5. Zay Flowers is everything Baltimore Ravens fans want

Zay Flowers was the best player on the field on Monday night. That is not saying a ton from the Baltimore Ravens' perspective because the only other technical starter was at left guard in this game. However, Washington played their starters for the most part, and Flowers ate them up.

He beat rookie first-round pick Emmanuel Forbes, and Forbes was drafted before Flowers. This has capped off a winning training camp for the rookie, who should hit the ground running and carve out a role in week one.

Flowers has shown that he can be a return option if needed. He has worked down the field and has caught passes short and ran long. More than that, he has seen the most work with the starters. Odell Beckham is still being eased in and getting his veteran off days, and Rashod Bateman is just coming back to full health now. So, Flowers has been dominating the work. There is a real chance he leads the Ravens pass catchers this year, which would be impressive for a rookie.
