How Raven Blue Jays Custom Jersey s’ Rookie Tight Ends Can Complement Each Other Well

Baltimore has a history of drafting two tight ends in the same year, though they’ve typically had a veteran starter ahead of them. This year, the Ravens’ rookies should get plenty of opportunities.

When the Ravens drafted Hayden Hurst in the first round, Mark Andrews, sitting at home with his family, didn’t cross Baltimore off his list of possible destinations.

“The Ravens have always had a history of loving their tight ends, so it was never out of the picture for me,” Andrews later said.

Sure enough, in the third round, the Ravens selected Andrews with pick No. 86 overall. For the third time in the past nine years, Baltimore took tight ends in the same class.

“It’s exciting having Hayden and I on the table, and being able to work off each other is going to be a big thing,” Andrews said. “We’re going to be able to grow and compete with each other and have healthy competition where we’re able to grow as players.”

So how will the rookies complement each other?

The 6-foot-3, 250-pound Hurst is a jack-of-all-trades tight end. He’s a strong blocker and top-notch receiver, which allows Baltimore to use him in any situation to keep opponents guessing.

Hurst has the quickness, strength and toughness to be a top-notch receiver, especially over the middle and in picking up first downs. He can stretch the seam of opponent’s defenses while also doing a lot of the dirty work underneath.

“I think it’s a great fit,” Hurst said. “In our ‘12’ personnel, we get in there, we kind of work off each other and feed off each other’s energy. I’m excited to get out there and play with him.”

Andrews, meanwhile, is currently more of a big-bodied wide receiver since he mostly lined up wide in Oklahoma’s spread offens Toronto Blue Jays Custom Jersey e, where he caught 22 touchdowns in three seasons. If the Ravens are looking for a big target in the red zone, Andrews is the guy.

St Blue Jays Custom Jersey Cheap anding in at 6-foot-4, 256 pounds, he has the size to be a blocker, and said he intends to work diligently at that part of his game, but he’s likely going to be asked to do more as a pass-catcher than people-mover at this time.

“Hayden is an extremely aggressive player,” Andrews said. “I think we can work off each other and use our strengths and whatnot. … It’s going to be Custom Blue Jay Jersey tough on defenses to be able to game-plan for us.”

The rookie tight ends should get more offensive opportunities than their predecessors. Williams set the franchise record for most receiving yards (268) by a tight end in his rookie season. Hurst or Andrews could break that mark.

When Todd Heap (first round) was drafted in 2001, he was behind Shannon Sharpe. When Ed Dickson (third round) and Dennis Pitta (fourth round) arrived in 2010, they studied from Heap for a year. When Maxx Williams (second round) and Nick Boyle (fifth round) came in 2015, Crockett Gillmore led the way.

With the departure of Benjamin Watson in free agency, the Ravens have a lot of opportunities for receiving tight ends. Watson led Baltimore in receptions (61) Men’s Customized Toronto Blue Jays Majestic Flexbase Authentic Alternate Royal Blue Jersey  last year and saw the second-most targets (79). Boyle caught 28 passes for 203 yards and Williams caught 15 for 86 yards.

It’s only been a few days and they’re still in shorts, but Hurst and Andrews made a good first impression at Ravens rookie minicamp.

Head Coach John Harbaugh said the first thing that stuck out to him about his rookie tight ends were their “excellent” hands. He also noticed their very good body control to get in and out of breaks and shield off defenders. He liked their feel for coverage.

The other big thing that Harbaugh pointed to is their willingness to learn. They know they could have a big role together this season.

“They’re the kind of guys that want to know everything,” Harbaugh said. “They want to know every answer, they want to know every detail of every play, sometimes to the point where you just want to say, ‘Hey! Just play fast. You’re not going to know everything right now.’ But they’re conscientious guys that way.”

Stakes

The Steelers would clinc Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 54 Roberto Osuna Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Jersey h the AFC North with a win or tie. The Ravens can’t clinch a playoff spot, but they could put more pressure on Pittsburgh in the AFC North race, which hasn’t been decided yet, and would take a big step forward in the wild-card chase. The Russell Martin Jersey Ravens have nearly a 90 percent chance of reaching the postseason as of now. A win would dramatically increase those odds.

History

Since 2008, when Head Coach John Harbaugh and quarterback Joe Flacco arrived, the Ravens and Steelers are split with an 11-11 record, including the playoffs. Overall, the Steelers still lead the regular-season series, 23-20. Pittsburgh has won the last two meetings, including 26-9 victory Week 4 at M&T Bank Stadium. The last time the Ravens went to Heinz Field, the Steelers stole a Christmas win (and the division title) on an Antonio Brown touchdown with nine seconds left. Before that, the Ravens had won five of the previous seven matchups.

Key Storylines

Will Offensive Momentum Carry Over?
The Ravens broke out with 37 offensive points against the Detroit Lions last week. They were more aggressive in the passing attack and Joe Flacco had his best game of the season. Was that game-specific to the Lions, or has Baltimore begun to shake up its offensive approach? Offensive Coordinator Marty Mornhinweg pointed to Flacco’s improved health as part of the reason for his recent improvement. This week, Flacco said he loves playing in Heinz Field.

Ravens Defense Without Jimmy Smith
Top Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith went down wi Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 54 Roberto Osuna Toronto Blue Jays Home White Baseball Jersey th a torn Achille Toronto Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey s in last week’s game. In past years, that’s been a death blow for Baltimore’s secondary, but the Ravens feel more equipped to handle the loss this season with first-round rookie Marlon Humphrey and Maurice Canady ready to step in. It’s not officially Humphrey’s first start, but it may as well be as he’s expected to play the entire game and get a stiff test from the league’s leading receiver, Antonio Brown.

Baltimore’s Run Stopping Power
While the Ravens won’t have Smith, they will line up with defensive tackle Brandon Williams. Williams was out with a foot injury in the first matchup and Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell took advantage with 144 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Williams will make a big difference, but Bell got much of his yardage last time on the edges. The Ravens need to force Bell to dance in the bac Toronto Blue Jays kfield and form a wall in front of him.

Matchups to Watch

CB Marlon Humphrey vs. WR Antonio Brown
All eyes will be on the rookie in his biggest test yet. Humphrey has stood tall in the face of every challenge thus far, but Brown is more than just a challenge. Brown leads the league with 1,296 receiving yards and has put up 28 catches for 414 yards and six touchdowns over the past three games. Humphrey knows he’s going to be tested early and often. Humphrey has the speed to keep up with Brown, but not nearly the experience and Blue Jays Custom Jersey  tricks of the trade.

OLB Terrell Suggs vs. QB Ben Roethlisberger
Many of the faces that have defined the Ravens-Steelers rivalry have retired, leaving Suggs and Big Ben as the last standing vestiges of those times. Suggs said there’s no quarterback in the league he enjoys sacking more than Roethlisberger, and this week added that he’ll forever be considered his biggest foe. Suggs lives for this game, yet Blue Jays Jersey For Sale  he hasn’t sacked Roethlisberger since Oct. 20, 2013. Suggs will be looking to change that, and he’s been red hot lately with six sacks in his last four games and 10.5 on the year.

WR Mike Wallace vs. S Mike Mitchell
Wallace has played well against his former team as a member of the Ravens. He scored a 95-yard touchdown in their first meeting last year when he toasted Mitchell, who took a poor angle. Wallace also scored a touchdown, this time from 16 yards out, in the teams’ meeting earlier this year. Wallace was a big part of the offensive breakout last week, hauling in five catches for 116 yards. If he can burn his former mates deep, it will open everything up for Baltimore.

 

Ravens Open Team Meeting With Prayer for Roberto Osuna Jersey

The Steelers linebacker injured his back in Monday’s game against the Bengals and remains in a Cincinnati hospital as doctors monitor a ‘spinal concussion.’

 Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 55 Russell Martin Toronto Blue Jays Canada Day Red Jersey
When the Ravens gathered Wednesday morning as they Toronto Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey  continue preparing for Sunday night’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, they opened their team meeting by praying for one of the Steelers, injured linebacker Ryan Shazier.

“Our thoughts are with him. Our prayers are with him,” Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh told the media.

In a frightening incident on national television, Shazier was injured wh Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 54 Roberto Osuna Toronto Blue Jays Home White Baseball Jersey ile making a tackle early in the Steelers’ game against the Cincinnati Bengals Monday night. After his head collided with a Cincinnati receiver’s thigh, he fell to the ground and was placed on a backboard, carted off the field and transferred to a hospital amid concerns that he’d suffered major neurological damage.

“You just pray for a person like that. You never want to see that happen to anybody. It doesn’t matter what team he’s on,” Ravens receiver Mike Wallace said. “We’re one family, the NFL family, at t Toronto Blue Jays he end of the day. That’s a person who’s a son, a dad, whatever he is to somebody. People like him and care about him so you never want to see anything like that happen to anybody.”

Shazier, 25, is a fourth-year player from Blue Jays Jersey For Sale  Ohio State who made the Pro Bowl in 2016. He leads the Steelers in tackles by a wide margin this year.

His teammates returned to Pittsburgh after the Steelers rallied to beat the Bengals Monday night, but Shazier remains hospitalized in Cincinnati with what doctors have initially called a spinal concussion, with some swelling involved.

On Tuesday, Shazier tweeted his thanks for the outpouring of support he has received, but offered no update on his condition.

“It’s scary. I feel for him and his family and Vladimir Guerrero JR Jersey teammates,” Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco said. “At the same time, I always say it, this is a different sport. Every time we go out there on the field, you take a lot of risk. You understand what the consequences are for playing this game.

“But man, I feel for his teammates and his family. I can’t imagine what they’re going through.”

Harbaugh said the Ravens collectively prayed for Shazier’s health and well-be Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 54 Roberto Osuna Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Jersey ing Wednesday morning.

“Great respect for him and for the players that play in this league,” Harbaugh said.

Several Ravens player Russell Martin Jersey s expressed concern and support for Shazier, including linebackers C.J. Mosley and Terrell Suggs. Mosley, who entered the NFL in the same draft class as Shazier and has trained with him in the offseason, texted Pittsburgh’s linebacker Tuesday to check on him.

The Ravens and Steelers are among the NFL’s fiercest rivals. They’ll meet for the second time this season Sunday night in Pittsburgh.

“We said a prayer for him and he plays for the Steelers, so you know it’s bigger than football,” Wallace said. “It’s about a person, his self, just hoping he has his health and is able to walk and play again ultimately, but first and foremost, we want him to be healthy.”

Baltimore also brought defensive tackle Kapron Lewis-Moore and center Derrick Nelson to the practice squad. Rainey was last with the Ravens during training camp and the preseason.

The Ravens re-signed Bobby Rainey to fill their need at running back following Terrance West’s calf injury.

A sixth-round pick of the Ravens in 2013, Lewis-Moore spent four seasons in Baltimore but saw action in just five games because of inju Joe Carter Jersey ry. He spent most of his time on the practice squad, and was a well-liked player in the locker room.
