The All-Pro tight finish is coming off the most effective season of his illustrious profession, and he seems to be even higher this offseason. Some of that little doubt is attributed to Lamar Jackson being right here on the early a part of camp this yr after being delayed by COVID final summer season, however Andrews additionally seems to be sooner coming out and in of his breaks, and appears to win by both getting vast open or on contested balls.
Right now, Andrews seems to be like the last word safety blanket for Jackson. Following some uneven reps in crimson-zone drills, Jackson turned to Andrews and hit pay filth. And every time Jackson discovered himself avoiding strain within the backfield, his eyes turned to Andrews, who simply doesn’t ever appear to let him down.
Assuming well being, which is all the time a dangerous proposition, anticipate Andrews to submit one other monster marketing campaign.
Also on the sphere:
— Kyle Hamilton and Isaiah Likely squared up a number of occasions in a single-on-ones, in addition to workforce drills, and so they had an amazing battle all through the day. Hamilton stayed in sticky protection and broke up a couple of passes, and Likely made a couple of powerful, contested catches. Iron seems to be sharpening iron within the case of those two rookies.
— Fellow security Chuck Clark stood out on Friday, breaking apart passes and offering good protection all through the day. Staying on a security lovefest, Tony Jefferson is a lot enjoyable to look at apply. Every rep is performed prefer it’s his final, and he’s smiling each time he comes off the sphere.
— Another man who appears to get pleasure from each second of enjoying soccer is Calais Campbell. The large man is consistently speaking, and he was seen providing course to some of his fellow linemen on Friday.
— On that line, Brent Urban continues to impress. He had a couple of disruptive performs on Friday, and so long as the Ravens can preserve his snaps down, I believe he’ll disrupt a couple of collection this season, and that may win you a sport. Justin Madubuike and Broderick Washington additionally stood out on a couple of performs.
— On the opposite aspect of the road, Morgan Moses had a pleasant day, standing out to me on two completely different performs, particularly. On one, he received beat on the snap on a go rep, however he received a very good angle and stored battling and Jackson was capable of step away and throw a very good go. On one other, Moses received into the second degree on a run play and made an impression.
— James Proche additionally had yet one more good day. Like Andrews, Proche appears to win by both shaking himself vast open or pulling in contested balls.
— Tylan Wallace had a pleasant day, and actually jumped out with a transfer he placed on Kevon Seymour in a single-on-ones. In that very same set of drills, rookie David Vereen made a pleasant go-breakup on a deep go.
— As for the undrafted rookie receivers, Shemar Bridges made a pleasant catch towards rookie Jalyn Armour-Davis in a single-on-ones, Slade Bolden had a pleasant route and sliding catch in crimson-zone drills and Makai Polk stood out on two completely different receptions in tight protection. Binjimin Victor, a second-yr participant making an attempt to make the workforce, had a couple of good performs, and was in all probability essentially the most spectacular of the younger guys on a day once they obtained additional reps with Rashod Bateman out.
— Damarion Williams had a good looking interception off Tyler Huntley, and weaved his method for a choose-six. I initially reported it was Jackson who threw the go, and that makes me a really unhealthy individual. A really, very unhealthy individual.
— Jackson largely threw the ball properly on the day, notably so on again-shoulder throws and the fast sport. If he brings these “new clubs” to the common season, this offense may very well be horrifying. Blitzes will get punished.
— Odafe Oweh received into the backfield so shortly on one snap I believed he should have began out again there. He additionally seems to be primed for an improved season forward. He simply seems to be so quick.
— Justin Houston received after Jackson on at the least two performs, one which resulted in a completion, and the opposite in crimson-zone drills when Jackson took off and scored along with his legs. It was one other reminder on how Jackson can disrupt a protection even once they do issues properly.
— Rookie operating again Tyler Badie was fairly quiet, however he had a spin transfer on a brief go close to the top of apply that drew some “oohs” and “ahhs.” There might need been an “ooh-ahh” in there, as properly, however I can’t put my hand on a Bible and swear to that one.
The Ravens are again at it tomorrow. See you there!
