Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Eric DeCosta earns high markings for 2019 NFL Draft

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Eric DeCosta earns high markings for 2019 NFL Draft

Draft weekend is officially in the rearview mirror and the Baltimore Ravens now look ahead to the 2019 season.

Here's the latest news surrounding the team.

Player/Team Notes: 

1. With the conclusion of the 2019 NFL Draft comes NFL Draft grades. The Ravens selected eight players in six rounds, addressing most of their biggest needs on offense and defense, but how do analysis feel about their selections? 

Even Fansided's Rucker Haringey listed the Ravens as one of the top five teams that won the NFL Draft. 

2. The Ravens will be battling to defend their AFC North title this fall, and with the additions the Cleveland Browns made in the offseason it's primed to be just as good a battle as Sunday's Game of Thrones

Bleacher Report put together their post-NFL draft power rankings and the Ravens are sitting third in the AFC North and 19th overall. 

"If the Ravens can still get pressure on opposing quarterbacks this year despite those losses and Jackson improves as a passer, the Ravens will be a force to be reckoned with in their division," Bleacher Report wrote. "But if the defense backslides and Jackson's development stalls, the Ravens could also be a prime candidate to regress in 2019."

3. One of first-year general manager Eric DeCosta's goals this offseason was to keep the Ravens in good financial standing for the 2019 season and beyond. The NFLPA released their public salary cap report and Baltimore has $15,099,481 in cap space to use at their disposal. 

It will cost the Ravens an estimated $6,691,942 to sign their rookie class, according to Over The Cap, leaving the Ravens with money to spend in the second wave of free agency.

Looking Ahead:

May 3-6 or May 10-13: Potential three-day rookie mini camp

July 15: 4 p.m. deadline to get long-term deal done with designated franchise tag player

The 2019 NFL schedule is set!  See the Baltimore Ravens defend the AFC North at M&T Bank Stadium this season. Get your tickets now at www.BaltimoreRavens.com/tickets.

    Ravens' Marlon Humphrey gets creative for morning workout, climbs rock hill

    Ravens' Marlon Humphrey gets creative for morning workout, climbs rock hill

    With the NFL season on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, the beginning of OTAs and other training sessions have been delayed. Therefore, players have had to get creative with their workouts based on their surroundings.

    From truck pushing to weight-lifting sessions in mom and dad's driveway, there has been no shortage of unique workouts across the league. However, Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey may have just claimed the title of most creative.

    On Monday, the star defender shared a video on Twitter of a workout he and his brothers participated in. The three looked to be focusing on cardio and strength-building, but not in the way it's typically done. Finding a large pile of gravel and rocks, they took turns running up the terrain. It's easy to feel the burn in your thighs and calves just looking at it.

    Humphrey and his brothers made the exercise look rather easy, though it is certainly anything but that. Even the smallest piece of gravel on flat ground can sometimes trip someone up, and here, the cornerback is running up a hill composed entirely of it.

    After former Ravens safety Eric Weddle responded to the video by letting Humphrey know just how insane the workout is, Humphrey admitted it didn't last long.

    If this type of tricky surface isn't slowing Humphrey down, there isn't much that can. When the NFL season does begin, it could be a long year for opposing wide receivers who are tasked with somehow escaping his coverage.
