For Ravens center Jeremy Zuttah, it was a strange feeling to return to Tampa for the first time since being traded to the Ravens in March in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick in 2015. Zuttah had played and started for the Buccaneers for six years before the offseason transaction. “There was a time when I was bitter,” said Zuttah, who was signed to a five-year, $18 million contract extension after the trade. “Once I got to Baltimore, that was out the window. I'm just happy to be a part of this organization.” On Sunday, Zuttah had to adjust to lining up on the opponents' sideline and getting dressed in the visitors' locker room.

Setting the scene: The Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers came out under clear, sticky skies at noon for a full-pads practice at the Under Armour Performance Center. The teams came in around 2:30 p.m. I've seen enough: The Ravens' first-team offense, and particularly the passing game, was bad Sunday. One particularly poor stretch was a three-play sequence when quarterback Joe Flacco had a pass dropped, then one intercepted, then another dropped in the end zone. Wide receiver Jacoby Jones dropped a ball right on his hands on a quick slant, then on the following play, 49ers cornerback Dontae Johnson jumped a route for a pick-six.

When the Ravens came within striking distance of picking a viable offensive tackle during the NFL draft, the options disappeared. Demand for quality offensive tackles quickly outweighed the supply Thursday as four were taken ahead of the Ravens' selection in the first round, including Notre Dame's Zack Martin by the Dallas Cowboys one pick before the Ravens drafted inside linebacker C.J. Mosley. The Cowboys won a coin flip over the Ravens at the NFL scouting combine in February for the 16th overall pick.

The Ravens' top decision makers are always preaching about the importance of roster competition. They want it at every position, not just for starting roles but for special teams units and back-end roster spots. Heading into training camp which officially begins with the first full-squad practice on July 24, the Ravens' front office has assembled a 90-man roster that will need to be whittled down to 53 in the coming weeks. The roster has a mixture of youth and experience and is particularly deep at wide receiver where 12 guys are competing for five or six spots.

It is pure folly trying to predict exactly what Ozzie Newsome and the Ravens braintrust will do in the draft, and that remained true while they were mocking the mock drafts for the past three days. They certainly had me fooled, since I was convinced that they would use their early picks to further upgrade Gary Kubiak's offense. Instead, they used their first pick to reel in Alabama inside linebacker C.J. Mosley, took Florida State defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan in the second round and added Florida State free safety Terrence Brooks with their third overall pick.

The Ravens wrapped up the three-day NFL draft with nine players (four on defense, five on offense). Members of The Baltimore Sun's staff take a moment to grade the draft overall for the Ravens as they prepare for the upcoming season. Jeff Zrebiec, reporter Grade: C+ I was reminded of the risk of immediately grading draft picks when baltimoresun.com put up PDF files of past post-draft editions and the 2002 version was decidely lukewarm on the Ed Reed selection . You just never know.

Draft fatigue? What draft fatigue? After months of preparation, the draft analysts have shifted their focus from projecting who teams would draft (with limited success) to grading the players the teams actually did select. These are typically exercises in reputation worship and common sense work: if you have a history of drafting well, you probably drafted well again this year. And if you had a ton of picks, you probably picked a lot of players who could be good, because you picked a lot of players.

The Ravens have never denied that they liked and had interest in drafting former Towson star running back Terrance West . But they are contesting West's characterization of what transpired during Day 2 of the draft. West told Cleveland reporters over the weekend that the Ravens texted his agent and relayed to him that they were planning on drafting the local standout with the 99th overall pick in the third round. As it turned out, the Browns made a trade with the San Francisco 49ers to get the 94th pick, which they used to select West.

Keith Wenning exhibited nice touch in hitting wide receiver Jeremy Butler down the right sideline. Several plays later, Wenning found tight end Crockett Gillmore in the middle of the field, one of several catches on the day for the third-round selection. The Ball State quarterback, who was taken in the sixth round of last week's draft, showed plenty of accuracy and arm strength on the second official day of the Ravens' rookie minicamp. But it's everything leading up to the 6-foot-3 quarterback bringing back his right arm and letting the ball go that has been the biggest challenge for Wenning this week.
