Former River Hill and Wake Forest standout Michael Campanaro became the first 2014 draft pick to sign with the Ravens.

According to The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson, the two sides reached a quick agreement on Wednesday that officially welcomes him to the team.

The Ravens traded a 2015 sixth-round pick to Cleveland to get back into the draft in the seventh round at 218th overall. By giving up a selection from next year's draft, it's fairly safe to assume Campanaro will be on the 2014 roster, barring something unforeseen happening during training camp.

Campanaro was a solid slot presence for the Demon Deacons, though he did have some injury issues throughout his career. But when effective, he was one of the best in the ACC at shredding zones and finding ways to pick up first downs.
