It was great to get out and watch a Ravens practice this afternoon, though it would have been greater if it had taken place somewhere like San Diego. The temperature wasn't bad, but the humidity was as thick as a phonebook, which might explain why No. 2 draft pick Torrey Smith was battling calf cramps throughout the opening workout. Terrell Suggs also was hobbling with what appears to be a minor hamstring strain.

The local colleges were well-represented in the rookie receiving corps, with Smith and LaQuan Williams from Maryland and Hakeem Moore from Towson. The only other local player is veteran cornerback Domonique Foxworth.

The Ravens announced the signing of 26 undrafted free agents today. Only a couple -- Williams and Moore -- are likely to be familiar names around here. If you want proof that the Ravens scouting department throws out a wide net and is truly objective, consider that the 26 players come from 24 different college programs. The only colleges to have two players on the list were Hawaii and Auburn.
