The Baltimore Ravens had their first official day of mandatory minicamp on Tuesday. The three-day event will run from June 15-17 and will feature the entire Ravens roster reconvening for the first time this spring.
The goal for the 2021 season will be no different than in prior years for the Ravens. After reaching the postseason in three consecutive seasons, Baltimore is looking to get over the proverbial hump and compete with the AFC’s best.
They’re out for vengeance after a disappointing 17-3 loss to the Buffalo Bills in the Divisional Round of the postseason crushed their Super Bowl dreams a year ago.
It all starts with spring workouts. And now that OTAs are over, the next stop on our way to the regular season is minicamp.
There isn’t too much of a difference between OTAs and mandatory minicamp, at least in terms of the content of each set of practices.
There are individual drills, 7-on-7 drills, and full 11-on-11 scrimmages, but we’re still in the non-contact portion of the offseason.
As a result, it’s oftentimes difficult to gauge the performances of players and units alike. Nonetheless, we could still take Tuesday’s practice and analyze a few takeaways from the day.
Let’s take a look at three of the more notable takeaways from the first day of mandatory minicamp.
