Ravens hold discussions with Notre Dame Running Back Audric Estime.

The Baltimore Ravens are poised to actively participate in free agency this offseason, particularly focusing on the running back position. Both Gus Edwards and J.K. Dobbins are expected to become free agents when the market opens on March 13. General manager Eric DeCosta will need to bolster the team’s running back roster either through the draft or by acquiring players from other teams.

During the NFL Combine held this week in Indianapolis, DeCosta and Ravens officials held discussions with Notre Dame Fighting Irish running back Audric Estime. Estime had a standout season at Notre Dame, achieving career highs with 1,483 yards and 18 touchdowns on the ground while also making 17 receptions for 147 yards.

Expressing his enthusiasm, Estime stated at the 2024 NFL Scouting Combine, “That’s just a great opportunity. I had John [Harbaugh] in a room, and it’s just a great opportunity. They think highly of me.” Estime believes he would seamlessly fit in alongside Baltimore quarterback Lamar Jackson, praising Jackson’s abilities and the team’s overall cohesion.

Draft experts project Estime as a potential fourth-round pick, suggesting that selecting him would represent a low-risk, high-reward move for the Ravens. Given the Ravens’ need to reinforce the running back position, Estime’s proficiency in catching passes could make him a suitable addition to the team.
