Today is the first day for mandatory mini camp in Balitmore. Veterans, rookies, practice squad guys and free agent pick ups all must report to the Ravens training facility in Owings Mills today.
This is the first time that the full team has come together since the loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship game last January.
Couple things that ESPN AFC North Blogger, James Walker, will be concentrating on during the duration of mini camp.
- What strides will quarterback Joe Flacco make in his second year?
- Will the defensive scheme have a different look under new coordinator Greg Mattison?
- Who will take the early lead in the race to replace linebacker Bart Scott?
- How will tight end L.J. Smith fit with the offense?
- Will John Beck or Troy Smith take hold of the backup quarterback job?
- Can rookie first-rounder Michael Oher make an early impression in his quest to be the starting right tackle?
- Will any of the four veteran tryouts at receiver catch Baltimore's eye?
