The first week of Organized Team Activities is historical past. It was enjoyable watching Roquan Smith dash onto the sphere, a slimmer Lamar Jackson throwing passes, and the spectacular presence of Derrick Henry.

As the Ravens proceed early preparations for a promising 2024 season, listed here are 10 ideas from me, all in 50 phrases or much less:

Kyle Hamilton turned an All-Pro in his second season, but it surely’s apparent he is pushed for extra after watching and listening to him at OTAs. Zach Orr believes Hamilton is able to profitable Defensive Player of the Year at some point. That day will not be distant.

Jalyn Armour-Davis had a wonderful two days of apply throughout OTAs open to the media. Injuries have prevented Armour-Davis from changing into an everyday a part of the cornerback rotation throughout his first two seasons. But he appears able to struggle for a roster spot and taking part in time.

It’s laborious to explain how bodily imposing Derrick Henry is. Zay Flowers mentioned he was startled by Henry when he ran close to Flowers on a stretch play. Flowers was laughing, but it surely will not be humorous when Henry runs this fall, particularly with Pat Ricard as a lead blocker.

Henry made a number of good catches throughout practices, and it is typically missed that he has 155 profession receptions. Throwing the ball to Henry is one other solution to get him in area, matched one-on-one towards a defender who needs no a part of tackling him.
