The fallout from Terrell Suggs' low hit on Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford entered Day Three with the NFL acknowledging there shouldn't have been a flag thrown on the play and Ravens coach John Harbaugh defending the veteran linebacker amid accusations he's a dirty player.
Terrell Suggs' low hit on quarterback Sam Bradford, which drew a roughing the passer penalty and prompted at least one Philadelphia Eagles player to call the outside linebacker a dirty player, got all the attention. But it was only one of 17 penalties for 139 total yards for the Ravens.
We're waiting to see what is going on with Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs. If he is indeed the leader of the Ravens defense, they took the perfect cue from him Saturday night in the the team's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field.
Ravens offensive line coach Juan Castillo¿s return to Philadelphia was occasion for the longtime Eagles assistant to compare one of his best players in Philadelphia, Jason Peters, to current Ravens left tackle Eugene Monroe.
Although Castillo coached several Pro Bowl blockers as the Philadelphia Eagles' longtime offensive line coach like Tra Thomas, Jermane Mayberrry, Jon Runyan, Jason Peters and Shawn Andrews, he also had a hand in recruiting and developing several undrafted free agent offensive linemen that became starters. That includes Hank Fraley from Robert Morris and Jamaal Jackson out of Delaware State.
Every week, I hope to bring you a quick Q&A with someone who covers the Ravens' opponent that week. On Sunday, the Ravens travel to Philly to take on the 1-0 Eagles, so naturally I would chat with Sheil Kapadia, a former Baltimore Sun staffer who helped create the tremendous Birds 24/7 blog for Philadelphia Magazine.
Organized team activities and mandatory minicamp have come and gone, and the Ravens are off enjoying a little down time before the start of training camp.

The scouting combine and most pro day workouts have been completed, and with the NFL draft just a few weeks away, there has been a significant amount of shuffling in my third NFL mock draft of the offseason. So who will the Ravens pick?
