The Ravens want third-year RB Buck Allen to be more decisive when running the ball.

Allen appeared in all 16 games as a 2015 rookie and ran 137 times for 514 yards (3.8 YPC) and one score. Last season, however, Allen made just eight appearances with nine carries and was a healthy scratch much of the second half of the year. With the addition of Danny Woodhead, Allen's roster spot could be in jeopardy, especially once Kenneth Dixon's four-game suspension ends.

Breshad Perriman said his concentration level is at an "all-time high" entering his third NFL season.

Perriman has had a brutally hard-luck start to his NFL career, missing his entire first season with a PCL injury and then enduring the loss of close friend CB Tray Walker and a debilitating illness to his father, Brett. "I feel like my concentration level is at a pretty high level right now — an all-time high," Perriman said. "I'm just going out there, and when I'm on the field, I'm not thinking about anything but football." Perriman has drawn plaudits from TE Dennis Pitta and HC John Harbaugh at OTAs.

Ravens ILB C.J. Mosley is recovering from shoulder surgery, but it's not considered a long-term concern.

Coach John Harbaugh didn't provide an exact timeline, but it sounds like the team expects Mosley to be ready for camp. The Ravens didn't seem to have any worries about Mosley's health when they exercised his fifth-year team option for 2018 late last month. Coming off another strong year, Mosley is a candidate for a long-term deal.

Ravens TE Maxx Williams is recovering from a knee surgery "no other football player has had," but is expected to be ready for training camp.

That was the extent of coach John Harbaugh's update. Williams went down with a knee injury last Week 4, finishing the year on injured reserve with little in the way of update. The ailment was initially described as a "cartilage issue." The No. 55 overall pick of the 2015 draft, Williams was a playmaker in college, but has been an NFL bust so far.

Dennis Pitta says "nobody is making more plays" in Ravens OTAs than Breshad Perriman.

We would hope a 23-year-old former first-rounder would be able to light it up in padless practices, but it's still notable that Perriman is standing out. Perriman flashed as a sophomore after missing his entire rookie year with a knee injury, but was still exceedingly raw. He's supposedly improved his chemistry with Joe Flacco. After failing to add a receiver in the draft or free agency, the Ravens are putting the weight of the world on Perriman's shoulders.

Danny Woodhead (ACL) said he is practicing with "no restrictions."

"I’m just playing football now," he added. "I haven’t been thinking about needing to do stuff to rehab it because I’m healthy now." Woodhead tore his ACL on September 18, so he is eight months removed at this point. The Ravens may still baby him through the offseason program, but he should be full go for training camp. A great receiving back who is also a factor in the red zone, Woodhead is likely to be undervalued in both PPR and standard formats this year.

Ravens sophomore WR Keenan Reynolds recognizes "the opportunity is there" for him to make the final roster.

Baltimore is extremely thin behind Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman, who are the only two receivers on the roster who recorded more than 10 catches last season. It is still possible the Ravens add someone between now and training camp, but Reynolds is currently set to compete with the likes of Michael Campanaro and Chris Moore for a big role. Reynolds is also in the mix at returner, which only helps his roster chances.

Ravens ILB Kamalei Correa is the leading candidate to start next to C.J. Mosley.

Correa saw limited 2016 snaps, but the Ravens are counting on a second-year leap. He'll face veteran competition from Albert McClellan and Patrick Onwuasor, through rookie OLBs Tyus Bowser and Tim Williams could cut into his role. Correa's coverage and run defense are a concern, but he's a pass rush upgrade.
May 20 - 3:14 PM

Breshad Perriman says he is building chemistry with Joe Flacco.

Despite being with the organization for two seasons and playing all 16 games last year, injuries have limited Perriman's time with Flacco on the practice field, and that lack of familiarity showed up at times last season. Perriman says the duo have "been working every day running routes" during the offseason program this year and are "getting on the same page." It is still possible the Ravens acquire another receiver, but Perriman should blow by his 33/499/3 line from a year ago.
May 18 - 9:49 AM

Ravens signed third-round OLB Tim Williams to a four-year contract.

Williams broke the news himself on Instagram. Primarily a sub-package player at Alabama and on the old side for a rookie (24), Williams has work to do to become a three-down player, but he should at least be able to contribute as a pass rusher. The Ravens now have their entire draft class under contract.
May 18 - 8:45 AM

Ravens signed third-round DL Chris Wormley to a four-year contract.

The first of Baltimore's two third-rounders, Wormley posted the highest SPARQ rating among draft-eligible linemen. He projects as an immediate contributor on a defense that needs to fill Timmy Jernigan's snaps. With Wormley under contract, Tim Williams is the Ravens' only unsigned pick.
May 17 - 5:37 PM

Ben Watson (Achilles') reiterated he's ahead of schedule in his rehab.

Watson called the recovery the "toughest, longest and most strenuous rehab" of his career after tearing his Achilles' last preseason. "I'm at the point now where I'm very close," Watson said. "I'm able to do pretty much everything to some extent." Watson is the elder statesman of a crowded tight end group in Baltimore. Perhaps due to the team's lack of quality receiver depth, Baltimore could use more two- and three-tight end sets on offense this season.

Ravens WR Michael Campanaro is "looking to break out" this season.

Campanaro has flashed when he has been on the field, but those opportunities have been far too limited because of a litany of injury issues. With the Ravens desperate for help behind Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman, Campanaro once again has an opportunity to carve out a role, but he will have to stay healthy.
May 16 - 11:16 AM

The Ravens believe fourth-round sophomore Alex Lewis' best position is left guard.

In a perfect world that is where Lewis would play this season, but the Ravens have questions to answer at both center and right tackle. If they sign someone like recently released G Orlando Franklin, Baltimore could move Lewis to right tackle in order to get their best five linemen on the field, but that may hurt Lewis' long-term development at his natural position. The Ravens also do not have much room under the cap to add a veteran like Franklin, C Nick Mangold, or OT Ryan Clady, so they may simply have to stick with what they have.
May 16 - 9:35 AM

The Baltimore Sun reports Albert McClellan "could enter the equation" at inside linebacker for the Ravens.

Baltimore did not do much to replace retired ILB Zachary Orr, so they will have to fill the position from within. 2016 second-rounder Kamalei Correa is the heavy favorite, but the Ravens could turn to the veteran McClellan if Correa falters. McClellan played primarily on the outside last season, but he did start four games inside. Patrick Onwuasor is another name to watch in camp.
