    Deonte Thompson



    I haven't been on the board as much as usual, and wanted to get an update on this Undrafted Free Agent Wide Receiver. How did he do at mini-camp?

    He did great at mini-camp. Opened some eyes with speed. Many posters have pointed out that past wrs starred in mini-camps and against lower competition in preseason games and fizzled when the real games started. With his speed he is certainly one to watch when camp opens.

    Re: Deonte Thompson

    He killed it.

    Really made a case for himself to make the 53.

    However, it was in shorts & tees...so, it'll be interesting to see how he does in pads.

    Question for you Ravens fans : Is it possible that two UDFAs [LaQuan Williams (2011) and Deonte Thompson (2012)] can force out a 4th round draft choice (who was named by Flacco before the 2011 draft)? That is Tandon Doss... Bc

    It's possible, but unlikely IMO.

    However, they could force out Tommy Streeter.

    Yes. Jason Phillips and Davon Drew were pushed out. You don't hand anything to a 4th round pick in year 2. Doss has to earn his spot or he won't be around.

    seeing some florida people calling him 'stone hands' since this news broke out about him in minis. sounds like a good fit! anyway, i'd rather them hang on to streeter because at least he fills a size need.

    I do not believe that is so. While I don't want to throw Doss under the bus, he does have to show the Ravens that he has what it takes to make the 53. So far, IMHO, he hasn't. Streeter (again IMHO) has the possibility to be a 'stretch-the-field' WR... Bc

    Agreed.

    What I mean to say was that it wouldn't surprise me if Streeter somehow suffered a "season ending thumb injury" and was IR'ed while LaQuan, Doss, & Thompson all made the final roster.

    That is probably a good guess. I am guessing that if Doss does show some potential they are going to want to hold onto him until next year. Smith, Thompson and Streeter are speed guys. Chances are this is Boldin's last year unless he has a great year or restructures his contract.

    Thompson has done some good things as a return specialist as well during minicamp and OTA's. Considering that Asa Jackson is also fairly well versed as a return specialist I think that David Reed could likely be given an injury settlement and waived.

    That allows them to keep both Streeter and Thompson (assuming Streeter was making the team anyway).

    Could be Baltimore's next Victor Cruz?

    Similar body types & speed.

    Yeah they are very similar is size and speed, both undrafted could make some noise in the pre season as Cruz did back in 2010. It's obviously a long shot at this point, but stranger things have happened. We have to use him correctly first though.

    Victor Cruz was great in the preseason starting with his rookie year. He caught 3 touchdowns in 1 game! If he's going to be the next Cruz he's going to have to put up numbers like Cruz did.
