It was the type of play that confirmed why the Ravens drafted Likely in the fourth spherical. He caught 133 passes for 2,050 yards and 27 touchdowns throughout his faculty profession at Coastal Carolina. His agility for somebody listed at 6-foot-4, 235 kilos has already impressed teammates.
“He’s got a natural, kind of knack-feel for the game,” Andrews mentioned. “He’s really fluid. When he sees something open, he takes it. He’s got a little bit of me in him, for sure.”
Asked what he desires from Likely as coaching camp continues, Head Coach John Harbaugh mentioned, “Keep staking them and keep learning. He has a lot to learn; he’s learning the offense every day. Every day there is new stuff tacked on to the previous stuff. But, he’s handling it well.”
Here are another coaching camp observations:
- Jackson’s favourite goal was Rashod Bateman, as the 2 clicked for a number of good completions. Their finest connection was a back-shoulder toss that was just like the back-shoulder completion Jackson made to Devin Duvernay on Day 1. Jackson and Bateman each loved one other sturdy apply day.
- Third-year linebacker Malik Harrison, who’s attempting to earn extra taking part in time, confirmed up shortly on a blitz up the center. Harrison had 9 sacks throughout his profession at Ohio State, and if he continues to generate stress on quarterbacks, it should solely assist his case.
- During the ultimate 11-on-11 session, Calais Campbell (6-foot-8), Brent Urban (6-foot-7) and Odafe Oweh rushed the quarterback concurrently on a number of performs and made it tough for Jackson to search out throwing lanes over the center. The Ravens‘ entrance seven doesn’t lack gamers with huge wingspans.
- A humorous second occurred when Stephens was flagged for go interference in opposition to Duvernay and each Marlon Humphrey and Tony Jefferson protested the decision. Humphrey and Jefferson jumped up and down and yelled with a lot ardour that the referee checked out each of gamers and beginning to snicker as he jogged away.
- Veteran nostril deal with Michael Pierce had second stable day of apply after not taking part in obligatory minicamp in June. Pierce is anticipated to be counted on as run-stopped in the defensive position rotation.
- Jefferson made a fast break on a go try throughout 7-on-7 drills, and whereas Jefferson did not cease the completion, he had one other day when he was buzzing across the secondary. With Jefferson, Marcus Williams, Chuck Clark, Kyle Hamilton and Geno Stone all getting reps, the Ravens have security depth to envy.
