Takeaways From Release of Ravens’ First Depth Chart - Ryan Mink

Seth Roberts is a starting wide receiver

The Ravens’ two starting wideouts are the two players with the most experience – Willie Snead IV and Seth Roberts. That would seemingly make Roberts, who the Ravens scooped up immediately after his release from the Oakland Raiders this offseason, a near lock to make the roster in a competitive field. Roberts has looked good in training camp thus far.

Chris Moore, Cyrus Jones Lead Returner Battle

Moore is slated as the kick returner and Cyrus Jones is at punt returner. Both had strong 2018 seasons on the job. Rookie running back Justice Hill is listed as the backup kick returner and running back Tyler Ervin is the backup punt returner.

Baltimore Ravens training camp notes: Lamar Jackson doesn’t back down from Jaguars’ defense - Aaron Kasinitz

STANDOUTS

WRs Jaleel Scott/Seth Roberts -- Roberts was the most consistently productive Ravens receiver Monday. He beat Jaguars Pro Bowl cornerback Jalen Ramsey a couple times in one-on-one drills and then hauled in several catches underneath the defense in team sessions. Scott, meanwhile, produced two of the afternoon’s most notable highlights. He made a jumping catch on a long pass from Jackson early in practice, and then he ran a sharp route later to shake free from a cornerback before pulling in an easy touchdown grab in the back of the end zone.

13. ARIZONA CARDINALS: MARLON HUMPHREY, CB

2017 Pick - Haason Reddick, LB

Starting 13 of the 30 games he’s played in across his first two NFL seasons, Humphrey has showcased the promise of a lockdown corner every time he’s been on the field. Securing four interceptions and 26 pass breakups over that span, Humphrey is already among the best press coverage corners in the league. Humphrey suffocates routes with his aggressive willingness to crowd receivers in the contact window and I love his physicality. Your top-10 NFL cornerback lists are wrong if it doesn’t include Humphrey.

16. BALTIMORE RAVENS: KENNY GOLLADAY, WR

2017 Pick - Marlon Humphrey, CB

Humphrey has been a stud and in this scenario, doesn’t make it to No. 16. But how about a height/weight/speed freak that just logged 70 receptions for 1,063 yards for the Lions in 2018? That’d be fun for Lamar Jackson.
