      UPDATED: MESSAGE BOARDS CLOSING AFTER DRAFT   03/08/2017

      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

Once again a undrafted LB makes the Ravens roster through hard work and determination. He was great in college (http://www.meangreensports.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/zach_orr_847338.html) stats here. He's a leader, hard worker, hits anything that moves, he's just a all around great person and football player. Here's some highlights I found of him.

This was the shocker of the roster. I pride myself on knowing just about every player on our roster from mini camp to seasons end and I'd never heard of this guy.

Loved that second video. It appears he has it from the neck up and had the upbringing of high expectations. I'm excited. Looks like he has a lot of upside mentally as well as physically.

can't really tell much from that highlight, but he looks like he breaks down well, and he's got good length.  He did catch my eye a little against the saints.

Truth be told, earlier today was the first time I heard of this dude. Didn't follow TC or preseason as closely this year as I would've liked to. I thought he & Nigel Carr were the same person for some reason lol.

What's to know on him? Great vs the Pass? Vs the run? Special Teams? Versatility? What's his speciality?

With what tiny info I had to work with I've put together a shoddy profile indicating he has nice top speed for a linebacker but not as good acceleration, can tackle well and hard hitting, can rush the passer and is "hard to run off" and has potential to grow, nothing on his pass coverage ability at all. Seems like a more physically gifted/younger version of McClellan. A special teams ace for sure is what he sounds like to me. All of this is put together using very loose online sources. I haven't heard or seen much from around here about him though.

he was the UDFA that i was really pulling for, i never thought he would make the roster because i never really heard anything from him during TC and preseason. I was surprised that he made the roster but i thought (i really looked him up after he was signed as an UDFA, before that i had heard of him before but in passing from a friend of mine, so i really didnt knwo anything about him) after watching that video that you posted right after he was signed that he just felt like a Raven and i don't say that about a lot of guys. He's got potential as a rotational piece and a STer because he likes to hit and he's smart, plus he's high character and is humble so he's definitely the kind of guy you want on the roster.

He just seems like the Raven type.

Going off his collegiate stats, it seems he's mainly a heat seeking tackle machine. Better against the run than the pass, from what I've gathered.

 

That's probably what dropped him. He's a tackle machine, but he's raw in coverage, I'm guessing. For us, he'll be a ST ace.
