Ravens complete draft with five picks on Saturday

The Ravens wrapped up their draft by filling needs and getting depth for their roster.

In the fourth round, the Ravens selected Gino Gradkowski from Delaware. He’s a guard/center and the younger brother of quarterback Bruce Gradkowski.

Gradkowski is a 6-foot-2 , 300-pounder that will get a chance to learn under Matt Birk.

The Ravens finally ended their run on offense with their second pick in the fourth round when they selected safety Christian Thompson.
Thompson is out of South Carolina State. He will add depth to a position that was depleted with the departures of Tom Zbikowski and Haruki Nakamura in free agency.

The Ravens then shored up their return game and added to their defense with cornerback Asa Jackson in the fifth round.

In the sixth round, the Ravens addressed wide receiver by drafting Tommy Streeter. The Miami (FL) product is 6-foot-5 and weighs 219 pounds. He will compete for the third receiver role behind Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith.

The Ravens’ final selection was defensive lineman DeAngelo Tyson out of Georgia. Tyson will fill a need where the Ravens lost Brandon McKinney and Cory Redding to free agency.
