The pads were on today as the Baltimore Ravens practiced inside the field house. Both Maurice Canady and Hayden Hurst returned to practice, but after 45 minutes the rookie tight end walked off the field and did not return. He wasn’t limping or favoring a leg.
Player of the day: Chris Board
During the secondary vs. receivers drills, undrafted free agent linebacker Chris Board intercepted a pass and took it thirty yards for a defensive touchdown. Nothing like a big play to keep your name in the coaches heads.
The Ravens ran one-on-one drills today which is always exciting. From my notes:
- Anthony Averett broke up a pass intended for Breshad Perriman. The ball arrived late, but Averett was tight in coverage on this play regardless of the timing.
- Jordan Lasley caught a deep pass for a touchdown against Darious Williams.
- Kenny Young had a strong play against Javorius Allen, but on the next play was spun around by Alex Collins. Like I’ve said the past few days, Collins’ footwork is next level.
- Anthony Averett successfully defended Jaelon Acklin.
- Tavon Young broke up a pass against Willie Snead. During this play, Young was glued to Willie’s hip. Thoroughly impressed with his coverage.
- Jordan Lasley catches another pass against Darious Williams.
- Breshad Perriman turns Anthony Averett around on a double-move. Breshad went inside on his release, broke inside tighter, then cut hard back outside. Averett went for leverage right when Perriman cut and Averett was beat.
During 11-man drills, the series began with Lamar Jackson throwing a low ball. Marlon Humphrey dove and caught it before the football hit the turf. The next two plays were dropped passes by Chris Moore and Vince Mayle. Lamar struggled with overthrown passes during these drills on multiple occasions. He also hit his targets, and some were dropped as mentioned above.
John Brown and Nick Keizer both dropped a pass in the catching drills without defense. After Brown’s drop, Marty Mornhinweg spoke with him for a bit. My notes don’t have Joe Flacco being mentioned, but I have two overthrows marked for Jackson. Keizer suffered on these drills as he dropped one and then was overthrown by Jackson on the follow-up.
