After posting two stories over the past 24 hours from two different sources, there is another list of undrafted free agents that are reported to be heading to the Baltimore Ravens. The first story and the second story had some similar players but neither seems to have the full list that Aaron Wilson reported in the Carroll County Times.
Anyone who follows the Ravens and reads Baltimore Beatdown knows that Wilson is one of, if not the most respected source of Ravens news other than the team itself. Therefore, if Aaron reports it, odds are it is true. With that in mind, if you choose not to click on the link to read his full story, at least click on the 'Jump' to read the full list he published on the players either signed or who have reached terms to sign with the team.
As Wilson wrote in the article, Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome knows a lot of a teams scouting success comes with the undrafted players, which has become a huge part of the basis for the great reputation the team has finding players either late in the draft or even long afterwards (Bart Scott, Jameel McClain, for example).
"Even though we’re done collecting players with draft picks, this starts the process of the undrafted college free agents as soon as the draft is over," Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said Saturday night. "We’re putting that process in place right now, working with the coaches. The coaches and the scouts are working together so we can attack that once the draft finishes."
Here is the list of undraft players heading to the Ravens from the story in the Carroll County Times:
Kent State center Chris Anzevino, Florida quarterback John Brantley, North Carolina cornerback Charles Brown, Morgan State tight end-H back Lamont Bryant, Mississippi State offensive lineman James Carmon, Illinois offensive lineman Jack Cornell, Clemson fullback Chad Diehl, Georgia fullback Bruce Figgins, Slippery Rock wide receiver Devin Goda, Syracuse wide receiver Dorian Graham, Alabama-Birmingham defensive tackle Elliott Henigan, Baylor defensive tackle Nick Jean-Baptiste, Tennessee fullback-linebacker Austin Johnson, Kent State defensive tackle Ishmaa'ily Kitchen, Clemson offensive lineman Antoine McClain, Alabama offensive lineman Alfred McCullough, Syracuse tight end Nick Provo, Wake Forest safety Chyl Quarles, Western Kentucky running back Bobby Rainey, Florida wide receiver Deonte Thompson and University of Texas kicker-punter Justin Tucker.
