Report: Ravens off to fast start signing 2024 draft picks

OWINGS MILLS — The Ravens didn’t waste time reaching deals with their new generation of playmakers.

The team signed five of their nine 2024 draft picks heading into their rookie minicamp this weekend at the Under Armour Performance Center.

The Ravens signed:

It’s is an encouraging development because the players can focus on getting ready for the 2024 season rather than worrying about pending contracts.

Wiggins, Rosengarten, and Tampa will compete for starting jobs as rookies. Kane will provide valuable depth at safety behind Kyle Hamilton and Marcus Williams.

“In my opinion, Nate is the best cover corner in the draft,” Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta said. “[He’s] highly athletic [and has] fantastic feet. Really, in our opinion, [he’s] a guy that can go into being a true shutdown-type corner. … [Rosengarten] was one of our top players in the entire [second] round, and I think [we are] fortunate that we got him when we did.

“T.J’s athleticism at his size [stands out]. He’s long. He can flip his hips. He can change directions well. [He’s a] former wideout, so I think there is some built-in upside to him, as a player. He just kind of plays the game smoothly; he doesn’t look too stressed. He tackles well.”

The Ravens still have to sign outside linebacker Adisa Isaac, Penn State (second round); wide receiver Devontez Walker (third round); running back  Rasheen Ali (fifth round); and, quarterback Devin Leary (sixth round).

In addition, the Ravens also were granted an international roster exemption for outside linebacker David Ojabo, which allows the team to carry 91 players. Each team is eligible for international roster exemption. Ojabo was born in Port Harcourt, Nigeria, in 2000 and moved to Aberdeen, Scotland, in 2007.

Field Yates of ESPN was the first to report on the Ravens signing their draft picks.
