Marshal Yanda expected to miss OTA’s and spring minicamp due to shoulder surgery

Marshal Yanda expected to miss OTA’s and spring minicamp due to shoulder surgery

Marshal Yanda battled a left shoulder injury last season that forced him to switch to left guard for the remainder of the season. It was revealed at the owners meeting that Yanda, a six-time pro-bowler, will miss all of the team’s spring activities and mini-camp. Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh said on Tuesday, “He'll be ready for training camp... 100 percent.” Yanda proved his toughness last season when he decided to play through the injury as opposed to missing an extended period of time. Yanda had surgery on his left shoulder this off-season. If he were to miss an extended period...

Dick Cass says the Ravens are done in free agency until after the NFL Draft

Dick Cass says the Ravens are done in free agency until after the NFL Draft

The Ravens usually make impact signings after the draft. The Baltimore Ravens have had a very unusual and completely unrecognizable offseason. They have been active in free agency; signing Danny Woodhead, Tony Jefferson, and Brandon Carr. Along with resigning Anthony Levine and Brandon Williams. General Manager Ozzie Newsome and team president Dick Cass have made it their mission this offseason to improve the team and boost an 8-8 record from 2016. Now, it seems it's back to business as usual for the Ravens as The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec caught up with Cass at the owners meetings in...

NFL Network’s Lance Zierlein newest mock draft has Baltimore selecting Mike Williams

NFL Network’s Lance Zierlein newest mock draft has Baltimore selecting Mike Williams

NFL Network’s media draft analyst Lance Zierlein released his newest mock draft, mock draft 3.0, which has Baltimore selecting Clemson wide receiver Mike Williams. Below are Zierlein’s thoughts on the selection. “The Ravens pick up a big, go-to target with fantastic ball skills who has the potential to become a WR1.” It is hard to argue with anything bad about this pick. Personally, I would love it if the Ravens were able to pick Mike Williams. Williams is the best receiver in the draft and is exactly what Baltimore needs, a big-body receiver who can make contested catches. The way...

PFF: Ravens had top special teams unit in the NFL in 2016

PFF: Ravens had top special teams unit in the NFL in 2016

Not surprising Pro Football Focus has developed an algorithm to determine how much special teams contributed to team wins in 2016. Not surprisingly, the Baltimore Ravens special teams units were the very best and most impactful in the NFL last season: 1. Baltimore RavensJustin Tucker made the Ravens look good for giving him a four-year extension prior to the 2016 season, leading the league with 38 made field goals (in just 39 attempts), while not missing an extra point for the fifth time in his five seasons. He was PFF’s highest-graded kicker on field goals and extra points by a mile....

Poll: Indianapolis Colts release former Raven DL Arthur Jones. Should Baltimore bring him back?

Poll: Indianapolis Colts release former Raven DL Arthur Jones. Should Baltimore bring him back?

Where will the former Raven land next? The Baltimore Ravens drafted defensive end Arthur Jones in the 5th round of the 2010 NFL Draft out of Syracuse, and he would go on to help the Ravens win Super Bowl XLVII by registering a sack and a fumble recovery during the teams 34-31 win. He also notched 4.5 sacks during the 2012 regular season. 2013 was the final year of Jones rookie contract and he certainly made a statement that he deserved to be paid that upcoming offseason, notching 4.5 sacks and 53 tackles in 14 games. That offseason, Jones would not be disappointed as he signed a 5-year...

2017 NFL Draft Sleepers: Brendan Langley

2017 NFL Draft Sleepers: Brendan Langley

In this edition of 2017 NFL Draft sleepers, I will focus on Brendan Langley. Langley started his college career at the University of Georgia but after two years of limited playing time, he transferred to Lamar. In his two years at Lamar, Langley proved to be effective not only at cornerback but returner as well. In his senior year, he was tied for third in Division I-AA with six interceptions and added two punt returns for a touchdown. He was first-team all-conference. Now, it should be noted, he did play in a relatively weak Southland Conference. However, he was a star at the 2017 NFL...

Two day three pass rusher sleepers the Ravens should keep an eye on

Two day three pass rusher sleepers the Ravens should keep an eye on

Yesterday, I examined two cornerbacks that the Ravens could select on day three of the draft, whom could possibly turn into solid NFL players. Today, I’m going to look at pass rushers, starting with a player from Utah that dominated the Pac-12 all throughout the 2016 season. Hunter Dimick, EDGE, Utah Photo by George Frey/ After a senior season in which he totaled 14.5 sacks, Hunter Dimick somehow did not receive an invite to the NFL Combine. It’s not as if the 2016 season was the only one where Dimick produced big numbers. Dimick is the all time leader in sacks...

Could Ozzie Newsome again select a wide receiver in first round?

Could Ozzie Newsome again select a wide receiver in first round?

At the start of the offseason, Newsome and the Ravens brass identified a “complimentary receiver” as a role in need of being filled. But with immediate issues in the secondary being mitigated, the Ravens now have the opportunity to gamble on a wide receiver early in the draft and possibly in the first round, as the pass rusher and cornerback classes are the two deepest positions in the draft. There is no true number one receiver on the Ravens roster. To expect Breshad Perriman to make a tremendous third year jump while being in only his second season of extended playing time would back...

Two day three cornerback sleepers the Ravens should keep an eye on

Two day three cornerback sleepers the Ravens should keep an eye on

With the signing of Brandon Carr, the Ravens no longer have as much of a pressing need to draft a corner in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft. While the Ravens still should select a corner in the first three rounds in order to provide immediate depth, the team can now also select a developmental corner in the fifth or sixth round and allow them time to grow. Here are two talented cornerbacks that are likely to be day three picks, but whom could grow into starting caliber players in the NFL.

Edge rusher prospect Taco Charlton met with the Ravens on Thursday night

The Ravens have been making headlines with their pre-draft meetings, and Thursday night was no different. As per Jamison Hensley, Taco Charlton met with the Ravens on Thursday night. The Ravens also have a meeting scheduled with Washington wide receiver John Ross. Michigan's Taco Charlton, a potential first-round target, met with #Ravens on Thursday night https://t.co/oXKGwrNJdC— Jamison Hensley (@jamisonhensley) March 24, 2017 This does not mean the Ravens are dead-set on selecting Taco Charlton, if he is there. However, this could be a sign of the direction Baltimore wants to go...

The 16th pick has been a good spot for pass rushers

The 16th pick has been a good spot for pass rushers

The Baltimore Ravens currently own the 16th overall selection in the 2017 NFL draft. The 16th slot has seen its fair share of busts over the last ten drafts, but has also been a good place to find quality pass rushers and offensive lineman... 2016: Taylor Decker, OT, Lions Played surprisingly well as a rookie 16-game starter on the blindside, even outshining the Ravens own Ronnie Stanley according to some analysts. 2015: Kevin Johnson, CB, Texans Had a solid rookie season before going to injured reserve with a broken foot last year. 2014: Zack Martin, G, Cowboys One of the top right guards...

Poll: What round should the Ravens consider selecting CB Sidney Jones?

Poll: What round should the Ravens consider selecting CB Sidney Jones?

After proving at the 2017 NFL Combine that he was a top-tier cornerback in the 2017 NFL draft class, Sidney Jones ruptured his Achilles tendon at his Pro Day. It was bad news for him and for the Ravens. Baltimore was linked to Jones in several mock drafts but his draft stock plummeted after suffering the injury. The good news is Jones may still be able to play in 2017. He tweeted some encouraging news on Tuesday, March 21st. Surgery was great ✊ The doctor said that I will for sure be playing this upcoming season #DontCountMeOut — Sidney Jones IV (@SidneyJonesIV) March 21,...

Baltimore Ravens seven round mock draft 7.0

Baltimore Ravens seven round mock draft 7.0

This is the seventh edition of my seven round (technically six, the Ravens don’t have a seventh round pick) mock drafts for the Ravens. This is the first since the Ravens moved up in the sixth round with their Jeremy Zuttah trade. I used Fanspeak.com’s mock draft simulator to complete this seven round mock draft. Free agent signings and departures have influenced what needs the Ravens have and how they should be prioritized. Expect to see changes in this mock draft compared to previous ones, well, except for my first round selection. First Round: Corey Davis, WR, Western Michigan ...
