2019 NFL Preseason Week 3 Preview: Players to watch in all 16 games - PFF

Baltimore Ravens @ Philadelphia Eagles

Ravens

Chris Moore has caught all of six of his targets for 102 yards and a touchdown through two preseason games. The Cincinnati alumnus is entering a contract year with the Ravens and should look to carry momentum into the regular season. Third-year edge defender Tim Williams, a PFF favorite coming out of Alabama in 2017, is off to a similarly outstanding start. He’s earned a 90.0 overall grade across 41 defensive snaps through two games, recording four defensive stops and five pressures in the process.

Gus Edwards, Baltimore Ravens: Baltimore signed Mark Ingram to a three-year deal in March, but that doesn’t mean we should forget about Edwards. The second-year running back became the team’s starter in Week 12 last season and rushed for 654 yards over the final seven games -- only Saquon Barkley (721) and Derrick Henry (701) had more in that span. A big back (6-1, 238 pounds) and downhill runner, he should see plenty of opportunities to get carries in a run-heavy offense that will also feature Ingram and dual-threat QB Lamar Jackson.

Issue or Non-Issue As Ravens Training Camp Closes - John Eisenberg

Topic: The lack of a clear-cut starter at left guard.

Issue or Non-Issue: Issue.

Why: The Ravens hoped someone would emerge by now; Head Coach John Harbaugh said in June that the picture should be clearer after two preseason games. But is it? All that has happened, really, is several candidates have been eliminated. Alex Lewis was traded. It seems the Ravens don’t believe rookies Ben Powers or Patrick Mekari are ready. They prefer James Hurst as a swingman. That leaves Jermaine Eluemunor, who has been and an up-and-down performer. The good news is he was effective against the Green Bay Packers, so his arrow might be pointed up. The bad news is he left practice on a cart Monday in Philadelphia.
