2. Will Laquon Treadwell secure a roster position through the preseason?
One of the main performers on Day 14 of training camp was former first-round pick by the Minnesota Vikings and veteran WR Laquon Treadwell.
The oft-labeled "bust," who has yet to truly explode to the heights of the hype he carried into the NFL from college, signed with the Ravens last June after spending four years in Minny followed by short, one-year stints at Atlanta, Jacksonville, and lastly Seattle.
According to Chris Schisler of Russell Street Report, Treadwell "suffered two drops but secured a handful of fantastic grabs" on Thursday's session. "One of his drops came against Brandon Stephens [although] it was more of an impressive play by Stephens than a knock against Treadwell."
Schisler also reported that Treadwell "had a high-volume day" and "more positive plays than negative."
Head Coach John Harbaugh was happy about the bulky wideout room and seems to have no problem with it being so large that even after cutting Makai Polk yesterday it still boasts as many as 12 other wide receivers.
"Tylan [Wallace] and James [Proche], those guys are both having a great camp," Harbaugh said, per Clifton Brown of BaltimoreRavens.com. "Treadwell has done a great job, made a bunch of plays. Tarik Black has made a bunch of plays. Shemar [Bridges] made a nice play out there today."
The coach also thinks the Ravens' young receivers "are doing a great job," and overall believes all of the wide receivers of the team "have really shown up," and "not just the top five guys."
The first depth chart released by the Ravens PR team a few days ago listed Odell Beckham Jr., Rashod Bateman, Zay Flowers, Nelson Agholor, and Devin Duvernay as the top-five wide receivers.
Following them as the lone third-string wide receiver listed in the DC, was Laquon Treadwell. Then, a group of seven wideouts comprised the fourth-string group although that's now down to six men following the news of Makai Polk's release before Day 14 of training camp.
