When the Baltimore Ravens selected cornerback Marlon Humphrey in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft,Authentic Curtis Samuel Jersey, they clearly expected him to be able to take on the league’s top talent. In his first training camp practice,Authentic Harrison Butker Jersey, Baltimore threw that competition right at him in the form of former first-round wide receiver Breshad Perriman.

“It seemed pretty game-like,womens Mitchell Trubiskyn Jersey, and I’m not used to doing something like that in practice,womens Daeshon Hall Jersey, so that was definitely different, the competitiveness with it. You know, one of the best receivers on the team versus the rookie kid,” Humphrey said about practicing against Perriman on Thursday. “I liked it, so it was fun, and it was a good little challenge.”

Humphrey and Perriman went one-on-one with the whole team watching, but Humphrey came out ahead on the play. “I got a PBU [pass breakup],” Humphrey continued. “I was a little too tired to celebrate after – he was really rolling. He was definitely rolling.”

It’s a pretty good sign for the rookie cornerback going against one of the fastest players in the league.

Humphrey,Authentic Taylor Moton Jersey, is used to playing under Alabama coach Nick Saban and dealing with some of the most disciplined practices in all of college football. But a practice at Alabama is not anywhere close to what it can be on the NFL level.

“A little tiring,Authentic Daeshon Hall Jersey,'Authentic Mitchell Trubiskyn Jersey,” Humphrey said when asked how to describe his first NFL practice. “I don’t know if we practiced three hours back in college,womens Harrison Butker Jersey,'womens Taylor Moton Jersey, but it was fun. I like the one-on-one thing; I like the competitiveness. I think that’s a big part of this team, the competitive nature,womens Curtis Samuel Jersey, and sometimes it’s going to be you versus the guy in front of you and you know the ball is coming, so it’s just whoever wins. So, game-like battles. That’s going to happen in the game a lot, first practice went pretty good. [I’m] a little winded, but I think everybody is a little winded. I think it went good.”

A Baltimore practice is even more intense playing against a determined receiver like Perriman, who is on a mission to silence his critics this season. If Humphrey likes the competitive nature of early practice, things will only get more interesting for him as training camp continues and everything gets more complex.

Humphrey is getting a lot of good preparation in practice early in his career. That should help him going up against Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown and Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green in the AFC North.
