02:28 PM ET 05.25 | Despite only being on the team for a few months and only having taken part in a few OTA practices thus far, new Baltimore Ravens defensive end/linebacker Elvis Dumervil is establishing himself as a leader on the team. Head coach John Harbaugh has praised Dumervil for being dependable and someone he always admired when he played for the Denver Broncos. Now that Dumervil is on the Ravens, Harbaugh appreciated what Dumervil brings to the table even more, according to the Carroll County Times. "It seems like Elvis has made the transition," Harbaugh said after the Ravens' OTA practice Wednesday. "He has been here every day. He hasn't missed one thing since he's been here. I feel like he's emerging as a leader for our football team. He has had no problem learning the defense." The defensive standout couldn't be happier with his current situation. "I've come to a first-class organization [from] the owner, down," Dumervil said. "Head coach, [general manager and executive vice president] Ozzie [Newsome] and those guys really demonstrate the way they want things to be done."

Just coming in? an automatic "Captain" ,remains too be seen.

I look at J.Harrison [Cincy got in FA] I wouldn't automatically make him one. I think Vontaze Burfict, can name that tune.

As he's gonna be on the field more than James.

LCB'

I guess he has too be a Leader ,as there's hardly anymore proven vets with Baltimore anymore.

Cincy has Vontaze Burfict, and a few other gifted 2nd and rooks.

How the x-Steeler [James Harrison does?] has too make an immediate impact for the Bengals.

Ifn he can't either adjust too a 4-3,will be one of the best tests, he'll haft too deal with.

Zimmer runs the D ? ,obviously ,has too squeeze him in. on certain downs.

That the Steelers/Ravens and Browns, already know his strength and weakest are.

2 things:

First, just what are you smoking? Defense - Suggs, Ngata, McClain, Spears, Canty, Dumervil, Huff. Offense - Flacco, Rice, Yanda, Shipley. Plenty of experience there including playoffs and a super bowl.

Second, How did cincy and harrison get into this thread? A desperate plea to make the bungles relevant?

We just have to carry Flacco again for the 16 games.
