Ravens WR Donte' Stallworth looks sharp

All eyes were on new Ravens wide receiver Anquan Boldin during the team's first full-squad training camp practice Friday morning. Boldin made a few nice catches, including a touchdown reception during the two-minute drill.

Donte' Stallworth, the Ravens' other veteran addition at wide receiver, was impressive Friday, too, showing few signs of rust after serving his one-year suspension (he plead guilty to a DUI manslaughter charge in 2009).

Running mostly with the second team, Stallworth showed signs that he could be more than just an occasional deep threat in the Ravens offense. He was sharp running short routes across the formation, and it looks like he can be pretty productive out of the slot.

In one-on-one drills, he toasted rookie cornerback Prince Miller down the left sideline for a 50-yard reception. Then, on his next crack, Stallworth ran a crisp comeback route and hauled in a diving catch with cornerback Cary Williams all over his back. Sure, it was just a less-than-significant individual drill, but Stallworth still stood out.

The Ravens' top four receivers -- Boldin, Derrick Mason, Mark Clayton and Stallworth -- can all line up out wide or in the slot, so expect offensive Cam Cameron to shift around his personnel to create mismatches. It's going to be fun watching what Cameron has cooked up during training camp.
