 is going to be a trainwreck, and the Ravens dunked on the patriots in 2019 so…

    Vernon Gholston, Big Daddy Wilkinson and literally dozens of others over the past 15 years, say hello.

    bawahah

    My goodness, you people have no idea what you’re talking about, as per usual.

    Ohio State yields are horrible in the NFL.

  12. The Ravens ( Queen/Harrison) and the Cardinals ( I. Simmons/DeVondre Campbell/Evan Weaver joining Jordan Hicks) will have the most improved ILB play in the NFL this year I believe. The middle of both those teams defenses improved dramatically w/ what Baltimore did in F/A and what AZ did In the draft and free agency.

  13. A school that produced 3 of the last 4 Defensive rookies of the year and possibly 4 of 5 with Chase Young isn’t weak.

    Sorry if you can’t handle actual facts.

    Try harder next time, ty.

  14. Keep in mind Josh Bynes was signed off the couch totally out of football and stepped in as starter midseason. Onuwasor lost serious snaps to career backup LJ for who was cut and we signed midseason. If these two rookies can be even average Ravens D gonna be scaaary.
