Ravens Draft Class Signed

All Rookies are Signed and Ready to Roll

The Ravens’ entire draft class is under contract heading into Friday’s start to rookie camp.

Baltimore inked top pick linebacker Courtney Upshaw, third-round running back Bernard Pierce and sixth-round wide receiver Tommy Streeter on Thursday evening.

The rest, second-round guard/tackle Kelechi Osemele, fourth-round guard/center Gino Gradkowski, fifth-round safety Christian Thompson, fifth-round cornerback Asa Jackson and seventh-round defensive tackle DeAngelo Tyson, were all signed over the previous two days.

Upshaw got a reported four-year deal worth $5.29 million with a $2.292 signing bonus, says The Carroll County Times’ Aaron Wilson and NFL Network’s Ian Rappaport.

Upshaw is the highest second-round draft pick to sign thus far.

All draft picks usually aren’t signed this quickly, which is a credit to the Ravens and Vice President of Football Administration Pat Moriarty. They were able to do so in part thanks to the new rookie wage scale, which largely automatically determines salaries
