Article about John Beck trying to take over the #2 spot with the Ravens at Deseret News.

http://www.deseretnews.com/article/700039763/NFL-John-Beck-trying-to-be-Ravens-No-2-QB.html?s_cid=rss-28

From the article...
And Beck has been able to help Dennis Pitta, his former BYU teammate, make the transition to the NFL. Pitta, a tight end, was taken in the fourth round in April by the Ravens in the annual NFL draft. He played one season for the Cougars with Beck, who threw for 11,021 yards and 79 touchdowns in three years as BYU's starting signal-caller.

Beck said he told the Ravens' front office about Pitta before the draft.

"I was hoping he would come here," Beck said.
