2. Do the Ravens really need more pass rushers?

3. Did Baltimore really draft the Offensive Rookie of the Year?

2. Do the Ravens really need more pass rushers?

Yes, yes they do. But bear with me for a minute here.

I was not present at the Under Armour Performance Center on Tuesday. There were many folks out there watching the first joint practice between the Ravens and the Commanders live on location. And they did God's work in sharing their thoughts and reporting on what was going on.

Ryan Mink of BaltimoreRavens.com reported that Odafe Oweh had three "sacks" against the Commanders' first-team offensive line. Mink added that fellow OLB Malik Hamm "also had an unblocked sack" and that he "got good pressure on the day."

Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Banner captured a pressure by Oweh on the Commanders' quarterback following those three sacks.

In his own practice report, which focused on the defensive side of the ball, Shaffer comprehensively described Oweh's day saying that he "had a would-be sack on the Commanders’ first play," and "a few periods later, he beat [an LT] on an outside rush for another sack."

Shaffer pointed out that Oweh "got his third after stunting inside," and reported CB Marlon Humphrey's words after practice quoting the defensive leader saying "Oweh and Ojabo have been 'looking really good' in camp."

Of course, the Ravens would do good adding at least some warm/rotational bodies to the fold at the EDGE position. Outside of Oweh and David Ojabo, there is only another starter-caliber outside linebacker in Tyus Bowser.

The Ravens have hosted Jadeveon Clowney (they already have offered him a contract) and Kyle Van Noy in the past few weeks and any of those additions would make a lot of sense.

The cornerback room already saw some additions arrive through training camp, so expect new signings to make their way to the EDGE stable soon.
