2013 Outlook: Super Sleeper (high risk/potential)

Last updated on Aug-13-2013 by Ben Standig

Update (8-13): Already starving runway model thin at wide receiver, the Ravens took a hit, at least for a little bit, when Thompson suffered a sprained left foot. For now, it is significant enough for Baltimore to sit the sleeper option for Thursday's preseason game against the Falcons. Though he remains in the mix for significant work, sitting out for any significant length of time won't help the inexperienced Thompson salt away his role. He remains an intriguing, late round receiver worth monitoring

Another name to consider for the Ravens WR2/3 competition. Undrafted out of the University of Florida, the 6-foot Thompson made the team last year, though like many a backbencher, showed more potential in preseason than when the games turned real. Well, the latter had more to do with Baltimore having established option ahead of Thompson (who caught five passes for 51 yards) and that he lost his kick returner job to Jacoby Jones, which kept the rookie off the 53-man roster most weeks. Seeing as Jones previously lost an NFL WR2 job, it is conceivable that one of the Ravens sleeper candidates emerges. With his burst and route-running prowess, Thompson is indeed one to watch.
