We know all about the stars of training camp thus far, the big names that get all the attention from fans and the media alike. You know, the Steve Smiths, Torrey Smiths, and Terrell Suggs of the world. These guys make big play after big play and we “ooh and ahh” over them in each practice. But what about the emerging Ravens training camp sleepers we don’t see a ton of coverage on?
What about the guys whose names are not as well known? The guys who are consistently playing well and doing their jobs, even though it might not be in a splashy and obvious way. Or perhaps the guys who are overshadowed by the big names because they face long chances at making the final roster?
We are going to shine a light on three such players. These are guys who devotee fans may already be aware of, but coaches are gloating about. They may not be at the podium speaking in post practice press conferences, but they are doing what they need to do to make the team and become impact players down the road. You know, the very definition of “sleeper.” Click on for 3 emerging Ravens training camp sleepers you may not be aware of.
