Considering there’s little contact during the Ravens' Organized Team Activities (OTAs) and minicamp, the wide receivers are an easy position for the media to evaluate. They’re either getting open or they’re not.
Despite a crowded wide receiver position full of talent, and another rookie in sixth-round pick Tommy Streeter, it was Deonte Thompson who often stood out.
He said his best 40-yard dash time is 4.23 seconds. He ran indoor track at Florida his first two years, and reached the SEC championship in the 60 meters.
“I’ve got some wheels,” Thompson said with a laugh. “I think they haven’t seen my knack for big plays. I feel like every time I touch the ball, there’s a possibility of something big happening.”
