The Baltimore Ravens concluded their 2021 rookie minicamp on Sunday officially ending the first stage of their offseason workouts.

The three-day event was the team’s first chance to get a look at their new rookies including all eight 2021 NFL Draft picks, their undrafted signings, and a few minicamp invites looking to secure a contract.

While it’s never wise to put too much stock into the first set of workouts, especially without pads or defenders, rookie minicamp does provide an initial glimpse into the potential future of the organization.

After all, first impressions are significant.

The next time the Ravens will convene as a team will be May 25th for the first batch of OTAs. But this past weekend was unique in that it was an opportunity for the rookies to shine.

Baltimore will be looking to get over the figurative hump in 2021 after three straight playoff disappointments. To do so, they’ll need to receive some early contributions from their 2021 NFL Draft class.

That includes their two first-round picks, but it extends beyond that as well. The Ravens have seen their fair share of mid-to-late-round picks and even undrafted rookies make a name for themselves in years past.

They’re hoping that this year is no different.

With rookie minicamp now in the rearview mirror, we take a look at three takeaways from the event.
