The Baltimore Ravens officially concluded their three-day mandatory minicamp on Thursday. OTAs and minicamp are in the past and spring practices are all done. The next stop en route to Week 1: training camp.

Minicamp presented yet another opportunity for the Ravens to get a close look at both the new and returning members of the roster. Much like with OTAs, the team took it easy — likely as a direct response to their injury-riddled 2021 campaign.

We’ll have a better picture of the state of the Ravens’ roster come training camp, but that doesn’t mean a few players weren’t able to impress during spring practices.

Let’s take a look at seven of the biggest standouts from the Ravens’ mandatory minicamp period.

7. Damarion Williams, CB, Ravens

The Ravens are looking for at least one of the young cornerbacks on their roster to step up this summer, and at least as far as the spring goes, Damarion Williams was that guy.

Williams recorded interceptions in consecutive practices on Wednesday and Thursday, including an impressive one thrown by undrafted rookie quarterback Anthony Brown.

The Athletic’s Jeff Zrebiec reported that Williams has “made a really good first impression” on the coaching staff. He might still be somewhat of a developmental player, but the former Houston standout has wasted little time getting acclimated.

The Ravens would love to be able to rely on their cornerback depth in 2022, and more performances like this from Williams will go a long way toward ensuring that’s the case.
