Welcome to the Daily Caw, where we round up all the latest Baltimore Ravens news and notes from around the web.  Today we ponder a potential explosion from Justin Forsett as a pass catcher under Marc Trestman, Brandon Williams is garnering national respect, a sleeping giant set to emerge, and can the Ravens win another Super Bowl in the near future?

How many catches could Justin Forsett have this year? Joseph Juan, NumberFire

"Known by many as the “Quarterback Whisperer,” Trestman’s ability to operate as a running backs guru reached the forefront following Matt Forte’s recent 100-plus reception season under his watch.And when we look back at Trestman’s track record as offensive coordinator, we see that Forte wasn’t merely a one-hit wonder."

"There has been plenty of talk about Timmy Jernigan playing a more prominent role on the Ravens’ defense next season after Haloti Ngata’s trade to the Lions. However, the Ravens have another defensive lineman with Pro Bowl potential — nose tackle Brandon Williams.After playing well as a starter in 2014, in only his second NFL season, Williams is getting his respect around the league. Case in point. NFL.com’s Bucky Brooks lists Williams as theleague’s fifth-best run stopper. His top four in order are Ndamukong Suh of the Dolphins, Marcell Dareus of the Bills, Aaron Donald of the Rams and Damon Harrison of the Jets."

"“He is already strong, he is already big, but it just seems like he’s moving around a lot better out here — a lot more fluid in his route running, catching passes, things like that,” starting running back Justin Forsett said of Gillmore.Gillmore may be a step slower than Williams, but his experience in the offense will keep him on the field regardless. The Ravens will ease Williams into action since he doesn’t come from a pass-heavy system, and any time Boyle sees will come as a blocker. At 6-foot-6, Gillmore gives Flacco a huge target underneath and in the red zone, and if the Ravens use as many two-tight end sets as they did last year, Williams will join him to provide a nice 1-2 punch."
