Lorenzo Taliaferro impresses in pass protection

Baltimore Ravens - [Full Article]

Ravens HC John Harbaugh said Lorenzo Taliaferro did a nice job of picking up the aiming points in the run scheme and then making the appropriate reads.

“I thought Lorenzo was very smooth running the ball,” Harbaugh said.

“He looks like he is a big guy, a downhill guy. I was very impressed with what kind of shape he is in. There is not an ounce of fat on him, and he is 230 pounds. [He is] very good at pass protection. I thought he showed excellent hands and get-away ability on his routes when he went against a linebacker. So [it was] all good that way.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Bernard Pierce is out with a shoulder injury, but should be ready for training camp. Ray Rice is facing suspension from the league though he will avoid a trial and possible jail time. Taliaferro could emerge as the Week 1 starter if Pierce's shoulder is not ready.
