1. Calais Campbell, DL, Ravens
Even pushing 35-years-old, Calais Campbell showed on Tuesday that he still has plenty left in the tank.
The 14-year veteran put on a show on Tuesday and was the most dominant player on either side of the ball. If live tackling was allowed, Campbell would have had at least three or four sacks.
He was a constant presence in the backfield whether the offense was running or passing and he looked just as dominant playing on both the edge and interior.
This was peak Calais Campbell. The Calais Campbell that has made six Pro Bowls in the last seven seasons. And the Calais Campbell that will likely one day be enshrined in Canton.
Campbell may be ancient by NFL years, but he isn’t washed up yet. The Ravens will be leaning on Campbell and a veteran-heavy defensive line to set the tone up front this season.
The longtime Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman needs eight sacks to reach 100 on his career — a milestone that few NFL players could say they’ve reached.
It’s a lofty goal, but one that he could easily reach if he plays like this in the regular season.
Campbell is signed through the 2021 season, but his future beyond this year remains very much in doubt.
However, he could go out in style if he helps the Ravens reach the promised land while also hitting his sack goal.
Tuesday’s practice showed that both of those things are very much possible.
