3. Two under-the-radar Ravens players shine

The Ravens already have an incredibly deep cornerback room — more on that later — and they bolstered their wide receiver corps in the offseason as well. As a result, both position groups remain pretty stacked.

That said, two under-the-radar names could put their names in consideration for a roster spot if they continue to play as well as they have been. Those players are wide receiver Jaylon Moore and cornerback Khalil Dorsey.

Both players were signed as undrafted free agents following the 2020 NFL Draft, and they each made some waves during the summer.

Moore was a training camp standout and spent the entirety of the season on the team’s practice squad. As for Dorsey, he played in six games as a rookie, almost exclusively on special teams.

Each of them has once again made an impact during minicamp this season.

Moore has shown a lot more consistency and made a few nice grabs during Tuesday’s practice. Meanwhile, Dorsey recorded a trio of pass breakups and earned some praise from cornerback Marcus Peters after one of them.

Both players face uphill battles to make the final roster given the depth the team has at each position. But more performances like this will go a long way toward accomplishing their end goal.
