The list of individual players on the Baltimore Ravens that have already impressed both coaches, other players and media seems to be growing every day since Training Camp opened less than a week ago. Starting with QB Joe Flacco, a story on BaltimoreRavens.com notes that offensive coordinator Cam Cameron cannot remember the last time his starting QB had a bad practice. He seems in total control of the offense, almost calmly picking apart the defense on many of the passing drills and 11-on-11 situations.
Even Sergio Kindle is getting praise as he was reported to have the best practice ever of his limited career. Healthy perhaps for the first time, he has spent the off season learning the new defensive playbook and despite playing on the second team defense and only facing the second team offense, he obviously is well ahead of what anyone would have expected, clearly dominating whomever has tried to block him.
Rookie Tommy Streeter was thought to be a project or developmental player due to his one-dimensional success in college, but even head coach John Harbaugh is beginning to think the learning curve may not be as long as originally thought.
