A look at where I think the chart stands with the latest additions. Whose stock is rising and falling. Which young guys are making waves (good and bad).

Since I like the obscure: What are you hearing about Trent Steelman? Thought he was an intriguing pickup for the Ravens. Haven't heard from him since May, so I'm wondering what the team's plans are for him. 

 

I'd also naturally love to see Furstenburg make the team, so you think they keep him as a backup TE or go with Bajema?

"Offense:  Booby Rainey made a case as a possible return specialist option."

 

 

 

Should this be his new nickname?

From what I've read, he took the teams physical back in May, passed it, but is required to complete two years military service. Since he took said physical, the Ravens have first rights to sign him when that two years is up.

I'd love to see Furstenberg prevail over Bajema. I think he brings more to the table. Bajema is one-dimensional, a run blocker only. Since we resigned Leach, and Pitta is out, I think we need more pass catchers.

Interesting. I really like the kid and think he could be a good piece for someone moving forward. Perhaps how the Jags use Denard Robinson could dictate how other teams use a guy like Steelman. Kid's got a lot of heart.

Yes, it should.

 

Many of the nicknames given to athletes by my friends over the years often involve mishaps like this.

 

Go Booby!

I don't really agree with Butt's analysis in regards to several "bubble" players. My takes:

 

Allen over Carter at RB. If Carter was some kind of special talent at RB Indy wouldnt have given him away. Allen is a proven ST player and a big reason why Jacoby had several huge returns last season. He may not be a proven RB, but is that really the role of the 3rd RB on the Ravens?

 

Doss over Mellette at WR. Doss may not have had a great preseason, but his experience gives him an edge IMO. Mellette doesn't look ready to me. He could find himself on the PS or IR. I also get the feeling DT may be headed to IR. I don't think we carry 7 WRs.

 

Bajema over Furstenburg at TE. I like Furstenburg as a prospect, but he has looked awful when asked to be an in-line blocker. The Ravens ask their 3rd TE to block quite a bit, so why keep Furstenburg? He ends up on PS.

 

Deangelo Tyson (DT) over Nigel Carr (ILB). Tyson has been excellent this preseason, definitely better than Carr. If it comes down to ST, Carr may get the nod but I think Tyson has earned himself a role on the team.

 

Anthony Levine over Omar Brown at Safety. Levine is bigger and more of an asset in run support and ST. Brown has flashed ability against 2nd stringers for 2 years now, but I give Levine the edge. It is possible that both are kept if only 6 WRs are retained.

Agreed on Allen/Carter. I think the Carter/Reed trade was a move between a couple of coaches who have worked together to try to free up some space on both their rosters.

Doss, I would rathet roll tbe dice with a guy that has more potential. Mellette, Brown. Doss has had enough opportunities.

If you're gonna have two FBs, I think you can afford to cut Bajema and roll with an extra pass catcher in Furstenburg.

I wanna see Tyson make it too.

Levine and Brown can both make it with Christian Thompson serving his suspension.

In short yardage situations that 3rd TE becomes an important position. I don't think 2 FBs nullifies not having a decent blocking TE because you aren't going to line up Juice as an inline blocker and expect him to do what a big TE can.

True. Each guy brings something different to the table. I'll think which ever decision they make will be the right one.

Disagree on every one of these except Tyson.
