Another practice in the books for the Ravens, featuring some highlights and a few mistakes.
Player of the Day: John Brown
Every day, every single day, this man runs a deep route for either a big gain or a touchdown. For fans who haven’t attended practice must call me crazy, because they haven’t seen anything from him during pre-season, but he’s doing it in practice daily. Today was no different.

Brown wasn’t the only one to catch for a big gain as Jaleel Scott hauled in a touchdown grab of 25-yards.
Later on, Marlon Humphrey did bat down a pas headed to Brown’s direction. He followed it up with another pass deflection against Chris Moore on the next play, also.
For just arriving at practice today, Darren Waller looked rather sharp, catching multiple passes. He did drop one, but he also won in the red-zone during one-on-one drills.
In his first practice, TE Darren Waller didn’t look rusty. Won his one-on-one matchup in red zone all three times to make the catch.— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiec) August 11, 2018
Chris Moore also caught several passes both wide open and in traffic. He’s undoubtedly the fourth receiver on this roster and continues to develop. The Ravens may have finally drafted a receiver and developed them into a capable threat.
Lamar Jackson suffered an ugly practice, throwing three interceptions, two of them being tipped. Kia Nacua caught two of them and the rookie linebacker Kenny Young caught the third.
Maurice Canady had an up-and-down practice. He swatted a few passes in his red-zone drills, but he also had a dreadlock ripped out as he deflected a pass against DeVier Posey. Later on, he allowed two intermediate passes, which wasn’t the high note I assume he would’ve liked to finish the practice on.
The defense produced impressive results in the 7-on-7 drills in the redzone. Twice, Joe Flacco had to roll-out and stall for over five seconds before throwing the ball. Most teams will have the heat put on you by then, and the coaches were proud. Joe also overthrew Chris Moore and Jordan Lasley in practice, which would have poured on the scoring today for the offense had they been completed.
