Ravens rookies' progress

Michael Oher continues to play well holding his own against nearly all challenges both in pass protection and run blocking. With the team’s depth chart taking a hit due to Adam Terry’s season ending knee surgery, I have to wonder how many are now challenging this first round pick and suggesting that the team should have opted for Hakeem Nicks or Kenny Britt…

Paul Kruger batted down a Troy Smith pass and exhibited toughness in special teams drills. He’s a high energy player who needs to develop some moves at the point of attack. Offensive linemen, particularly Oher, swallowed him up today once they engaged…

Lardarius Webb plays with toughness but today seemed a bit slow to recover after a receiver’s second move. He was beaten for a score during live scrimmaging by Harper from 2 yards out…

Jason Phillips saw more snaps today than he has the entire camp. While shaking off the rust, he was applauded by Ray Lewis for shooting the gap on a running play…Davon Drew sat out today…

Cedric Peerman fumbled at the 3 on a third and goal from the 2.
