Based on measurements alone, there was a lot to like about Tommy Streeter when the Ravens drafted him in the sixth round of the 2012 draft. He ran one of the fastest times in the 40-yard dash at the scouting combine that year, and his 4.4 speed coupled with his 6-foot-5 frame and long arms made him an intriguing prospect. But when he got onto the practice field during last year's training camp, Streeter played much slower than his timed speed in spandex would indicate. Occasionally, he would use his long strides to sneak behind the defense that summer and he built a little buzz with a 33-yard touchdown catch in the third preseason game.

Despite the uncertainty over who will be their third wide receiver this season, the Ravens waited until the final couple hours of the 2012 NFL draft weekend to address the wide receiver position. Late in the sixth round, the Ravens drafted Miami wide receiver Tommy Streeter. He was the 27th receiver drafted this year, but based on pre-draft rankings from several draft publications and websites, the Ravens got good value with the selection. Sports Illustrated and Athlon Sports both projected Streeter as a third-round pick.

Asa Jackson still has a long way to go to redeem himself after his second suspension in as many seasons, but the second-year cornerback took a few dozen steps in the right direction late in Thursday night's preseason win. With the Ravens trailing by three points in the fourth quarter, Jackson lined up in his territory to return a punt. Atlanta punter Matt Bosher boomed a punt 51 yards to Jackson, who caught it as his 22-yard line. Bosher had outkicked his coverage and the vises the Ravens set up on both sidelines to neutralize the gunners got the job done.

Tommy Streeter will never forget the pain he felt the weekend of the NFL draft. Projected by some analysts to be a second-day pick, Streeter remained on the board until late in the sixth round. But shortly after the Ravens ended his disappointment, his phone rang. Linebacker Ray Lewis was reaching out to the Miami Hurricanes wide receiver and welcoming him to the family. “I basically told him that I was ready to make that next step, ready to train,” Streeter said Sunday, the final day of the team's three-day rookie minicamp in Owings Mills.

Unlike Saturday's practice, which was punctuated by the return of tight ends Ed Dickson and Dennis Pitta, Monday's session did not provide similar storylines. There were no players who ended a recent absence to return to the practice field at the team's headquarters in Owings Mills. And on the flipside, there were no new players added to the list of players absent from previous sessions. Starting right guard Marshal Yanda missed his third consecutive practice with a strained right knee.

Second-year defensive end Pernell McPhee, who has been sidelined since organized team activities with a knee injury, returned to the practice field on Wednesday, his first full-participation practice of Ravens training camp. McPhee will compete with third-year player Arthur Jones to replace the departed Cory Redding at defensive end. Returning to practice after sitting out Tuesday were defensive tackle Ma'ake Kemoeatu and wide receiver Tommy Streeter. Newly-signed tight end Billy Bajema, who was with the St. Louis Rams last season, is also at practice.

John Harbaugh is well-renowned for keeping his cards close to the vest. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that the Ravens coach was coy about revealing his plan for the team's preseason opener against the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night.   “The game plan for Atlanta, we don't have one,” he said after Friday's practice at the team's training complex in Owings Mills. “We will not have one. The game plan will be to run our offense, defense and special teams - pretty basic - and evaluate guys and try to execute.

Two years ago, wide receiver LaQuan Williams was an undrafted free agent coming into Ravens training camp, getting advice and mentorship from former Ravens receiver Anquan Boldin on how to impress coaches and showcase his skills. Williams was fighting for a spot on the team either as a receiver or a return specialist, but with a thin receiving corps - Derrick Mason had just been released - and kick return specialist David Reed injured, chances were in Williams' favor. When final cuts came, Williams found his name on the 53-man roster thanks to his kick return abilities and Boldin's advice.

“You don't replace Anquan” Boldin. Those are the words of Tandon Doss, the man who is expected to be one of the leading combatants in the offseason royal rumble to replace the veteran receiver who was traded to the San Francisco 49ers in March. In fact, the Ravens selected Doss in the fourth round of the 2011 draft -- two rounds after fellow wide receiver Torrey Smith -- with an eye toward this very moment, when the Ravens would be moving on without Boldin. The story goes that in the months leading up to the 2011 draft, quarterback Joe Flacco scribbled his name on a list of the wide receivers he would like the Ravens to draft.

On Monday night, Eric DeCosta was in our house for once. The Ravens assistant general manager visited our offices down on Calvert Street to speak and answer reader questions in our latest Baltimore Sun Sports Forum. Among the highlights was DeCosta acknowledging that the team's “hunt goes on” for a veteran wide receiver . "We're still working. The roster is not set. We're always evaluating. We're always looking at guys,” DeCosta said. “Our pro personnel department looks at all available players and we'll make a decision at some point of what we want to do at that position.

Ray Rice was one of three Ravens who took a break from the team's offseason workout program Tuesday to chat with reporters. He appeared to be wearing black pajama pants, so maybe a nap was next on his agenda. Before he took off, he was asked about Torrey Smith, who is expected to be the team's top receiver in 2013. In his second NFL season, Smith caught 49 passes for 855 yards and a team-high eight touchdowns. His 17.4 yards-per-catch average was among the highest in the league in 2012.

The most debated move the Ravens made this offseason and arguably the biggest subtraction from their Super Bowl roster was the trade of gritty 32-year-old wide receiver Anquan Boldin to the San Francisco 49ers. Boldin never cracked 1,000 receiving yards in his three years in Baltimore, but he was quarterback Joe Flacco's favorite target and the team's leading receiver in each of the past three seasons. Boldin was traded after refusing to take a pay cut, something that owner Steve Bisciotti says was necessary, albeit very painful.

Rookie outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw has struggled with weight and shoulder problems, but he still should be more impressive than what he has shown in the preseason. When former Pro Bowl players Peter Boulware and Terrell Suggs started as rookie outside linebackers for the Ravens, you could see the talent right away. Boulware had a great first step and could dip his shoulders to get inside most offensive tackles when rushing the passer. With Suggs, he could change direction in almost full stride, but also had enough power to toss any linemen that got into his body or overextended.
