The final day before pads has concluded. Here are the notes from today’s practice.
Player of the Practice
James Proche II
Should this just be named the “Proche of the Practice?” Today he hauled in a one-handed pass on a crossing route and later caught an endzone dime his way. All that’s left is for Proche to perform in the preseason and solidify his role on the roster.
The pass rush made it rough sledding for the quarterbacks today. Specifically, first-round rookie linebacker Odafe Oweh. Both Trace McSorley and Tyler Huntley couldn’t get into a rhythm and it was mainly due to the speed and skill of Oweh on the edge. I’m eager to see his play transform with the pads on starting tomorrow.
An excellent interception by who else than the NFL’s leading interception leader, Marcus Peters. After plucking the ball from the air, Peters took off before being met with would-be tacklers. Peters opted to lateral the ball to safety Chuck Clark who took the ball to the endzone.
An all-around rough go of it today from the receiver. He had two passes bounce off his hands. He did catch one ball against cornerback Brandon Stephens, but suffered an injury and left the field with 30 minutes left of practice. Hopefully it’s nothing serious.
Honestly, the best press conference I’ve had the pleasure of attending. It somehow managed to top Steve Smith Sr. doing his best to light the microphone on fire with a rant which ended with calling the media a bunch of jackasses. Seriously, Ryan was the Lamar Jackson of press conferences.
Constant pressure was caused by Wolfe today. He was also doing so without the aid of Calais Campbell on the other side. It can’t be mentioned enough, pads come on tomorrow.
After a refreshing day off the Baltimore Ravens are back at it here at the Under Armour Performance Center in Owings Mills, Maryland. It looks to be a hot today, with a big blue sky absent of clouds.
Practice: 8:30 — 11 a.m. ET
Podium: 11:05 a.m.
- Heach Coach John Harbaugh
- Inside linebackers coach Rob Ryan
- Cornerback Marcus Peters
- Linebacker Patrick Queen
This will be the first time we hear from Rob Ryan during training camp and get an inside look as to who he sees is best fitting at the second inside linebacker position next to Queen. Speaking off, we’ll also hear from Queen on the matter.
Make sure to follow along on social media as I will be posting photo and video content as according to media guidelines set by the organizations rules and regulations. I’ll also be sharing thoughts and opinions about the practice before attending the podium session following practice. You won’t want to miss out, so follow the links below!
