Being a rookie in the National Football League isn’t always easy for some, as it takes time to get acclimated to the speed of the NFL game. However, in only his first training camp for the Baltimore Ravens, first-round pick Tyler Linderbaum is already showing the coaching staff that he has what it takes to be a great player as a professional for a long time.

Ravens offensive line coach Joe D’Alessandris was asked what his thoughts have been about Tyler Linderbaum’s performance in training camp so far, and the coach responded with plenty of praise. He talked about how the rookie is able to learn at a high level and apply what he’s taught, as well as a bit about his leadership role.

“Tyler [Linderbaum] is doing a really nice job. He’s come in here, from Day One, learning the system, learning communication, applying it. [When] you correct him, he applies it again, fixes the problem, and he’s doing a really nice job. His leadership role is growing. He’s doing a really good job for us.”

Having Linderbaum at center should provide stability to the center position for years to come for the Ravens. He’s a bit on the smaller side for the position, but uses his athleticism to his advantage and was one of the best center prospects to come out of college in years. He should be key in protecting quarterback Lamar Jackson, which is one of the top priorities for Baltimore.
