Ron Rivera: Steve Smith Needs To ‘Tone Things Down’

Ryan Mink, Baltimore Ravens

It’s not often you hear an NFL head coach raise concerns over a player practicing too hard.

But that’s what Carolina Panthers Head Coach Ron Rivera had to say about his former player and new Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith, Sr.

“One of the things in my opinion that Steve just needs to do is to learn to tone things down,” Rivera said at the NFL owners meetings Wednesday.

“He practices very hard, he gives 100 percent, he’s going to challenge you to do those things. At his age and seniority, he has to handle himself. … He’s going to wear himself down.”

Baltimore Ravens Draft Stock Watch: 8 Players Rising and Falling Down Big Board

Shehan Peiris, Bleacher Report

Taylor Lewan has only boosted his stock with his actions on the field, since he dominated the combine and put himself in the conversation with Greg Robinson and Jake Matthews as one of the best offensive tackles in this class.

Eric Ebron’s stock is going up as he has cemented himself as the best tight end prospect in the draft. He displayed his athleticism at the combine and looked very impressive at his pro day. According to Gil Brandt of NFL.com, Ebron looked “outstanding catching the ball” aside from a couple of drops.

Count this writer as one of the people who were firmly entrenched in Marqise Lee’s corner at the end of the college football season. His down year was the result of injuries, inconsistent quarterback play and coaching changes at USC. Turn the clock back to 2012, and you would see a receiver who could rival Sammy Watkins as the can’t-miss prospect at the receiver position in this draft.

Of all the wide receivers helping their draft stock, nobody is doing a better job than Brandin Cooks. He had arguably the best combine of any player, dazzling with a blazing 4.33 40-yard dash and showing in drills that he was far more than just a speedster.
