The Ravens second pre-season game ends with a blowout victory over the Los Angeles Rams. Lamar scored a touchdown on a dazzling run and the excitement is in the air.

Game MVP: Breshad Perriman

A couple good catches helped keep him afloat, but a deep-route touchdown was just what the doctor ordered. He needed a big game and he delivered. Oh yeah, did I mention the touchdown?

Stock-up

Tim Williams — Was my MVP until Breshad caught the touchdown. So close. He racked in two tackles plus the strip-sack and responded well after looking good in the Hall of Fame Game.

Gus Edwards — The big man continues to produce on the snaps he’s earned. On 12 carries he rumbled for 57 yards, including a 25-yard burst through the middle.

Lamar Jackson — The rookie quarterback broke free in the red-zone and marched in for the nine-yard touchdown, but not until he shook two defenders.

Mark Thompson — He’s behind Edwards on my depth chart, but he broke free for a 29-yard reception on a screen pass, which only further demonstrates Kenneth Dixon’s value in the passing game can be found elsewhere.

Chris Moore — He’s a roster lock, but I’m not going to brush over his leaping catch. I’ve said it before, he makes far too many dazzling catches for what we expect from him.

Patrick Ricard — Another lock on my roster, but a big-man touchdown is always worth talking about.

Maurice Canady — He’s a tall player, but even he had to climb the ladder for the interception this evening. What a jump and what a play.

Breshad Perriman — Two solid catches where he turned up-field. Then a monstrous go-route touchdown!

Zach Sieler — He’s a real option here for the Ravens defensive line. A man this big and strong is somebody worth keeping on the roster, especially when they can swim through a block for the 12-yard sack.

Alvin Jones — Special teams is important and he did great with the one-on-one tackle after releasing from a block.

Stock-down

Jordan Lasley — A bad drop and zero catches from the rookie.

Jaleel Scott — Only a single reception for nine yards. He should be producing more.

Stanley Jean-Baptiste — He allowed the lone-touchdown from the Ravens while Canady had an interception. He also didn’t produce well on special teams.

Bronson Kaufusi — He needs to stand out to make the roster and I saw far more Sieler than the BYU product.

Kamalei Correa — After a crazy game last week, Correa only produced a single solo tackle. He needs more to make the roster.
