2. Anthony Weaver, Ravens associate head coach/defensive line coach

Ravens defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald might be the most sought-after head coach candidate this offseason. He's done wonders with Baltimore's defense, but Weaver is considered a rising star in the league, per The Athletic's Dianna Russini.

A former defensive coordinator/DL coach with the Texans in 2020, Weaver has quietly ascended up the ranks with the Ravens the last three seasons. He became John Harbaugh's assistant head coach before the season to add to his defensive line coach title.

Under Weaver, Baltimore boasted the fourth-highest sack percentage (8.65%) during the regular season and Justin Madubuike has morphed into one of the most disruptive interior defenders in the league.

The Ravens front doesn't have much high-end talent, but Weaver has consistently maximized the potential of Odafe Oweh, Michael Pierce, Broderick Washington and second-year DT Travis Jones. Even journeyman Jadeveon Clowney is having arguably the best season of his career.

Did we mention Baltimore excels at stopping the run, too? The Ravens coaching staff and front office is likely to get pilaged this offseason. The Cowboys would be smart to join in and pry Weaver from Charm City.
