Some notes on the Ravens 2018 Undrafted Free Agents. Note this list is not yet an official one. 

Du’Vonta Lampkin, DT, Oklahoma – 6’4″ 335lbs: He’s massive. He was a RS sophomore at Oklahoma. NFL Draft Analysis indicated that he’s not much of a pass-rusher, but he’s pretty good against the run. Has some maturity issues and stamina isn’t too impressive.

Gus Edwards, RB, Rutgers – 6’2″ 230lbs: More of a power back, but his highlight vids show a downhill runner. Reminds me a bit of Buck Allen. He started out at The U before transferring to Rutgers. He ran a 4.52 and a 10’3″ broad jump at 235lbs.

Devron Davis, CB, UT-San Antonio – 6′ 210lbs: He’s the younger cousin of Vernon and Vontae Davis. He went to high school and played against Brandin cooks.

Mason McKenrick, LB, John Carroll – 6’3″ 220lbs: He played running back in high school and in college he was more of a LB/S hybrid. He feels like his speciality is playing in space and in coverage. In 2017 he had 71 tackles, 10 for loss, 5 passes defensed, 4 sacks, and 2 picks with one being returned for a TD. He was also their punt and kick returner.

Kaare Vedvik, K/P, Marshall – 6’4″ 210lbs: He can punt and he can kick. He is able to kick with both his left and right legs. He had a 92 yard punt in October of last year in a game.

Christian LaCouture, DT, LSU – 6’5″ 300lbs: Probably a 5-technique for us. He’s in great shape and able to handle playing a lot of snaps, but he’s not all that explosive. NFL-DOT-COM’s draft analysis has him listed as a PS guy with upside as a rotational DE in a 3-4.

Jaelon Acklin, WR, Western Illinois – 6’2″ 195lbs: Had over 1,300 yards and 10 TD’s last year for Western Illinois. Only 2 other receivers since 2000 have posted better 3-cone drill, short-shuttle, and vertical. Really raw, but athleticism is up there with some of the more elite players in the league.

Alvin Jones, LB, UTEP – 5’11” 233lbs: Seems like he’s a similar player to Bam Bradley or Donald Payne. Had 102 tackles last year plus 10 for loss, 3 forced fumbles, and 4.5 sacks. Could be a solid ST’er.

Randin Crecelius, OL, Portland State – 6’5″ 310lbs: Played LT at Portland State. As a player, compares himself to Joe Staley. Pros are that he keeps a good base with good knee bend. Cons are he has heavy feet. I wouldn’t be surprised if they moved him around a fair amount to figure out the best spot for him.

Chris Board, DB, North Dakota State – 6’1″ 220lbs: I’ve seen him listed anywhere from 205lbs to 230lbs and a defensive back and a linebacker. So, I’m not really sure what the Ravens have in mind for him.

James Crawford, LB, Illinois – 6’1″ 240lbs: He played DE/OLB at Illinois. Based on his stats, looks like he was a rotational player. He had 26 tackles, 4 sacks, and 5 tackles for loss. He did, however, have 4 passes defensed last year. So, maybe he’s decent in coverage? Looks like he’s pretty versatile.

Alex Thompson, C, Monmouth – 6’3″ 305lbs: Started 44 straight games at center for Monmouth. Also has a background in wrestling. Was First Team, All Big South Conference in 2017. Part of an OL that gave up the 2nd fewest sacks on a team with the most passing attempts.

Andre Levrone, WR, Virginia – 6’2″ 215lbs: He’s a big dude with long arms. He had 689 yards and 7 TD’s while averaging over 20 yards per catch. So, he has some vertical ability. Local kid from Laurel, MD.
