Ravens Roundup: Hollywood is coming to Charm City

Ravens Roundup: Hollywood is coming to Charm City

The first round of the 2019 NFL Draft has come and passed, and the Ravens have found a weapon for Lamar Jackson. 

Here is the latest Baltimore Ravens news.

Player/Team Notes:

1. Ravens selected Oklahoma WR Marquise "Hollywood" Brown with the No. 25 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Lamar Jackson's gets a deep threat for his second season in Baltimore. Brown (5’9/166) spent two years with the Sooners after transferring from JUCO, amassing a career 132/2,413/17 (18.3 YPR) receiving line as Baker Mayfield, then Kyler Murray’s go-to guy. Antonio Brown’s cousin, Marquise’s game is built on speed and explosion, leading all of Division I in catches of 50-plus yards (14) over the past two seasons.

In 2018, 35% of Brown’s receptions gained at least 20 yards. Ex-NFL scout Daniel Jeremiah called Brown’s tape the best in this year’s class and compared him to DeSean Jackson. Brown required Lisfranc foot surgery in February and didn’t run before the draft but is fully expected to be ready for training camp. Brown was a great real-life pick by the Ravens. It's his worst-case-scenario landing spot in fantasy football.

2. Ravens announce that superfan Miles Taylor, who despite having cerebral palsy, has gone viral for his inspirational deadlifting videos, will announce the team's third round selection Friday.

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Michael Pierce responds to last week's dismissal from practice

Kick off your Monday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news.

1. Last week, defensive tackle Michael Pierce was dismissed from practice after showing up in "less than ideal shape" according to The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec. Pierce joined WSNP-FM 105.5 Friday where he responded to being dismissed from practice. “Throughout the offseason, I tend to lift more than run,” Pierce said. “Being a nose guard, I want to be strong or what not. I, honestly, just mismanaged my running a little bit.”

2. On the other hand, tight end Mark Andrews looks "bigger, faster and stronger" Zrebiec said. Andrews had a standout year last season as a rookie with three touchdowns and 34 catches for 552 yards. Zrebiec said Andrews has not slowed down and will be an even bigger asset to the Ravens offense this season.


Looking Ahead:

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

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Lamar Jackson has his best practice yet

Kick off your Friday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news.

1. The Ravens are hopeful Earl Thomas will be a leader for their new defense which Thomas called "very complex." "This defense is very complex compared to what we were doing in Seattle,” Thomas said to Ravens media. “We were just playing Cover-3 all the time. Now, we’re making calls on the fly. That’s the biggest adjustment for me.”

Additionally, Thomas told media members after practice that he's made "fast friends" with quarterback Lamar Jackson. "He's a very funny guy, I don't know if you all know that," Thomas said.

2. Speaking of Lamar Jackson, he reportedly had his best day of practice so far this offseason according to Ravens media. Jackson's throws looked much better and he was quick in the pocket.
