It was a fairly rough debut for the Ravens' top wide receivers last week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as Torrey Smith, Tandon Doss, Jacoby Jones and Deonte Thompson combined for just three catches for 21 yards with three drops. Plus, quarterback Joe Flacco was intercepted on a sideline pass intended for Jones, who hasn't had a particularly impressive training camp. A better showing is necessary as the Ravens overhaul a receiving corps that no longer has the reliable presence of Anquan Boldin following an offseason trade. Although newcomer Brandon Stokley just joined the team, the Ravens are expected to involve him in a limited package of plays that highlight his chain-moving capabilities as a slot receiver.
