Flacco Turning Heads During First Ravens Camp

Flacco throws during camp

It’s been a whirlwind few days for Ravens rookie QB Joe Flacco, but the first-round draft pick is learing fast, and looking good at his first Ravens rookie camp.  “It’s pretty cool,” Flacco said on Sunday.  “It’s a lot of fun to learn something new every day.  There was a lot thrown at us, and I did the best job I could to absorb as much as I could.  It was a good experience. I don’t think it’s intimidating.  You’re just anxious to get out there and see what it’s like.  I’ve grown a lot over the past three days.  I got to know everybody, and I think it worked out well.”

Flacco has been the talk of camp so far, as players on the team have been impressed with his arm, as well as how he places the ball.  While it’s too early to say Flacco is anywhere near being the starter, one can imagine him being under center at some point in the 2008 season.  “He can throw the ball, he’s smart,” coach John Harbaugh said.  “The thing I saw when we were moving the ball is he’s got to get the ball out quicker.  Those guys can cover some ground when they’re blitzing and he’s got the red jersey on now so he didn’t feel the ramifications of that.  I think he understands the speed of the game a little bit at this level.”
