Ravens selected Notre Dame OT Ronnie Stanley with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

After months of Laremy Tunsil hype, Stanley is the first tackle off the board. Stanley (6'6/312) made 39 starts for the Irish — all at tackle — and earned second-team All-America honors as a senior. He has long arms (35 5/8") and big hands (10 5/8"), and combines terrific foot quickness with active hands. Stanley's weaknesses are his lack of a power game and average measurable athleticism. Ultimately, Stanley projects as a day-one starter who's ready to block NFL edge rushers. He'll have to learn to run block on the job. With Eugene Monroe still in the fold, Stanley will likely begin his NFL career at right tackle.

FOX Sports' Alex Marvez reports the Chargers won't be taking Notre Dame OT Ronnie Stanley with the No. 3 overall pick.

It's looking more and more like the Bolts are zeroed in on Oregon DE DeForest Buckner, though Florida State DB Jalen Ramsey is also a possibility. The Bolts have major needs on both lines, but it's more urgent on defense. San Diego could field a quality offensive line if the unit in place simply gets better injury luck.

MMQB's Peter King reports Notre Dame's Ronnie Stanley is the top tackle on the Jaguars' board.

This is mostly academic considering the Jaguars are highly unlikely to draft a tackle at No. 5, but it is more evidence some teams value Stanley over Laremy Tunsil, who was once believed to be the odds-on favorite for the No. 1 pick. The Chargers are reportedly high on Stanley as well, and it is possible he is the first non-quarterback selected. The Chargers are also reportedly interested in DeForest Buckner and Jalen Ramsey.

According to Profootballtalk.com, "word is getting around" that Notre Dame LT Ronnie Stanley is in play for the Chargers at No. 3 overall.

PFT's Mike Florio notes that Mike Mayock sent Stanley to San Diego in his Wednesday mock draft, and Bleacher Report passed along a similar rumor. Per Florio, NFL teams regard Stanley as a "safer pick" than Laremy Tunsil. Florio further speculates that the Chargers leaked Stanley's name in an effort to drive trade interest toward the top of the draft. Other candidates to go to San Diego are Tunsil, DeForest Buckner, and Jalen Ramsey.

NFL Network's Mike Silver reports there is "some sense" the Chargers could take Notre Dame OT Ronnie Stanley with the No. 3 overall pick.

Silver has been cheerleading for Stanley, but it jibes with what SI's Peter King reported Monday. Per King, Stanley "might be in the process of passing" Ole Miss' Laremy Tunsil as the best regarded tackle in the draft.

NFL Network's Michael Silver reports "several GMs" believe Notre Dame's Ronnie Stanley is the best tackle in the draft.

This jibes with a Monday report from Peter King, who wrote Stanley is "in the process of passing" Laremy Tunsil as the best tackle in the draft. No matter the order, both players are expected to go in the top 10, with one of them potentially going to the Chargers at No. 3. The Ravens (No. 6), 49ers (No. 7) and Titans (trade up from No. 15) are also likely landing spots.

According to SI's Peter King, Notre Dame LT Ronnie Stanley "might be in the process of passing" Laremy Tunsil as the top tackle in this year's class.

This isn't a knock on Tunsil, but simply praise for Stanley, whose stock appears to be on the rise. After the Titans dropped from No. 1 to No. 15, Stanley became linked to Tennessee. It'd now be a shock if he fell that far. King connects Stanley as high as the Chargers at No. 3 and ultimately has Stanley being taken in the top-eight picks. Stanley stands 6'6/312 with monster hands and vine-like arms.

Trent Richardson has shed 22 pounds this offseason and is down to 218.

The Ravens' website has before and after pictures of Richardson, and he's noticeably more cut after working out all offseason with trainer and ex-Alabama teammate Mike McCoy. At 218, Richardson is lighter than his listed playing weight in college. The former No. 3 overall pick ballooned to 240 over the winter. Richardson has a huge opportunity in a congested Ravens backfield.

CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco believes Notre Dame LT Ronnie Stanley "could be the choice" for the 49ers if he's still available at No. 7.

Ole Miss LT Laremy Tunsil will probably be off the board by the time the Niners pick, leaving Stanley and Michigan State's Jack Conklin as the top remaining tackles. Maiocco sees Stanley as a better fit for Chip Kelly's offense because of his superior athleticism. If the Niners do pick Stanley, Maiocco suspects he would start at right tackle while being groomed to eventually replace Joe Staley on the left side.

Darren Waller confirmed the Ravens have asked him to switch to tight end.

"I’m excited about it," Waller said. "I’ve been playing different positions since high school, so I think picking new things up won’t be hard. It’s just applying everything and being comfortable with it. It’s working at it every day and focusing on the fundamentals." The 6-foot-6, 245-pound pass catcher played quarterback and safety in high school before switching to receiver at Georgia Tech. It is an interesting experiment for the Ravens, but it is unlikely Waller is able to crack a suddenly deep tight-end rotation this season.

Ravens re-signed S Jermaine Whitehead.

He was an exclusive rights free agent. Whitehead spent most of his rookie year on the 49ers' practice squad before joining Baltimore in late December. The Auburn alum has yet to play an NFL snap.

Ravens CB Jimmy Smith said his ankle is still giving him trouble.

Smith was not reported to have an ankle injury last season, but it is possible the issue has something to do with the Lisfranc surgery he underwent in November of 2014. Smith struggled coming off that injury, and it is not a good sign he is less than 100 percent at this point in the offseason. The Ravens could look to add some corner help in the draft.
Apr 19 - 1:02 PM

Joe Flacco (knee) said he has resumed running.

He has yet to begin throwing in earnest, but he said that should come in the near future. Flacco expects to be ready by the time training camp opens, but he will likely be babied through the preseason. He should be a full-go by Week 1.

Breshad Perriman (PCL) participated in running drills as the Ravens began their offseason program on Monday.

The Ravens won't hold practices until May 24, but they released photos and video evidence of Perriman running full stride with teammates. Perriman was running fast on video, but didn't make any cuts. He was also spotted without a brace on his troublesome knee. The 26th overall pick in last year's draft, Perriman didn't play a single down as a rookie due to persistent PCL injuries.

Ravens re-signed WR Jeremy Butler, WR Kaelin Clay and OL Ryan Jensen.

All three were exclusive rights free agents. Butler caught 31 passes for 363 yards in the Ravens' injury-depleted receiver corps last season. With Mike Wallace signed and Steve Smith (Achilles') and Breshad Perriman (knee) expected back at full health, it is very unlikely he gets the same opportunity this year.
