Ravens vs. Redskins final: MVP & Stock Report

Who did enough to warrant a roster spot?

It’s over. It’s finally over. The 2019 preseason for the Baltimore Ravens has ended, and with it, come multiple ups and downs.

MVP: Jaleel Scott

Targeted 10 times and finished with six receptions for 87 yards and a touchdown leave the best argument Scott could give heading into roster cuts. I strongly believe he earned a spot on the 53-man roster.

Stock Up

Trace McSorley — The rookie quarterback ended on a high note, going 15 of 27 for 171 yards and a touchdown. Does anybody believe he’s not worth a roster spot?

Kenneth Dixon — Bias aside, Dixon still produced 13 carries for 66 yards, which is good for 5.1 yards per carry. We’ll see what Eric DeCosta thinks soon enough.

Otaro Alaka — A team-high five tackles on the afternoon keeps the UDFA linebacker in the conversation. Will his defensive capabilities be enough?

Brynden Trawick — A fourth-quarter interception on 3rd & 19 isn’t spectacular. That being said, it’s still a takeaway, even if it was thrown right at you.

Charles Scarff — A solid tight end worth a practice squad spot for the Ravens or elsewhere. I like his play both in the blocking and receiving game.

De’Lance Turner — Another player to leave the field with their head hung high. He found the edge for a 22-yard gain and received the most reps at tailback with 18 carries for 62 yards (3.4 YPC) and a touchdown. Certainly a practice-squad player after his 4th-&-1 goal line rush which moved the chains.

Patrick MekariThe Ravens coaching staffed played him in three different positions tonight. The Jermaine Eluemunor trade probably means he’s making the roster.

Elliott FryWent 2/2 on field goals, including a 48-yarder. Fairly confident he will earn a tryout somewhere.

Donald PayneAfter the defense forced a three-and-out with 2:28 remaining in the game, Payne blocked a punt to put the offense back in the redzone. Perfect way to end your preseason.

Stock Down

Shane Ray — Good pressures by Tim Williams and Tyus Bowser seal the deal for their roster spots and push Ray out of Baltimore. He didn’t play well tonight, either.

Gerald Willis — I didn’t see or hear anything from him.

Zach SielerWhile Patrick Ricard scooped and scored (which was later ruled a ball down by contact), Sieler didn’t make the splash plays necessary to stick around. He’ll make a practice squad, for sure.
