"The success of rookie receivers in recent years gives the Ravens more hope that Perriman can be a reliable playmaker from Day 1. Three rookies had more than 1,000 yards receiving last year – Odell Beckham of the Giants (1,305), Mike Evans of the Buccaneers (1,051), and Kelvin Benjamin of the Panthers (1,008).Eight rookies had at least 50 catches – Beckham (91), Jarvis Landry of the Dolphins (84), Benjamin (73), Evans (68), Jordan Matthews of the Eagles (67), Sammy Watkins of the Bills (65), Brandin Cooks of the Saints (53), and Allen Hurns of the Jaguars (51)."

"The defensive tackle was Detroit’s biggest acquisition of the offseason, and is expected to shoulder much of the responsibility for replacing Ndamukong Suh. But he’s skipped the final two rounds of OTAs while tending to a personal matter, including Wednesday’s practice in Allen Park.Detroit will hold its final OTA on Thursday, and Ngata is expected to miss that one as well."
