Baltimore picked Ball State quarterback Keith Wenning with its final pick of the draft.

The Ravens have stated their desire to add another quarterback all offseason.

On Saturday, they got one by taking Ball State quarterback Keith Wenning in the sixth round with the 194th overall pick. This is a guy that was on the radar, as he visited the Ravens back in mid-April.

He set school records with 11,402 career yards, 92 touchdown passes, 1,035 completions and 1,642 attempts.

Wenning will compete with Tyrod Taylor for the No. 2 spot, but there could be a scenario where the Ravens carry three quarterbacks. The Ravens have long thought highly of Taylor, though he's entering the final year of his contract. If the Ravens carry Joe Flacco, Taylor and Wenning, then they'd ensure Wenning would have plenty of familiarity so that he could be a No. 2 quarterback if Taylor leaves for another team in 2015.

It's a fine pick and does fit a need the Ravens wanted to fill. It won't excite anyone because, ideally, Wenning won't see the field on Sundays in 2014.
