This whole part of the country kind of throws . Jersey

Less than 24 hours after being traded to the Baltimore Ravens Youth Clay Matthews Jersey , Ty Montgomery was having a hard time familiarizing himself with his new surroundings."I've never spent any time in Maryland before. We are in Maryland, right?" Montgomery said. "This whole part of the country kind of throws me for a loop. I don't know if I'm in Virginia or what."Well, he know he's not in Green Bay anymore.The Packers traded the running back/kick returner for a seventh-round pick Tuesday, and Montgomery was given a quick tour of the Ravens training complex on Wednesday before talking to the media and heading out to practice.The Ravens (4-4) hope Montgomery — a 2015 third-round pick out of Stanford — can boost an unproductive running game that ranks 24th in the NFL at 96.6 yards per game and second-to-last with 3.6 yards per carry."He's one of those guys who can do a variety of things," quarterback Joe Flacco said. "We'll see what we can do this week in practice, how he progresses, and we'll get to see a little bit about what he's made of close and personal."If Montgomery learns the offense quickly enough, perhaps he can make a contribution in Sunday's important AFC North matchup against the division-leading Pittsburgh Steelers (4-2-1).Then again, coach John Harbaugh isn't quite ready to label Montgomery a savior for a team stuck in a two-game losing streak."You're making too much of it if you think it's a big story," Harbaugh said. "It's a good player, we're adding him, we're excited about it, to whatever degree it can help us."Montgomery had 26 carries for 105 yards and a touchdown in seven games with Green Bay, along with 15 catches for 170 yards.His last play with the Packers was one that arguably stood out more than any other. With Green Bay trailing the Los Angeles Rams 29-27 in the final two minutes Womens Blake Martinez Jersey , Montgomery fumbled a kickoff return after being told by coaches to take a touchback if the ball went into the end zone.That was not a topic he wanted to address during his first few hours in Maryland."I don't want to be rude, but I just don't even want to talk about it anymore," Montgomery said. "I will say, I was ready put all that in the past. So I guess it's going to turn into a fresh start, being on a new team."Alex Collins leads the Ravens with 358 yards rushing and rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson is second with 129. Baltimore has just one run of more than 20 yards, a 22-yard scramble by Jackson in Tennessee.Maybe Montgomery can help, but for eight weeks now the Ravens have been trying to get the running game in sync."We've just got to continue grinding," Flacco said. "If we trust our backs and trust our guys up front to continue to what they've been doing and maybe clean up a couple things here and there, then hopefully a couple of those (runs) will start hitting."If that happens, the Ravens just might get on a roll."That can change things like that," Flacco said, snapping his fingers. "Just getting a couple of those chunks, you get rolling and get defenses on their heels a bit, and they worry about it a little bit more." One more weekend remains in the football season with Super Bowl LIII set to kickoff Sunday evening in Atlanta. The Senior Bowl has come and gone and the NFL Combine is less than a month away. Since it’s Friday Womens Geronimo Allison Jersey , it seemed like a good time for another round of Packers musings but with a draft-themed twist. Much has been made about the Packers’ draft possibilities with two picks in the first round. But Green Bay’s bread and butter when most successful has been its ability to identify contributors in the middle and late rounds. Today’s article features three potential candidates Green Bay could consider outside of round one in the 2019 NFL Draft, adding on to what appears to be a promising group of mid-round picks a year ago.Deebo Samuel, WR, South CarolinaGreen Bay’s lack of a slot receiver has been noted in the early part of this offseason, especially with Randall Cobb’s expiring contract. I still think that the Packers explore under-the-radar veterans in free agency, but, in the event that they do not, there are many draftable prospects to consider. Yes, Green Bay selected three receivers a year ago, but none are true slot receivers.One player who has some similarities to Cobb is Samuel, a dynamic SEC receiver. The knock on the South Carolina product is injury, as Samuel suffered a broken leg in week three of the 2017 season. After a slow start to his senior season comeback, Samuel began to showcase his talents once again. Like Cobb, Samuel can play outside if needed but would be more dangerous from the slot as a six-foot target. He has a thicker frame than Cobb with a similar level of physicality Youth JK Scott Jersey , but breaks more tackles after the catch than Cobb showed in his younger years. Samuel also has kick return experience and would give Green Bay immediate help in that department.A good showing at the Senior Bowl increased Samuel’s status. But still within day-two range, Samuel could be an explosive threat in an innovative offense with his route-running and separation skills.Tyree Jackson, QB, BuffaloUnder Ron Wolf, the Packers’ philosophy was to draft a signal caller on a near-yearly basis. However, Green Bay has selected a quarterback just once since the 2012 season, drafting Brett Hundley in 2015. While they have had stability at the position and traded for DeShone Kizer last year, the Packers could be in line to begin that trend once again.I could see Jackson being a late riser as draft season progresses, but he’s currently a boom-or-bust third-day prospect. With a large build reminiscent of former Tampa Bay quarterback Josh Freeman, Jackson has strength as a runner and a powerful arm. As an overall passer, Jackson remains a bit raw and will need NFL coaching over time to fix mechanical issues with his slower release that leads to accuracy issues.Jackson could have used another year in college and was set to be a prime graduate transfer candidate. Instead, he will begin to state his case at the NFL Combine to be selected within the first three rounds. If not, Jackson would be an intriguing developmental prospect with Aaron Rodgers etched in as the Packers’ long-term starter under center. Isaac Nauta, TE Womens Davante Adams Jersey , GeorgiaAs a College Football Playoff squad, the Georgia Bulldogs had ample marquee television opportunities in 2018. And while Georgia has many future NFL talents - Jake Fromm, Deandre Baker, and Riley Ridley among others - one that consistently made big plays when most needed in the games I watched was Nauta, an early entry.Whether Green Bay keeps Jimmy Graham or not, it will need depth at tight end. Nauta improved significantly as a run blocker during his time with the Bulldogs, using his long arms to his advantage as a pass blocker as well. He has enough speed to stretch the field and his physicality as a runner and receiver made him a trustworthy target for Fromm.While many evaluators wonder if he will be able to separate at the next level, Nauta could be an excellent blocker at the position at the very least. Currently, Nauta could be a steal in the realm of rounds three or four.
