We are currently in the short lull between OTAs and training camp, meaning all we can do now is speculate. The rookie minicamps have already been completed, which sets up anticipation for their ability amongst the starters and veterans of the Ravens.
While its not particularly easy to keep track of who is still on the team and who has been cut (these transactions are not published like ones of veterans, for there is so much activity of undrafted free agents), here is a brief list of players, in no particular order, who are beginning to make a name for themselves. Feel free to comment on and expand this list below.
Matt Furstenburg, TE, Maryland- This 6' 2" 244 lb TE posted the second 40 fastest time for his position at the combine with a 4.62. With the Ravens only currently having two locks for TEs on their roster (Dennis Pitta, Ed Dickson), and their willingness in the past to carry three, Furstenburg may have the biggest chance of all UFAs to make the Ravens' roster if he can prove himself. His lack of production senior year can be attributed to the mass exodus due to injuries at QB, but I am sure most readers here are aware of that.
Moe Lee, CB, Utah- This cornerback, listed at 6' 1", 191 lbs, has apparently really stood out amongst his peers at the rookie minicamps. He was never a full time starter in college, but has played in 25 games the past two years, with 64 total tackles, 2 fumble recoveries, 12 passes defended, and 2 interceptions during that span. He, unlike Furstenburg, has quite the uphill battle for a roster spot. The Ravens already have terrific depth at CB, with players Lardarius Webb, Corey Graham, Jimmy Smith, Chykie Brown, Chris Johnson, Asa Jackson, and newly drafted Marc Anthony already on the roster.
Brandon Copeland, OLB/DE, Penn- This 6' 3" 280 pound prospect was a three time Ivy League Champion and three time 1st Team All-Ivy selection. Through he career at Penn, he had 160 tackles consisting of 26.5 for a loss and 11 sacks. The Ravens are loaded at the defensive line and outside linebacker position, so his best shot may be on the Practice Squad. It is also worth noting that he played for Biff Poggi and Stan White as a Gilman Greyhound.
