14-year-old cancer survivor to announce Ravens' 1st pick

"The Ravens are thrilled that T.J.'s wish to announce our first-round draft pick on Thursday night has been granted".

Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome is very familiar with the Alabama Crimson Tide football program.

Cornerback Marlon Humphrey was the first former Alabama player chosen as the 16th pick overall by the Baltimore Ravens. With Eluemenor's selection, a Texas A&M offensive tackle has been selected in five consecutive NFL Drafts.

"I heard that you asked Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic to send you to the National Football League draft, and your wish is to announce the Ravens' first pick", Harbaugh said. "Wormley is a really good value pick right here in the third round for another Harbaugh".

Ultimately, Williams falls squarely into the category of a high-risk, high-reward pick.

"It was an opportunity for us to continue to put some strength into our secondary", Newsome said.

Ravens officials insist it wasn't the plan to ignore the offense for the first three rounds. Head coach John Harbaugh said everyone in the organizations knows and respects that strategy.

"It started because I had seen someone else do it first, so we were bored in the summer after conditioning and we just made a decision to go out and try it", Cohen said. I think he kind of tries to let his play do the talking for him, and when you see the tape, that is what it does. "That's what we've done, and it's turned out to be defence". Browser missed a month of the season with a broken orbital bone in his face suffered from a punch from a teammate.

The Alabama legacy left for the draft after playing for only two seasons at Alabama.

Wormley will also be coached by another Harbaugh, as the Jim-to-John NFL pipeline is appearing to be a fruitful one, with the Ravens selecting a Wolverine for the second straight draft with the selection of Willie Henry in the fourth round past year. His explosiveness and development into his full potential could work in the Ravens favor, and add on to the fact that Terrell Suggs will be there to mentor him.

In his four-year career at Michigan, Hill contributed 119 tackles, seven tackles-for-loss, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery, three interceptions and eight pass breakups.

Liverpool make major announcement: Jurgen Klopp said this
In his pre-match press conference, Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp took the time to explain why Brewster got the call up. Of course not - why should he? That's a wonderful step for him, the next step in his development.

"The Ravens are getting a great player", Bowser said.

Wormley was selected at No. 74 overall, a pick obtained from Philadelphia in the trade for Timmy Jernigan. He's 6-5 and 300 pounds, plays the run extremely well and though he's never going to be a prolific pass rusher, he's disruptive. The year before Allen finished second in the SEC with 12 sacks.

Humphrey wore a broad smile when he met with the media at the team complex late Friday afternoon. He will be part of a defence that has long had a reputation for being efficient, rugged and downright nasty.

Bowser is a good choice for being the best pick.

Humphrey had only two years of college experience and, at age 20, isn't old enough to drink alcohol in Maryland.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh expects Humphrey to make an immediate impact.

"What isn't there to like about this guy?"

"It hurts my heart because there are so many defensive guys!"

STILL NEED HELP: After going through free agency and the draft, the Ravens still don't have a deep threat besides Mike Wallace.

"I was like, man I hope I get a call from Baltimore", Bowser said of his workout earlier Friday.

That shouldn't be an issue this year.
