DeAngelo Tyson Quietly Making Noise

Quietly going about his business each and every day Ravens defensive end DeAngelo Tyson is making loud noises for the team as they head into their second week of training camp.

The former Georgia Bulldog drafted by the Ravens in the seventh round of the 2012 draft is vying for the starting role on the Ravens defensive front which was vacated when Arthur Jones left via free agency.

In 2013, the 6-2, 315 pound produced 10 tackles (9 solo), one sack, one pass defensed and his first career interception. Looking to pick up where he left off in 2013, Tyson’s positional coach Clarence Brooks spoke glowingly about his young lineman.

“DeAngelo [Tyson] came in as a seventh-round draft choice and lined up and played for us in that Super Bowl game. Tremendous kid. Tremendous human being. He [has] been very valuable – plays all over the front for us.”

Tyson is facing some stiff competition for a beefed up defensive line that features a mixture of both youth and experience. Throughout the first week of camp, Tyson has been flip flopping between the first and second team defenses splitting reps with Brandon Williams and Chris Canty.

“He’s [Tyson] trying to get himself a starting job, so there’s real good competition in the whole group across the front,” Brooks stated at the podium on Wednesday.

“He wants to start, Brandon [Williams] wants to start, Chris [Canty] … We can’t start everybody, but we can all go out there and compete, and that’s what they’re doing every day.”

During practice on Wednesday, Tyson turned in a solid day disrupting quarterbacks Joe Flacco and Tyrod Taylor and batting down 2 passes while drawing praise from his coaches and teammates.

The quiet nature of Tyson was on full display, even after batting down those two passes during the teams two minute drills. In businesslike fashion DeAngelo simply returned to his position. There wasn’t any celebration or even a hand shake — signs that he is focused on his main objective.

    Tyson has been a tangential, non-core player during his first 2 years in the NFL – maybe it’s time for him to break out.

  2. Brian Tray on said:

    We are very fortunate to have this kind of depth up front. Even with the loss of Urban we still have one of the most talented and deep defensive lines in the NFL. No one will make a living running against Ngata, Williams, Jernigan and Canty. Tyson is a great backup for all four.
    Not to be too biased, but we also have one of the deepest and most talented group of linebackers in the NFL. Suggs, Dumervil, Smith, Mosely, Brown, Upshaw and McPhee could start on any team in the NFL.
    Our secondary is a work in progress but having Elam, Webb and Smith is a good foundation. I like Asa Jackson and Darian Stewart to round out that group. Depth is a concern in the secondary.
    All in all this looks like the best Raven defense to take the field in a long time. Easily could be a top 5 defense or better.

  3. Brian Tray on said:

    P.S. I think our secondary will greatly improve about mid season once Hill becomes available and Brooks gets up to speed. Hopefully we get to game 6 with a 4-2 or 5-1 record. We’ll be tough to beat after that.

      Yup I believe so too. Even though I still believe Canty can be but for cap and playing reasons his spot seems safe with Urban getting injuired. Urban will be the Lewis-Moore of next year and by then I don’t anticipate Canty being on the team. But I still like our depth. Actually I wonder if any of those undrafted defensive lineman we drafted can start making noise because I haven’t heard anything from none of them. Open spot to make the roster. Time to take advantage of it
