Ravens news: 5 players whose stock is on the rise following OTAs
By Justin Fried
The Baltimore Ravens officially concluded their 10th and final day of OTAs on Friday. And with that, the final portion of voluntary offseason workouts has come to an end.
Rookie minicamp has come and passed. OTAs are no more. The next stage will be mandatory minicamp which will run from June 15-17 next week.
After that? It’s full speed ahead to training camp.
The absence of OTAs and a true offseason workout schedule last season makes this year’s workouts all the more important — both for returning veterans and young rookies.
And as is always the case, a number of players managed to make a strong impression on the team. Whether they were practicing with the organization for the first time or not, these players made quite the impact over the last two or so weeks.
As such, they managed to improve their stock.
The Ravens have a number of key roster battles to keep an eye on this spring and summer. While most starting spots are already determined, the competition for depth roles is as fierce as ever.
OTAs offered the first real opportunity to see those position battles unfold. And a few players certainly helped their cases.
Let’s take a look at five players who improved their stock with strong showings at OTAs.
