Ravens select Houston LB Bowser in 2nd round of NFL draft

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

"If you would have told me yesterday at 3 o'clock in the afternoon that I was going to pick four defensive players [with my first four picks], I would have told you that you would not be correct", Newsome said after the fourth round. General manager Ozzie Newsome's picks in this draft have been under a different kind of microscope from the local media and the fans as the longtime leader of the Ravens player personnel made his decisions these last three days.

Other Aggies that went undrafted but signed free agent contracts were offensive tackle Avery Gennesy with the Jacksonville Jaguars, quarterback Trevor Knight and wide receiver Ricky Seals-Jones with the Arizona Cardinals, and linebacker Claude George with the Seattle Seahawks. Bowser's name first got hot just prior to the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine, and he proceeded to back up the buzz with a very strong testing performance.

The last two players to be selected with the first pick of the second round of the National Football League draft were New York Giants star safety Landon Collins in 2015 and Cleveland Browns promising pass rusher Emmanuel Ogbah past year.

"It's definitely a good pick for us", Harbaugh said.

"John Harbaugh came in and spoke to us once or twice", Wormley said.

Google takes aim at fake news, misleading search results
GoogleGoogle also says it is improving the guidelines its human workers use to evaluate content that appears in search results. Users can now report inaccurate or offensive snippets and autocomplete suggestions directly from the results page.

Baltimore had only 31 sacks last season and missed the playoffs after going 8-8. In the second, the Ravens grabbed Houston pass rusher Tyus Bowser, then in the third, added MI defensive lineman Chris Wormley and Alabama pass rusher Tim Williams.

Wormley put himself on the radar his last two years with the Wolverines, being named the team's Defensive Lineman of the Year both seasons. He is what you are looking for as far as that guy that can come in and cover tight ends. And that makes him a real solid third-round pick for the Baltimore Ravens.

Baltimore's solution is evidently to counter their opponents' weapons and hope they can even the playing field that way.

"We are not done acquiring players", Newsome said. The Ravens expressed interest in wide receiver Anquan Boldin and center Nick Mangold. "Productive player, gives you a little speed and versatility". The draft is a big part of it, and we are not done with the 53-man squad that we are going to play with when we open up against Cincinnati.

Wormley continues the run of U-M defensive players to John Harbaugh's Ravens in recent years. "We probably will still add some after that".
