After spending the morning at camp, I am wondering why Breshad Perriman is still on the team.

While his $649,485 bonus was pocket change to the Ravens, I just don’t see how he makes the final roster. Michael Crabtree, John Brown and Will Snead are essential locks to make the team. Tim White and Chris Moore both stand out and have been effective catching passes.

Also, rookie draft picks Jordan Lasley and Jaleel Scott have looked good early on in camp. Neither Lasley nor Scott have experienced the routine drops that hamper most rookie receivers. Both players look good and should have a bright future in purple.

Perriman should be the odd man out. 

Other Notes

— Speaking of White and Lasley, both got their shot today as kick returners. White was far better, showing explosion when he caught that ball. Lasley didn’t fair as well, muffing two kicks. 

— I love the intensity of rookie safety DeShon Elliott. During the 11-on-11 drills, he knocked receiver Jaelon Acklin to the ground. Elliott did try to pull up and avoid the hit. He goes 100 mph and I love his fire. I just hope he can control it in the games. He “Plays like Raven.”

— With Ronnie Stanley missing practice today, the line from left to right consisted of Jermaine Eluemunor, Alex Lewis, Matt Skura, James Hurst and Orlando Brown, Jr. Brown was getting extra attention from the coaches. That is not a bad thing. My take: It’s clear the Ravens want him start this year and a little extra guidance can go along way. 

— The RPO is alive and well in Baltimore.

The Ravens spent individual drills working with all the QBs and the run-pass option. Not surprisingly, Lamar Jackson was the most effective. His speed is even more impressive in person. While there was no hitting, you could clearly see he has that extra gear that will allow him to run through the defense. Even Joe Flacco got into the action, pulling the ball back and taking it for a run, which drew a round of applause from the fans in attendance.

— Additionally, the two QBs in the backfield may become a staple this year as well. With Flacco under center, he pitched the ball back to Jackson, who was able to find receivers open downfield on two occasions. This is an interesting wrinkle to the offense after having a pretty vanilla game plan in previous years.

— As for the tight ends, I think Maxx Williams will be the odd man out. Rookies Hayden Hurst and Mark Andrews are already set to make the team, Nick Boyle will serve as the blocking TE and Vince Mayle should make it on his special teams play. Williams is yet another reminder of the disappointing 2015 draft. Williams also had two drops during individual drills when he was wide open after shaking the defender.

— File this away for later: UDFA Nick Keizer ran with the first team in two tight-end sets with Hurst out with an injury. Remember, Keizer personally worked out with Greg Roman prior to this draft. While he is most likely headed to the practice squad, don’t be surprised if he gets paid extra by the team to stay around.

— Lastly, the Randy Hymes award for the receiver who fans will love during meaningless preseason games goes to DeVier Posey. He had another good day at practice, but probably gets caught up in the numbers game. This will ultimately lead to fans expressing frustration, insinuating the coaching staff doesn’t recognize talent.
