After a long season, training camp started finally later in the week. The defensive line is a relocation group that completely have the ability to make the Ravens defense terrible. The young group of down lineman on the Ravens have exciting untapped potential and good ability of internal communication.
Traditionally, the Ravens have carried between five and seven defensive lineman in the regular season's list of 53-man roster. Six or seven lineman seems to be a realistic projection to consider the amount of draft capital the Ravens have used on their defensive line over the last several drafts.
Carl Davis, the second-year Iowa player, seems to be the second in the technology of zero. Davis started last season strong, show the good strength and block eating ability, before hitting the well-known rookie wall down the stretch. Davis also shows his skill in knocked down after the battle line. He will be a big impact in 2016 after an offseason in the weight room and increased motivation under new DL coach Joe Cullen.
Carl Davis was a man among boys in his final years with the Iowa Hawkeyes, but in the NFL, he learned to how fast you can be humbled. Selected by the Baltimore Ravens in the third round, Davis was a steal in yet another strong class by Ozzie Newsom and his staff in the front office.
Davis was truly dominant at times in his years with the Hawkeyes, and had the look of a possible first round pick in a few games.
The Ravens clearly spoke very highly of Davis, but it appears he will put the Baltimore by storm as a rookie, expected to be tempered.
Despite the rocky rookie year, the potential is very high, although Davis is the third round pick, and the Ravens happened to have an opening at one of the defensive end spots opposite Timmy Jernigan. Will have a guy from Lawrence Guy and third round pick Bronson Kaufusi, but Davis has been to be considered, in my opinion, the most like.
Davis is a unique mixture of size and speed. He took 6-5, 320 pounds of incredibly good, if he keep the low level of pad, he can use his length and upper body strength of absolute advantage.
Want to learn from people like Brandon Williams, he is still a young player, Davis is getting to see that consistency is the key in the NFL. The physical tools must be there. There is certainly a desire to get better. Whether he will be able to maintain a consistently high level of play along with all of those intangibles remains to be seen.
He wants to be one of Joe Flacco's (closing anterior cruciate ligament tear himself) division 2016 in the first target of the ball, as Steve Smith (from his Achilles tendon if he returns at the end of last season), Mike Wallace, and Kamar Aiken.
Drafting mainly by his speed is a deep threat, the Ravens just wants to keep his break through these Perriman knee problems.During Wallace's short time with the Ravens, he often in the practice of OTA, teammates and Hubble in praise about how the veteran has conducted himself and performed on the field. The Ravens will have to wait and see the impact Perriman will lead to the attack, but they have already excited about what Wallace adds."He is not only a profound threat, but he play a role, not only on the scene but on controversial penalty," Ravens security Eric Weddle said. "There is a reason why he is one of the best wide receivers in a few years ago, before the league, because he has talented, can run very fast. He has committed, he is eager to prove himself."
