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.

Maryland wide receiver Deon Long has been suspended for two weeks for violating university policy. The suspension was disclosed today but began at an earlier date - meaning Long will return in less than two weeks. The university did not release further details. The Red-White game is April 12. Long, who grew up in the area and attended Iowa Western Community College, will compete for immediate playing time once the season begins. He began spring practices atop the depth chart at one of the receiver positions.

With the 198th pick in the 2012 NFL draft (sixth round), the Ravens drafted speedy Miami wide receiver Tommy Streeter. The Ravens have said they hoped to add a wide receiver during the draft, and Streeter is a tall vertical target that, in theory, would help them expand their developing downfield passing attack. A hair under 6 feet 5, Streeter has excellent downfield speed for his size. At the scouting combine, he ran the 40-yard dash at 4.40 seconds, which was among the top times among wide receivers.

When the Ravens open the season against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, fans will take solace that Anquan Boldin and Lee Evans will start at wide receiver. There is, however, no such certainty with regards to the No. 3 receiver. When the offense goes to a three-receiver set, rookies Torrey Smith, Tandon Doss or LaQuan Williams could line up in the slot or on the outside. The development of the No. 3 receiver will be an important facet if the Ravens intend to improve as an offense.

Jelani Roberts remembers watching Northwestern's Venric Mark a couple years ago. The speedy three-star receiver who will be a senior at Gilman this fall saw how Mark torched his opponents for more than 1,300 rushing yards and more than 600 combined return yards in 2012, scoring 14 total touchdowns. Most of all, it was Mark's size that drew Roberts to Northwestern's All-American return man. At 5-feet-8 and 175 pounds, Mark was by no means an intimidating figure, but he continued to produce highlight-reel worthy plays on the field.

Baltimore Sun reporters, editors and columnists each give an opinion on whom the Ravens should select with the No. 17 overall pick in Thursday night's first round of the NFL draft. Jeff Zrebiec, reporter LB C.J. Mosley, Alabama: He may be long gone by the time the Ravens are on the clock, but if he's available, I'd have a hard time resisting an instinctive and fast linebacker with an impeccable work ethic and great leadership skills. The Ravens have bigger needs mind you but something about Mosley tells me he'll be an impact player on Day 1. And if anybody knows the value of an impact middle linebacker, it is the Ravens.

Free agent LaQuan Williams , a wide receiver out of Maryland who made the 2011 Ravens as an undrafted free agent and played parts of two seasons with the organization, is re-signing with the team. “Feels good to be back home Raven Nation,” Williams wrote on his Twitter account. The 25-year-old will agree to a one-year deal. Williams, who played his high school football at Poly, has been out of the NFL since last November and hasn't played in a regular-season game since the 2012 season.

Ravens reserve wide receiver Deonte Thompson's felony and misdemeanor drug charges have been dismissed by Florida prosecutors, according to his lawyer and court records. Thompson was arrested in February in Gainesville, Fla., and charged with felony possession of marijuana and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. The case against Thompson was dropped due to insufficient evidence against him, according to Alachua County court records. Alvon Summerall, a co-defendant and the driver of the car that was stopped with Thompson a passenger, has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor possession of marijuana, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia and driving with a suspended license, according to court records.
