Rock Ya-Sin Carries the Marcus Peters Torch


After about thirty minutes of positional drills in at present’s obligatory minicamp, the Ravens protection began to stroll in direction of the close to subject the place the offense was working towards. Roquan Smith – rocking the white quantity zero jersey – led the way in which and stopped on the sidelines, with the whole thing of the protection stepping up simply behind him, and able to battle.

I do know it’s minicamp.

I do know it’s June.

However that scene of the Ravens protection led by Agent Zero was highly effective as hell, and had me able to run by means of a wall. I want September, and I want it NOW.

Fittingly, on a day that was broadly hyped because the “OBJ Day” the place we lastly get to witness Odell Beckham Jr. donning a Ravens jersey and connecting with Lamar Jackson, the day was really owned by the Ravens protection in workforce drills.

One of many greatest standouts on the day was David Ojabo, who continues to have me cautiously optimistic (that is nonetheless shells in June, I’m attempting to not bounce the gun). Ojabo generated strain after strain in workforce drills, together with a ‘sack’ on Jackson within the first half of apply at present.

Ojabo wasn’t the one cross rusher creating chaos for the Ravens offensive line both, as Odafe Oweh discovered the backfield just a few occasions and continued to wreck any edge the road tried to set on run performs, whereas rookie Tavius Robinson had one other good apply and created some critical pressures in his reps throughout workforce drills, and Jeremiah Moon timed a leap on the line to tip a cross try into the air and incomplete.

For all the speak round Danielle Hunter being a chunk the Ravens want, it certain was good to see the group they presently have trying sharp this early on.

No, Simply No!

The secondary discovered some comparable success in their very own proper, with Ar’Darius Washington having a standout day in protection, Marcus Williams reeling within the lone interception on the day, Trayvon Mullen taking part in ‘sticky af’ (that’s precisely how I’ve it written in my notes), and Rock Ya-Sin taking part in as arduous because the smack speak he was shelling out.

A fast rationalization on that notice for Rock: the smack speak was very Marcus Peters-esque, and he definitely backed it up all day lengthy. I completely love the vitality he brings to the protection and it appears to be contagious throughout the sphere as ‘iron sharpens iron’ and Nelson Agholor and Ya-Sin went toe to toe just a few occasions at present in full workforce drills (about even on the day).

Talking of Nelson Agholor, I’ll reiterate what I mentioned final week at OTAs: Ravens followers want to begin placing some respect on his title.

Agholor was absolutely a beneficiary of Rashod Bateman being out, however he made probably the most of it reeling in catch after catch, as his rapport with Jackson continues to develop. I notably liked seeing how the 2 dealt with a miscommunication on a cross play the place the cross got here up in need of the place Agholor stood. As he walked again in direction of the road, he continued to talk with Lamar about it… and the 2 of them ran it again to success simply two performs later.

Your WR3/4 getting max reps and producing rapport with QB1 isn’t the worst factor on the planet, and I actually suppose he’ll play an integral position for the Ravens success this season.

Because you’re all fascinated about drops, right here’s your (3) on the day for the wideouts: Zay Flowers, Agholor, Devin Duvernay. All three got here again with nice catches quickly after, together with an attractive over-the-shoulder catch by Duvernay down the left sideline in tight protection.

A number of different fast notes price noting…which might be noteworthy:

Charlie Kolar doesn’t drop something.

— Agholor roped in an attractive deep ball from Lamar for a landing.

— Keaton Mitchell had one other stable exhibiting, each carrying and in cross professional.

Daryl Worley by accident sammiched Andy Isabella on a PBU that drew some cheers and jeers (pending on which sideline you listened to)

— Lamar hit Isaiah Doubtless with an attractive sidearm throw.

Play of the Day: Tylan Wallace went streaking (not like that) down the proper sideline, turned for the cross, tipped it up within the air and again to himself, stayed inbounds, and stored on protecting on. Chef’s kiss.
