Scouting report Ravens rushing vs. Bengals run defense -- EVEN The Ravens can gauge where their running game stands better against the Bengals. In the season opener vs. the Bears, the Ravens' offensive line couldn't move an impressive Chicago front, and RB Terry Allen couldn't break tackles, managing just 1.9 yards a carry. Cincinnati DTs Oliver Gibson and Tony Williams, both of whom lack the girth of Chicago in the middle, held the makeshift Patriots to 68 yards rushing. The keys for the Ravens are cutting off the pursuit of OLB Takeo Spikes as well as finishing their blocks.

Elevated by 40-yard speed, raw passing game numbers and sometimes reputation, the position of wide receiver is a favorite target in the first round of the NFL's college draft. But recent history has shown it's more quagmire than haven at the top of the draft, more risk than reward. Eight of the past 13 wide receivers taken in the top 10 picks either have been outright busts, have run afoul of the league's substance-abuse policy, or simply have under-performed when they had the chance.

Ravens quarterback Anthony Wright had a quick answer as to why his team was penalized only twice in Sunday's 31-13 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. "Its just discipline," Wright said. "We are playing a lot better and with more confidence. That's the biggest thing." The Ravens have been flagged only six times in the past two games, their lowest back-to-back total of the season. Before that, the Ravens had reached double-digit penalties in the three previous games. When the Ravens are penalized less than their opponents, they are 3-0 this season.

The drought of receivers from the University of Florida who make it big in the NFL appears to be over. Unfortunately for the Ravens, the most prominent ex-Gators wide-out today isn't Travis Taylor, but his 1999 sidekick, Darrell Jackson. The headliners in the class of 2000 receivers were Peter Warrick (fourth pick), Plaxico Burress (eighth pick) and Taylor (10th pick). But Jackson, a third-round pick - No. 80 overall - by the Seattle Seahawks, has outdistanced them all so far. Through two seasons and two weeks, Jackson has 136 catches for 1,975 yards and 14 touchdowns.

NEW ORLEANS -- When Shane Beamer is asked about the attention Virginia Tech pays to its special teams, one image stands out. It is of his father, Hokies head coach Frank Beamer, sitting in his office watching tape of punt and kickoff coverage, not to mention field goals, until his eyes blur. "We spend a lot of time on special teams, but Dad spends a ridiculous amount of time on it," the younger Beamer, a fifth-year senior and the team's long snapper, said yesterday. It is why the Hokies blocked more kicks this decade -- 59 -- than any Division I-A team in the country.

Finding blue-chip players in the annual NFL college draft this weekend will be like picking stocks in a bear market. In contrast to last year, when three quarterbacks (Tim Couch, Donovan McNabb and Akili Smith) and two running backs (Edgerrin James and Ricky Williams) were the first five picks, there may be only one quarterback (Chad Pennington) drafted on the first round and none of the running backs are considered franchise-type players. Only four players -- Penn State defensive standouts Courtney Brown and LaVar Arrington, Alabama offensive tackle Chris Samuels and Florida State wide receiver Peter Warrick -- are considered consensus can't-miss players.

When the NFL draft finally began yesterday, the posturing -- and the trading -- finally stopped. All those rumored draft-day deals? Vanished with the pre-draft rhetoric. The team that tried the hardest -- and had the most ammunition -- failed to get an elite pick. In the last two days, the New York Jets made runs at the Cincinnati Bengals, Ravens, Philadelphia Eagles, Arizona Cardinals and Pittsburgh Steelers, teams that held picks 4 through 8. Rebuffed, the Jets filled their needs as best they could.

The Jon Kitna-led Cincinnati Bengals had done plenty right in winning six of their previous seven games, including a four-game winning streak before yesterday's 31-13 loss at M&T Bank Stadium. Kitna had completed 60 percent of his passes for 1,647 yards and 16 touchdowns during that time and entered the game having totaled 2,811 yards and 22 touchdowns. Kitna's 19-4 touchdowns-to-interceptions ratio in his previous nine games led a Bengals squad that ranked 10th in NFL passing and 12th in rushing.

The Ravens reduced their holdout list by two yesterday, but dug in for what might be a lengthy wait on first-round pick Travis Taylor and disgruntled defensive tackle Tony Siragusa. The agents for Taylor, David Canter and Steve Weinberg, scrambled last evening to propose a four-year deal after abandoning efforts to negotiate a seven-year contract. The agent for Siragusa, meanwhile, suggested the 10-year veteran likely would ask for his release rather than play for the $1.5 million final year of his contract.
