Ravens Rookie Minicamp Recap
The team kicked off their rookie minicamp work this past weekend, and got some good things done on the field. While everyone entered and was impressive in their own way, there were a few obvious standouts from the process. Namely, on the offensive side, Ben Cleveland showed out with his amazing size and looks primed to be able to do some damage in the trenches. Similarly, wideout Rashod Bateman showed some impressive glide in being able to catch up to passes, which will be huge for him as he transitions to an NFL deep threat. Odafe Oweh showed some burst and speed in the trenches on the defensive side, and Shaun Wade was working on his footwork early on.
Ravens 2021 NFL Draft Recap
This class has a very high ceiling and could end up being the class that takes the Ravens to new highs and puts the franchise over the top again. From the start of the first round until the fifth, the Ravens did some nice work, filling out plenty of their needs in a confident way. Wideout Rashod Bateman and defensive end Odafe Oweh were the team’s first selections. In round three, the team took guard Ben Cleveland and cornerback Brandon Stephens. Round four brought a potential steal in wideout Tylan Wallace. The fifth-round brought cornerback Shaun Wade and defensive end Daelin Hayes as well as fullback Ben Mason.
Overall, it was a well-balanced class for the Ravens, who did well to add the players they did both in free agency and during the draft. Now that those players are in the mix, it’s neat to see them so fired up to become Ravens.
