Miles Boykin Jersey

Miles Boykin: “I didn’t see it until after the draft, but that to me just makes this place that much more special. That means there was 499 people who went through the same thing I went through you know the rigorous class load, and obviously the schedule that we go through in just playing at an elite level and going to school at an elite level that shows that this place is truly special.”

Jack Nolan: “Now where were you when you got the phone call from the Ravens and what was that moment like both for you, your family, and your friends?”

Miles Boykin: “Yeah, so I was watching with my mom, my dad, my brother, my grandparents and we were just sitting there just watching the draft and it was funny because the TV was kind of a little bit late, so it was really three picks ahead of when they were actually picking because Baltimore traded to get me. They traded to move up to get me.”

Miles Boykin: “So, when they called me, I didn’t know who was calling my phone. I didn’t know what team was getting ready to draft me but then, when they told me, it was awesome. My mom started crying.”

Miles Boykin: “I couldn’t really hear what they were saying at first because everybody was yelling. But, yeah, it was a moment I’ll never forget.”

Jack Nolan: “You lead a very talented Notre Dame team last season, 872 receiving yards, 8 touchdowns. Let’s talk about these past few months since the Cotton Bowl. What was the piece of information or the pieces of information that you received that convinced you that you should go into the draft this year?”

Miles Boykin: “Well yeah, just talking with my family. The biggest thing is that they wanted what was best for me. I’m graduating in May. Talking to my coaching staff and just getting feedback from people that I trust, that you know the biggest thing for me was that I have my degree so there’s no way I could make a wrong decision.”

Miles Boykin: “It really just came down to you know what I wanted in football and how I picture myself in the league, and you know I think things worked out great for me. You know being selected in the third round, you know I was a top 100 player in the country this year, so for me it’s all about what was best for me and my family and now moving forward and how can I continue my football career.”

Jaylon Ferguson Jersey

2019 Marquise Brown Baltimore Ravens Jerseys up to 70% off.We offer Marquise Brown home, away and alternate jerseys with high quality.
When Jaylon Ferguson’s name gets called at the 2019 NFL Draft, there’s a chance the former Louisiana Tech defensive end won’t have a clue he’s been drafted into the league. The rest of the NFL community might know when and where Ferguson is drafted before he himself finds out.

As Ferguson’s agent Safarrah Lawson told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Thursday, Ferguson is without cell-phone service at the moment because he’s in Ruston, Louisiana helping those who have been affected by a tornado that has resulted in two confirmed deaths in Ruston. Louisiana Tech announced that it was closing on Thursday due to a “significant amount of damage” that occurred Wednesday night, including downed power lines and trees.

According to Schefter, Ferguson is searching for missing people and delivering water to those in need.

“Instead of having a draft party and celebrating a lifelong dream, he’s out helping other people,” Lawson said, via ESPN. “It speaks to this young man’s character.”

Lawson said Ferguson is OK and that his home isn’t lacking power.

“Hopefully his cell service will be restored soon so he can find out where he’s drafted,” Lawson said.

Entering the first round on Thursday night, Ferguson is expected to be selected at some point in the second round on Friday after a successful four-year career at Louisiana Tech that saw him rack up 45 sacks (an NCAA record) and 67.5 tackles for a loss. Given how unpredictable the draft always is, there’s a chance Ferguson could get selected late in the first round.

Ferguson, though, has had his character questioned throughout the draft process. Most notably, he was disinvited from the combine due to a simple battery conviction stemming from a fight at a McDonald’s that happened during his freshman year of college. He was also charged with public intoxication during his time at Louisiana Tech. Ferguson was eventually allowed to take part in medical tests and to speak with teams at the combine, but he was not permitted to participate in any on-the-field drills.

“I explained that was at a different point in my life. I was 18, and I’m not really a bad guy,” Ferguson told The Associated Press at the time. “As I explained the story, I think a lot of people understood.”

In Ryan Wilson’s recent seven-round mock draft, he has Ferguson going to the Eagles in the second round with the 57th overall pick.

Marquise Brown Jersey

Antonio Brown is one of the faces of the Oakland Raiders and tried to make his presence felt for the franchise during the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft. During the draft, Brown made it clear that he wanted his new team to go out and draft his cousin, Oklahoma wide receiver Marquise Brown.

Obviously, that didn’t end up happening. Oakland took Alabama running back Josh Jacobs and the Baltimore Ravens ended up selecting Brown’s cousin, Marquise.

Oakland very well knew what Brown was wanting. He went ahead and took to Twitter to share his thoughts that the Raiders should take his playmaking cousin.

If the two Brown’s had been able to play together, it would have been a nightmare for opposing defenses to defend against. Both players possess top-notch speed and playmaking ability and would be tough covers for any cornerback. Very few teams have good enough corners to cover two players with the kind of skill-set that Antonio and Marquise have.

As it stands, Antonio will have to settle for watching his cousin terrorize his former team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, twice each season. Baltimore needed playmaking badly and Marquise is going to be a massive addition for their offense.

Lamar Jackson and Marquise Brown are going to be a deadly duo for a long time. Derek Carr and Antonio Brown are going to look to turn the Raiders around and get them back into playoff contention.

No matter what ends up happening, thinking about “what if” the two Brown’s had teamed up will still be interesting.

Brandon Williams Jersey

No, the Buffalo Bills did not make a bold move up the NFL draft board Thursday night.

That possibility had social media buzzing after it was speculated before the start of the draft that the team might have a potential deal in place with the AFC East rival New York Jets for the third overall pick, with the expected target being Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams.

Instead, the Jets took Williams, and the Bills stuck with the ninth overall selection, eventually using it on Houston defensive tackle Ed Oliver. General Manager Brandon Beane, who’s never been shy about making a deal, addressed the possibility.

“Yeah, as we always do, there was a lot of exploring in front of us, some of it you’re also trying to figure out what people are going to do,” he said. “That report was played up much higher than it was. There was never any exchange of compensation or anything like that. That’s when, to me, you’re getting serious on a trade if you start talking parameters of what it’s going to take to move up and move back.”

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan told New York reporters, “There was never a deal we felt good moving back from. We’re very happy with the player that was available.”

Beane said he also felt comfortable staying at nine and not deeply exploring trade-down options.

“I realized really this week that nine was going to be a very valuable spot,” he said. “Denver could have potentially been in the market for a quarterback, I think right after we picked Pittsburgh traded up. There was a lot of action either way that you could’ve done, but we were set that if there was a guy there that we felt worthy of the pick, that we were going to take that and not chance losing him.”

Brent Urban Jersey

The New York Jets have signed Ty Montgomery to a one-year deal, making him Le’Veon Bell’s primary backup.

Midway through last season, the Ravens traded the Green Bay Packers a reported seventh-round pick in the 2020 draft in exchange for Montgomery. Baltimore was looking for a pass-catching tailback to help Joe Flacco and the offense.

Montgomery and Flacco never got to play together, however, because Flacco suffered a hip injury against the Steelers just days after the trade, when Montgomery was inactive for his first game in Baltimore.

In a Lamar Jackson-led offense, and with the emergence of Gus Edwards and then Kenneth Dixon, Montgomery had a limited role. In six games played, he had just 15 carries for 83 yards and 10 catches for 65 yards.

It remains to be seen whether Montgomery’s deal would be big enough to register in the compensatory pick formula. The Ravens are currently projected to get a third-round pick in the 2020 draft, and unrestricted free agents signing elsewhere could add more picks.

Baltimore’s other remaining unrestricted free agents are defensive end Brent Urban, tight end Maxx Williams and running back Javorius Allen.

Nick Boyle Jersey

According to ESPN NFL Insider Field Yates, the Baltimore Ravens have exercised tackle Ronnie Stanley’s 5th-year option.

Stanley was set to enter the final year of his rookie contract this season but is locked up through the 2020 season. He will make roughly 13 million next season.

I wrote about this yesterday, but this was a no-brainer move for the Ravens ahead of the May 3 deadline. Stanley posted the 3rd highest pass-blocking grade among offensive tackles in 2018, per Pro Football Focus and solidified the left edge of the offensive line for Joe Flacco and Lamar Jackson.

Stanley is a candidate to receive a long-term extension in the near future. General Manager Eric DeCosta spoke about taking care of the organization’s young players, as evident with new deals for cornerback Tavon Young and tight end Nick Boyle. Locking up one of the league’s brightest young tackles will surely be atop of the priority list.

It’s vitally important to have stability on the offensive line with a young quarterback. As Lamar Jackson enters his second season, he has Stanley and Orlando Brown Jr. on the edge and one of the league’s best guards in Marshal Yanda protecting the inside.

Alex Lewis Jersey

AZUSA, California – Montana State track and field had several student-athletes put together standout performances, including a school record broken, in the Bobcats’ showing in two meets in California on Friday, April 19.

MSU’s highlight of the day came at the Bryan Clay Invitational at Azusa Pacific’s Cougar Stadium.

Senior Alex Lewis continued his stellar final campaign as a Bobcat in the long jump Friday. The Moscow, Idaho, native set a new lifetime best and broke the program record in the event on his third attempt. Lewis crossed over 25 feet for the first time in his collegiate career which broke the school-record mark of 24-11 set by Marty Ogg in 1979. It was the program’s longest standing outdoor record.

Lewis eventually topped his third-attempt mark. On his sixth and final attempt, Lewis reached a wind-legal distance of 25-02 (7.67m). That mark placed him second in the event and currently places him 11th in the West Region rankings.

Truanne Roginske also moved into MSU’s all-time top 10 list in the women’s long jump. She reached a lifetime-best mark of 18-10 (5.74m) on her second attempt as she took 21st overall. That put her into seventh on the Bobcats’ all-time chart in the event.

Three other Bobcats also competed at the Bryan Clay Invite and completed lifetime bests. Morgan Evans led a trio of MSU runners in the 100-meter dash. Evans took 56th in the event with a time of 12.27 seconds. Ramsay finished 72nd in 12.36 seconds and Haile Norred placed 88th in 12.51 seconds.

Multiple runners have had solid efforts at the Mt. SAC Relays in Torrance over the course of two days. On Friday, two Bobcats joined the Bobcats’ top 10 all-time lists.

Freshmen Camila Noe and Duncan Hamilton made their marks on the Bobcats’ record book. Noe took 30th overall in the 5,000 invitational race in a time of 16:32.82. Noe, who finished 13th among collegiate runners in the race, moved from 10th to third all-time among Bobcats in the event. Hamilton finished 10th overall in the men’s 3,000 steeplechase invitational race. His time of 9:01.36 is the 10th best in program history in the event.

Anna French and Trisha Carlson both ran in the women’s 3,000 steeplechase invitational race. French took 10th overall, and sixth among college athletes, by crossing the line in 10:25.96. Carlson finished 20th with a mark of 10:47.10.

Kelsi Lasota and Collin Buck competed in the Mt. SAC Relays on Thursday evening. Lasota participated in the women’s 10,000 invitational race and took 11th in a time of 33:55.58. She was the fourth fastest college runner in the event. Buck ran in the men’s 10,000 ‘A’ race and completed a time of 31:15.83. He placed 18th in the event.

The Montana State track and field student-athletes competing in California are slated to participate in the Beach Invitational on Long Beach State’s campus Saturday.

James Hurst Jersey

The Baltimore Ravens need to beef up the interior of their offensive line this offseason. Ever since Baltimore let Kelechi Osemele walk in free agency during the 2015 offseason, the left guard position has been a revolving door, especially between Alex Lewis and James Hurst.

With a push to a more run-heavy offensive scheme last year, upgrading at left guard immediately should be a priority for the Ravens. Even though Baltimore signed right guard Marshal Yanda to a one-year contract extension this offseason, they need to really begin searching for his heir now too.
Lindstrom is developed in the mold the Ravens typically like. He’s a player who can play multiple positions — tackle, guard and center. That’s a rare combination in today’s NFL.

Lindstrom is a smart player. He can recognize blitzes and stunts from opposing defenses fairly well, which is partly why he would be intriguing as a center too. Lindstrom’s also an incredibly athletic offensive lineman, allowing him to pull and block well on the move.

That athleticism means he’s not quite as strong as teams might like him to be. But he makes that up with solid technique and quickness to beat the defender to the punch. That flaw is just enough to push him down to the Ravens’ No. 22 pick.

Patrick Onwuasor Jersey

Ravens linebacker Patrick Onwuasor won’t look over and see C.J. Mosley next to him anymore. He won’t hear Terrell Suggs’ booming voice from the edge, nor safety Eric Weddle right behind him, directing traffic before furiously backpedaling to give the opposing quarterback a different look.

All those leaders of the Ravens’ top-rated defense of 2018 are gone, and Onwuasor, armed with a nice, bigger paycheck, knows it’s up to him to step into the massive leadership void left behind. And just in case he wasn’t sure about that, others have let him know.

“One thing I have to start learning how to build is leadership,” Onwuasor said as he met with the media April 16 as team’s offseason program began.

Onwuasor noted that veteran safety Earl Thomas, the Ravens’ top offseason acquisition, told him, “‘We’re going to work on your leadership.’ And that’s something that I kind of shy away from, too,” Onuwuasor said. “I’m kind of soft-spoken. I like staying away a bit. I think if I start working on my leadership, it would probably be great for us.”

Onwuasor, who turns 27 in August, has followed a path familiar to the Ravens: an inside linebacker who made the roster as an undrafted rookie, then worked his way into an increasingly larger role before becoming a regular starter. It happened with Bart Scott, and Jameel McClain, and Dannell Ellerbe, and Zach Orr as well.

Onwuasor started 12 of 16 games at weak-side linebacker this past season, finishing with 59 tackles, 5.5 sacks and one interception. He forced two fumbles on strip-sacks, with both of them returned for touchdowns by cornerback Tavon Young.

Now with Mosley gone as a free agent to the New York Jets, Onwuasor becomes the clear leader of an inside linebacker group that is one of the thinnest areas on the team. The only other returnees from last year’s 53-man roster are second-year players Kenny Young and Chris Board.

The Ravens could target an inside linebacker early in the draft, and they could look to sign a veteran later in the summer, as they did with Daryl Smith in 2013 after Ray Lewis retired, but it will be up to Onwuasor to take command of the inside linebacker group.

It’s also likely that Onwuasor will wear the defensive headset helmet, communicating calls from defensive coordinator Don “Wink” Martindale to the rest of the defense.

“I’m really comfortable wearing the headset,” Onwuasor said. “I wore it in practice. Just listening to ‘Wink’ relay the calls … C.J. wasn’t the only one talking. You have 11 guys on the field. Eleven guys are talking. When that play comes in, we’re all communicating.”

A restricted free agent this spring, Onwuasor signed a second-round tender worth roughly $3 million, nearly quintupling his salary from last season. He is set to become a free agent next year, but he wasn’t ready to look too far ahead on the business front.

“I’m just focused on this year, and I’m going to let that play out how it plays out,” he said.

Onwuasor acknowledged that the extent of the free agency losses that hit the Ravens’ defense took him somewhat by surprise, as Mosley (Jets), Suggs (Arizona Cardinals), Weddle (Los Angeles Rams) and linebacker Za’Darius Smith (Green Bay Packers) all signed elsewhere.

“To be honest, I didn’t really think it was going to change that much,” Onwuasor said.

“It’s a business at the end of the day,” he added, “so it’s a lot of moving pieces. I think the Ravens did a great job to try to fill in those pieces and bring people here to help us progress.”

Tavon Young Jersey

The Ravens have made improving the secondary a priority in recent seasons, particularly at the cornerback position. They used a fourth-round pick and first-round pick to select Tavon Young and Marlon Humphrey in back-to-back drafts, and also signed Brandon Carr in free agency ahead of the 2017 season.

Baltimore’s investments at the position have paid off, as their cornerback group is arguably the now deepest, most-talented in the league. The fact that Jimmy Smith is now the third, maybe even the fourth best corner on the team speaks to the depth the Ravens have. This is no way a slight towards smith, either, but a testament to the skill level of Marlon Humphrey, Brandon Carr, and Tavon Young.

If you move further down the depth chart, the Ravens have the likes of Anthony Averett, Maurice Canady, and Stanley Jean-Baptiste, three talented young guys who have flashed upside and possess untapped potential. With Terrell Suggs and Za’Darius Smith no longer setting the edge, the Ravens pass rush figures to take at least a small step back next season. If the pass rush is less effective, the play of Baltimore’s cornerbacks becomes even more crucial to the success of the defense.

Barring any unforeseen injuries or developments prior to the season, the Ravens will return the same group of guys from last season. Check out these bold predictions below and be sure to leave your thoughts in the comment section!
Marlon Humphrey has performed a very high level since entering the league two years ago. However, even after taking a step forward in his development last season and performing as the 11th-best cornerback in the league, it still feels as though he doesn’t receive the national recognition that he deserves. I believe this is the year that changes. The heading above may seem a bit confusing, so allow me to explain. Humphrey recently announced that his new jersey number is 44, which is the number his father wore during his playing years. If you add four and four together, you get eight – the number of interceptions I envision Humphrey recording next year.

Only four players have accomplished this feat since the 2015 season: Reggie Nelson, Marcus Peters, Darius Slay, and Kevin Byard. The last Ravens player to post eight interceptions was Ed Reed in 2010. Eric Weddle came the closest to matching this benchmark two seasons ago when he recorded six. Humphrey has just four career interceptions in two seasons, so expecting that number to suddenly jump to eight seems a bit far-fetched. However, these are bold predictions for a reason. Humphrey has great ball skills and possesses the athleticism to hold his own against almost any receiver in the league. Humphrey has been rock-solid for two straight seasons, but this third year is when he’ll truly ascend to elite status at the position.
