Question: What Ravens player will surprise everyone on the upside?
Answer: I’m not sure if it will qualify as a surprise, but running back Ray Rice is emerging as a more physical runner this year. Rice has gained some muscle in his upper body and should be better suited to run between the tackles.
He took the majority of the first-string carries during the minicamps with Willis Mcgahee sidelined following arthroscopic knee surgery. I thought Rice looked strong, quick and ready to shoulder a bigger workload this fall.
