The Ravens kept the helmets off for their final day of minicamp in what was still a fast-paced but dialed down final day of offseason practices.

Minicamp and Organized Team Activities were a success, in part because the Ravens came away from them in good physical condition.

Running back Keaton Mitchell (knee) is the only player on the roster not expected to be ready for training camp.

Head Coach John Harbaugh said cornerback Marlon Humphrey is dealing with “nagging things” that shouldn’t be a problem. Safety Kyle Hamilton (elbow) will also be ready for training camp. Outside linebacker David Ojabo has been doing positional drills and is should be full-go at some point in camp. Rookie outside linebacker Adisa Isaac should have enough time to get back from his tweaked hamstring in rookie minicamp. Veteran offensive lineman Patrick Mekari did not practice Thursday after walking off early Wednesday.

Here are more notes from Thursday's practice:

  • Lamar Jackson made a couple throws that stood out. One was a perfect deep shot down the sidelines that tight end Mark Andrews caught perfectly in stride despite tight coverage from linebacker Malik Harrison. Another was a laser to Rashod Bateman on the far sideline. Jackson missed some time at OTAs and had a few interceptions at minicamp (including another to Roquan Smith on Thursday), but he had a good minicamp.
  • Bateman was particularly busy Thursday, hauling in several passes from Jackson on the day.
  • Smith got his second interception of minicamp when Jackson threw one to him in the end zone.
  • One player that not a lot of people are talking about but who is looking good is defensive tackle Broderick Washington. Signed to a contract extension last offseason, Washington's stats dipped from his 2022 production. He's in great shape and looks ready for a better 2024. He beat Daniel Faalele for what would've been a sack on Thursday and popped on a few occasions in minicamp.
  • First-round rookie cornerback Nate Wiggins has a good feel for route concepts. He made a nice play early in practice dropping off his man to come underneath on a throw to Malik Cunningham. Wiggins would've had a monster hit on him in a game.
  • Second-year linebacker Trenton Simpson broke up an end-zone pass intended for Andrews. Simpson has gotten a lot of reps in pass coverage in minicamp. He's had his hands full with the Ravens' tight ends and certainly hasn't won all of them, but he's consistently been in good position.
  • Slot cornerback Arthur Maulet has been a turnover machine in minicamp, but he dropped an interception that hit him right in the chest Thursday. He immediately also dropped to do push-ups.
  • Long-limbed wide receiver Sean Ryan, who spent last season on the Ravens' practice squad, continued to make plays. He had a sparkling leaping touchdown grab, using all six feet and three inches of his body.

The Ravens took the field Wednesday for mandatory minicamp at the Under Armour Performance Center.
