Always known Daryl Smith as being quality because he has always been good on the Madden games ha!

Anybody recon they know our starting linebackers?

Suggs, Smith, Brown, Upshaw?

Being a more inexperienced member, where does this mean that dumervil is likely to fit? will he play DE? Who will the front 3 be for us?

I think, all being healthy (which for McLain is a serious question), then as it stands the starting 4 would be Suggs, McClain, Smith, Dumervil. I think they will bring Brown along slowly.

Having said all this I can see there being a lot of situational rotation, to the extent that it will be difficult to really nail down 'starters', which means Brown, Upshaw and maybe even Simon and McPhee, who seems to be playing a bit of backer in TC, will get a lot of snaps.

Front 3 will be Ngata, Canty and Spears I think. Which will be one huge front! Really looking forward to our D this season, especially after last year's disappointing unit. I think we'll be reliaing on it more than planned in the absence of Boldin and Pitta now.

From what I've read Art Jones is having a fantastic camp and is listed as one of the 3 starters up front

I agree I think Jones will be a "starter", seems to improve year on year but looks to really be motoring on this year which can only be a good thing.

Agree with Mikeyshaps though that it's really hard to identify starters with this team particularly with the number of looks we're going to show, we've got imo a fantastic D-line rotation with Ngata, Jones, Spears, Canty, Mcphee, Williams etc not to mention cracking OLB's in Suggs, Doom and Upshaw. Everyone's going to get plenty of snaps and get lined up all over the shop which should be great in keeping the guys fresh, healthy and the opposing offences guessing. I expect to see some very odd looks this year with a potential front of Suggs, Ngata, Upshaw and Doom on some passing situations, a scary prospect imo.

Definately excited about the D (and that's before you even add the likes of Elam who Im quickly falling in love with and a healthy Webb), just hope it turns out to be as good as it looks to me right now...

I'll be honest, I completely forgot about Jones!

Thoughts on the possible signing of Brandon Stockely?

Always been a good possession guy and did well in Denver. Not sure how much he has left at this point but always good to have a vet around with so many young receivers.

Just catching up on pre season (Been on my summer holidays) here's some of my ramblings.

I really think we might have missed on Jimmy Smith, He seems to get beaten whoever is lined up opposite him. Hope I'm wrong!

We are so desperate for a WR it's blatantly obvious Flacco is missing Q and obviously now Pitta. Think Ozzie may have to pull some trade magic if we are going to compete.

Nice to see Asa Jackson coming to life a bit after his troubled start to the NFL. I've always been a fan.

Can't think of a player that suits the Ravens ethos better than Elam. I already love the guy!

Our front 7 rotation will be nasty once it gets more time. I'm still confident in that.

Bernard Pearce never ceases to amaze me. He's turning into a stud.

I definitely get the "Rebuild" feeling about our team. I was hoping it was going to be more "Reload"

Not been keeping as up to date with things as I should have, but from what i've seen so far defensively we look strong, not so sure about the offense, but I guess that's down to the young receiving corps.

This season I feel is more about building again, can we defend the super bowl, probably not, personally i'd like to see us at least make the Divisional round of the playoffs.
