After spending the day at the Baltimore Ravens Practice Facility, located at aptly named One Winning Drive, I thought I'd post a bunch of photos I took while observing the two hour practice. While it was labeled as Passing Camp, there still was enough of running plays and special teams drills to round out the day. While it was my first live visit to "The Castle" it was impressive to see all the players hustling on every play, with loud encouragement from all the coaches throughout the practice. While I realize many of the younger players were trying to impress or fighting for roster spots, the veterans in camp didn't seem to take any plays off and ended the session dripping with sweat, as it was the hottest day of mini-camps since they started tis spring, according to head coach John Harbaugh.
So here is a photo to whet your appetite and make the "Jump" to see more:
