secondaries Baltimore Ravens Hoodie , joint practice report and more Orlando Brown Solid in Ravens Debut - Ken McKusickOverall, McKusick gave Brown’s professional debut a B- grade. Orlando will have an opportunity to work on his pass blocking against Rams outside linebackers Matt Longacre, Samson Ebukam, Justin Lawler and Ejuan Price during Thursday’s preseason contest. Brandon Carr Wants to Keep His Starting Streak Alive ‘As Long as I Can’ - Ryan MinkBrandon Carr out snapped Marlon Humphrey 1,024 to 596 last season. With Tavon Young returning to play the slot corner role after logging 832 snaps as a rookie in 2016, coordinator Martindale may continue rotating Carr, Humphrey and Jimmy Smith at outside cornerback in 2018. Jaguars, Vikings boast NFL’s best secondaries heading into 2018 - NFL.comThe Jaguars and Vikings tied for a league best 6 yards allowed per passing attempt last season. Baltimore’s 6.5 mark was close behind. Practice Report 8/6: Ravens-Rams Have Hot Customized Baltimore Ravens Jerseys , Physical (Yet Cordial) First Joint Practice - Ryan Mink‘Smokey’ Brown continues to shine, he has a real chance to lead the Ravens in receiving yards this year if he can stay healthy. Gus Edwards, meanwhile, must improve his ball security. Even after an impressive showing against the Bears last week, fumbling could easily relegate him to the practice squad.Ravens training camp 2018: Day 7 The Ravens will return to the practice field for the second consecutive day on Friday. Baltimore’s next off day is scheduled for Sunday as they prepare for the Hall of Fame game against the Bears next Thursday. Baltimore recently released their first depth chart, and it was filled with several surprises. However, like with every other season, this depth chart should be taken with a grain of salt. A common theme for almost every position group of this depth chart is that the veterans were given the starting job http://www.ravensfootballauthentics.com/alex-lewis-jersey-authentic , despite practice trends. James Hurst has not taken a single snap at right tackle during training camp due to Marshal Yanda’s injury, which has forced him to slide to right guard, but he is still listed over Orlando Brown Jr. Things to watch for during Friday’s practice:1. UDFA running backsKenneth Dixon tweaked his hamstring during Thursday’s practice, which should give Baltimore’s undrafted free agent running backs extra reps. RB De’Lance Turner — He has showcased his explosiveness during kickoff drills and full-team drills. Turner is a smaller running back, who is dangerously agile.RB Mark Thompson — Thompson is a bigger back, who was semi-productive in college. He struggled with fumble issues in his last season at Florida. Thompson has struggled in practice catching the ball thus far.RB Gus Edwards — Edwards is an intriguing running back, who was a college transfer. He attended Miami and then Rutgers. He is a bigger back, and he has special teams potential as well.2. Center competitionAlex Lewis and Matt Skura have been battling it out for the first-team reps at center. Given Marshal Yanda’s injury http://www.ravensfootballauthentics.com/brandon-williams-jersey-authentic , they have alternated at left guard and center. Skura has struggled at times during training camp, while Lewis has looked outstanding for a majority of the practices. 3. Kenny Young vs. Patrick OnwuasorThe most intriguing position battle to date has been the competition at inside linebacker. Peanut has been the clear winner thus far, but Young has looked impressive as well. Young displayed excellent coverage abilities, which was his greatest strength in college, while Peanut has seemingly bulked up. It should be an interesting competition to monitor throughout the preseason. PodiumApproximately 11:00 am ETJohn HarbaughTavon YoungMatthew JudonChris Moore
