The Ravens first round pick is learning things fast. Matt Elam is known for laying bit hits on his opponent, and that’s what he longs to do right now in June.
“It hurt my heart to pull up but these are my teammates,” said Elam. “I have to take care of them. I run down on guys every rep I take so when the time comes, I’ll be ready for it.”
Elam made quite a number of plays in minicamp. He even picked off Joe Flacco at one point. It’s even been noted that he made crazy plays on the ball.
“I’m very pleased and I’m very confident,” Elam said. “I came in and I was able to play really fast because they are calling the defense really fast. I’m just learning from the older guys every day. I feel like they gave me a boost and taught me a lot of things. They gave me a lot of confidence.”

That's a special quality they cherish on Father's Day, and every day.
