Three players who must exceed expectations in the Ravens-Rams preseason game The Ravens will face the Rams in their second of five preseason games tonight. A tough opponent such as Los Angeles will prove a good test for Baltimore's young players. Whether trying to solidify a starting role or just make the 53-man roster Justice Hill Baltimore Ravens Jersey , here are three players who need strong performances:Patrick Onwuasor The former undrafted inside linebacker won the starting job next to C.J. Mosley last year and enjoyed a solid season. Starting all 16 games, Onwuasor finished with 90 tackles, a sack, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. A major weakness for Baltimore's inside linebacker's in 2017, however, was pass coverage, specifically against tight ends. To help fix this issue, the Ravens drafted inside linebacker Kenny Young from UCLA in the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Young's strongest attribute entering the draft was his coverage ability, with run defense being his main weakness. So far through training camp and the Hall of Fame game, Young has looked strong against the run, which shouldn't come as a big surprise given Baltimore's history of successfully developing linebackers. If Young can continue to impress on the field, then he could find himself starting over Onwuasor. Onwuasor could fight back the rookie with a strong performance of his own against the Rams highly explosive offense Hayden Hurst Jersey 2019 , which is led by the 2017 NFL Offensive Player of the Year, running back Todd Gurley. Gurley will provide a daunting challenge for the third-year linebacker, as he looks to prove himself still worthy of the starting job.Matt SkuraAfter losing center Ryan Jensen in free agency, the Ravens now have an open competition for the position, mainly between Skura and Alex Lewis. Skura was the favorite to win the starting role heading into training camp, but he has reportedly struggled with bigger defensive tackles. Lewis has performed slightly better, but has a history of injuries. Skura could take the lead again with a sturdy game against Los Angeles. The Rams boast an intimidating defensive line, most notably Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh. With Donald currently holding out due to contract negotiations, Skura will only face Suh this preseason. This will be a prime opportunity for him to show that he can handle elite defensive lineman. With tackles such as Geno Atkins in the AFC North, Skura must show that he can match up with Suh if he hopes to win the starting job.Albert McClellanAfter missing all of the 2017 season with a torn ACL, the special teams captain now hopes to prove he still belongs in Baltimore. McClellan's main competition is former second-round pick Kamalei Correa. Correa was a key special teams player last season, and is coming off of a huge performance against the Bears in the Hall of Fame game White Hayden Hurst Jersey , where he had three sacks, a forced fumble and an interception. Correa offers the same versatility on defense as McClellan, playing both inside and outside linebacker. McClellan's leadership has been constantly praised by Ravens special teams coach Jerry Rosburg, so he has that in his favor over Correa. In the Hall of Fame game, however, McClellan did not look good, allowing a long gain through the air and a passing touchdown to fullback Michael Burton. At 32-years old, Baltimore may choose to finally part ways with the veteran. Correa, a former second-round pick, could sway the Ravens to keep him as well. If McClellan rebounds against Los Angeles with a solid game, then the coaching staff would be more inclined to keep the seasoned special teams leader. It's possible that both McClellan and Correa could make the roster, but with so much competition at seemingly every position Justin Tucker Jersey 2019 , it would be hard to justify keeping two very similar players. The Beatdown staff weighs in on Baltimore's first round selection"With the 25th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Baltimore Ravens have selected Oklahoma wide receiver Marquise "Hollywood" Brown.Baltimore Beatdown's Instant Reactions:'Hollywood' instantly adds a vertical threat that will unlock the Ravens offense. Perhaps the best playmaker in this draft class, Brown will bring elite run after the catch ability to Baltimore. He has some size and durability concerns, yet his upside is immense. Eric DeCosta's first pick as general manager fills the most pressing need on the roster with the top wideout in the class. - Vasilis LericosEric DeCosta chose to trade back with his old buddy Eagles GM Howie Roseman for the second consecutive year in the first round. At pick 25, Hollywood Brown gives the Ravens their one missing link in the receiver room. He can beat the press and take the top off the defense, and no other current receiver on the roster can do either of those consistently. Brown can be compared to a young Desean Jackson. Coming off an injury, hopefully he's ready to go sooner rather than later. Brown is from the same area as Lamar Jackson, which should help them build great chemistry.- Spencer SchultzThe track team is coming together. Brown is a home run hitter with comparisons to Desean Jackson and should in fit well with Lamar Jackson. A trade back into this scenario was ideal,and I have to say I'm very impressed with Eric DeCosta's initial first round as the Ravens GM. - Jake LouqueMarquise Brown wouldn't have been my first choice at wideout, but he'll definitely bring much needed speed and big play ability to the Ravens offense. Brown can consistently beat press coverage and separate from defenders, which can't be said for almost all receivers on the roster currently. He's also an underrated route-runner. Overall, solid value after trading back three spots to address a glaring need at wide receiver. - Frank J. PlatkoEric DeCosta looks to change the Ravens history of drafting poor receivers. With no true WR1 on the team White Justin Tucker Jersey , Marquise Brown has the opportunity to make a splash out the gate and help Lamar Jackson in his sophomore campaign. Grabbing arguably the draft's best receiver at 25 is a huge value, given it is the latest the position has come off the board in NFL history.-Sage MoranderBrown is a high risk, high reward pick. With blazing 4.3 speed and an elite run-after-the-catch ability, "Hollywood" is a legit game-breaking threat who could take it to the house on any given play. The biggest concern for Brown is his size (166 pounds) and recent Lisfranc injury. DeCosta chose to supply his young quarterback Lamar Jackson with a potentially dangerous weapon, and Ravens fans should be happy about that. - Dustin CoxSelecting a wide receiver or offensive lineman in the first round was the ideal move. DeCosta also mentioned they traded down with the hopes of Brown still being on the board at 25. While they liked him enough at 22, the Ravens brilliantly acquired extra picks while still getting their guy in the process. As for Brown, I'm excited to see Hollywood break the curse of receivers not panning out in Baltimore. His speed, hands and playmaking ability should be exciting to watch for years to come. - Kyle Barber
