Ravens SS Matt Elam critical of his recent performances
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Ravens strong safety Matt Elam is his own worst critic. And he is not happy about his recent play.

Elam has allowed 14 receptions on 17 targets for 249 yards this season. Included were two catches, one of which resulting in a touchdown, in two targets to Buccaneers wideout Louis Murphy on Sunday.

"I'm not pleased with the last couple games at all," he told the Baltimore Sun. "That's why I'm working to get better every week to fine-tune the small things, so I won't have to say that about the next few weeks."

The difficulty of his task will be heightened in Week 7 against Atlanta, which features premier wide receivers Julio Jones and Roddy White.

Play of Ravens S Matt Elam defended by coordinator
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees has defended safety Matt Elam despite some negative numbers. Elam is allowing 76.9 percent of passes thrown his way to be completed. He is allowing an average of 21.4 yards per completion and is the second-worst safety in the NFL in coverage, per Pro Football Focus.

Pees, however, praised his work as a nickel back in Week 4 against Carolina. "Last week, I thought [Elam] played real well," he told ESPN. "We put him in the slot and nickel with very few reps against a good quarterback. ... there were two passes I don't know who would've defended them. He just put it on the money.

"Sometimes you got to say, 'Hey, that's the way it was.' We do a lot of stuff, and to throw a guy in a new position and learn it overnight, that's tough to do. My hat's off to Matt."

The first-round pick in 2013 has just one interception and four pass breakups in 20 games in the NFL.

Matt Elam expected to move to strong safety
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Ravens' Matt Elam is expected to move from free safety to strong safety for his second season, reports the Baltimore Sun. Current strong safety James Ihedigbo is a free agent.

Elam had 77 tackles, three passes defensed, two fumble recoveries and an interception while playing all 16 games. The paper expects the hard-hitting Elam "to make a much bigger impact" at strong safety, his more natural position.
