Rating the QBs

How the Ravens' quarterbacks stacked up in yesterday's drills:


1. Kyle Boller

Moved the ball rapidly against the second-team defense, throwing a 25-yarder to Marc Lester before hitting John Jones for a 12-yard touchdown over the middle. In a red-zone drill, he was 2-for-3 with scoring passes to Marcus Robinson and Randy Hymes.


2. Chris Redman

Picked off by safety Ed Reed to begin team drills. Responded by marching offense into red zone by going 3-for-4 for 20 yards. In the red-zone session, he was held scoreless as Ron Johnson dropped a touchdown pass and Marcus Robinson was pulled out of bounds by a wide throw.

3. Anthony Wright

Did not take reps in team drills.
