Found October 02, 2012 on NFL Draft Zone:

In an article written by Matt Zenitz of Carroll County Times today, Adrian Hamilton the former Dallas Cowboys pass rusher and current Baltimore Ravens practice squader is making an impact in B-More.

Zenitz wrote, Ravens coach John Harbaugh praised Hamilton at the time. And Monday, Harbaugh left open the possibility of Hamilton being promoted to Baltimore’s active roster at some point this season.

“Like anybody, part of it is opportunity,” Harbaugh said. “Part of it is going to be how it shakes out personnel-wise in the next week. He’s doing everything he can do. He’s learning the defense — that’s a big part of it — and he’s learning special teams — that’s a big part of it. In order for a guy to become active — as you know — there has to be role for him on Sunday.

“He’s displayed a lot of talent,” Harbaugh added. “He’s displayed some ability both pass rushing and run defense-wise, and he’s learning our special teams. He’s a guy that I’ve talked to and tried to put a little bug in his ear about getting as much done as he can every day and putting himself in position where we can consider [putting him on the active roster].”

Hamilton will need to step it up on special teams if he wants to hear his name called up, but he probably is one of the best pass rushers coming out of the NCAA last year.  He had 20.5 sacks and led the SWAC and nation in that category last year.  We at @NFLDraftZone love Adrian and wish him the best of luck.
