Ravens selected Alabama OLB Tim Williams with the No. 78 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Williams (6’3/244) was a situational pass rusher at Alabama, collecting 19.5 sacks over his final two seasons but rarely seeing the field beyond sub-packages. Exposures to Williams defending the run and dropping into coverage are limited. In Indy, Williams tested as a 49th-percentile athlete with 4.70 speed and below-par three-cone results (7.36). An impact part-time player in college, Williams’ NFL future is less certain. He has failed multiple drug tests, carries work ethic concerns, and is old-ish for a rookie, turning 24 later this year. If Williams gets his head on straight, he projects best as a third-down rusher and special teams help.

Ravens selected Michigan DL Chris Wormley with the No. 74 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Wormley (6’5/298) made 30 starts for the Wolverines, piling up 33 tackles for loss with 18 sacks and first-team All-Big Ten honors from the conference’s coaches as a senior. Wormley has long arms (34 1/8") and big hands (10 ½") and posted the highest SPARQ rating among all draft-eligible defensive linemen with 94th-percentile results. Wormley is old-ish for a rookie (24 in October) and doesn’t show explosive twitch on tape, but he was consistently productive versus top competition, and NFL coaching could maximize his potential. Rotoworld’s Josh Norris has compared him to stud Steelers DE Cameron Heyward.

Ravens selected Houston LB Tyus Bowser with the No. 47 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Bowser (6’3/247) made 23 starts for the Cougars, finishing seventh in school history in sacks (21.5) despite playing basketball his first two years and missing five games with a fractured orbital bone as a senior. (He suffered the injury fighting a teammate.) Long armed (33 ¼") and supremely athletic, Bowser posted the highest SPARQ score among all edge prospects in Indy. Bowser’s run defense improved noticeably as a senior, and he flashed an ability to cover tight ends in space. While a project in some respects, Bowser offers a Bruce Irvinian skill set with plus versatility.

Ravens exercised ILB C.J. Mosley's fifth-year option for 2018.

The deadline to do so was May 3. Mosley was terrific last year, earning PFF's No. 11 grade out of 59 qualifiers at inside linebacker. It's probably just a matter of time until the Ravens lock the 24-year-old into a long-term contract.

Ravens selected Alabama CB Marlon Humphrey with the No. 16 overall pick of the 2017 NFL draft.

Humphrey (6’0/197) turned pro as a redshirt sophomore after starting 29-of-29 games in his Alabama career, recording five interceptions, three forced fumbles, and 13 pass breakups. The son of ex-Broncos RB Bobby Humphrey, Marlon posted a 4.41 forty, explosive 10-foot-5 broad jump, and agile 6.75 three-cone time in Indy. Also a violent tackler, Humphrey’s shortcoming is a tendency to get beat deep after allowing 17.4 yards per reception as a freshman and 16.3 yards as a sophomore. He also has no slot-corner experience. A rich man’s Dre Kirkpatrick, Humphrey profiles as a physical, type-A boundary defender with an outside chance to become a long-term No. 1 corner. Not yet 21 years old, Humphrey should offer significant room for growth.

Ravens re-signed WR Keenan Reynolds.

They also re-signed exclusive rights free agent OT De'Ondre Wesley and LB Brennen Beyer. Reynolds spent his entire rookie year on practice squad after getting waived at final cuts. He'll compete for a kick return role.
Apr 26 - 7:14 PM

Ravens S Eric Weddle says Joe Flacco has looked good early in the offseason program.

Flacco was recovering from knee surgery this time last year, and while the injury did not force him to miss any games, he did post some of the worst efficiency numbers of his career. Now healthy, Weddle expects Flacco to be "10 times better," and Flacco thinks getting in work this early in the offseason will give him "a better foundation." Hopefully, it will also allow him to be more aggressive and push the ball down the field.

Ravens re-signed OG Ryan Jensen to a one-year, $1.797 million contract.

James Hurst also signed his restricted free agent tender on Wednesday. Jensen logged 273 snaps over seven games for the Ravens including three starts last season. He first arrived in Baltimore as a sixth-round pick in 2013.
Apr 19 - 6:01 PM

Ravens re-signed WR Chris Matthews.

He was an exclusive rights free agent. Matthews spent all of last season on injured reserve. The Ravens need bodies at receiver after losing Steve Smith Sr. (retirement) and Kamar Aiken (signed with Indianapolis), but Matthews won't be a difference-maker.
Apr 19 - 5:51 PM

Ravens DE Bronson Kaufusi is expected to compete for a starting job.

A 2016 third-rounder, Kaufusi lost his rookie year to ankle surgery. He’s in the mix for snaps at the five-technique spot in Baltimore's 3-4. The Ravens have been impressed with Kaufusi's conditioning after concerns over his low body strength.

Ravens re-signed DB Lardarius Webb to a three-year contract.

Webb was released earlier this offseason for cap purposes. The new deal lowers his base salary and keeps him signed through 2019. Webb won't be a starter behind Tony Jefferson, but will push for snaps in the slot and as the No. 3 safety.
Apr 8 - 6:43 PM

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec reports the Ravens are expected to release CB Kyle Arrington at some point.

Entering the final year of his deal, Arrington is scheduled to count just under $2.8 million against the cap, and the Ravens can save $2.1 million by dumping him. Despite their needs at cornerback, Arrington has been a massive flop in Baltimore. He could be asked to take a pay cut to stick around.
Apr 7 - 8:41 AM

Ravens signed WR Michael Campanaro to a one-year deal.

The deal is worth a "maximum" of $2 million. A restricted free agent, Campanaro was tendered at the original-round/$1.797 million level, but the sides have agreed on a compromise. Campanaro's base money has been lowered but potential max earnings raised. Campanaro is a slot man who helps out on returns. The Ravens have a wide open receiver depth chart behind Mike Wallace.
Apr 6 - 3:25 PM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Ravens are "nearing a deal" with DB Lardarius Webb.

Baltimore cut Webb for cap reasons in early March, but a reunion always seemed to be in the cards. Webb played well in his first full season at safety last year, but he will return as depth behind Eric Weddle and newly-signed Tony Jefferson. Webb should also compete at slot corner, which is a role he played well in the past.

MMQB's Albert Breer reports Ravens coach John Harbaugh, Bengals coach Marvin Lewis, Saints coach Sean Payton, and Panthers coach Ron Rivera discussed adjusting the offseason work rules to allow more time with players with league officials this week.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians and Browns coach Hue Jackson also spoke on the topic during a larger session, and Breer reports almost all if not all coaches are on the same page. "Our players like when we coach them," Texans coach Bill O’Brien said. "I just think for this game to keep going the way it’s going, and it’s an awesome game, we need more time with the players." The newest CBA reduced each team's offseason program from 14 weeks to nine and limited the time coaches can spend doing on-field work with the players. Many coaches believe these limitations have hurt player development and the product on the field. With basically every coach campaigning, it will be surprising if the work rules are not adjusted in the next CBA.
