Ravens training camp highlights & lowlights: 7/26/18

NFL: Baltimore Ravens-Minicamp Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

Another exciting day of practice as the Baltimore Ravens worked in front of the big set of bleachers, allowing fans to experience football in the front row. Fans certainly saw their fair share of touchdowns, too, with multiple deep shots landing in the arms of the receivers.

Note: Today the Ravens did not wear pads

Player of the day: John Brown

You can always feel the tension of a big play in progress. The quarterback going through his progressions, until finding the big route down the sideline and launching the football into the sky. Fans begin oohing as they see the battle between cornerback and receiver, hoping the catch is made. Today, John Brown caught that football, 50-yards deep and into the endzone for the touchdown. Joe Flacco’s deep ball is ready for action, even against sophomore cornerback Marlon Humphrey.


Speaking of Marlon, unfortunately, today he had a rough practice. Tim White, John Brown and Jordan Lasley all managed to beat him for touchdowns.

Patrick Onwuasor intercepted a ball against the starters and had a lane to the endzone with maybe two men left to beat. While defensive coordinator Don Martindale mentioned Kenny Young jockeying for the starting role, I believe Patrick’s consistently ahead of the linebackers trying to steal the position beside C.J. Mosley.

Tavon Young produced another strong practice, this time bullying Jaelon Acklin on a short throw in one-on-one drills. Fans were calling for a flag, but there certainly was not enough contact to draw one. Young is going to produce strong results in the slot this season.


The offense produced multiple big plays, including Hayden Hurst hauling in an 18-yard catch, one which we’ve all seen many times in the form of Dennis Pitta. It’s good seeing the first-round pick back on the field after missing a couple practices.

Breshad Perriman continues to deliver. He produced a 15-yard catch against the starting defense, then hauled in another later on. I’m excited to see him play next week.

It wasn’t all pretty by the receivers today though, as Jaleel Scott dropped two passes during drills without coverage. He later couldn’t complete a catch which was behind him. He managed to get one hand on the ball, but couldn’t rope it in. I have not seen anything of note after his redzone touchdown earlier last week. He may be fighting for a roster spot more than some believe.
