Ravens vs. Panthers final score: Three players whose stock decreased

NFL: Preseason-Carolina Panthers at Baltimore Ravens Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

After tonight it’s clear there are some Ravens struggling. There were many errors and not pointing out the bad would be biased.

Darren Waller - You’re fighting for a spot anywhere on the team. You’re in the deepest tight end group in the NFL. You have a four game suspension. Dropping a pass into the arms of a linebacker who takes it back for a touchdown is the last thing you should do. People will point to how he ended up with the most receiving yards, but you can’t excuse the drop. If Cam Newton doesn’t march onto the field to celebrate and receive a penalty the game starts off 10-0 rather than 3-0. You have to catch the ball.

Kyle Arrington - The coverage was abysmal. On multiple plays Kyle looked lost, and wasn’t sure where to go. The Ravens can’t have another season wasted with poor coverage play, and if Kyle can’t figure it out he has to go.

Jerraud Powers - With the 1’s on the field Powers looked to be no better than Arrington. Twice I found Jerraud Powers burned and his lack of coverage giving the Panthers big gains. Not a good look for the corner we so desperately need to produce.

Dishonorable mention:

Kaelin Clay - In competition for a roster spot as a return specialist this man dropped the ball. . . literally. Muffing a punt that is recovered by the opposition is inexcusable.

I hope this next week the Ravens can tighten up, and fix the mistakes. Week one is less than a month away.
