The Ravens top four receiver spots are set. It’s the players after that who have nothing locked up. Things couldn’t have gone worse for the young wide receivers trying to make the roster. Tim White and Janarion Grant both fumbled as a punt returner. Punt returner happens to be the best way to make the roster, because Baltimore needs to fill that job badly. This makes the fumbles of White and Grant troubling. Because both players committed the same mistake, neither player can pull ahead in the competition.
Jordan Lasley had the worst night of all. Lasley couldn’t come away with a catch on a quick slant from Lamar Jackson. To be fair, Lasley didn’t have a chance to make a play, but he didn’t create any separation. When Robert Griffin III was tasked with finishing the game, Lasley ran a beautiful route and got open down the field. He dropped the ball on what would have been a touchdown. It would be one thing if it was a bad throw, but it was a perfect through and he was open.
11 different Ravens had one reception in the game, which means no receiver was able to standout once the starters left the game. There is a very noticeable difference between the Ravens top 4 receivers (Crabtree, Brown, Snead and Moore) and the rest of the receivers on the Ravens over sized camp roster. The last two to three roster spots for wide receivers are up for grabs going into the Ravens dress rehearsal game against the Miami Dolphins.
