Ravens signed Duke C Matt Skura.

Skura (6'3/305) made 40 starts for Duke -- all at center -- and earned first-team All-ACC as a senior. A plodding athlete, Skura managed a 5.39 forty and 24-inch vertical in Indy. He did bench 225 pounds 30 times at Duke's Pro Day and is a fundamentally-sound blocker with 35 1/4" arms. Skura may not grow into an NFL starter, but he offers guard-center versatility and could carve out a career as an interior reserve.

Ravens signed Stony Brook LB Victor Ochi.

Ochi (6'1/246) earned 2015 co-Defensive Player of the Year in the Colonial Athletic Conference, leading the CAA in both tackles for loss (16.5) and sacks (13). An okay-not-great athlete, Ochi ran 4.86 with a 32-inch vertical and 9-foot-11 broad jump at the Combine. Ochi is a short and stubby, old-school-Steelers-style outside rusher who beat up on low-level college blockers with power and effort. Ochi is a long shot, but he shined at the East-West Shrine Game and offers some developmental pass-rush skills.

Ravens signed Harvard OL Anthony Fabiano.

Fabiano (6'4/303) was a four-year starter for the Crimson, seeing action all over the line and earning first-team All-Ivy League in 2015. His stock elevated at Harvard's Pro Day, running 5.04 with a 32 1/2-inch vertical and 25 bench-press reps. Fabiano battled turf toe as a senior and eventually required surgery. Seen as an interior-only prospect in the scouting community, Fabiano is worth a shot due to his athleticism and versatility.

Ravens selected Virginia CB Maurice Canady with the No. 209 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Canady (6'1/193) made 32 starts for the Cavs, compiling 29 pass breakups, five interceptions, and four forced fumbles. Canady's draft stock received a boost at the Combine, where he ran 4.49 with a 38-inch vertical and 10-foot-4 broad jump. Canady's game tape is more worrisome; he was torched for ten TD passes the last two seasons and shows an aversion to contact in run support. Canady has some starting-caliber traits, but was a fringe-NFL prospect at UVA. He's a boom-bust pick who appears more likely to bust.
Apr 30 - 5:08 PM

Ravens selected Navy ATH Keenan Reynolds with the No. 182 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft.

Reynolds (5'10/190) was a prolific dual-threat quarterback at Navy, finishing fifth in Heisman voting as a senior and setting FBS career records in rushing touchdowns (88) and points scored (530). Snubbed for a Combine invite, Reynolds turned in a solid Pro Day showing 4.57 speed with a 37-inch vertical and 10-foot broad jump. NFL scouts were mixed on Reynolds' next-level position, with some forecasting him at tailback, others slot receiver, and others still defensive back. Reynolds said on ESPN the Ravens plan to try him at receiver and punt returner.

Speaking on NFL Network, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Justin Forsett (arm) is back to 100 percent.

He sat out the Ravens' final six games last season with a broken arm. Forsett earned a three-year deal after his breakout season in 2014 (career-high 1,266 yards and eight touchdowns) but he turns 31 in October and the Ravens may have drafted his eventual replacement in fourth-round pick Kenneth Dixon. The veteran will open training camp as the No. 1 back but he'll have to work hard to stay ahead of Dixon and Buck Allen.
Apr 30 - 2:58 PM

Ravens selected Grand Valley State DE Matt Judon with the No. 146 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Judon (6'3/275) led the NCAA in sacks (20) as a senior, earning Division 2's Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) Defensive Player of the Year. He showed NFL-caliber athleticism at the Combine, running 4.79 with a 35-inch vertical and 30 reps on the bench. Judon has a ways to go from a technical standpoint, but he offers intriguing traits and plus length (33 7/8-inch arms). He's a developmental pass rusher with some possibility of becoming a starter down the road.
Apr 30 - 2:18 PM

Ravens selected Louisiana Tech RB Kenneth Dixon with the No. 134 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Dixon (5'10/215) rewrote the La Tech record books, parlaying 801 career carries into 4,480 yards (5.59 YPC) and 72 touchdowns. He caught 88 passes and accounted for 87 all-purpose TDs, second all time in FBS history. Despite running behind an awful offensive line, Dixon was a dominant collegiate whose tape shows nifty jump cuts, natural inside running skills, and top-notching passing-game production, even excelling in blitz pickup. Dixon shined in Indy, blazing 4.56 with explosive vertical (37 1/2") and broad (10'1") jumps. A dynamic multi-phase threat, Dixon has a chance to become a mid-range NFL starter. Despite a surprising slide in the fourth round, expect Dixon to immediately push Buck Allen and Justin Forsett for snaps in Baltimore.
Apr 30 - 1:53 PM

Ravens selected Michigan DT Willie Henry with the No. 132 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft.

Henry (6'3/303) made 22 starts on the Wolverines' defensive line, amassing 18.5 career tackles for loss and ten sacks. He was an honorable mention All-Big Ten selection as a senior. Henry turned in a solid Combine workout, running 5.0-flat with a 30 1/2-inch vertical and 28 bench-press reps. A three-technique prospect with some power to his game and plenty of up-field burst, Henry has a legitimate chance to develop into an NFL starter.
Apr 30 - 1:46 PM

Ravens selected Nebraska OT Alex Lewis with the No. 130 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft.

Lewis (6'6/312) spent two years at Nebraska after transferring from Colorado, making 26 starts at left tackle and earning second-team All-Big Ten from the conference's coaches as a senior. Lewis has long arms (34") with a left tackle frame, but his best NFL position will be right tackle due to slow-ish feet. Lewis' likeliest NFL projection is a swing tackle with some potential to grow into a lower-end starter.
Apr 30 - 1:42 PM

Ravens selected Cincinnati WR Chris Moore with the No. 107 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft.

Moore (6'1/206) was a three-year starter at Cincinnati, recording 119 catches for 2,301 yards (19.3 YPR) and 26 TDs. He ranked second in the American Athletic Conference in yards per reception (21.1) as a senior. Moore's long arms (33 3/8") create a wide catching radius, and he showed plus athleticism in Indy with a 4.53 forty, 37-inch vertical, and 10-foot-10 broad jump. A natural tracker of the ball in flight, Moore's drawbacks are his hip stiffness and tendency to body catch. He's a pure vertical receiver who doesn't necessarily offer enough deep speed to win vertically in the pros. Long term, Moore would do well to earn a steady third receiver job.
Apr 30 - 12:37 PM

Ravens selected Temple CB Tavon Young with the No. 104 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Young (5'9/183) was a 2 1/2-year starter for the Owls, logging eight career tackles for loss and seven interceptions. His Combine measurables were good-not-great, running 4.46 with a 34 1/2-inch vertical. Young has short arms (30 5/8") and ended his senior year weighing just 180 pounds. Still one of Mike Mayock's favorite sleepers, Young's strengths are quick feet and elite change-of-direction skills, making him a slot-corner candidate when he gets stronger.
Apr 30 - 12:27 PM

Ravens selected DE Bronson Kaufusi with the No. 70 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Kaufusi (6'7/285) started 3 1/2 seasons at BYU, tallying 44 tackles for loss with 26.5 sacks and five forced fumbles. A coach's son, Kaufusi's father Steve coached the Cougars' defensive line and has also spent time in the NFL. Kaufusi has long arms (34 1/2") and is an 82nd-percentile SPARQ athlete, running 4.87 with excellent agility scores. He also spent time on the BYU basketball team. A productive, high-motor prospect with NFL-level movement ability, Kaufusi's ceiling may be lowered by his age; he'll be a 25-year-old rookie after a Mormon mission delayed his college career. He should slot in as a five-technique defensive end for the Ravens.
Apr 29 - 9:57 PM

Ravens selected Boise State OLB Kamalei Correa with the No. 42 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Correa (6'3/243) started 27 games for the Broncos, tallying 31.5 career tackles for loss, 20 sacks, and five forced fumbles. He earned first-team All-Mountain West in 2014 and second-team accolades last year, before turning pro. Correa's Combine was okay-not-great, running 4.69 with a 33-inch vertical and disappointing 9-foot broad jump. Correa is a lightweight, high-effort pass rusher with some explosion to his game, but lacks a power element and needs to refine his technique. He may be a year or two away from challenging for consistent snaps behind Terrell Suggs, Elvis Dumervil, and Za'Darius Smith.
Apr 29 - 8:01 PM

Ravens OL coach Juan Castillo confirms No. 6 pick Ronnie Stanley will compete with Eugene Monroe at left tackle.

Monroe has struggled to stay healthy the past two seasons. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport has reported Stanley could see time at guard, but that's not the most likely scenario. Ultimately, we expect Stanley to open the season on Joe Flacco's blind side. Monroe could be released or traded for a late-round pick.
