Ravens sign offensive lineman Marcel Jones to practice squad

Jones was a seventh-round pick by New Orleans in 2012.

The Ravens rounded out their practice squad on Monday by signing offensive lineman Marcel Jones to the 10-player group.

Jones was selected in the seventh round out of Nebraska by the New Orleans Saints in the 2012 NFL draft. He’s yet to appear in a regular-season game, however. After two seasons in New Orleans, the Saints waived Jones this past Saturday as they got down to 53 players on their active roster.

Jones is a big lineman at 6-foot-7, 320 pounds that’s considered a swing tackle/guard.

Here’s the full practice squad:

OL Marcel Jones

CB Tramain Jacobs

OL Ryan Jensen

CB Deji Olatoye

DT Jamie Meder

OLB John Simon

DT AJ Pataiali’i

TE Phillip Supernaw

QB Keith Wenning

RB Fitzgerald Toussaint

Preseason power rankings: No. 5 New Orleans Saints

The Saints defense was historically awful in 2012, but it came back in 2013 and the Saints made the playoffs. This year, the Saints should be in contention for the Super Bowl.

2013 Record: 11-5

Notable Losses: Roman Harper, Darren Sproles, Lance Moore, Bryan De La Puente, Will Smith, Malcolm Jenkins, Charles Brown, Jabari Greer

Notable Gains: Jonathan Goodwin, Jairus Byrd

Draft Class: Brandin Cooks, Stanley Jean-Baptiste, Khairi Fortt, Vinnie Sunseri, Ronald Powell, Tavon Brooks

The Facts: The Saints offense should be stellar as always. Drew Brees has all the targets to reach 5,000 yards again. Marques Colston, Kenny Stils, Brandon Cooks, Joe Morgan, Pierre Thomas, Jimmy Graham and Ben Watson will make life easy for Brees. Their rushing attack should be fine with Travaris Cadet, Pierre Thomas, Khiry Robinson and Mark Ingram.

Left tackle is a slight concern as they have a young Terron Armstead written in as their starting left tackle and Armstead only started two games in 2013.

Defensively, they should be even better than they were in 2013. They’re younger and healthier on defense. Rob Ryan’s scheme isn’t foreign to them now and they have Jairus Byrd to join Kenny Vaccaro in the secondary.

They should definitely win the NFC South. The Panthers being primed for regression, the Buccaneers are in reset mode and the Falcons are not 100% ready for contention.

One of the biggest concerns I have with the Saints is their kicker. Mainly their lack of one. The Saints do not have a kicker at the moment as both Derek Dimke and Shayne Graham were cut. It sounds ridiculous but for a team like the Saints, the last thing they want is to miss the Super Bowl because of kicking issues (trust me, we’ve been there, it’s painful). Fortunately, a good kicker isn’t terribly hard to find.

Predicted Record: 12-4 wins against Panthers (x2), Buccaneers, Falcons (x2), Ravens, Browns, Bengals, Lions, Packers, Vikings and Cowboys

If you disagree with my assessment and ranking remember: Unless it’s something crazy,your guess is as good as mine.

Predicting the NFL’s other division winners

If the Ravens make the playoffs, they could still have to travel during their playoff run and even if they win the North, they could still have to travel. And then there’s still the NFC to look at as the Ravens would have to play them for the Lombardi. Here’s a prediction for the other 7 divisional winners.

AFC West: Broncos

Why: To start, the Broncos have Peyton Manning, who’s always been good for 10+ wins. Second off, the Chiefs are expected to take a step back and the Chargers won a lot of games the should have lost. Do I need to explain the Raiders?

AFC South: Colts

Why: The other teams are quarterbacked by Ryan Fitzpatrick, Chad Henne and Jake Locker. The Colts have Andrew Luck. They’re winning unless Luck gets injured severely. If that happens, it’s going to be the 2010 Seahawks all over again. Ewww.

AFC East: Patriots

Why: The Patriots are the best team in this division. Period. The Patriots didn’t sign Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner because they were scared of the Dolphins and Jets. They did it to keep up with Seattle and Denver. All of their divisional opponents have questions at QB and honestly Bill Belichick is still the best coach in the division.

NFC North: Packers

Why: The Lions are going through a change with the hiring of Jim Caldwell as head coach. The Vikings are going through changes with the hiring of Mike Zimmer and the drafting of Teddy Bridgewater to be the new QB. That leaves it between Green Bay and Chicago, and I believe that Aaron Rodgers gives the Packers the edge over Jay Cutler’s Bears.

NFC West: Seahawks

Why: Colin Kaepernick has never won a game at CenturyLink Field. That’s not a stat that coincides with divisional trophies, however the 49ers have the likeliest chance to unseat the predicted division winner. The Cardinals have Carson Palmer, who is approaching the end of his career rapidly and could drop off. Sam Bradford hasn’t led the Rams to .500, so a divisional victory seems like a lot to ask him.

NFC South: Saints

Why: The Falcons were an abysmal team in 2013; while I think they’ll bounce back in 2014, I don’t think they’ll bounce back that much. The Panthers will struggle with the lack of quality targets and more importantly a quality blindside blocker for Cam Newton. The Buccaneers will improve from 2013, but they have questions on their roster. The Saints are still the class of the NFC South.

NFC East: Eagles

Why: Unlike the other NFC divisions, the Eagles aren’t here because they’re the best, but because they’re the least flawed, and I don’t think that the loss of DeSean Jackson changes that fact.

Predicted Berths

AFC

1: Winner of Broncos vs. Patriots

2: Loser of Broncos vs. Patriots

3: Colts

4: AFC North Victor

5: 2nd AFC North

6: 3rd AFC North

NFC

1: Seahawks

2: Saints

3: Packers

4: Eagles

5: 49ers

6: Bears
